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.
