I just want to give fair warning that for the next couple weeks posts will be A. random and not so regular and B. not very Texas-focused. We're off to my dear mother-in-law's summer retreat tomorrow and I get to wake up to this every morning. I can't really even begin to tell you how important Chilmark, Massachusetts in July is to our family.Ten years ago I was married on that lawn you're looking at. This is where my family was when my brother-in-law passed away two years ago. The same house that dear friends have come up to for ridiculously fun weekends filled with clambakes and assorted shenanigans. The same little seaside town that this Texas girl thought was so very foreign and strange, but has adored coming to for the past 12 Julys. Something always seems to happen when we're there. Sometimes good (meeting my in-laws for the first time, marriage, my kids), sometimes bad (Mr. H breaking his leg as a kid, Bo, bits of JFK Jrs plane washing up on that beach). Who knows what will come this year. Can't wait to find out.
