Food and Fun in Martha’s Vineyard
So, in case you’ve noticed my blog has been a little more quiet than normal lately. Why you may ask? (or maybe no one is asking,) but whether you are asking or not this is my blog and I’m gonna share it with you! :) I got back earlier today from a long weekend in Martha’s Vineyard. In case you aren’t familiar, it is a small, beachy island in Massachusetts that can only be reached by boat or plane. I was so lucky to get invited to visit the last few days and I fell in love with it. The vibe is relaxed, the beaches and nature are stunning and the food was out of this world! We literally ate so many times per day that we actually tried to figure out ways to get hungry faster so we could just go eat again (riding bikes around the island worked well!)
So. though this isn’t a normal recipe-filled blog post. I hope you enjoy seeing some of what we ate this weekend! I also threw in the cheesy romantic-themed one above because it can’t all be about the food right? (I also figured out how to make collages on here and I got a little too excited.) Enjoy!

Yes- I took 6 pictures at one place. But I fell in LOVE with Sweet E’s cupcakes in Vineyard Havens. The story is He used to work at Magnolia Bakery and after a few bites of the Salted Caramel cupcake (2nd row middle) I could tell. These cupcakes were so beautiful and inspirational!

Are you drooling? Because even though I just finished eating this stuff I kinda want another lobster roll. And that ice cream sandwich! Anyway- we’ll be back to the recipes soon. I hope you enjoyed this little compilation of my trip!

Just found your blog and love it :) I grew up spending summers at our house on Martha’s Vineyard…and while we sold our house about 10 years ago, this post made me miss it so much!!!
You are so interesting! I don’t suppose I have read through a single thing like that before. So great to discover someone with a few original thoughts on this subject. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This site is something that is needed on the internet, someone with some originality!
Thank you from Maghera ;)
All this food looks amazing! Every year my family and I rent out one of those classic Martha’s Vineyard Vacation Rentals and I swear the food alone keeps my family coming back. Can’t wait for this summer!
