Some Sunny Morning

14th August, 2013

SunnyMorning1The beauty of country living lies in allowing oneself to take the time to make simple pleasures something special. Out here, meals are an occasion. Buying fresh produce from the farms, rolling dough for biscuits, then the making and plating and setting ~ it is all part of the fun. We’ve strewn rugs and pillows out onto our back patio, and take nearly every meal from this hidden oasis. Breakfasts are my favorite, starting the day amidst the rustling of trees and the chirping of birds sets a tone of serenity that carries me through the rest of the day. There are local melons, poached eggs and fresh fruit parfaits. Leisurely lunches usually look like a casual chicken salad over thickly sliced heirloom tomatoes, and dinners are languidly drawn-out affairs set to glistening candlelight and buttery white wines that lead to falling asleep under a blanket of stars.

    You have a natural glow these days that shines through your more pared-back looks. And I think we can all guess why…

  • Jessica

    I am loving these Montauk posts. Never leave? This one especially reminds me of something I just wrote about falling in love, how it’s less about a fantasy (that comes with infatuation) and more about seeing someone else’s truth and accepting it fully. If you’d like, it’s posted here —

  • Heather P.

    I can imagine a shoot like that is so difficult. I would just want to say “Enough! Time to eat!” 🙂
