Summer Classics

{Nothing says summer like swimming in the Aegean Sea, I had a great time last year testing my skills in the rough waters off shore}

Summer is fast approaching, and in a matter of weeks our gardens will be transformed into a lush world of color. Schedules will be altered to sneak in lazy sun-splashed afternoons to picnic, swim or just lie around doing absolutely positively nothing. Remember when you couldn’t wait for school to end so, you could spend the entire day socializing with friends, travel the country with family or eat outdoors.

{Slice delicious watermelon for an after dinner treat or pop into your Italian deli for {pasticcini italiani} pastries to indulge in when it is too hot for baking}

Well…. throw caution to the wind, enjoy a few warm weather amusements, and begin cultivating a few to make your own traditions. Write list of travel or cook books you looking forward to reading this summer? Friends have given me a list of shows to watch on TV or Netflix. And, even in the warmer months I always enjoy testing recipes to fit the season, such as an al fresco meal {eating in the fresh air} for evenings with friends!

Stay stylish,

Summer’s Last Hurrah

IMG_4296It is good to be home after experiencing the severe heat and crowds when traveling throughout Europe, and while I still have a post to share from Athens it feels great to be back at Heath.

IMG_1612 IMG_4214As summer comes to a close, I shall miss meals prepared outside on the grill and served with slices of seasonal fruit, but cannot wait to turn on the ovens to bake or the stove to cook stews and soups.

It is always thrilling to witness the transition of each season and fall has to be my absolute favorite time of the year. Perhaps it is because I am not a fan of summer’s  heat or humidity. I love the fact that soon there will be chilly mornings and evenings along with leaves rustling and the smell of wood from fireplaces. And, there is nothing, absolutely nothing that beats a crisp clear night filled with stars! Fall is almost here!!!!!

Stay stylish,
