There is no denying that summer on Nantucket is pure magic. But Fall? Fall is the real gem on the island. Can we keep that between us? It’s a time when the tourists have returned to their busy lives, yet the water is warm and the weather is perfect. September and October on Nantucket? Now that’s where some special island splendor goes down.
The seasons may change and the leaves may fall in many parts of the world, but there is nowhere quite like the show Mother Nature puts on in Vermont. I can’t tell you exactly why this mighty little state does this Autumn so well - but I do know I’ve never seen a place embrace it quite like the Green Mountain State.
If there was a place on this planet that truly gets me to the core, it would be Nantucket. I know, that's a big statement, but there is truly no other place that makes me feel the way Nantucket makes me feel. The moment I round Brant Point, I always feel so incredibly grateful. And I suppose I'm thankful to this magical island for giving me that gift. The gift of being truly present. Of appreciating every cobblestone, every sunset, every single shingle. On Nantucket, my brain is there and nowhere else - and that's something I always pay attention to.
This little corner of the world, known as Watch Hill, Rhode Island, holds the most special place in my heart. If it wasn't for this tiny little part of the tiniest state in the country, a little girl from Tennessee would never have met her New England match. It's because of this tiny little place I met Andrew. It's where we had our first date, it's where we got married. It's where we'll go for the rest of our life to have endless "remember when" conversations. It's beyond special to us.
