Nantucket, one of my favorite places on earth, is an island I've visited every summer since childhood. In Algonquion (the native language of the first settlers), it means, "far away island" - and for me it symbolizes a magical place we trek to annually, that conjures far away memories normally tucked away during the year's hustle and bustle. I'm not sure if it's the dunes, the sandy beach paths, the thick salty air, the cobblestones, or the bustle of Main Street - but Nantucket for me is a reminder of perfect summer, simple joys, and tradition. A sort of wonderful constant.
It was so nice to be on island with my whole family and enjoy some down time, but I always love my time at Centre Pointe in town for our annual trunk show. I've had many summer trunk shows on Nantucket, but this one was our most successful to date! It was so rewarding as a designer to see so many of our clients wearing their ASHA and I loved getting to meet so many new faces. I realize how much the business has grown - a true testament to hard work, passion & perseverance. A lesson I'm grateful to be able to teach to my daughter, Annabel. I really do feel fortunate to do what I love, and travel to amazing places and meet world class people while I'm at it. Thank you to our incredible clients who have made this a reality.
Here are some visual highlights from the trip and some favorite places along the way. xx Ashley
