merrymaking 6.15.2012


They say summer is a time to catch your breath. Are you doing anything relaxing this weekend to breathe a bit? With vacation prep, an outdoor dinner party this week and more projects then I could ever actually complete, my mind has been running full speed lately. I am looking forward to the weekend and the chance to stop to enjoy the season. I will see you Monday with a new weekly series produced by one of my favorite bloggers (it is so pretty!). Until then…

And, we’ve started back up my favorite summer tradition. I love our porch!

    I think summer is one of the most busy times! Dinner parties, beach days, camping trips, amusement park vacations…I have a busy summer myself!! Tomorrow I’m heading into NYC for a Roaring 20’s themed Jazz Fest. I am so excited! Happy Friday!

    How I love that image Victoria – gorgeous! It’s cold, wet and miserable here in Sydney. Please think of me as you are enjoying that wonderful summer tradition of yours!

    Hugs and a happy weekend to you, Stephie x
