Family In Maine

Very lucky to have been able to go to Maine with my Mom and twin brothers.

My pita brother says he isn’t interested, so we leave him in charge at home.

One thing all four of us can agree on is seafood!  (and desserts!)

New Uses For Old Boyfriends

new uses for old boyfriends

I love chick lit and good beach reads!

I also love Beth Kendrick’s style of writing and her Black Dog Bay characters!

From Amazon:

After growing up in privilege and marrying into money, Lila Alders has gotten used to the good life. But when her happily-ever-after implodes, Lila must return to Black Dog Bay, the tiny seaside town where she grew up. She’s desperate for a safe haven, but everything has changed over the past ten years. Her family’s fortune is gone—and her mother is in total denial. It’s up to Lila to take care of everything…but she can barely take care of herself.

The former golden girl of Black Dog Bay struggles to reinvent herself by opening a vintage clothing boutique. But even as Lila finds new purpose for outdated dresses and tries to reunite with her ex, she realizes that sometimes it’s too late for old dreams. She’s lost everything she thought she needed but found something—someone—she desperately wants. A boy she hardly noticed has grown up into a man she can’t forget…and a second chance has never felt so much like first love.

The weather wasn’t 100% sunshine on Sunday (6/21) in Maine, but that didn’t matter.

Since it was the first day of the summer that called for the first lobster of the summer too!
