Where's Your Happy Place?

For me, summer would not be complete without a week at the beach. There's just something about packing up the car with beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, a cooler, and a suitcase with nothing but shorts, bathing suits and flip-flops and heading out for a week of pure relaxation. We have a few favorite spots, but we always seem to go back to Maushop Village in New Seabury on Cape Cod. There's just something a little magical about this idyllic, Nantucket-style village overlooking the ocean. Quite simply, it's our happy place. What about you? Where's your happy place?

Growing Up

Today is the last day of school for the year, and Emma's last day of elementary school. I can't believe how quickly five years went by and how much Emma has grown. It's definitely bittersweet.

Happy summer!

First & last day of elementary school.
