What does your perfect Autumn afternoon look like? Luckily, I captured mine in photographs and I'd love to share them with you. My idea of a perfect fall afternoon takes place in Nantucket of course. It involves strolling the foliage, tree-lined, streets, with a Pumpkin Iced Coffee from, The Bean, on Centre Street.
A stop at Petticoat Row Bakery is always a must for a Red Velvet Whoopie Pie and a box of macarons to go.
Location: 35 Centre Street, Nantucket, MA. Fall Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 8AM – 5PM.
Sunday 8AM – 12PM. Closed Mondays.
I like to stroll at a leisurely pace to absorb the beauty, architecture, and storybook charm that holds my heart captive.
I stumbled upon a fabulously feminine boutique, Milly & Grace, which the owner named after each of her beloved Grandmas. The minute I stepped inside I said: "Oh, yes, this is exactly the type of shop I would love to own one day." Fashion, décor, jewelry and gifts, all in a pretty, ivy-lined shop, off of Main Street. As luck would have it, the owner, Emily, was there decorating for the holidays and displaying Christmas décor for sale.
How adorable is Emily? Gotta love a girl who loves her Grandmas!
Location: 2 Washington Street, Nantucket, MA. Hours: Open Daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
