Happy Memorial Day!

May has been one of the busiest months that I have had in years!  Even though it was a bad month for blogging it was a good month for my soul, social life, tan and getting my summer cottage in tip top shape for the summer.  The next few weeks are going to be just as busy with trips to Montreal and NYC for work, Graduations, Kayak Trips and general Tom Foolery...  Hopefully I will be a bit better about chronicling it all here for you all to see.

Hope you all had an amazing long weekend (in the U.S).  I celebrated my freedom (thanks to people like my Grandfather, Grandmother, Mom and many dear friends who have served in the Armed Forces) by doing what any good American does... YARD WORK (along with several LONG walks between Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven).  Please to enjoy (thanks to Instagram) my Memorial Day Weekend....

Rebuilding the balcony thanks to some AWESOME friends (and free labor)

Bringing the garden back to life

Interesting garden decoration... a bit large for my taste, but I still love it

Bike Path between OB and Edgartown

Sunset Stroll

My first love and purest obsession

Hair style of the island.. all tied up....

Porch in the evening..  Who say's Xmas lights are just for Xmas?

My tiny garden! Now to get the grass to fill in....

East Chop, first leg of my 12 mile walk on Monday


A slight delay in my walk....

The weekend was just what I needed! Lots of R&R with family and friends.  Some good ole' fashion hard work to get the cottage ready for another crazy season.  Plus a fair amount of "me" time to reflect on all that I am blessed with!

I cannot wait to get back there.. It is truly where I am the most happy....

How did you spend your holiday weekend?
