Earl and Girls

Labor Day weekend is so bittersweet isn't it? I remember as a kid growing up on the Cape we would stand on the overpass looking over the highway and wave goodbye to all the tourists. I think that's when I realized how lucky I was to live where I did....

This weekend started out with the arrival and quick departure of Earl. He was nothin. After he left, the rest of the weekend was gorgeous. Our friends came down from NH and this time brought the husbands and spent the night. We had a fabulous spread out on the beach....good food, wine, s'mores..and lots and lots of laughs.
Hannah and Earl in the background. See...nothin.
Me and my boys.

Me and my girls...

Hannah and her girls..

I am a lucky girl.
Can you still call yourself a girl when you're...42? Cuz I do.


  1. YES!! We are still girls!
    This looked like a perfect weekend...Earl and all!
    Back to school for us on today was bittersweet...gray and rainy too!

  2. Yep! A girl you are!

    Just found your blog.....nice to meet you!

  5. wonderful pics here!! Hugs to you!

  6. So happy you had a great weekend, and Earl was nothing! Love your pictures with the boys and girls...Durlfriends are the best! xo

  7. I've wondered how meeting Earl went.
    And don't you love it when your boys start being taller than you and they have to lean over to hug you? There's just something about it . . .

  8. Glad your Labor Day weekend was a great one!
    Glad Earl turned out to be nothin'
    and glad I'm not the only 42 year old still calling myself a girl!!:)
    Enjoy the day

  9. We were at the Outer Banks during Earl, and stayed, despite the mandatory evacuation. We never even lost power! I'm thankful it wasn't worse, though.

  10. So glad Earl was a gentleman! Honey-chile this ole gal is STILL a girl. Forever! xoxo
