going with the flow

it's hard to get much done with a baby in the house, even a tiny furry one ~ because i just couldn't tear myself away. i love babies, any kind, pink, blue, or furry. actually, i wanted to volunteer at the hospital to hold the babies, and guess what, there's a waiting list. can you believe it?

lots of spontaneity going on here, which to me is the essence of summer ~ just going with the flow, pure bliss! sunday we went on a bike ride through marblehead, (where we grew up) and ended with a picnic lunch at grace olivers beach at peach's point, my favorite spot in town. marblehead is such a beautiful new england sea side town. if you have a chance to visit i'm sure you will agree it has loads of charm with it's quaint downtown, historic landmarks, and unique shops. known as the sailing capitol of the world, which is pretty amazing for a tiny town, and it houses the famous spirit of '76 painting at abbot hall. check out my dad's photos to see more. speaking of marblehead, stop by carol's blog and say hello, she's new!

my absolute favorite store downtown is o'rama's which has a european frenchy feel, and is all girly. suzy the owner, packs the tiny shop full of the finest goodies, all with a vintage feel. digging through her wares is half the fun! i think just about every pair of earrings i own are from her shop, collected over the years.

of course i couldn't mention a bike trip without a little shopping or eye candy stop!

xo, heidi
