This Sunday, my daughter and I leave the boys behind and head east for a sailing trip with our Connecticut cousins. We’ll make our way from Cape Cod to Martha’s Vineyard, then spend a long weekend in Edgartown. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this trip from the moment we planned it and can’t believe it’s actually here! I’m dying for her to experience the thrill of sailing – crossing my fingers that she loves it as much as my sisters and I do.
Two summers ago, our family spent a week on the Vineyard and the trip was by far my favorite that we’ve had with the children (the photos shown are all from that trip). At one point during a fishing excursion my son looked at me and said, “Mom, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you so happy.” And he was right. You know you’re doing what you love when time slips away and your joy-filled soul has no room for worries.
My posts and photos from that trip are without a doubt my absolute favorites, so I am sharing them here, here, and here as many of you are new to the aesthete and the dilettante since I first posted them. I hope you love them as much as I do. I can’t wait to share with you what I discover this time around. Until then, Happy Summer!
