July 4th weekend has a feeling - the air is crisp and warm, american flags are prominent, the skies are blue and the days are beautifully long and filled with the smell of BBQ, sun tan lotion and insect repellent. MMMM, all my favorite smells.
We're off on our annual Marthas Vineyard family trip for the holiday, and I cannot WAIT for this vacation - my longest one since starting my job at this time last year. What are you doing for the holiday?
p.s. swallow cafe has THE BEST bagels / ice coffs!

I knew for a while that I wanted to get a tattoo for Claudie on my arm. Aside from my undying love for my doggie, I also love the design of doxies, and pretty much own everything dachshund that I can get my hands on. It was just a matter of letting the idea really sink in before going ahead with the tattoo. Matt found this great place called east river tattoo in greenpoint, and we walked-in yesterday hoping they'd have time!
Not only did they have time, but they HAD A DOXIE IN THE SHOP! It was meant to be. Rob who tattooed me owns his own, and was equally as enthusiastic about the tattoo as I was! It hurt a little bit, but I am so so happy with how it came out. I think Claude secretly knows, and she has been loving me extra!
For new readers... we adopted claude in 2012, and she made her first blog appearance here. she has become a part of our family and nothing is as much fun if she isn't by our side!
