Bye Bye, Nantucket!!

Today is our last day on Nantucket & we are about to hop the ferry home. When we woke up this morning, the rain was coming down after having incredible weather all week.

But like I said to my favorite little preppy island: “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened!”

Happy Friday y’all!

And now we have to have our LAST birthday giveaway! Just leave us a comment below saying hi & we’re going to pick one lucky winner to receive a $50 gift card to Adorama! We’ll announce both the Yankee & Adorama winners early next week! And….GO!!
