Last fall, when we were out shoot for Nantucket Looms Holiday, I had the privilege of staying at The Roberts Collection along with Erin while we were on the island and we fell in love. It's location is just perfect for the days when we are running around like crazy, but even better when we get to stop and enjoy the island for a bit.
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.
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.
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.
