A new day, and a new name

Lemony ZestOkay, I was out shopping at Bed, Bath & Beyond last weekend and noticed that the phrase “Live, Love, Laugh” is all OVER the place: picture frames, wall art, napkins. I’m just not into associating something I use for self-expression – this blog – with a phrase that seems to have “jumped the shark,” or made a caricature of itself. Hence, the new name, which I like a lot better: Lemony Zest – for life, for food, for new and fun experiences, and one of my favorite flavors ;-)

Seawall Arts Festival 2008

Last Saturday, Dan and I went to the Seawall Arts Festival in downtown Portsmouth. It’s an annual event that draws artists from several states, held on Portsmouth’s main downtown drag, High Street. High Street ends at High Street Landing, a little man-made bay where boats can tie up and boaters can spend some time visiting antique shops, restaurants and other little jewels along High Street. Sunday was a beautiful, sunny day, not too hot, with a nice breeze.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

24 years ago today, Dan and I tied the knot in my mother’s back yard in Michigan. It was a beautiful ceremony, outside, on the water, with rain for good luck (I’ve heard that, anyway). Happy Anniversary, sweetheart! Here’s to many more :-)
