Friday Fragments




This fire was the view from my chair last night, as I caught up with some friends at a lake cottage only thirty minutes away from my house. We don't see each other as much during the summer, since everyone is busy with vacations and family commitments, so it was wonderful to give all these women a hug and hear about their lives since our last book club. These are friends who sincerely want to know about how you have been, how your children are doing and it leaves you with a warm feeling at the end of the night. We also laugh a lot and just enjoy each other's company so much. A casual girl's night out with a glass of wine, is the best kind of night.



I just finished reading Summer Secrets by Jane Green and though I have enjoyed her books in the past, I can't say this was my favorite. It as her typical British girl in America story and while I did enjoy the setting and descriptions of Nantucket, the rest of the story fell a little flat and was pretty predictable. Luckily it was a quick read and there are plenty of other books on my summer reading list to look forward to.


I'm still feeling happy that I was able to see Megan for dinner this week and catch up with her life. Though we text almost every day and I'm thankful for the technology that makes it so easy to keep in touch, there is really nothing like giving your child a hug in person and seeing their smile. And, I get to see her again in just a few weeks :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. In person and hugs are the very best . . .

  2. Time spent with friends for visits and giggles, (some wine too) is the best medicine ever!

  3. It is nice to enjoy friendship with a good book, chat and a glass of wine.
    Thank you so much for placing my blog in your blogroll, this is very kind of you. Have a lovely Sunday. x

  4. Nothing like getting together with the women we love!

  5. I know exactly what you mean both about girlfriends and daughters! Time spent with both truly feeds our souls! Did you read Katie's post about the author lunch on The Cape? Jane Green was one of the featured authors.


Thanks for reading!
