Summer Starts

While the weather was only fully on board a couple of days, last weekend started my summer. I hope it never ends.Image





Island Bound

“So many nights I just dream of the ocean

God I wish I were sailing again

Oh, yesterdays over my shoulder

So I can’t look backward for too long

There is just too much to see waiting in front of me

And I know now that I juts can’t go wrong.”

Jimmy Buffett, 1977 Changes In Latitude, Changes In Attitude

Garden Girls

Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of spending a mother/daughter day in Boston with the Mamacita. Not only was fabulous to spend some QT with my #1 Mom but it was also a pristine 70 degrees and sunny for the first time in what feels like centuries. To ice the cake we got to hang in my old neighborhood of Beacon Hill. I tell you, that perfect slice of the city still holds a big place in my heart. Yesterday it was in all its glory. We were there to tour private Beacon Hill residential gardens. For one day we were allowed behind the brick walls that line the idyllic cobblestone streets. While the gardens were lovely, I must say the flower boxes of Beacon Hill seriously rival these swanky private gardens. Do the Grande Dames of The Hill have an unofficial contest every year to see who can create the most breathtaking sidewalk accessory? I wonder what the prize is. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.

Aurthur’s Amazing Tale

When I tell people what I do for a living, about 35% say the same thing: I am not flexible enough to do yoga. Spend a few minutes and meet Aurthur. He is incredibly inspiring and his story highlights just how powerful this transformational practice can be. Flexibility is clearly not a requirement.
