August Wrap Up


Wow- this month has totally flown by!  I can’t believe it is Labor Day weekend already.  Our summer was very busy- had some nice trips thrown in there, but I think we are ready to go back to our routine-plus it is disgustingly humid in New Jersey lately and I HATE humidity.

The family went on a great trip up to Lake Placid, NY.  It is so beautiful up there, especially in the summer.  We hiked (ugh), went to the top of Whiteface Mt., saw the High Falls Gorge, and relaxed by the lake.  The kids learned to paddle board, and did some canoeing, while I lounged and read!!

I also went to Boston with just my husband- Freedom Trail and all!!


Here is what I did here on the blog and reading-wise:

Books Read

Beautiful Day

My Notorious Life

The Girl You Left Behind


Catching Fire

The Hunger Games

The Perfume Collector

The Other Typist

The Bones of PAris

9-not so bad!

And I was nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award- yeah!

How is your summer wrapping up?

  1. I’m already lamenting the end of nice weather. Haha! I can’t stand winter (cold and snow–ew).

    Sounds like you had a lovely time on your trips. Yay!

  2. Sounds like a nice month! The trips sound like a lot of fun! Lake Placid looks gorgeous! It is really humid here also and it just makes me want to stay inside! I’m so ready for fall!

  3. Those pictures are sooo pretty. One of the things that makes me sad about living in Colorado is that there is nothing green here. Everything is so brown and dry.

    Looks like a fun summer. I’m jealous you went to Boston!

  5. My cousin lives in Lake Placid and works at Whiteface! Small world 😛 It’s so beautiful there. And Boston is one of my favorite cities! Hope you had a great time there.

    Good gravy, you read a lot this month! I so want to read a few of those books.
