Happy Friday

My wanderlust has got the best of me. I’ve always wanted to “Summer in the Cape”. It seems like a perfect place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get away this summer for any real vacation and daydreaming about life on the Cape for a week in the summer has quickly led way to my new addiction of browsing real estate listings for a tiny Cape Cod cottage to call our own. My needs are simple: something tiny so it is very manageable and easy to decorate. A view of the water would be a major perk. Something very modest would suit me just fine. How do I make this happen? Truly, a first world problem….

I was looking through some of my pictures from our last trip to New England, which included this post about staying several nights at The Chatham Inn at 359 Main in the charming Cape Cod town of Chatham, Massachusetts. Chatham is situated at the “elbow” of Cape Cod where land starts to curve northerly. It is really one of the most charming towns in the Cape and I thought I would share some of the details I found while in Chatham. And because today is National Pink Day (there is a holiday for everything!), today seems like a perfect day to share these particular pictures. Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, Happy National Pink Day!

Life gets just a little bit slower as you cross the bridge and enter Cape Cod.

Happy Friday: The Door to the Weekend

door to the weekend Reviving Charm quote

Happy Friday! I like to think of Friday as the door to the weekend; a door that leads to the opportunity for a little fun. What do you have planned? June gloom may have set in but it’s not going to dampen my mood for the weekend. I hope to be productive with some home projects that I keep putting off (i.e. the seaside guest bedroom…I know, I know, it’s taking forever), do research for a couple of upcoming vacations, sort through pictures I took yesterday to share with you for an upcoming post, and get outside for a bit. However, I do have to fit in a little bit of time for work to prepare for an important presentation this upcoming Monday night. Wish me luck. One thing I know for sure is at 5 pm today, when the proverbial whistle blows, I will be smiling from ear to ear….let the weekend begin!

Happy Friday

happy friday simply charming Reviving Charm 1Happy Friday! What do you have planned for this Memorial Day weekend? It’s the unofficial start of summer and normally I would try to take advantage of the extended weekend for a long weekend getaway. However, given the fact that I spent most of this week in Las Vegas for work, I am looking forward to being home with the occasional trip out for a nice lunch or quick shopping trip. Spending a bit of time outdoors would also be nice given that the high is supposed to be around 70 degrees here at our seaside ranch home. No, the photos above our not our home, but just some beautiful inspiration to get us all in the mood for summer. I also plan to work on some upcoming posts to get back on track and keep you company. After all, I’ve missed you! summer quote via Reviving Charm 1
