It’s basically a holiday where we are this week: the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament! The first over-500 pound fish was caught today, raking in the $433,500. Hemingway would be proud. My son is in heaven watching these giant fish come in and get weighed. I’m more considering what I would do with the prize money!

This lovely porch makes a huge statement upon entering this home. It’s the perfect place for whiling away a summer and making it last a little longer. We hope your June is going wonderfully!

We are thinking of all of our friends in Orlando and around the country that have been touched by the atrocities there. Our hearts ache for those who lost loved ones.
