The Friday Five!

We've spent a fabulous week at the beach, which always leaves me questioning whether we should just pack up our busy city lives, find flexible jobs, and move to the sea. I always feel happy when I get back home though too. Grass is always greener, I guess. Here's what else we've been doing at the shore besides working on our tans (which I must confess, are phenomenal) ....

Reading -- I started Innocents and Others this week—it's taken me a bit to get into it, but I think it has some interesting things to say about loneliness and the search for connections. I think I'm mostly just anxiously awaiting the third Neapolitan Novel, so I'm not happy about reading anything else. The kids started reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with their Nona this week. The Chronicles of Narnia are hands-down some of my favorite childhood books so I love that they've started exploring them! 

Cooking -- we've been eating our fair share of boardwalk junk food this week, but I made one of our favorite steak recipes the other night with basil from my FIL's garden. This one is always a winner

Wanting -- current mood.

Making -- I've been making some amazing Jersey shore manis for Cam this week. Rhinestones are her favorite, obvi.

Playing -- we had a really epic color war as part of our Family Olympics this year.
