It’s Over Already?

Wow, where did the summer go?  We were very busy getting ready for Provence and then spending July on our “facelift”  (that is  creating a new blog and refreshing the website).  We wanted to see some of our favorite friends but before you knew it August was here.  We decided the best way to enjoy seeing Betty and Nick and Joan and Marty was to throw an intimate dinner party.  I did the Summer opener so Mimi signed up for the Summer closer.  We came up with our menu and it was off to Wegman’s for a shopping spree.
