Weekend wishes

Ingredients: comfy clothes, comfy shoes, pool, good company, and a large cocktail.

Mix one part super straight denim....

With one part summery shirtdress...

And add fabulously funky sunnies...

Not exactly what I had in mind, but I could go for it all the same..?

Happy weekend :)

Independence Day

Independence Day commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring our nations independence from the kingdom of Great Britain. We took a look at the Declaration of Independence in the newspaper that day, and were reminded of a time in our childhoods where we were required to memorize it.

"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

What strikes me most about this sentence is that our Country fought to have the right to pursue happiness. Isn't that amazing? In honor of that topic, I celebrated with my college roommate, Clare, and her family for the weekend in Minnesota. You wouldn't expect it, but the weather was perfect and I came back with a tan (and a neck ache from tubing!)
some relaxing on the dock...
this is sweet Clare:
Some skiing...this is Pete. I don't think I stayed up long enough for a photo op ;)
Some fishing...(Pete's fish)
some reading in the evening... And some wine and talking after sundown...

It was a great vacation and I'm hit hard with a busy (short) week at work! Happy Wednesday :)

This is Henry. He says good morning, and welcome back to work (to those of us who had yesterday off). He wanted to let you know that normal blogging will resume shortly. His aunt (writer of daily ann-tidote) is currently under a pile of phone calls and invoices, but will dig from the pile shortly. Some call him Henry Penry, or Hen Pen. He has bright red hair and puffy cheeks perfect for squeezing.
