When my son, Scott, was just 3 months old we bought our first home on Pleasant Pond in Wenham Ma. It was a small house...but it was home. We would walk to this small beach..it felt like it was our own private beach. And there was a hill behind the pond that lead into the woods..We used to take a walk up that hill and called it "Scott's Mountain". We sold the house when Scott was about 3 1/2 But It is fun to take a drive down to the pond every now and then and reminisce.
It was 90 degrees in Northeastern Massachusetts today and even into the early evening. Went to Newburyport by the ocean and this young man was playing his violin. At this young age, he was delightful to listen to.
My friend Mary and I left at 10:00 a.m. this morning heading down to Sheep Pasture in Easton MA. Never made it....we took a wrong turn and ended up in Newport RI....When I took the wrong turn we decided to continue on our "road trip". Unfortunately we left behind the 80 degree weather in MA and went in to the cool 50 degree weather by the water. All in all it was a fun day. Thanks Mary!
Attended the Nordstrom's Grand Opening Gala at the North Shore Mall in Peabody Ma tonight. Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to three non-profit charities here on the North Shore (Massachusetts). It was a fun evening with over 1200 people in attendence. This is one of the many "live" models that they had on display. Fun time.
“I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity... I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not--more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.” ~Beverly Sills
Happy Monday! The only photos I took today were of my Neighbor's Condo for the on-line real estate muliple listing. (so i thought i would make one of the photos a monochrome monday photo) She has put her condo up for sale...and i will miss her dearly when she moves. She has been the best neighbor ever.
I am attending the Nordstrom's Grand Opening Gala at our local mall this month. I found a sassy, chic, fun dress to wear.
Nordstroms holds a Grand Open Gala when ever they open a new store. It is a huge fundraiser at the Store with dinner, drinks, music and shopping. Nordstroms selects 3 non-profit organizations to donate the proceeds from this event. The Non-Profit Hospital that I work for and do fundraising for, is one of the recipients for this Opening. We are expectind about 1,000 people to attend...It Sounds like a fun fun evening.
