It turns out I like the 5th of July as much as the 4th.
I went to Zen with my sisters, Lylah and Caroline, in the morning. We found a black dress for me to wear to dinner that night and they made bracelets.
We checked out some of the shops, including Abacus, which is one of my all-time favorite stores. They have so many whimsical, unusual (and expensive) items. After, we grabbed lunch at the little store, H.B. Provisions and spent some time in the ocean.
Last night I went out for a very fancy dinner with Dad, Sarah, our cousins Tucker and Richard, and my aunt, Ellen.
The White Barn is a five-star dining experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Some of the dishes are in the photos above. My favorite was the duck with foie gras and a strawberry, all covered in some fabulous sauce. Three of us did a nine-course tasting, with wine pairings. We had so much fun and our waiter looked like Steve-o. Plus, we may be on TV as ABC filmed a portion of our dinner.
Today is for sitting on the beach, reading my colleague Tina’s book and generally enjoying a leisurely vacation.
Only 16 more days until that husband of mine returns from tour.
