My countdown to summer has officially begun.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m leaving for our first official family vacation (ever) in just 16 days so I think it’s more than fair to start the countdown to summer right about NOW!  We’re traveling to St. Thomas which is one of the US Virgin Islands so it will essentially feel like summer for me from April 2nd through April 9th and then it’s only 7 short weeks until Memorial Day.  Here in New England, that’s the official kick-off weekend where everyone will start their summer 2016 fun!  I’m looking forward to day trips to the beach, warm summer nights by the fire pit and lots of cook-outs surrounded by friends and family.


Dune Jewelry has a great summer planned as well with lots of notable & new things happening – including our first ever Carolina’s Trunk Show Tour which will kick off on June 14th.  We’re also in the beginning stages of planning a cool fundraising effort somewhere on the Cape or possibly in Rockport, MA to benefit Ocean Conservancy.  Stay tuned for details.

IMG_1988I would love to hear what travels and adventures you’re planning this summer.  I’m always excited when I receive sand stories from our customers so please send them along for a chance to be featured in our Dune Jewelry blog.  I’d love to hear about vacations, weddings, honeymoons, summer beach home shenanigans or even why your beach means so much to you.  The winner will also receive a custom piece of Dune created personally for you – and handcrafted by me.
