Last week our friend Suzanne invited two of us to her beach house in a secluded spot on Fire Island.

We had it all to ourselves for a few days in between the coming and going's of her family.

Everything was postcard perfect. Delicious. Exquisite.

We spent the days sipping coffee, reading, stitching, walking from bay to beach and back again. The evenings settled seamlessly over wine, laughter, visitors and candlelit dinners on the porch. A late-night starry walk to the crashing surf.

Suzanne shared her famously adored recipes while we sat at the counter like little kids. Watching and learning. Mostly marvelling.
