welcome back summer and saying a sad goodbye...

hey everyone :) and a big hello to you too summer...

this is going to be an interesting summer for me... for many reasons... #1... this is our last summer here in cape may... as of august 28th we will be out of here and on our way up to portsmouth, new hampshire... i cannot believe how fast the 4 years here have gone by... i am truly going to miss this place...

#2... it is going to be an extremely busy summer... we have a lot planned and a lot to look forward to like, jack's 6th birthday, or annual family vacation to l.b.i and ESPECIALLY the arrival of my nephew william... i cannot wait to meet the little sprout...

#3... my hubby isn't here to spend the summer with us... BOOOOO!!! he transferred up early to new hampshire because as of right now he is aboard the USCG cutter Tahoma for a 2 month deployment... i am extremely proud of him, and i know why he does what he does... but i can't help but dislike everyday he is gone from me and the boys... i guess i'm selfish, i just want my hubs here with me... is that so wrong??

so to make myself feel better, and also to welcome summer back into my life, i treated myself to a fresh fruit taste sensation... a lovely fresh fruit and vanilla pastry cream tart... it sure did put a smile on my face...



this was a wonerful taste of summer... crisp fresh fruit, and creamy vanilla pastry cream... i even spoiled myself some more by enjoying a glass of champagne while i savored each sweet bite...


i can't put into words how much i am going to miss my hubby... it saddens me to know that the boys and i will be spending our last 2 months here in cape may without him... but once he's back in the end of august we are off to a new home and a new adventure...



wishing my hubby safe travels along calm seas... come home to me and the boys soon... we love you...


welcome back summer... and happy baking everyone :)

  1. oh you poor thing. I am former navy and have done 2 6 month deployments and tons of others. I did not have a family of my own back then, now that I do I can imagine how tough it will be.

    Good luck!

  2. yea, i'm really not looking forward to it... we are attached to this boat for the next three years, and it's going to be a big change for me and the boys... since my hubs and i have been together we have always been land based, so it's going to be interesting :)
