The Summer That Was: Part 1

Hope everyone reading this had a wonderful summer, and by wonderful I mean filled with family and moments to remember. For me Summer 2012 was packed with lots of "wonderful"! I'm going to break things down into a three part blog post titled: THE SUMMER THAT WAS.

Welcome to Part 1!

June 2012

My large and incredible family got together, as we do every June, for our week at the beach. Over one hundred of us descend upon a tiny beach town in Southern New Jersey. We meet on the beach each day and sit together in one big gathering. Talking, laughing, reminiscing. There are parties and traditions and it all adds up to one thing: a magical week.

Our living room makeover project finally drew to a close. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
The new bar and cabinets were built in a once useless corner that housed a dumb table and chasable dust bunnies.

The new bookshelves we had built brighten the entire room, and moving our TV to above the fireplace opened up everything.

And lastly, the Apocalypsies signing event at the Philadelphia Barnes & Noble turned out to be a fun day, meeting new people and hanging with good friends.

Hope you tune in to Part 2 on Wednesday!

Do share your favorite moment from summer in a comment. I'd love to read all about it....
