a toast to...

my parents, married 40 years this week!

wedding day, march 21, 1970 -- mom was 19, dad, 23

we are off on a grand celebratory weekend to the
lovely chatham bars inn on cape cod,
with 10 family members flying in to join us for the event!

i'm hoping for yet another unseasonably warm new england spring weekend
as we stay, play, walk the beaches and shop...

we're staying in the cottages, aren't they adorable?
i've planned a small party for saturday night to toast the happy couple
with coffees, teas, punch, champagne and red velvet cupcakes...
and lots of pictures from the last 40 years!

have a wonderful weekend .... sending you a bit of new england's sea and shore!


  1. You'll have a fabulous weekend!

  2. How pretty! Can you believe I have never been to the Cape. One of these days!
