  • A Vacation Diary: Day One

    (originally published on July 22, 2013)


    Day One:

    • buckwheat pancakes with blueberries
    • champagne with pureed strawberries
    • discovering the most awesomest logo ever (see above)
    • a lazy nap
    • reading on the porch with a fuzzy puppy at my feet
    • silence -- except for the birds chirping, a distant drone of a Cape Air plane, and the low punctuated horns of a whale watch boat backing out of its slip
    • warm sun + a slight breeze
    • a glass of Riesling
    • two glasses of Riesling
    • cheddar melted on my burger
    • a pile of green beans
    • a second nap
    • salted caramel in my ice cream
    • a chocolate covered potato chip
    • crawling into bed before the sun sets

    And this:

    I'm technically still on my summer bloggy break but I wanted to really capture the awesome things about vacation -- especially the little things, the things that don't make it into the Big Story of the Day. I also share a lot of photos from these moments over on Instagram and on Twitter
