Happy happy Friday, friends!
I hope it’s sunny, warm and extra summery wherever you are today. If you are a newsletter subscriber of mine, make sure you pay close attention to today’s newsletter!! There is a goodie in there you might want to see from a totally new brand. If you aren’t a current email subscriber, you can sign up HERE, and I’ll share the same thing in Saturday’s newsletter as well for you too.
From my sunshiny spot to yours, happy almost weekend! xx
Well, this guy here is certainly a favorite of mine…
…our realtor for our home here on Nantucket is the amazing Robert Young who could.not.be.more quintessentially Nantucket if he tried.
Born and raised on the island, he is the man. If you’ve been here before, I know you’ve walked past or probably rented bikes from Young’s Bicycle Shop (here since 1931), you’ve probably turned on a street with the same name too. When another friend casually told us to call him last year, we had no idea we were calling Mr. Nantucket himself.
Robert has taken our family in over the last year and loved on us big time (inviting us into his home, spoiling my kids with treats, he and his wife just being SO nice to us Texans when…I know my new house is ‘nice’ but trust me, it’s probably the smallest/least expensive home he’s sold in yearssssss). Needless to say, when we were at the beach Sunday afternoon, we were not surprised at all to see this handsome guy come walking up just because he wanted to treat my family to a ride in his 1934 Ford. See? How absolutely sweet?!
Who brings out their classic car and lets five sandy people climb in for a ride around town? Robert Young, that’s who 🙂 .
Side note, Kensington was happy to see the car but also happy to hold our place at the beach and work on her tan in lieu of a ride. #teenagers
So, my first Fave is our time riding around in this 1934 Ford…but more than that, it’s been the last year and all the time we’ve been able to spend with Robert Young.
My next Fave isn’t nearly as amazing (ha!)…
I’ve had this pack now for about a month, and I’m a really big fan! All of the color combos are super pretty. I bought the pack that includes these colors here: Black/White/Pink Sand/Milk Tea/Smokey Mauve/Cactus
Well, in a nutshell, Smith watched the new Arnold Schwarzenegger documentary on Netflix and now, I’m reliving my childhood…
First, he watched Twins the other day while I was sitting in the kitchen working…I haven’t seen that movie since I was like 10. I laughed multiple times while he watched it.
And then on Tuesday night, after everyone went to sleep, he and I stayed up and watched…
…this gem right here.
I haven’t thought about either of these movies in probably two decades, but both were really good to rewatch! If you’re looking for some fun, light, easy to watch movies this weekend, here are two.
…the dress I wore to Ashby’s birthday dinner at Cru was also from Lily too!
My linen top is currently on sale (in other colors as well!), and…
Around the holiday season, I always mention how solo stoves are great gifts for dads/grandpas/couples. We have already loved ours here on Nantucket for s’mores! So many of our neighbors have them too.
Now, the real question is, do you like your s’mores extra toasty or lightly toasty?
…two years ago this month, we took a spontaneous vacation to Mexico as a family. This still goes down as perhaps the best photo of us ever taken. Like ever. You can read about the whole fun adventure HERE!
This wraps up my week. Don’t forget, I’ll see you back here tomorrow for my bonus Saturday post! xx
