lemonade...  good news from newport

Happy September!

Often this can be one of the best months on our island. The crowds thin out, the ocean is warm and the light is golden even as the days grow shorter.

Last month we observed Simplify Your Life week, how are we doing with that? Can we sustain simplicity as our fall schedules ramp up? I hope so! 

September is National Courtesy Month!  Now, I know that you, my lemonade subscribers are already extremely polite, of course! That said, perhaps we can all display exemplary courtesy this month? By doing so, maybe our collective kindness vibe will be contagious to those around us that are... let's just say... in dire need of a short-course on civility.

"You may say I'm a dreamer..."
, but here's hoping anyway!

Thank you for your consideration ;-)

 and if you please...
