Crashing Computers and Nantucket Snapshots


So happy to be back after some major technical difficulties last week. I sat down to write some posts last Monday morning only to find out my computer screen was black, and it continuously beeped at me. Despite my best efforts (which included rebooting it and willing it on) I couldn’t fix it. It was a situation straight out of the scene in Sex And The City where she wraps her Mac in a pashmina and rushes it to the store, only to find out she had lost everything. Well, it wasn’t quite that dramatic, and there wasn’t a pashmina involved, but you get the picture. The genius bar at the Mac store is on my top 5 least favorite places. If you’ve been there, you know what I’m talking about—it always takes five times longer than they tell you, and they never have good news. Nevertheless, my computer is out of the “technology hospital” and back in action, still as slow as it was before, but it turns on again, so I’ve got that going for me.

............Onto a recap from our Nantucket visit a few weeks ago.

I went right from Vermont to Nantucket to meet my family for some serious QT. My aunt and uncle live in Nantucket year round, and it's the perfect place for all of us to meet and spend time together. Nantucket might be one of the most photogenic places I have ever been to. Around every corner is a house more perfect than the last, white picket fences, rose bushes, and cobble stone streets. Need I say more?

We stayed at the Nantucket Hotel, and I only have good things to say. The location couldn’t be more perfect if you're someone who likes to be within walking distance to town. It was bright and clean. One of my favorite things to do in the morning is to get a coffee at The Hub and walk around town. It is one of the prettiest towns in the North East. The water temperature and the presence of seals kept me on the beach instead of the water. It was so nice to relax and spend time together.
