I’ve written before about how cool it is to have guests who come back often, whom you get to know year after year while sharing a tiny part of their lives, watching them grow and go on to new opportunities. It’s sort of like having kids.
Actually, there’s a lot of romance here at A Butler’s Manor this week. Besides our affianced couple, we’ve had a pair celebrating a mini-honeymoon and, tonight, a bride and groom. The bride is upstairs getting ready as I write. So love is definitely in the air here.
(Though not on the roads. Traffic in town on this gorgous, oh-no-it’s-almost-end-of-summer Saturday is diabolical. It’s a great day to be at the beach.)
It seems strange to have the Classic finishing up and still have another week until Labor Day. It’s a long summer this year: Memorial Day fell on the earliest date it can, May 25, and Labor Day will fall the latest day it can, on September 7. But hey, we think a longer summer is better than a blue moon!!
Quote of the day: Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the starts. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. –Regina Brett
