Simplify Summer


Hi friends! I'm simplifying my Summer ....  but only with technology. Facebook, Blogging etc. are being put on the shelf to enjoy all that my favorite season has to offer. I'll be on Instagram though to keep all my memories in one place photo wise, so if you have an Instagram and would like to join me, head on over! I'm at: Cynthialaurensperin. 

While technology will take a back seat, I'm hoping to fill my summer with a long list of goals and to-dos..... So here it is:  I like to write things down so I'm more certain to fulfill each one. :)

* Visit with friends as much as possible is first... {Family is a given because they are home from college or they hang around more lol} * long evenings with dinner at the beach * leisurely shopping at local farmers markets and antiquing * spending nights starring at the stars on the patio * sunset dates with cocktails * evening boat ride buffets * North Fork wine country Vineyards * long village lunches * dinner alfresco tuscan style * clam bakes * long walks in the shade * shopping in the Hamptons * collecting sea shells and creating a few crafts with them * find a few fabulous page turning books to read on the deck * create new grilling recipes * make lots of berry pies * make homemade Jams and canning * yoga at our local beach * tend the garden * picnics in the cool shade * attempt kayaking * Dinner under the Brooklyn Bridge * visit NYC * ....  I think I've about covered it. Taking it slow, and lots of outdoor time is a must for everyone's spirit. I hope you enjoy yours and make memories that will last a lifetime!

Next summer I'll aim for Italy or Greece. :) 

I wish you all a wonderful Summer filled with blessings and good health!! 

Love, Cynthia xo

Wishing you a wonderful summer filled with all of the things that you enjoy Cynthia.
My life will also filled with all of the beautiful things that summer brings...tending my garden, replanting trees from my father's property onto mine, long walks with my dogs in the country and summer evenings spent with my husband and friends at our fire pit.

All the best to you Cynthia.

Hi Cynthia! It sounds like an exciting summer! Hope everything goes according to your plans! If you like detective stories, may I suggest books by Rhys Bowen. I think you would like them. They all take place in New York at the beginning of the 20th century and are full of enriching details of how life was in those days for New Yorkers. The stories center around Molly, her main character, who is a detective. They are real page turners. Have a lovely summer!

Let's see.....I have a few furniture painting projects and working on a video of my son, who is turning 30 at the end of the month. He has Down Syndrome so I hope to be able to use it in the future on other projects......Enjoying family and the outdoors....Oh so many things to do and enjoy! Have a great summer, Cynthia!!!

I work in the food industry as a chef. Which means, no holiday for me….but on those days off, I love to relax with a good glass of wine and some of my spinning (wool) , knitting, or reading through the big pile of books because I am waaaay behind…..
Have a nice holiday sweetie. xxx

History is really a pact involving the dead, typically the living, as well as the yet unborn.
