It’s the last week of summer! Kind of hard to believe, huh? Working for myself has most definitely made me more conscious of the passage of a year, likely because now the goals and my “must get done” list are much more tangible. I’m thankful for that pressure, though. It’s pushed me to take advantage of each season, and I really felt that this summer. For the first time in years I’ve felt the sun on my face and sand in my toes as much as I really needed. Well, one could always use more, but collectively this summer involved over a month on or by an ocean- the one place that without fail washes away those gnawing feelings of anxiety. In short, its my happy place.

We’ve got good eats and good reads coming your way this week. In the mean time, if you’re hankering for recipes- hit the CC recipe archive! There’s gold in there in the form of summer desserts, killers salads, and BBQ delights. Here’s to a great week.

    Clara, love these pictures!
    Yes, it feels so relaxing to be on or by an ocean (well, I’m walking every day near the Mediterranean sea:-)
    Even if I work from home, the vacation spirit of the place creates a completely different feeling.
    Have a good week!

  2. Lovely photos! Can’t believe summer is basically over… too soon, for sure.


  3. I can’t believe summer is almost over - too much work for me this summer to get to the beach as much as I’d like but hopefully next year I’ll find more of a balance with it all. Hope you’re having a lovely time on the Cape!
