Have A Relaxing Weekend!

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time." --John Lubbock

Slim Aarons

Happy Friday, everyone! How will you be spending this last official weekend of summer? We've been enjoying dreamily perfect weather, so plan to take some time to slow down and drink in the last few drops of the season.

AND - I'm so excited. The Barefoot Contessa is in town this Sunday and some friends and I will be sipping mimosas at reception with the BFC prior to her speaking engagement. (BTW, did you know she has a blog now?) What does one wear to meet Ina?

Have a lovely one! XO


  1. We're busy trying to get ready for winter around here so no rest for us. How exciting to get to meet Ina. I've never seen her dress fancy so I would keep it relaxed. Have a great time and take lots of pictures!


  2. I know that you will have so much fun, Jeanne! I love Ina, and watch her show when I can.
    Happy Friday.

  3. Yes I subscribed to her blog as I am a big fan. Low key weekend here, dinner with family and friends, a walkathon, and hopefully getting out in this glorious weather and just enjoying it! Hope yours is fun! Say hi to Ina:)

  4. So jealous that you get to go to the BFC event! I wanted to go but we have family in town - bummer!! Have a wonderful time. I think you wear her uniform - a custom made starched pastel shirt and black pants, right? ;) Have fun - I'd love to hear about it after!

    Wow! I'm jealous, but I'm seeing a bright scarf-- it's good enough for her!! Thanks for letting us know about her block.

    I meant BLOG. (-:

  7. We'll be soaking in the last of the summer sun on the banks of a river at a regatta and hope the fall season brings many more sunny weekends! So jealous you get to see Ina.
    C + C

  8. i need that lovely hammock with the tassels!! you know where i'll be spending the last days of summer... and you are welcome to join me. :) as for BFC, matching t-shirts that say 'i heart ina'...? just kidding.

  9. well of course you'll wear a crisp white shirt like ina!

    how fabulous that will be, lucky girl.

    this weekend is about the band's first gig. i am excited and ready to bruise my body royally with tambourine (and maybe some moshing).


  10. Dana, If you put that hammock in your back yard, you might never get rid of me. Is it too late to order the "I heart Ina" T-shirts?

    Michele, have fun rockin' out, but be careful of that tambourine, not to mention the mosh pit! XO

  11. Soccer season has begun and we have a flurry of social activities to attend so as much as I would love nothing more than a weekend to linger in a hammock like that, I regret that I must put on a smile and show my best sportsmanship. I also have tons of work to tend to including yours. I am feeling full of gratitude for a rich life.

  12. how wonderful, have a great time! Hope you'll share pictures

  13. Oh have fun!! It's a beautiful weekend here as well but much to catch up on...

  14. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Jeanne. I know you will choose the right outfit to wear to meet Ina
    I am on holiday in Ireland and presently watching the sunset over the ocean. Sheer bliss
