The Best of Summer

2016-03-08_0013

Every summer has its own story and some summers (like this one) are so saturated with sunshine and sublime moments that we wish we could exist in their pages forever.

The summer of 2016 marked a beautiful chapter in the story of Emily Moon. Many memories were made in Simon’s Bar and Emily’s Restaurant over lazy lunches, sundowners and candlelit dinners.
