When you shop at Conroy’s Apothecary, you can’t help but look around and see what else you might need. One day while shopping for cold medicine, I noticed these sleek modern candles on the counter. Of course I felt compelled to smell them. I was really impressed with the scents. The candles smelled so fresh and close […]

What in the world is the Meat Ball you might be wondering. Well, it’s a great Winter event(s) that celebrates the locally grown meats from farms on the Martha’s Vineyard, and is a great little FUNraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society, which hosts the Meat Ball. The Meat Ball is actually a series of events […]

Last year, my friend Kim asked me to write a blog about Vineyard Montessori’s Truckin’ MV event. At the time, I didn’t really know much about it so, I declined. Then I went to Truckin’ MV and was blown away by how much fun it was. Of course, most of the fun was geared towards […]

When you’re in Oak Bluffs, one of the best, and one of the few places to get coffee is Mocha Mott’s. Last winter, when it closed for renovations, many of us were devastated.

A couple of years ago, my friend Nicole Cabot told me her daughter, Violet, was part of a group, from the West Tisbury School, called Straw Free MV. Straw Free MV is working to make a change on the Island by eliminating straw use. Fast forward to last week, when I noticed a Straw Free MV […]

Not sure if you’ve noticed the small raft with what looks like a box on it off the beach at Eastville, in Oak Bluffs. A curious site. It happens to be the home of Cottage City Oysters. In May of 2015, Dan & Greg Martino started Cottage City Oysters with 50,000 oyster seeds (a small […]
