Nantucket Strolls with Vineyard Vines

There are so many reasons to love Nantucket. Some are obvious (hello gorgeous beaches!). Others are more of a feeling. And those? Those tend to be my favorite. It doesn't matter how many times I hop on a ferry to that little island 30 miles out to sea I always seem to get lost in all the magic that resonates on every cobblestone. So simply strolling the streets of Nantucket always ranks as one of my favorite pastimes when we visit.

Electric Moon Peony Farm in Rhode Island

Little Compton might be my favorite little corner of Rhode Island. I don't like to mention it much, because I'm afraid the secret will get out - but it's really just so special. Mainly because it's so untouched by tourism, and time really does seem to stand still. Drives through Little Compton include miles and miles of stone walls crashing into the sea (that's a little dramatic, but it's kind of true), farms, beautiful homes covered in weathered shingles, quaint little town centers and that old school New England charm that truly makes my heart sing.

Outdoor Patio Update + Summer Entertaining with Joss & Main

I love all seasons, I really do, but summer in New England is something to really appreciate. Maybe it's because we wait so long for it. Maybe it's because the weather is just perfection.

Cranberry, Elderberry Spritz with Runamok Maple Syrup

Spring cocktails are happiness in a glass. There is absolutely nothing like the first sip of a yummy cocktail on the patio after a long winter, and I have just the recipe for such a special occasion. Now, it's important to know, whenever I plan on serving a cocktail I make sure it only has a few ingredients - because who wants to sit in the kitchen mixing all night while your friends are enjoying themselves on your dream cocktail + patio evening? Well this little bubbly sipper is so easy you could do it in your sleep (or after a few perhaps), but they are fun and festive enough to make the evening feel special. Tip: the elderberry maple syrup from Runamok Maple is what really makes this spritzer shine.

Palm Beach Travel Guide

It never fails. The minute February rolls around I start to crave some serious vitamin D like nobody's business.  Yes, even me, the certified snow queen needs an escape to the warm weather in the depths of winter.  I just like to remember what it feels like to wear flip flops again, to not have ten layers on at all times and to twirl around in a dress again. It's really the little things.
