closed for vacation from the 6th to the 26th

in italy (and much of the rest of europe, for that matter) everyone takes a serious vacation in august. most stores are closed, restaurants are shuttered, and entire cities settle into a sleepy pace.
i am wrapping this week up early because i am heading to florida tomorrow for a little ferie of my own: a long weekend celebration in honor of my dad's birthday!
let us all raise a beachy bloody mary to his health!

i shall leave you with a few highlights from this week:
+  celebrated summer with an impromptu clambake, complete with cat/lobster encounter.
+  made some pesto from our garden basil!
+  tried a fabulous new recipe for tandoori salmon, courtesy of a new favorite food blog, french revolution.

and, notable but not pictured:
+  i went to bikram 4 times (and plan on going again tomorrow before our flight!)
+  west elm is having an upholstery sale! jury is still out on whether it is a good time to make that new sofa purchase, but i'm thinking this one in dove gray!

see you next week, hopefully with a tan :)
