Happy humid and rainy weekend! You'd best enjoy the warmth while it lasts, because we spotted some red leaves on the baby trees while returning from a mini-getaway up north.

BOUTIQUES ON THE EAST END
Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique

The gowns are great, right? Obviously. The glam goes on with the decor on which dresses hang, found inside of Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique. The shopping experience is exactly what you'd be looking for if you were a bride. See these new arrivals from Hayley Paige for yourself by making an appointment or stepping inside for a peek.
If old houses aren't your thing, but living in Beacon is, then this newish construction house on 32 Victor Road with four bedrooms might be more your style. There's lots of space with this home - both inside and out. Plus, the price was just lowered a smidge. Did you check it out yet?
