When the Kids Are Away...

Okay, so you all know how much I've been dreading Cassie's departure. It was hard, so enough said about that. But then on Friday, I dropped the "little girls" (not so little anymore, I realize) off at summer camp.

They were delighted to be there and EAGER for me to leave. As in, hauling their stuff at a break-neck pace to their cabins and giving me kisses and also looks that said It's time for you to go now.

They are doing me a serious favor by posing for this picture.

I did manage to snap a few pics along the way. It's a sweet little camp.

Afterwards, I headed to the nearby outlets for a little retail therapy. Two cardigans from J Crew, a pair of shorts, and two dresses from Banana Republic later ($14.99 a piece!), I made a beeline to Oxford, my favorite town on the planet.

I purchased a delicious chicken salad sandwich from the local market.

Then I headed here for an afternoon of reading and writing poolside. It really is so very heart- wrenching when your children leave you for bigger and better things.

Later, I met the most charming man. It was love at first sight. We even spent the weekend together.

I think we may live happily ever after.


  1. You certainly have handled the empty nest well! I suppose day two will be more of the same. sigh

  2. It's always a new adventure when you have kids and it looks like you are on the right track. You and hubby are so cute together! :)


  3. Oh, I remember when I took our kids to their first camp. I was crying so much when I got home and than I started to think it was the first time that Hubby and I had alone in along time. So we too enjoyed the week.
