In keeping with my promise to my sister to take a real, true blogging hiatus during our trip, I don't exactly have a fresh Graceful Summer post for you today. In fact, these photos were taken two years ago, during our last summer visit to Massachusetts. But be assured, right now, I am doing this:
Floating in my sister's pool...
Building sand castles at Rocky Neck Beach...
Cracking up with my sis and my BFF...
Sipping Chardonnay on the back porch, indulging in fresh New England seafood, cuddling my newborn cousin Casey and generally soaking up as much of my family as I possibly can.
As Mary Oliver says in her poem "Sometimes":
So I'm doing exactly that this week.
I'll be back on Monday -- thanks for the Graceful hiatus!
