six smiles.

July is quickly coming to a close, and August promises to bring more summer fun with it.  Summer is my favorite season and I try to soak up every ray of sun and fun I can.  This week a friend told me I was a great “Summer Mom.”  I laughed, knowing that I don’t like to venture too far in the winter – cold weather is not my thing.  Summer’s my time to shine!   Here are 6 things that brought a smile to my face this week:

~ balloons flying high over a friend’s 4oth birthday party~

~ Sunday morning sticky buns from Flour Bakery at Fort Point Channel, Boston~

~Sea salt soap from Lula’s Pantry, a shop filled with little luxuries on the waterfront in Rockport.  Exfoliates, heals, and smells like the ocean. Bliss.~ get it here.

~THE BEST BAND-AIDs for healing my skin after I survived a really bad mosquito attack on my ankles and feet~

~An unexpected nighttime tweet from a friend – because we were working together the next morning. Priceless.~

~ an intricately beaded clutch by Megan Park that arrived on my doorstep via UPS.  From French and Italian.~

Hope you welcome August with a smile!
