Hello, Summertime


Hello again, everyone! Long time (by long time, I mean five months!) no talk. 
 A little late on this but...
Happy Summer! 

The photo above is a typical summer scene in my humble abode. It's been so hot here lately- haven't put the A.C. in the window yet- the cats have resorted to lounging on my bed all day and night as pictured. Don't you feel for them? Such a tough life!

These past five months have been busy ones, to say the least! I graduated from graduate school in May, earning my Masters degree in Library & Information Science (That's right! I'm now officially a professional librarian!) Now if only I could find a job... Which is what I have been scouring the earth for relentlessly, all while simultaneously working full-time as a legal assistant in an attorney's office. Now you see why I've been absent all these months! But I haven't forgotten you, nor have many of you shown you have forgotten me! I've so appreciated all the kind e-mails and words about my blog throughout my absence, from old followers and new! You all have really revealed to me how special this little blog has been these past few years, not only for me, but for you as well! And that's what counts the most. So I'm back! And I hope to stay for the long haul once again.


Aren't the hydrangeas in my front yard gorgeous? To me, they are the quintessential summer flower. Grouped with honeysuckle, they are the essence of summer to me. Oh, summer. Aside from autumn, you are my very favorite ♥

Speaking of autumn! I have a New England excursion planned (remind me to update the excursion ticker on the page!) This October, the weekend before Halloween, Jake and I will be going to...
Marblehead!

I'm so excited- I haven't been there since 2009, and have been dying to go back ever since! We'll be staying for three nights at the Harbor Light Inn, and have plans to visit Boston the Sunday we're departing. I am counting down the days! Scratch that, the minutes!

The Harbor Light Inn

There's also a potential excursion in the works this August... I won't go into details just yet, but let's just say if it does happen, it will be a once in a lifetime, unforgettable trip. I'll let you know more about it soon!

Off to bed now for me. Tomorrow I'm setting off to Gettysburg for the 150th anniversary!
That means hoop skirts and corset donning all weekend... Goodbye, 21st century!
Have a great weekend, everyone. Feels good to be back again!

P.S. - Did any one catch the Strawberry Moon last weekend?
It was spectacular, particularly glimmering over the ocean...


"But it's June. At night the windows are open, fireflies flicker in the meadow, the stars are like apple blossoms, and the moon rides like a silver galleon in a deep wave of night. I stretch out in a deck chair under the shadowy trees, and tiredness goes out of my heart. It's a good world to be alive in, when it's a warm sweet June night."
