City life is fun–there are always a ton of parties in the summer. Here I am at the opening of the restaurant Covet with my friends Erin (left) and Kristine (right). Ramona Singer from The Real Housewives of NYC was there, but I missed her! Bummer.
Yes, I love the city. But for the Fourth of July, some friends rented a farmhouse we’d been to in the summer of 2008, and I fell in love with the country all over again… Not to be all Miley Cyrus, but it does feel like the best of both worlds.
On the drive up, Dave posed with Jacob at Burger King. This makes me laugh:
Reading on the front porch (in a swing that rocks. Seriously, like back-and-forth rocks):
Playing badminton:
Walking to the swimming hole:

The swimming hole itself, where I sat on that log and read an ARC of Robin Benway’s The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June, though you can’t see that I’m trying to hold it up here:
On the porch, there was a little baby swallow gearing up to leave its nest and we all watched it throughout the weekend. It felt symbolic or something, and I know it’s flown by now!
There may have been some fireworks…
And perhaps a little light beer pong before bed…
Of course, there were also s’mores around the fire pit.
I heart summer! What are you guys up to this month? Happy July!

    what a fabulous visual tour of your summer so far. Love seeing you in so much action. And to think: You almost saw Ramona!

    Looks like bliss! Me? I love road-trips that take you on those rarely used roads. Give me somewhere you can actually smell the woods and I’m in love.
    I swear my next home is going to be somewhere in the endless mountains in NY. The higher up the better. (Hugs)Indigo

    This is so awesome. How was April, May and June? I loved Audrey, Wait!

    Love it! I went to a cottage last weekend – a very rustic one, with a Finnish sauna!
    Also, just wondering, how do you get your pictures to look all old-school like that?

  5. S says:

    Jealous :) Looks like you had an excellent time.
    I’d love to rent a house, preferably near the beach…le sigh.

  6. I love the style of these photos so much that I want to write a story to go along with each of them.
