Happy Fourth of July!

The Fourth of July has always been one of my very favorite holidays. It's smack dab in the middle of summer (actually more of a kick off to summer here in New England), and it just has an overall happy vibe. Andrew and I actually met this very week 14 years ago, so I suppose I'm extra sentimental about it.

Laid Back, New England Summer Entertaining

As a little girl, my New England-bred parents (who had been transplanted to Tennessee right around the time I was born), packed up our suburban every summer and drove up the eastern seaboard (sometimes with a boat in tow, sometimes with a dog, and always with four kids with far too much energy for a 22 hour drive) to escape the oppressive southern summers.

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.

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. Maybe it's because everyone just seems like they are in the happiest of moods. Whatever it is, I try to soak it up in every capacity and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
