Weekend Whirlwind

Why is it that weekends always seem to slip by so quickly? After spending most of your Friday (admittedly) daydreaming about the promise of a relaxing weekend spent reading, meeting up with friends, playing sports or {insert your favorite weekend ritual here} before you know it's 9pm on Sunday night and you're giving yourself a pep talk in preparation for the upcoming week! Ugh!

During the spring and summer months, a couple of my favorite weekend rituals include spending entire days reading books and magazines at the beach and playing softball in Central Park with a great group of ladies and gents - some of whom I have been friends with since high school! This past weekend I was able to do both of these activities and though the respite between busy work weeks felt way too short, it was definitely well spent!

Though I wasn't able to take any pictures during softball (sports can really get in the way of one's photographic pursuits...) I was able to snap a few photos of my day at the beach. Greenwich Point (also know as Tods Point) in Greenwich, CT is my "go to" local beach. It's only an hour away from the city and even closer to my childhood home, and in my humble opinion, it's just as beautiful as any of the Hamptons beaches.

Stone walls make this feel very New England-y, no?

A private home & beach just a short distance from Tods Point. During the summer months, the owner sets up a Volleyball net!

I hope you all have a wonderful week (and an even better weekend!)
