Scenes from the Weekend

I’m starting to notice a trend… A Monday night scenes from the weekend post, usually symbolizes a rather awesome weekend.

This one in particular, no exception.

And I mean, I know the weekend is technically Friday through Sunday, but can we take a second to appreciate last Thursday’s sunset? Because it’s sunset porn at its finest.

When asked what the original plan for my weekend was on Friday morning, I would have said pool party with friends and two days of R&R. 

Well, what fun is a predictable weekend?

Following a wonderful pool party and BBQ with friends on Friday night, I did get my day of solid R&R on Saturday, spending the morning at the local Farmer’s Market (buying local of course) and the afternoon on the beach curled up with a book, which I finished (Clipped Wings). I then curled up with another book, A Hundred Summers, which I read in my favourite chair, from start to finish viewing both the sunset and the starlight of midnight.

It was pure bliss. 

On Sunday, my parents threw a last minute birthday bash for my uncle, because this summer we party. It’s how we do. My parents retired and became the Jay Gatsby of St. Thomas by the Sea. Come by anytime, glitter, champagne and adultery optional.

And now, here’s your own personal look at summer time on the East Coast, when the living is easy.

  1. Your weekends are greater than all others.
    Lovely earrings my love.
    Devoured Gone Girl last weekend and loved every second of it.

  2. Just finished Landline recently! It was the loveliest.

    I mean.
