Busy Bee.

Life has been a bit crazy the past few weeks between becoming a full member of the Junior League (yay!), helping the badger with 3 BBQ catering events, and Dad's birthday just to name a few ... Barefoot in the Park is sadly on the back burner. I promise I'll be back with exciting new posts, answers to your excellent questions, and much much more very soon!

But until then I leave you with this fantastic quote (borrowed from the "thoughts" section of the June issue of Real Simple Magazine.)

"Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must,
but be gracious if it kills you."
- Elsie de Wolfe
