When I made my comment in response to this morning's blog about not owning a summer-worthy gingham top, apparently I hadn't had any coffee.

Of course I have a gingham top! Sheesh! I love it! I now own 3 of these Thomas Mason J. Crew shirts and I adore them.

Thanks for the inspiration, Angie. I am wearing this outfit to a celebratory family supper. It has been a week of communications snafus, lost cash, many, many little annoyances (including ongoing arguments with Zara about my never-delivered order) and too, too many details. (Ever have those weeks?)

But -- on a happy note: My DD is one of two finalists in her age group in the Kingston WritersFest contest!! Judging was blind, by strangers who do not know me or her or our connection. So there was absolutely no nepotism involved. It is all on her own merit. She did not ask me for any help until she was ready to submit -- at which point I did a final check for her spelling and we brainstormed a bit about a title. I am so excited for her!!
