I'm so in love with it.
Yesterday we headed up to Gloucester to spend the afternoon at Good Harbor Beach. It was Zan's sister Nell's Birthday so we had dinner and cake while the sun was setting. Then we headed to historic Rockport (above) to walk Bearskin Neck while licking ice cream cones. I try to never forget it, but it's days like yesterday that make me remember why summer is my favorite.
Today we've decided to do it again! We're heading up soon, to the beaches of the North Shore, to have another glorious summer day.
Hope you're having a good weekend!

"Jamaica Pond is a kettle pond, part of the Emerald Necklace of parks in Boston designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The pond and park are in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, close to the border of Brookline. It is the source of the Muddy River, which drains into the lower Charles River.
The pond has an area of about 68 acres, and is 53 feet deep at its center, making it the largest body of fresh water in Boston, and the largest natural freshwater body in the lower Charles River watershed. It is ringed by a walking path, and is an extremely popular destination for Bostonians for walking, fishing, and sailing."

Although I do still have a [VERY] special place in my heart for peanut butter, I am forced to eat my beloved PB&J's with sunflower butter this summer, as my reading specialist internship is at a "peanut-free" school. Which I guess would now make it a SB&J. Which really, just sounds weird.
Truthfully, sunflower butter is actually pretty tasty and when slabbed on some bread with some extra delicious raspberry preserves I can barely tell the difference.
But still we should ask ourselves-- Which butter is better??
After doing a bit of research (my own taste tests and those of others) I have come to the conclusion that although peanut butter ultimately tastes better, it is not in fact better for you. For nutritional value sunflower butter takes the gold. It has lesser amounts of monosaturated fat and it is richer in vitamins, protein, and fiber. And although it might not taste as sweet or salty, it has less additives, and is more hearty in flavor.
