Saying Good-Bye to July and Hello to Harry!


The wedding phase in my family is now complete and life will return to its vaguely normal pace, I assume! Thank you for your patience during our travels.  A wonderful time was had and the memories are beautiful!



Yes, all my family members are insanely gorgeous people. These are not stock photos.

But to keep the party feeling going, this Sunday we are having AN INSANE AFFAIR.


Story Hour begins at 3 p.m. They will read 2 different stories, children of all ages invited🙂

As to Harry Potter, there will be Butter Beer and Butter Beer Lattes, Pumpkin Juice Sodas, Pumpkin Whoopies, Chocolate Frogs and all manner of wands and sparkles as well as special edition coloring books and cuddly stuffed owls! The fun runs until 6!

And in case you haven’t heard, we now have REALDEAL beer! Mr. Smith is still finalizing his own brews but in the meantime we have a beautifully curated selection of beers in-house and some gorgeous pairing ideas as well! The famed photographer and journalist Mr. Paul Stephen did a brief write-up!Check out this fun Star News article!  Beer at Sugar Island!


In short-this Sunday, July 31, will be MAGICAL!! Sweet bits and savory bits, a gorgeous sale on all fantasy books and classics in the genius vein (C.S. Lewis) and fun surprises and decorations EVERYWHERE!! We can’t wait to see you and DORK OUT TOGETHER!!


Happy Charm from HP
