Wow, I feel like I just a lost a game of hide and seek with Summer. Like, where’d she go?
Just when I finally started to enjoy Summer, she left me, until next year. (I know technically we still have a bit of summer left, but it all seems to go downhill after Labor Day.)
We moved into our new place Memorial Day weekend and my days have been filled with our version of HGTV Renovation as well as learning a few hard to swallow lessons on the joys of home ownership.
Prior to moving into our new place, I was convinced that I absolutely could not live anywhere that needed home renovations. Although this place is far from a fixer upper, we have had to tweak some things to make it “our own.”
Hubs has definitely been a rock star. He dug deep, pulled out his inner “handyman”, and shocked the hell out of me! Having a man around the house who can actually fix things is sexy as hell! In addition, he saved us lots of money because every time I wanted to hire someone to install or fix something, my man stepped right up to the plate. At this very moment, he is working on my soon to be new and improved closet.
Although it seemed as if every weekend revolved around our new place, I did manage to squeeze in some quality time with Summer. Earlier, I made a list of things I wanted to do and with some help, I was able to cross some items off that list.
I finally made it to a beach this year. We took our first trip up to Montauk and it was both relaxing and delicious! While there, I ate my very first lobster roll and we stopped by a winery where we tasted my new favorite Riesling bring my wine loving levels to new highs.
Thanks to my gym membership that I barely use, we took a boat cruise around the city with a few friends. Such a pretty way to see the city.
Hubs surprised me with a picnic dinner in Chelsea complete with Prosecco and an orgasm worthy chocolate cheesecake that literally melted in my mouth. He also made sure we took a quick detour through the Highline as well.
My sister threw my mother a huge party for her retirement and it was awesome seeing all of our family and friends there to celebrate such a deserving person.
I had the distinct pleasure of celebrating the love between two very important people and seeing the love on their faces almost made me cry. I wish them all the love in their new marriage.
How was your summer?
