What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness? – John Steinbeck

I simply want to share some of my summer sweetness below. And I’m eager to move into the fall.


Fire Island. Just love these colors.



Raffie took this of me walking on the beach this week.

I spotted the New York Times while on vacation this week. Uber-famous and talented photographer Bill Cunningham took these photographs on Grand Prix Sunday. It’s always such an honor to work on the PR team led by Classic Communications and Marty Bauman. Thank you!

Swim Across America-By-Nancy-Moon

Swim Across America in Greenwich. One of my favorite events to attend. I have done PR for this fabulous event as well!



One of my favorite summer memories. Playing on the beach with the kids and capturing Stef in such a happy moment.



Stef in Fire Island. Looking right into the sun.



Preparing for a BBQ.



This little boy at the beach cracked me up. He has his water wings on and is excited to launch off.

Lori Malinski took this photo of me in a hot air balloon in 2013, but I just wanted to throw it in for fun.



My all-time favorite flower in summer. Hydrangea.



Blueberry picking for our summer blueberry pies. I’ve written about this activity in prior blogs.
