Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

After 2 weeks of rain, I am absolutely, positively ready to finally just kick off my shoes, lie in the now VERY tall grass, under a cloudless sunny sky and relax!!!

Perhaps a little gardening, perhaps a BBQ..
All I can tell you, with a little dose of Vitamin D...anything is now possible....

Stay Safe, Get Barefoot and have a Great Long Weekend!!!!

Sailing & Such......

All along the New England coastline, yacht clubs and beach clubs are excitedly opening their doors this weekend to summer...
After one of the most brutal winters in history, I can assure you that the clubs and beaches will be jam packed  with people ready to celebrate!
I expect to see some fabulous kitchy skirts at these affairs..
Which one would you choose?

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

What a week!! 
Here at the Wesson household we have started building an ark (you know it will have to be covered in glitter!).
So far we have 3 People, 1 Dog, 1 Cat, 1 Bunny, 1 Coyote, 1 Woodchuck, 4 Chipmunks, 4 Robins with 7 children and 2 Cardinals with 3 children(The Monster has been keeping a list just in case).
Hopefully, the weather will shift so that I can start planting a few hydrangea bushes. Also I am not so sure that we have collected enough wood for the ark..

Next week I get to work on a little project(that has been in my head for over a year) with the most talented ladies EVER.
Now I am certainly not a patient girl but I will have to wait till Mid-June to show you the results. In the meantime, this weekend I will be covered in glitter, glue and whatever else could be stuck to my fingers...
Hopefully, I will get just enough time to dig in the dirt..


Stay Safe, Stay Dry and Have a Great Weekend!!

Feeling Blue....

5 days of rain and I am feeling kinda blue.....
But I'm not gonna let those turkeys get me down...
Instead, I'm going to dream of blue skies, blue water, sand between my toes and sun in my face..

Polkaspots....

When I started this blog I made 3 promises to myself...
 1. Never write about politics.
2. Never write about religion 
(Trust me, Christmas & Easter in our house is purely commercial)
3. Never write about anything sad and depressing.
Well, today I will break promise number 3. 
Not just because I am sad and can't get any work done today but because I wanted to pay homage to a dear dear friend.

I like to think of him as misunderstood. He was very selective in choosing his friends (smart man). But if you were chosen...you were very very lucky..As you see, inside he was just a big ball of mush. I feel extremely grateful and honored that I was chosen. The times he came to stay with us, he was my shadow. When we traveled to Vermont, he and I would take long walks through the woods, he was free, sans leash and ran at top speed through the winding paths like a puppy...always checking back in to see if I was ok.

I realize that their might be some of you out there who don't have a dog and can't understand what it feels like to lose one. I can tell you this, it feels like losing your best friend or your child.
Just by watching Marley & Me, you will instantly understand the relationship between people and dogs. 
(just be sure to bring a ton of tissues).

Sometimes, I believe that they are "more evolved" than humans as a species. They don't believe in drama. They always forgive AND forget. They love you no matter what, even your flaws. They are beyond excited when they see you and sad when you leave. All they want?? A tummy rub, a treat and love.
How many people do you know that are like that?

Starting out life in an alley in Seattle, this pup hit the jackpot. He found two of the most amazing parents and they became a family. They traveled across our massive country and soon he had 3 little sisters to care for and protect.
It was a win/win for both.

So for my friend, I wish for you, green fields to run in, water to romp through and an all-you-can-eat biscuit buffet.


For his family, my heart goes out to you. Thank you for letting me say goodbye today. You are the bravest parents EVER!! He was the luckiest dog in the world and you gave him all that he asked for..
To be loved!


Happy Trails Polkaspots!

Happy Mother's Day!

Moms...
We all have them. Some are near, some are far and some we cannot see, but they are always with us and in our hearts. Last year, I  spoke just about my Mom...This year, I wanted to acknowledge the "other mothers". Ok, I know it sounds like the title of a very very scary movie, but it is quite the opposite. You see, I just so happen to have these lovely ladies in my life who are nurturing, protecting and loving my son just as he was their very own.
 In fact, The Monster has Five of them.
The Protector
 The Foodie
The Crush
The Comedienne & Girl Interpreter
 The Gentle Soul

Not only is he the luckiest boy alive to have Six mothers but I am as well. This group of beautiful, strong and creative women teach me how to be a better mom and for that, I am eternally grateful.
It is true what they say, it takes a village to raise a child.

They have also given me Four girls and Two boys to add to my brood. So really, I am a mother to Seven beautiful monkeys.

So here's to you.."other mothers"!!
Today is your day!!!

I certainly couldn't forget my two wonderful mothers!

Happy Happy Day to ALL the mothers out there
and a huge kiss to the Tall One, because without him I would never have become a mother.
