Weeks away

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity loads of great stuff.  Lest you think my silence has been because I’ve been mourning the loss of Mary all this time, let me give you a peek into what I’ve been up to.

First, I believe I hopped off the blog bandwagon to attend a week of wedding extravaganza activities. Mike and Kim got married just outside of Sunday River, Maine, at the peak of the foliage season.  They were kind enough to bring a bunch of their friends along for the ride and invited us to stay in the above enormous, palatial house in the mountains where the wedding took place and good times were had during the ensuing week.

The wedding was phenomenally beautiful and fun.  The crowd of friends and family made the day really special.  A bazillion heartfelt and funny toasts were given, and all together they made you feel like you’d known everyone there forever, including the people you’d never met!


A view we stumbled upon while out on our bikes.  See the wee bit of snow at the top there?  Yeah, that was covered by the time we left…  Photo cred goes to Steve R. for this shot, who was smarter than I and brought his camera!

The celebration continued throughout the week in aforementioned (and aforepictured) house.  This place was not only straight out of a Williams-Sonoma catalog with its 9 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, movie theater 2 custom kitchens, steam room and hot tub, but it was filled with foodies that could make those catalog dreams come true (and put those state-of-the-art appliances to great use).  Each dinner and breakfast was assigned to a person/group and amazing food filled our bellied nonstop throughout the week.  Needless to say, it was pure gluttony every day involving things like apple risotto, pumpkin waffles, fresh pancakes, an Italian feast, 4 o’clock cocktails (every day!), movie theater popcorn (from the movie theater upstairs, of course!), lots of pie, leftover wedding cake, wine, cheese, more wine, and, a couple of great (cold and steep) bike rides and, and, and… it was awesome.

And then I came back home to my tiny, messy house and I cried for a week.

After that, I started sewing again, and here I am back on the blog scene.  So that’s where I’ve been.

Soon I’ll have a few things to show you that I’ve been working on!

    I’m so glad you had a good time, and am so sorry re-entry’s been so hard. I know you’re in full-on madness mode at work. We need to plan a restorative break!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed it. We had a blast, and I’m glad you were able to stay with us to the bitter end! I got home and wondered where all my friends were and why all the windows in my house were so small! Then we went to Italy and I stopped caring about my windows, but still wanted to be surrounded by friends.
