Oh Nantucket… how do we love thee? Let us count the ways. And with this special blACKbook feature, we’ve got 28 of them, in fact! Over the course of the past month, we’ve been shouting out some of favorite Instagram accounts and their best ACK photos while giving them the chance to tell blACKbook fans why they love life on the Grey Lady. And now, with our final day of the month of Feb… we have them all together! For the love of Nantucket… here are the many photos and reasons why we love this magical little island.
“If you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed that I recently went through a breakup. 🖤You’ll also notice that immediately following that breakup, the only logical solution was to book a flight to Nantucket. So This V-Day, Nantucket is my true love, and here’s how I came to this realization. 💕FOR THE LOVE OF NANTUCKET 💕Nantucket is home to so many important aspects of my life, and is filled with love story after love story. I even met my first love on this island, and the memories that I have and the community I’ve built will stay with me for a lifetime. 💜FOR THE LOVE OF WORK💜 I knew I wanted to be a Lilly girl when I attended my first Midnight Madness sale. My job at In The Pink was the first in my career in retail, and inspired me to chase after what I love- all the way to NYC. 💙FOR THE LOVE OF FAMILY 💙My family is scattered across the country, and nothing gathers extended loved ones quite like a beach house. Fam reunions are no joke in the Zona household though, we break out the pictionary and we take no prisoners. Period. 💚💚FOR THE LOVE OF COMMUNITY 💚One of the best parts about working with blACKbook is the network that you establish once you immerse yourself in all the island has to offer. Some of my fondest memories have come from connecting with powerful women, toasting with entrepreneurs, and listening to the storied past that makes this island so special. 💛FOR THE LOVE OF FRIENDSHIP 💛When I was 9, my parents dragged me me (kicking & screaming) to summer camp on the island. There was no consoling me, I was a wreck. However, on the first day of that summer camp I met my best friend, Elizabeth. She is still my BFF & we’ve lived together on the island the past 2 summers ❤️FOR THE LOVE OF LOVE ❤️ So… I started this post on a low note, but see how far we’ve come?! I figured out this weekend on my impromptu reset that true love doesn’t have to be 50 shades of sexy in order to get the heart pumping. True love is the comfort that you can find even on the greyest of grey lady days – it’s that love that keeps you coming home.” ~Emily Zona
