I am constantly asked about my love for Rhode Island. What I love about it. Where first timers should stay. Where they should eat. It seems that people who haven’t discovered this special little state don’t quite understand why people love it so - that is, until they visit. Then they just can’t deny the magic. And you know what’s so beautiful about this special state? There are people who have lived their entire lives here and still haven’t uncovered all the pretty parts - because it’s just so easy to get happy and content in your own personal corner.Read More
We were so excited (and maybe a little nervous) to take our first trip with Henry. Traveling has always been a big thing for us. It’s always been something that brought us together even after the most hectic stretches of time. Something to look forward to. Something to get us out of our comfort zone a bit and into a more comfortable zone for us - vacation mode. We are good at vacationing. And I realize some people aren’t - but Andrew and I are our best selves on vacation, and I want Henry to see that side of us.Read More
I hesitate writing this post because I am absolutely sure it will jinx us for future trips, but alas, here we go.
I’m just going to say it. Henry was amazing on his first official vacation. Dare I say he was even more behaved? Granted, we’ve been taking him to Vermont since he was a wee 4 week old so I suppose he’s a bit seasoned, but this was the first time we hopped on a plane and put our parenting to a real test. It was the first time I truly had the “is this worth it??” moment. And it was. It really was. Here’s how we tackled everything to make it not only seamless, but really really fun.Read More
If there was a place on this planet that truly gets me to the core, it would be Nantucket. I know, that's a big statement, but there is truly no other place that makes me feel the way Nantucket makes me feel. The moment I round Brant Point, I always feel so incredibly grateful. And I suppose I'm thankful to this magical island for giving me that gift. The gift of being truly present. Of appreciating every cobblestone, every sunset, every single shingle. On Nantucket, my brain is there and nowhere else - and that's something I always pay attention to.Read More
Over Memorial Day Weekend, we had the pleasure of changing things up a bit and heading north for the long weekend thanks to the Atlantic Canada Agreement on Tourism (ACAT). For the longest time, we've been dying to get up to this beautiful corner of the world, and we jumped at the chance to see if for ourselves.Read More
It never fails. The minute February rolls around I start to crave some serious vitamin D like nobody's business. Yes, even me, the certified snow queen needs an escape to the warm weather in the depths of winter. I just like to remember what it feels like to wear flip flops again, to not have ten layers on at all times and to twirl around in a dress again. It's really the little things.Read More
