That one hit it out of the park. Brilliant! Loved every word of it! and the pictures are amazing! Did you take them?


I believe you are having a love affair with summer.
Beautifully written, and that from someone who is NOT a fan of the summer and never has been. =)

I first met your clan on that lovely porch. Is it possibly that I was there for Claire's birthday and that your mom made a delicious linguini with asparagus and shrimp dinner? I was in love with that house and with your family!

I am so glad you are feeling magical!


MIchelle yes! You have an excellent memory! That is one of my favorite summer dishes to this day! I am indeed having a love affair with summer, we broke up for a while, he was being a total dirty bastard but now we are once again madly in love!


Yay! I'm so glad you liked it Claire! Yes, I took those pics on my Blackberry today walking around the Manor with Terr-bear, next time I'll have to bring my camera!


Tonight, after moving and cleaning all day, I sat on the porch of our new home. I was contemplating the fact that I felt quite grownup when I saw all these little lights flickering. I literally skipped inside hollering "Ohhh baby!! There are lightening bugs outside!!!" Husband looked at me like I was cra-zay-zy! Couldn't help but be moved my your timing.


Loved your blog and agree wholeheartedly! Much of why I became a teacher is because of the beauty of Larchmont in the summer! Hope to run in to you and Terrance soon!


I love it Mandy. I hope you have a magical and wonderful summer with TerrBear. Thank you for exposing him to all these "pretty" things. Love you!
