{A few of my favorite things this week that I either just discovered or already know I couldn’t do without}

1.     Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Hedges Inn – These super soft, chocolate chip cookies covered in powdered sugar greet you each time you enter The Hedges Inn and I got so accustomed to scooping up this treat after a long day of walking in town that I only assumed they would be on my own kitchen counter when I arrived home.  {They were not.}

2.     Dressen’s Donuts {at Scoop Du Jour} – Their ice cream is great, but so are their other baked goods.  Scoop Du Jour gets in shipments of cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop in NYC and they bake their own famous Dressen’s donuts, which you should not miss if you stop into town.

3.     Serena and Lily – I have long been a fan of Serena and Lily catalogs and their online shop, but they opened up their first retail store last Memorial Day weekend and I finally got to check it out.  Located on Montauk Highway in Wainscott, it was a perfect place to stop on our way out of town.  The place is packed with personal touches and hand-picked vintage items as well as their stylish furniture, bedding, kids shop accessories and great upholstery selection.

4.     Wolffer Estate Wine Stand – Wolffer Estate Vineyard is home to a stunning building, beautiful landscape, great wine, and it is the venue where my husband and I got married.  So, all-in-all, an amazing place for us to visit.  They also have a wine stand up the hill from the main building that has a more casual vibe, an unbelievable view of the vineyard and it’s where you can capture a breathtaking sunset.  They have their wines to purchase by the bottle or the glass and you can bring a blanket and set up camp on the lawn or hang out at one of the many tables.  They also have live music on the weekends, at no additional cost.
