Happy happy SATURDAY!
It’s another edition of Shay’s Summer Saturdays!
We had a BIG day yesterday celebrating Ashby, so today, I think we *might* chill a bit. In the meantime, I have some summer fun to share to kick off your weekend.
From my Saturday to yours, sending you so much love! xx
Smith strikes again! By Day Two, he had Mades riding a bike 🙂 . They’ve been practicing…
…every day now, and she’s getting so good!
I know I said this on Thursday, but it bears repeating, I’ve been wearing Vuori on repeat over here!
So cute, right?!
I have several great Saturday sales for you this week…
I love this tote! It zips, it’s spacious, and it’s on sale!
My super cute dress here comes in so many other colors and is on sale today!
This super cute tennis dress (available in so many colors!) is on sale!
If you’re looking for a swimsuit, you can mix and match so many at Old Navy right now! They’re all priced so well!
And basically my entire summer wardrobe is on sale at J.Crew right now too 🙂 .
As you might imagine, I often get asked what my favorite Elin Hilderbrand books are and my answer is almost always these two…
…I almost always recommend The Identicals (an adorable novel about twin sisters…one living on Nantucket while the other lives on Martha’s Vineyard), and…
…The Blue Bistro which is loosely based on…
…the restaurant Galley Beach here on Nantucket which is pretty spectacular as it sits right on the beach with the most amazing sunsets.
Speaking of Nantucket…
On Tuesday night, Andrew and I had reservations at a restaurant that we’ve always wanted to try, but never had the opportunity/got around to it…
…American Seasons. You guys, IT WAS DELICIOUS!
This restaurant is just the coziest and in the most quaint little building in town where it serves seasonal fare and a changing menu. We just happened to have reservations on a night when it was chilly and raining, and the ambiance could not have been more perfect.
I had the roasted chicken and potatoes…
…and Andrew had the halibut. We shared the sticky toffee pudding for dessert, and the entire meal was perfection. I highly recommend this spot and hope we can go visit them again soon!
I know I probably sound like a broken record, but you guys, I LOVE THESE CLIENTS SO MUCH TOO!!!
…how adorable is this family?! We have sent these four all over the world (a few times over), and with each trip (like the one they took last week to France and the Netherlands), I love them even more.
That mom might look sweet back there, but she’ll talk some baseball smack with me 😉 . She loves her Orioles and well, I don’t. Ha!
I love seeing all the photos in my texts and email from happy clients on vacation. It fills my heart with such JOY! Don’t forget, you can reach out to us HERE for more information on how we can help you get on vacation too!
Ashby told me I could use this picture. Hahaha! She is the ultimate dog whisper, and it was like Yankee was trying to hold her. Okay, we used the sweetest people to transport Poppy and Yankee here to Nantucket. We loved them and would absolutely recommend them to others. We used Pawfect Partners and you can reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. They were TOO sweet for words!
One last little Nantucket thing, we have been staying at The Nantucket Hotel and Resort for YEARS and always enjoy their restaurant and bar, The Breeze. Whether you are staying there or not, you should totally stop in to the bar for a drink. Great atmosphere and fabulous service!
That wraps up this Saturday! I have had so many sweet emails, DMs and comments this week from all of you encouraging me/letting me know you’ve done something similar/telling me you love the Nantucket content/asking how we are/etc, and I’m beyond thankful for all of it. Here’s the deal, we have been having the best time and thoroughly love the weather, the people, the food and all of this extra family time. We’ve been outside way more than normal and spent waaaaaaay more time together. Guess what? There are pros and cons to that. Ha! We have brought a lot of goodness to Nantucket, but we also brought our same old problems and issues, and we’re living in closer quarters without a whole lot of separation. We’re having a blast, but we’re also still bickering about the same old thing. I wouldn’t change any of it though because if quarantine 2020 taught me anything it’s that a whole lot of togetherness can be excruciating and beautiful…and it’s often only for a season, so we better enjoy it. Four kids all to myself all summer long? I’m already thankful for it.
Okay, I hope you all have an amazing weekend! I’ll see you on Monday! xx
