Spring Beach Campfire

We had the most beautiful weather this past weekend.  It was such sweet relief after a week of gloom.  So, we were left with no choice but to take advantage.  Steve’s family and our friend Tom were out visiting and we thought, “Well, we are on Nantucket – let’s go to the beach!”   We packed up the cars, bundled up and headed out towards Great Point.  It was pretty cold and windy but the sun was shining so we were happy campers. beachfire beachfire2 beachfire3 beachfire4We enjoyed our afternoon Motto!  Tom invented this drink.  It is delicious.  It’s changed my life and I have given up coffee.  I’ve posted about it before. Read the latest news about Motto in the Boston Business Journal!!

My friend Amanda is getting married!!!  Amanda and I met in Aspen 6 years ago where we spent the winter as Ralph Lauren girls and ski bunnies.  She is one of the kindest, most thoughtful and sweetest people I’ve ever met and I am so happy that we’ve remained friends over the years.  Her lovely sisters, Jessie & Erika, organized the all time greatest bachelorette trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  There were 11 of us and we had the best time.  We relaxed in the sun during the day and ate delicious food and enjoyed some cocktails in the evening and we did that on repeat for 4 days!  Arrriba!!

Here is the lovely bride to be! MMamandaMMpalmsMMbeachMMbeachtimeAmanda being serenaded! MMbandVictor came by every morning with fresh coconut juice!MMVictorAfter we finished our juice, he came back to cut them open so we could eat the coconut meat.  He topped it with lime juice and chili flakes.  It was so delicious and refreshing. MMCoconuts
