July 4th


it’s been entertaining seeing everyone’s july 4th instagrams. seems like a lot of people are in cape cod, nantucket, provincetown or somewhere in the hamptons.

when i think of these places i think of summer. images of shingled houses with white trim come to mind. there are sweeping porches, a lot of windows and a few dormers. white picket fences surrounding big green lawns, tall ficus hedges standing supreme and enormous hydrangeas add a touch of color….

…and in most cases, or at least so in my mind, an american flag blows beautifully and freely on a very tall pole.

i hope everyone had a happy july 4th! today i’m thinking about america the beautiful and summer shingles. enjoy!
