Did I Mention Martha's?

Did I mention that I went to Martha's Vineyard?  Why yes, I think I did!  ;)  And I LOVED it.  

It rained almost the entire time.

I didn't care.

As soon as I stepped on the ferry I knew that I was going to like everything about this island.  The color of the water under the grey sky was a dark turquoise/gray/blue and I kept thinking how I wanted to paint a room that color so that I could remember it every day.  I even had a brief moment when I thought that I should decorate my entire house in a nautical theme because I was so entranced by the rope, the water, the boats, the houses, etc.  The weekend was definitely full of perfect moments.



Even though it was rainy, even dark and stormy at times, I think that in a way it added to the beauty of the island.  The color of the houses and flowers contrasting with the flowers and grasses was amazing.




We went shopping on Saturday before the wedding and the heavens had mercy on us and the rain stopped.  We were able to walk along the docs and waters were calm and glassy.  Maureen, my friend and travel buddy, and I ate at a yummy restaurant where we had omelettes, coffee, and cocoa.  








And the beach?  Beautiful would be an understatement.  








The grand finale of the weekend was Lauren's wedding.  The ceremony was held in this pretty island church and Lauren was absolutely stunning.  The details at her wedding reception were amazing.  There were little stations where you could write a message to send out to sea in a glass bottle and instead of signing a guest book we signed adirondack chairs for the couple.  I won't even talk about the crab cakes that were carried around on trays during the cocktail hour... DELISH!  





Maureen, Lauren, and I at the ceremony.


 Lauren and Derek,
Thank you so much for the amazing time.
The only downfall to the weekend was realizing how much I miss you both. 
{and I know Caleb does too!}
We can't wait to see you again!
