james and i have a thing for islands. we met on one, so we chalk it up to that.
for james’s 30th birthday on tuesday, i took him on a much-needed getaway to the north fork of long island. we stayed at the lovely north fork table and inn where we enjoyed a delightful dinner and a superior breakfast as well as a delicious night’s sleep in a room where we didn’t hit our heads upon getting out of bed in the morning {read more about our tiny abode here}. 
we hiked along dunes, cuddled with horses, sipped local wines, hitched rides on ferries, and took countless walks down long docks. and yes, we survived to tell the tale.

    i do so love the north fork.
    if you are both ever in maine, you should visit us on an island off the midcoast – it's an hour ferry ride on a good day, not for the faint of heart.

    The light in these photos is stunning. And cuddling horses sounds like a lovely way to spend a day.
