Sweet Sweet Summertime

Summer is officially here and looking at my calendar, it looks like every week is pretty jam packed which I love (including the upcoming Luau on the Lake – did you enter for tickets? Today is the last day!)

Look who we ran into and got to hang out with (until Mark's bedtime)

This weekend was the start of the fun – first with the O.A.R. concert with Monina and Amara. It was more or less a last minute plan but was the perfect summer Friday night, despite some raindrops. I’ve been an O.A.R. fan since I was 19 and I’ve seen them more times than I can count. Somehow they have just gotten better and better – both in their lyrics and their sound. We danced to Phillip Phillips, laughed with friends and then sang and danced to O.A.R. for two straight hours.

Saturday was the annual Summer Solstice party at the Cleveland Art Museum. As I’ve noted before, it’s one of my favorite ways to kick off summer and this year we weren’t sweating from the heat which was awesome. As usual, I wore Yellowcake Shop (my fave go-to). Stacey and I went around 8pm, enjoyed some awesome people watching (lots of red pants on men this year and checkered shirts), music, catching up with friends and drinks. I love a good party and a party at the Art Museum is even better.

My city is cooler than yours.

Sunday, usual brunch crowd went to SOHO for lots of catching up, advice giving and girl talk. Of course both Jen and I walked away with sunburns. Dang it.


How did you celebrate the summer solstice and kick off of summer in The CLE?
