I am packing my bags again for a quick “surprise” trip to San Francisco for my birthday! Patrick had the entire trip planned as a surprise, but decided to tell me because the weather is a little funky in Northern California. Living in Dallas, I was having a hard time even thinking about buying coats, sweaters and boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but since I now have the perfect excuse, I have been filling my cart with some great deals! I showed you my early access picks last week and I am making sure to follow the same strategy.
There is something so charming about the island. Maybe it is the rich history or the hydrangeas in full bloom, but whatever it may be I never wanted to leave. I was seriously considering sending for the dogs and moving into Mackenzie’s family home. Mackenzie and her family were the best hosts, they showed us all of their favorite spots on the island, one of them being the ‘Sconset Bluff Walk. If you are not familiar, the bluff walk is a little walking path through the backyards of some of the island’s oldest homes. On one side is the ocean and the other side you have an unobstructed view of the beautiful homes.
I may be suffering from those post-vacation blues, but looking at these pictures has never made me so happy. I just got back from a 5 day trip to Nantucket. Mackenzie and her family have been vacationing on the island since before she was born, so I could not think of a more perfect host to show us around her favorite place. I was lucky enough to visit Nantucket with her and Amy last September, but this was the first time Patrick was able to see this very special place.
