August started off pretty quiet. I spent the first full week house-sitting for family in North port. It was a peaceful time filled with puppy & kitty kisses. I have a serious soul connection with Paquin.
// Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
I'm sure everyone has read it by now. It is such a quick read, yet I took my sweet-ass time reading it. I enjoyed it. It was nice to re-visit the world. I also would love to see the play so I could see visually how they put on this story.
// Beach & Tomatoes!
I absolutely love living so close to the beach. I mean...when you live on LI you are technically always close to the beach. We are particularly close to one, and it is so relaxing to just go for an hour or two and enjoy the sun. We got to experience the beach a lot in August. My favorite was going in the morning and reading for a couple of hours. One day we actually visited twice in one day (between my petsitting jobs) and went swimming! I have not gone swimming in LI water in a very long time.
Ant started a garden this year and August brought on our first tomatoes! It was SO exciting. We celebrated by making homemade pizzas and cocktails.
// ATE OYSTERS, YA'LL!
On the 20th, Ant, Liss, Sam and I traveled to Milford, CT to visit Amy, Alex & Andrew. Their town was holding its annual Oyster Festival. It's huge and insane! The whole town pretty much shuts down and there is tons of vendors, music and food. Of course since I was at a festival themed after oysters, I definitely had to try them. I tried fried,roasted & raw. All were very good, but I prefer the fried. (duh, anything fried is good.)
// B&E 8.28.16
I have been waiting for this date for 9 months. Last November, one of my very, best friends got engaged and immediately started planning her wedding. The day finally arrived! I was honored to be the Matron of Honor and Ant was an honorary member of the bridal party. Brittney gave him the job of "videographer" and he filmed the whole weekend. It was tons of fun and looking back, I just can't believe it has come and gone. Time seriously moves so fast.
