The best way to celebrate a birthday is on Nantucket...so I'm lucky mine falls in August. We spent most of the day lounging on the beach, soaking up some much needed vitamin D. I picked up this Roberta Roller Rabbit dress in town (here) earlier in the week, and it was the perfect thing for both the beach and trips in and around town.
Once we felt appropriately crispy, we headed home for outdoor showers and clean clothes, returning to the beach for dinner just as the sun started to dip. We cracked open a bottle of my favorite Rosé, and set up for a delicious dinner. We brought our portable gas grill to make burgers (turkey burger for me) as well as a lot of pre-made sides: guacamole and chips, roasted tomato caprese salad, Ina Garten's potato salad (the only one worth having), etc.
After we were sufficiently full and the sun had set, we headed back to the house where we capped off the night with presents and an ice cream pie from The Juice Bar. The perfect way to celebrate my 24th!
