This has inspired me to start sprucing up our back porch. One of the first things I did was string up some of my vintage paper lanterns with a cord of cafe lights. It instantly made it a hundred times more lovely out there. And they look good in the daytime and the nighttime! Win win.

Summer is in full swing. We've had a lot of visitors over the past few weeks...mostly refugees from the super-heated streets of NYC. We've been doing our best to treat them...and ourselves...to a proper upstate summer. Think: tubing the Espous, swimming in "The Deep", hiking through Plattekill Clove, kayaking on the Hudson. And, of course, no upstate summer would be complete without a backyard barbecue...so we finally threw down the $69.70 for a Weber grill and have been eating lots of delicious dinners on the patio ever since.
