Easy Weekend Wear for Fall

September 14, 2018

Sunflower season is upon us and it always reminds me of fall on Martha’s Vineyard.   We had our wedding celebration here on Island 5 years ago at the start of October and our rehearsal dinner celebration was full of bright, glorious sunflowers, red checkered table cloths and apple cider cocktails.   I will see if I can find us that recipe because it was delicious and so suitable and warming. We are busy prepping the house for Will’s parents who arrive…

An Approachable & Fun Fall Table

September 12, 2018

We are just back to the Vineyard after traveling down to New York this past weekend to photograph a huge wedding weekend.    It was a beautiful and joyful few days with the most loving (and in love) couple who have become fast friends.   I spent most of the day culling and editing, I like to get cracking as quickly as possible, and after a long evening run and a visit to the market, threw together this simple, easy table…

Fall Reboot: Beauty & Exercise Regimes

September 4, 2018

I love this time of year, and the back to school feeling.   For me, fall has always been a time of routines set and followed, a rhythmic pace of life after a summer packed with travel, lots of late nights, endless wine and other indulgences.    I also find with the onset of cooler weather and earlier sunsets, it’s a lot easier to take exercise outside, which is always my preferred format, and that I settle into the comfort of…

Romance by the Sea

August 30, 2018

I love this dock, and being by the sea, in all weather.   We have spent many summer nights here gazing at the stars and cozy freezing nights snuggled up under what feels like a thousand blankets with friends drinking red wine in late fall.    Once, a great friend’s bracelet slipped through the crack and her boyfriend went diving for it in the icy sea — we all had in nervous giggles as he got down to his underwear and…

Dreamy Routine: Sunset Bike Ride

August 29, 2018

Is there anything more pleasurable than ending a work day outside?  Yesterday we hitched our bikes onto the back of the car and took them up island.   We have a key to the most beautiful, expansive and wild beach.   It’s too far to bike (an all day excursion) with the baby in tow so we got as close as we could, parked and rode the rest of the way.   What a pleasure it is ride on on smooth, quiet roads…

Last of Summer Pies

August 28, 2018

I have picked up cooking again.   I took a break — I mean a really long, long break but I’m back, and I am finding it so completely relaxing and pleasurable to focus on feeding my boys.    I’m not quite sure what jump started it, a mix of things I think.   I watched great friends cooking in France with such ease and was reminded of why I loved it.    I keep telling you how much the produce on…
