weekend in pics.

Friday night sushi.
Bedside table carnations (sidenote: I don't know why these get such a bad rap--I love them and they last forever).

Yet another western Mass. lunch at my favorite place.

I had a pretty solid weekend--I ran a bunch of errands Saturday morning (which included picking up cotton candy grapes--so weird but good), had lunch with my sister and then made crabcakes for dinner. On Sunday I went to my grandparents' house to help with sorting through my grandmother's things--it was tough at times, but it was great to bring back memories and share stories with everyone. I'm hoping this week goes fast--work has been rather stressful lately and I'm seriously counting down the days until Labor Day weekend.


  1. Carnations are hearty and pretty at the same time. I like to think they embody us New England woman - we're also hearty and pretty.

  2. Blood Pressure Protocol

    Sunlight is the body's main supply of Vitamin D which is necessary for strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D is in almost every tissue so it is important for the health of the whole body. However, 50% of people over 50 have low levels of this vitamin which is not present in many of our foods. Studies have shown that a lack of it can lead to diabetes, depression, heart disease, hip fractures, muscle spasm and multiple sclerosis.
