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.
“The thing about light is that it really isn’t yours; it’s what you gather and shine back. And it gets more power from reflectiveness; if you sit still and take it in, it fills your cup, and then you can give it off yourself.” ✨ - Anne Lamott
I love Nantucket. It's really hard not to love that sweet little island. And although the summer is magic, I think the off season might be my favorite time to visit. The crowds have gone back to their busy lives, and the island slows down a bit. Back to real island time. And I love that.
There is nothing I love more on these crisp late summer / early fall days than a stroll around the grounds at the Ocean House. It truly never gets old. And even though summer seems to truly shine around these parts, I love this magnificent property in every season. And this little striped number from Elizabeth McKay? It was basically made for such strolls (and for me - I'm kind of obsessed).
