Happy Father's Day! I just want to take a moment to thank my father for what an incredible man he is. He has not only been there for me and my children, he has taught me so much. He is unbelievably intelligent and has this ability to think things through in such a rational way, it amazes me.

Most importantly though my Father has this spirit that is truly kind. He is not only generous to his family but to everyone he comes in contact with. He really respects people and even into his 70's you can see that when he interacts with people.

Also, the way my Father loves my Mother is this magnificent thing to watch. They have been through so much in their lifetime of love together and they are still so connected and madly in love with each other. The only problem, it sets this standard for me and my sisters that few partners can live up too.

I am incredibly grateful for all he has done for me, for everything he has taught me and everything he continues to teach me.

Dad you are truly an incredible Father, Grandfather, business man, teacher and husband.

Across the Universe

I can't get this song out of my head. I heard it over the weekend and I loved it.
I like the Beatles OK but there is something magical when artist can take old rock songs and make them so new and fresh.

Alicia and Adele

How can you go wrong with a Bob Dylan song sung by these two incredible woman?

Food From the Weekend

I had two lovely romantic dinners this weekend. The first one was at Tanalus, in East Aurora. They have great pizza's but this time I opted for the stuffed ravioli with prosciutto, yum.

There food is always excellent. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the fabulous chocolate fudge cake.

Saturday evening I made a quite dinner for two at home, it was nice and relaxing. We cooked steak and shrimp on the grill. We also had a lovely tomato and mozzarella salad and a fresh loaf of garlic roasted bread from Wegman's, it is the best.

I love this necklace on Etsy!
Isn't it the cutest thing? Cheap too. I could get my initial, I could get three of them with my boys initials or I could be old school and get the initial of my sweetie pie. Oh the possibilities.

I want to spend my summer relaxing here! Maybe someday.

I love this print, its called Grumpy Love and it reminds me of someone dear to me.

Wow, to cook in this kitchen would be so dreamy. I think I really want, maybe need, white cabinets with dark hardwood floors.

I wish I could get my boys to dress like this. J Crew, Crewcuts is just the cutest and preppiest clothes, I love them. Now that my boys are 9,9 and 12 I have very little control over what they wear and I hate it. I am tired of baggy basketball shorts.
