How is 2015 already halfway over? I can’t believe how quickly it’s flying by. Thought I had during the July 4 fireworks: that it could serve as a sort of mid-point New Year’s to check in with how the year’s going so far and get a fresh start for the second half. Going to try to keep that in mind going forward. In less serious news, here are some recent snapshots.
I’ve been loving the warm, sunny summer mornings, like the recent one where I snapped this shot of the Prospect Hill Monument. One of my favorite places in Somerville.We were fortunate enough to spend three whole days up in new Hampshire for the Fourth of July this year and lucked out with almost all great weather (minus a few rainy hours on Saturday).We spent lots of time lounging outside, reading, sailing, golfing, paddle boarding (see below), eating, walking and just relaxing.King of the paddle board!Paddle boarding was so fun. Mike and I had done it before but this was even better. It felt so joyful.Michael tried his hand at it too and had so much fun he laughed himself right off of the thing!Ice cream in town was a must. We walked around just enjoying the beautiful evening, including new art that’s cropping up in Meredith.OK, now you’re just showing off.We had a lobster feast for the Fourth, which was delicious and wonderful.Topped it off with our own personal fireworks show on the dock with this silly guy. We didn’t leave home but got to take in about 10 fireworks displays that neighbors and other lake residents shot off. It was magical! We also resurrected some lanterns for a little wedding throwback. Loved setting them off again–it brought back such beautiful memories.Such a special night. Wish it didn’t have to go by so fast and end so soon.
