I fell in love with beautiful cedar shake houses and
gardens . . . and water views . . . that are abundant
on the magnificent island of Martha’s Vineyard.
I had the great opportunity of traveling with my hubby to the Northeast
where he had a conference to attend.
Even though there is so much for me to do at home,
my philosophy is to enjoy and savor each moment and opportunity that life offers.
Before the conference, we decided to take a few days and visit Martha’s Vineyard.
A place that has always been on my bucket list.
Here is one of my favorite photos that I took while we were there.
The hydrangeas there were amazing … the colors … the sizes of the blooms … breathtaking!
We walked, and walked, taking in the amazing homes and views.
My hubby has an architecture background and he loves studying the various homes
of the places we visit. Lucky for me!
Here he is taking mental notes of this house that he liked . . . gathering ideas
for a possible future downsized home! 🙂
What is more wonderful than seeing the flag being flown on most of the homes there.
And here I am in front of one of my favorite homes there.
On another note: see my short bangs? … yes, folks, a defective hotel hair dryer
fried my bangs! … I have never wished more for my hair to grow quickly than now! 🙂
A close up of the front door of this home.
Another door in the front of this home showcases a whale above the door.
Gorgeous gardens surrounds the home.
And water views!
We all dream about the house with the white picket fence …. and this one is the ultimate!!
Amazing home and gardens right?…..and that view!
And talk about amazing …..
Some of the highlights of my trip was meeting these fabulous ladies . . .
my blog friends that I have known for a long time and we finally got to meet!
When we traveled to Boston, I got to meet Amy of Maison Decor
along with her sweet hubby!
Here we are getting ready to go into the SOWA Vintage Market in Boston.
Amy and my hubby scored with great finds.
You can see one of Amy’s beautiful finds HERE.
After Boston, we made a short trip to Maine
where I got to spend a great day and evening with Linda aka Lulu of Lulu’s Musings
and her wonderful hubby too!
We had a great time antiquing and exploring her neck of the woods.
She took me to one of her favorite places for inspiration and reflection
and it truly was breathtaking. Here we are at the entrance to the “scenic overlook”
My trip was truly a most wonderful one that not only allowed me to visit
and stay in places that were so incredible, but most of all, it was a time
when I was able to create and treasure beautiful memories
of sensational people and places.
Have a most beautiful day filled with great times that create great memories!
