close-to-perfect summer weekend.

oh what a weekend it was.  i helped create a garden themed wedding with my friend kate, watched the olympic opening ceremony with friends & in honor of the festivities, happily ate fish and chips.  the garden is flourishing and i'm loving all the plump red tomatoes, the second wind of strawberries, and of course, some tasty greens.

i'm a huge fan of the olympics.  after six years without cable, we finally conceded and have loved watching the games.  thus far, my favorites have been womens volleyball, rowing (of course), and men's water polo for the win.  while the olympics are on, i'm pretty much useless & can't do much of anything else.  i'm on the edge of my seat awestruck by the close calls, cheering along with the crowds and occasionally jumping out of joy or sorrow for team usa.

new york has gifted us with some very rad friendships and after an hour and a half drive to sackets harbor, ny, i enjoyed a fantastic brunch with some of my favorites.  we drank mimosas on the patio while indulging in some of the greatest brunch fare ever.  stuffed french toast?  please and thank you!

the weekend ended with an intimate concert featuring the alabama shakes, a make-shift picnic dinner and world-class sunsets.  a. and i played around with a camera timer app i downloaded for the iphone and were rewarded with two of my favorite pictures from the entire evening.

yep.  & that's what i call a rockin' weekend.
