Decking the Halls of My Nantucket Dream Home

You know how Oprah always tells you to put things out into the universe so they are attracted back to you? Well universe, I want this house on Nantucket. That doesn't seem to be asking too much, now does it? As I've mentioned before, I love real estate.

Welcome to my (dream) home.

I have a tendency to bite off more than I want to chew, I'll admit it.

New England Inspired Holiday Table

I really, truly love the holidays. I've been blessed with years of good memories around this time, and I don't take it for granted. Instead I try to embrace every little moment. And the moments i love most are all about the gatherings (not the gifts). I love the crazy conversations that happen around a dinner table. It's free entertainment, and even better when the table is decked to the nines.

It's a little New England, a lot classic and really easy to whip up. The perfect combination, no?
