Christmas in July in Easton

That's Bernard, Eric, and Bobby expertly fitting "Barn Red" siding to our green-clad house this week.  As a visual gal I've never cared for vinyl siding, but this stuff looks fantastic close-up and from the street, what with being cast with the texture of real cedar shakes—and it NEVER needs painting—whew!

Our contractor, Fred Peacott of Peacott Carpentry, is doing a splendid job bringing designer Dave Packert's work to life.  And a proud plug for plumber Josh Weigel and electrician Bill Schneider, saw mill pro Peter of Shaker Mills for our locally grown flooring, Anderson Fireplace (and Insulation), excavator Tom Driscoll, mason Paul Jewett, plasterer Tom Mannion, the awesome roofer and crane operators who worked so fast I didn't catch their names—but I'll happily look them up them for you—realtor Marlene Wise, the many folks at Easton town hall, and especially our new neighbors, many of whom are spending this hot summer with open windows next door to all this colorful chaos.  Please accept my apologies—and let me know for goodness sake—if I've forgotten to give you a mention.

Thanks to everyone who's poured their blood, sweat, and tears into our home.  Keep up the good work, because we want to actually live here soon!

Carolyn and Chris' Wequassett Inn wedding went off with only the best kind of hitch when they said their vows in front of family and friends on June 26th. With a long history of trips to the Cape as kids, this was a natural venue for the couple, with views of Pleasant Bay and the salty scent of Cape Cod.

Laura Shannon and Kevin Bardon got the perfect Cape Cod day for their wedding and reception at the Lighthouse Inn in Dennis. The way they look at each other, and the way they glow together, lit up the whole Cape. Here are a couple of my favorites - a link to a slideshow of more:
