Pumpkin spiced latte season is just around the corner. Are you skipping to Starbucks yet? Well, I’m absolutely not. One thing you may or may not know about me, is that I absolutely despise the cold weather. I’m not a fan of pumpkin spiced lattes, I miss the green leaves once they change color, and flutter to the ground, and I hate sweater season. Bah humbug. Oh wait…wrong season, right?
With the Labor Day holiday weekend fast approaching, you’re looking for that must-have beach accessory, aren’t you? Unicorns are all the rage these days, so why not draw extreme attention to your beach bod for the last time this summer with one, giant unicorn inflatable raft? You are already imagining unicorns leaping across rainbows in the sky aren’t you? Is the sky also raining champagne, in celebration of the last summer weekend as well? I thought so.
Countdown to Labor Day weekend Beauties! Are you traveling over the holiday? Did you make fancy plans? If not, no worries. Today, I’m recapping my favorite places and spaces from our recent trip to Martha’s Vineyard. If you live in NYC, you can get there by train, and ferry in a pinch. Although it takes awhile, it’s great for a last minute get away. You’ll find the island to be quaint, charming, and ever so peaceful. So, buckle up and start to scroll. Here’s my list of must-see destinations to check out while vacationing on the Vineyard.
Do you have a childhood memory you cherish? One that you reflect on, and it gives you butterflies? For me, it’s traveling to Martha’s Vineyard. On our recent trip to the Vineyard, Grant and I spent time exploring a few favorite places that I used to visit with my family many years ago. When I was younger, I remember hoping that I’d be able to bring my future husband, back to explore a place that was so special to me. Although Grant has been to Martha’s Vineyard a few times with my family, this time it was just us, and it was just as dreamy as I imagined.
Beach chairs, colorful towels, and we were off! On a sticky, summer day, we bolted to the beach, feeling the grains of sand between our toes as we ran. The trek felt long, but worth it.
Sequined party dress..check! Perfectly manicured nails…check! Champagne and sassy stilettos? Double check! Typically, these are my thoughts each year as my birthday weekend rolls around. I get excited about the party, and I love to dress up.
It was a lovely evening on Martha’s Vineyard, and we decided to journey to Menemsha Beach, which is famous for its gorgeous sunsets. Ever since I was a child, we made a tradition of spending time at Menemsha Beach. The beach was just as I remembered it, with boats docked at the harbor, soft white sand, gentle ocean waves, and a cool breeze. We laid out our blankets, beach chairs, and unpacked the lobster rolls we picked up from the local shop. We opened a great bottle of wine, and toasted to the beautiful evening.
While vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, we enjoyed the sunny weather and spent time at Lambert’s Cove Beach. The beach was a welcomed change from the Concrete Jungle, otherwise known as Manhattan.
While vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, we spent an evening strolling through Edgartown. It is a beautiful, quaint little town on the water, full of white picket fences, lovely homes, and charming boutiques. The town is so picturesque. We walked through the shops, admired the boats, and dined at a wonderful restaurant called Alchemy.
My long awaited week of relaxation had arrived, and I was bursting with excitement. I was on my way to Martha’s Vineyard, a small island located in Massachusetts, just off the coast of Cape Cod. Martha’s Vineyard has been my family’s vacation destination, since I was a child, and I have many wonderful memories there.
