I feel like a new person after we finally got a few days of sunshine in Connecticut! We are especially enjoying the warm weather now that we have a backyard in our new house. Our cockapoo Rory is quite possibly the happiest pup on the planet! He loooves playing fetch (these squeaky balls and this nerf gun are his favorites) and it’s so nice to be able to throw to him in the backyard vs. going to the park all the time. There’s an old Adirondack chair out there and I’ve spent a few evenings reading or working in the shade while he runs around the yard. Of course he’s happier when Will is home since he has a much better arm (you’ll see I pretty much only throw pop-ups 😂) but little does Rory know he’ll be getting lots of family time on Nantucket all summer! P.S. Will’s mom taught him how to high five and shake and I still think it’s the cutest thing in the world!
I haven’t gotten back into a good reading routine since our move (you know, almost six months ago 🙈) — I blame the fact that my iPhone 7 won’t sync with the Bluetooth in my car so I can’t listen to Audible while I drive (any ideas?!). In any event, Kate Schelter just sent me a copy of her new book Classic Style and I’ve been hanging on every word (and watercolor!). I purchased one of her tennis watercolors for Will’s birthday last year and would happily fill our home with her paintings if I could afford them all! Her musings on timeless style and all the accompanying illustrations are a true delight and the perfect companion for a warm summer evening. Congratulations, Kate!
