Hello and happy Saturday to you. Hope you are well and enjoying a wonderful weekend. Just got back from idyllic Nantucket and must admit it was hard to leave, a very special place. It had been too long since I had been and I vowed to go more regularly….it is so beautiful. We are heading back to East Hampton later today and it’s going to be HOT!!!!! So……it got me thinking, this is a perfect time to hold our Summer Love photo contest! I always love seeing how you interpret various seasons and summer is such an opportune time for photo taking opportunities, whether its time at the beach, an alfresco set table, a family vacation, a yummy lobster roll, maybe pictures from a local farm stand or kids and pets frolicking in the surf. This contest is all about the joys and pleasures of summer. So here are the rules, then it’s time to get busy and send us your best shot!
