Just like that it’s Labor Day and September 1rst.

It seems like this summer went by too quickly!!

Summer is my favorite season, I love the sun and the warm weather. (note, I do not love the humidity though)

Can’t complain, we had lots of gorgeous weather this summer and the two weeks I was off were pretty perfect too!

Happy Labor Day!

The Matchmaker

Another summer = another awesome read from Elin Hilderbrand!

The Matchmaker was an excellent book even if I needed a box of tissues at the end.  I was crying for Dabney Kimball Beech and her loved ones and I was crying because the story had ended.

From Amazon:

48-year-old Nantucketer Dabney Kimball Beech has always had a gift for matchmaking. Some call her ability mystical, while others – like her husband, celebrated economist John Boxmiller Beech, and her daughter, Agnes, who is clearly engaged to the wrong man – call it meddlesome, but there’s no arguing with her results: With 42 happy couples to her credit and all of them still together, Dabney has never been wrong about romance.

Never, that is, except in the case of herself and Clendenin Hughes, the green-eyed boy who took her heart with him long ago when he left the island to pursue his dream of becoming a journalist. Now, after spending 27 years on the other side of the world, Clen is back on Nantucket, and Dabney has never felt so confused, or so alive.

But when tragedy threatens her own second chance, Dabney must face the choices she’s made and share painful secrets with her family. Determined to make use of her gift before it’s too late, she sets out to find perfect matches for those she loves most. The Matchmaker is a heartbreaking story about losing and finding love, even as you’re running out of time.

End Of Summer Keratin

I am loving my new salon!!!

Have been going there since April when I got a keratin treatment.  They were having a half off special so I jumped on it!

Luckily they extended their special through the end of summer so I booked another treatment!  Turns out I got two this year for the price of one at my old salon!  : )



I love that they send me an email reminder for my appointments!  Also, I was only there for three hours!

My hair stylist is wonderful.  I am very lucky I found her in my search for a new salon!

Here is during color and after color/cut/keratin treatment!

Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries

There are certain authors that I have to have their books in hardcover!

Philip R. Craig was one of them!  He wrote a Martha’s Vineyard mystery series and I looked forward to them each summer.

He passed away in 2007 and has left a hole in my summer reading ever since.

His family did publish his unfinished books after his death.  I am grateful they shared those last books with his fans.

In my mind JW and Zee are relaxing and enjoying MVY with their family.

Unos Last Night

Went to Unos last night with the twins!



It used to be one of my favorite places to go, but now we only go once in a blue moon.

SO worth the wait for pizza skins!  YUM!

I have always loved their deep dish cheese and tomato pizza and it was so good!

We left room for dessert too!

But no.  Crazy collectors made a funny internet meme with my brother’s photo!
