Here is anotherfavorite song of mine – which I listen to often on my I-Tunes.

I can’t believe that 4th of July is this Saturday! We’re having over 40 people and I’ve started my menu. Here are a few tasty delights I will be serving and some great recipes from Food Network…

Just a few of the goodies I will be serving!
Recently, my daughters and I donated our hair for Locks for Love – all 4 of us!
Amanda – Before…
My daughter, Amanda – 17, donated 15 inches of her hair during Relay for Life – which was held at the New Fairfield High School.
Amanda – After!
A few days later, my daughters Melissa – 20 and Sara – soon to be 16 – along with myself – had our hair cut to be donated to Locks for Love.
A client of mine, Kathy, graciously told me that her salon participates in Locks for Love – so off we went to Salon Michele in Newtown, Connecticut – conveniently located just off Exit 10 on I-84.

Our before photo….
Samantha took good care of us -
That’s me – Getting approx 12 inches cut off my hair – Yikes!
Melissa was next - who hasn’t had her hair cut short since she was a baby!
Sara was last but not least, she donated the most!
First, Samantha cut the inches of hair we would be donating – then washing – then giving all three of us a very chic haircut and then styling. A full treatment!
Melissa was all smiles!

It has been raining for weeks here in New Fairfield, CT - and more is in the forecast! So, plans of barbecuing have changed often. Today, I came across a video from Good Morning America. Kate Gosselin from TLC’s – Jon & Kate Plus Eight, makes her Hearty Meatloaf – I know what I’m making for dinner tonight!

This Friday’s Foto Fun Friday Post are of pics from very talented Flickr folks that have caught images that remind me of the month of June - warm & longer days, barbecues, schools out, going to the beach, the lake and boat rides and vacations! So very much to do in the month of June! Where do I begin? Well, there is this awesome photographer that I happen to stumble upon today on Flickr.com – Savannah Grandfather. Here are just a few of his moments captured on film that remind me of June.
What a great guy – taking pictures of different style homes – just as I would do, especially if I ever have the opportunity to visit Martha’s Vineyard.

This past Saturday, I viewed a lovely 3 bdrm, 2 bath home on quiet street in Putnam Lake – Patterson, NY. This light & bright home has a large deck overlooking a level yard with an above ground pool. The open floor plan is great for entertaining and a walkout Lower Level has a family room and full bath – which makes it possible for a Mother/Daughter home or a great summer house!
