The La Petite Peach team is taking a two week hiatus! All of us here at headquarters, and in our Boston satellite location have been working hard around the clock, and are deserving of some R&R! Although we hate to be away from blogging for one minute, we have SO many exciting things happening when we get back. Make sure you rejoin us on July 15th for our first annual RECIPE WEEK! We have the best of the best sharing their most favorite recipes for our readers. Until then, here is where we will be…
Every summer while I was growing up, we would pack up and go to Martha’s Vineyard. It’s only a boat ride away from Cape Cod but it always felt worlds away. I love that now I get to take my own family there for some relaxing and fun in the sun. The landscape reminds me of Europe with it’s rolling hills and endless stone walls. I can’t resist sharing my favorite things to do while I am on Island….it was so hard to narrow it down to a few things! Hope you enjoy! -Desiree follow my adventures on Instagram @desireemspinner

It has been almost 5 years since I visited Europe last, and I can’t believe that my boyfriend and I have an opportunity to spend some time there together! We rented an apartment in the middle of Rome for a whole month, and are so excited to explore our neighborhood, get our espressos from the morning café, create meals with fresh Italian produce, and take adventures to other parts of Europe. Take a look at what I am packing for my trip; I am only bringing the essentials since I plan on making some purchases while we are there! I absolutely can’t wait to get to Rome and tell you more about it! – Heidi
