Figawi Weekend


I'm checking out early this week, I leave for Nantucket in the morning for an extended long weekend vacation.

It's Figawi weekend, the annual race from the Cape to Nantucket that takes place every Memorial Day.


The weather looks not too hot, yet not too cold...just how I like it.  I used to go to Nantucket ever summer as a kid, but I haven't been in a few years and it will be so nice to be back!

The race will be sad without a familiar face, but Ted Kennedy Jr. will continue in his fathers footsteps and race Mya.

I cant wait to see the cobblestone streets, beautiful homes and picturesque beaches again.


I hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day weekend!!


PS- before I leave I have a great giveaway, so be sure to check back again later today for details!!

I heart Nantucket. I hope you have a great time.

I'm stealing the trellis that is layered up the side of that Dutchie. It's perfect for the side of my house!!

Life's Little Lessons- the last time I was there we rented a house with a bunch of friends. But before that I've stayed at the White Elephant or The Beachside Inn.
