I just arrived home from the most surreal weekend away on Martha's Vineyard.
My former roomate Pheobe is getting hitched this summer. Otis, myself, and about 15 of their friends were invited to a very special engagement party at a family farm on "the vineyard."
I know that few people get to experience this gorgeous island in the manner that we did. We stayed on a 100 acre farm in an extremely rural part of the island and the party was held in the barn on Saturday night.
At one point I turned to someone and said, "I don't know what magazine or movie this is....but I like it."
It was a fantastic few days filled with such amazing beauty and such an incredible cast of characters I know that an event like this could never be replicated again.
favorite moments -
::watching the sun rise over the fishing boats docked near our ferry:::napping on the beach sheltered by towering cliffs:::seeing double rainbows::meeting a family whose generosity is tough to match:::sleeping with soulful wooden planks overhead:::feeling the breeze wash over me as I slept in a sleeping bar:::making s'mores:::seeing fireflies that look like twinkle lights in trees:::buying wool at a sheep farm:::twinkle lights lighting a barn:::weathered yankee faces:::an old icebox filled with beer and blocks of ice:::spying seals bobbing in crystal blue water:::laughing with friends, both old and new:::
memories like these are good indeed.
