late summer

We’ve been soaking up these late summer days, as the seasons are starting to change. It’s getting dark earlier, the nights are cool, and the mornings are brisk (well maybe not this week, but last week!).

a vineyard weekend

Over the weekend, we went to the Vineyard with some friends from HBS. It rained Saturday morning, but other than that the weather was perfect. We went on the boat, ate lots of yummy food, lounged in the sun and in the shade, and we even saw a double rainbow (more pictures here)! We didn’t […]
