I’m in San Francisco! How cool is that? I’ve been to a lot of different places around the world, but can you believe that this is my first time to California? The Mr. had some business meetings and I decided to tag along. We’ve spent the past two days in Sonoma and today we’re back in San Fran for a few more days before heading home.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “I would love to give golf a try, but I just don’t have the time”? This is one of the biggest complaints that I hear from friends who have expressed interest in the game. They often give up the idea given the amount of time it takes to play a round of 18. Well, here’s a little secret I’m going to fill you in on that maybe comes as a surprise: you do have time for golf! You just have to get creative;)
This time next week I’ll be in DC for a six-week long break from Barbados. The island is super hot, empty with everyone traveling to visit family, and the kids are out of school looking for something to do. So the timing is perfect. Gwyneth and Jackson will adore the attention Grandma and Grandpa provide, and I’ll revel in the shopping selections and central AC. It’s absolute bliss!
Did you watch the final day of the Women’s US Open this past weekend? It was both thrilling and heart breaking as Anna Nordqvist and Brittany Lang went head-to-head in a playoff. Playoffs are always exciting, but the heart breaking part was when Anna touched the ground with her club while she was in a bunker, received a penalty for it, and lost the match.
Happy Friday! Aren’t short weeks great? Especially when they’re kicked off with bbq, beer, and fireworks!
Glorious days at the beach, staying up as late as the sun, barbecues, ice cream trucks, running barefoot all day, everyday…summer has countless activities every kid loves. But along with those amazing experiences, also comes this one terrible, terrible phrase so many parents here, “I’m bored.”
Two words said over and over again. I’m not really a must-entertain-my-child-every-second-of-everyday kinda mom. I would lose my mind. However, on occasion I’ll throw together a few ideas for Gwyneth and I to do together, and almost always we both have a grand time;) So begins my little blog series for the next couple months – Summer Projects for Kids: Bake A Cake.

The holiday weekend is just a few days away and I can’t think of a better way to spend it than at the cottage. Whether your family owns one, you’re in a rental for the weekend, or simply visiting some friends, time by the lake just can’t be beat!
