Have a wonderful day unless you’ve made other plans. Or don’t have these shoes.
I swear I used to have a pair just like them!
“I may have to confiscate that brim,” said the stud airport security guard to Van as we traversed the Houston airport. We were on our way to our vacation spot on the west coast and Van was wearing a very sharp Panama hat that always attracts the attention of hat lovers. Van is never afraid to wear a hat, a quality I think she gets from her mother, who’s a true hat aficionado.
While I have appreciated Van’s hats (not all of them, I admit), I’ve never been a hat person myself. That is, until I fell head over heals in love with a large black and white sun hat that I bought on vacation, simply because I could not resist its movie star glamour. I wore the hat on the beach, where it looked great with my black and white bikini, and out to a very fancy dinner Van planned to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Truthfully, I’ve never felt so transformed by an accessory before. It was, in a word, sublime!

Summer is coming to an end, my lovelies, so I’m raising my glass in appreciation. (For inquiring minds, I’m drinking Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel.) Van is mowing the lawn now but afterwards she’ll get the grill started for dinner. (Ours is charcoal, not gas, because I love the smokey taste and smell of the real thing.) I made a few simple dishes earlier in the day so all that’s left for me to do is find a cute outfit and put the finishing touches on dinner. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday!

Van and I are packing our bags and setting sail for the Caribbean. Yes, my lovelies, it’s cruise time! I picked up an adorable new bikini and a nautical striped sweater for chilly evenings on the ship, so I’m ready to go. Reading for lounging by the pool in my beachy splendor? Mae West’s autobiography, Goodness Had Nothing to Do with It, of course. See you in 2 weeks! xoxo SF
