have you missed me?

Over the past 10 days I've been on the computer only once to check email. I've been up in the Northeast totally enjoying the cooler temperatures. First stop was Long Island for a reunion of my husband's high school friends, and then on to Newport for the week for my niece's wedding.

We stayed with my sister and her family while on LI and visited the yacht club where I'd been a member since I was 12 years old, until age 35.
I can't believe I've been in Atlanta 20 years!

~Jen and Hanna~ thanks for your hospitality!
On Sunday afternoon we drove out east to catch the ferry from Orient Point to New London, with a stop along the way to visit a winery and have lunch in Greenport.
Our historic house in Newport
The Baldwin Cottage
my beautiful room
It was Father's Day and the dads opted to stay home, watch the US Open Golf and barbecue while the rest of us who came the first day headed to town for some fun!
We started off walking to town and then took the trolley, which actually let us off for a longer walk then just walking in the first place. Our house was only a few blocks to town and I don't think anyone rode it again all week.
Our welcome to Newport dinner with a "party of a cocktail" for the entire table. A great kickoff to a fun filled week!

~more Newport fun in the next post~


  1. Oh, How Fun! The pictures are wonderful & definitely reflect a good time. Since I'll probably never see any of these places, I appreciate the tour, my friend!

    What is life without good friends & good times? You are too cute & funny in the last picture. We are so destined to be friends!

  2. Yes, you were missed! I'm glad you had such a great time!! =)

  3. Wow, great pics. That house is gorgeous! I am loving the color of those bedroom walls--is that a Tiffany blue?

    Glad y'all had a fun trip!
