As we begin to say good-bye to August and welcome fall, I wanted to re-cap some of my favorite things about the summer of 2014. Although this was one of the more milder summers I have seen on Long Island, there were still plenty of days to hit the beach and pool.
For me, these past few months were about new beginnings. I felt like I missed out last summer – having undergone thyroid surgery in June and recovering thereafter, I really wanted to make the most of this summer and take advantage of all the things I couldn’t do a mere 12 months ago.
Some of the highlights included:
Celebrating my one-year thyroid-versary
Visiting Port Jefferson (quite a few times)
Attending a Long Island Ducks game with Claudia
Watching Fourth of July fireworks at said game and getting absolutely soaked
Going stand-up paddle boarding
Having a ShackBurger from the Shake Shack mid-week
Tasting burgers at the Battle of the Burger (and having my favorite restaurant win!)
Developing a slight obsession with Talenti Gelato
Adding to my wardrobe courtesy of The Loft, H&M, Nordstrom Rack, and Vine & Roses
Taking a day trip to Sag Harbor
Hope you all had some fun summer adventures of your own!
