Here is a link to my Fall Foliage post in Concord from two years ago with lots of photos of the town.
Last weekend Emma and I tagged along with Mike back to the Boston area for a work trip. He travels there often, but we haven't been back since we moved back "home" last year. We had a fabulous time visiting some of our friends and old favorites - Concord, Beacon Hill and Back Bay. We also took a little trip out to Nantucket for the night - the one place we never got to go that was on my list. I'll be sharing more (a lot more...) photos later this week, but first I wanted to share this little tiny arrangement inspired by our trip. My Mother-in-Law is a fabulous traveler and always does a ton of shopping on their trips. Their house is filled with pieces of art, blankets, pottery, china, etc. that all have special meaning and were collected along the way - not gift shop type souvenirs, but beautiful things that they love from specialty boutiques, inns and farms. I recently noticed a new engraved pewter champagne bucket at their house - apparently, they ordered it while at Blackberry Farm this last Fall on a trip for their anniversary. Now every time she walks by it she's reminded of their special weekend.
