The Casting Dock

Life lately.

We have had a whirlwind of activity around here this past month. Each weekend has been packed with events and travel and family and friends and celebrations. And those pesky five days in between the weekends have been bustling with work as I head towards the final two weeks of the school year.

1. Jerry’s little brother graduated from college and we all benefited from a glorious outdoor ceremony in mid-May! It was an unexpected benefit of moving back to Massachusetts that we would find ourselves in the same little 5 mile chunk of Earth with Jordan. And while he was busy doing the college thing and we didn’t see him a ton, we loved having him so close and will miss him come August when the next crop of college kids rolls through without him. Congrats Jordan!

2. Our friends Diego and Kira got married on the most gorgeous day up at a picturesque inn on the coast of Rockport. Glorious New England at its best. Diego has been a longtime friend from college and one of the most loyal and reliable people I know. It has been an absolute joy to watch him as he has grown to deeply love and cherish Kira, just the sweetest and most easy going girl. I could not be happier for the two or them or more content in knowing that they each have found their match. They are off to San Francisco for the first of what I am sure will be many adventures!

{and an added bonus for me–I got an afternoon with BOTH of my college roommates!}

3. Memorial Day weekend spent in Georgia. Jerry’s grandparents were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary (!) and his parents were throwing them a party so we went down to celebrate. It was a delightful evening all around! While in Georgia, we grabbed breakfast with some of Jerry’s friends from high school (whom I thoroughly enjoy) and the newest addition–little 8 week old Harper who was just too cute! We also snuck down to catch a Braves game, which is possibly Jerry’s very favorite activity on Earth.

4. The following weekend we went down to NYC to visit my college roommate Julie whom we had the pleasure of seeing a couple weeks before at Diego and Kira’s wedding. Every time we pop down to hang out with Jules we get a different experience of New York City. This go around we spent some time on the West Side–checking out the Cloisters, a division of the MET housed wayyyy up on the West Side, strolling through Columbia’s campus, dining on the Hudson, hopping over to Hoboken, NJ to check out Carlo’s Bakery (sight of the TV show Cake Boss), and meandering soberly through the new 9/11 Memorial. NYC never disappoints with Julie as our host!

We are so thankful for family and friends and the means to see them and celebrate with them. We are also thankful for a low-key weekend in our little sliver of the world these past two days. It has been exactly what we needed before the action-packed summer really kicks into high gear!
