    Until Next Year {Newport}

    October 6, 2015


    Hi, friends! We’re home from Newport now and we had a wonderful time there. It was great spending time with family, and I especially love all of our traditions. They’re the best part of our trip, and I look forward to them so much. On our final night in Newport, we enjoyed an early dinner at […]


    Rolling Down Thames Street

    October 3, 2015


    Greetings from Newport, Rhode Island! A little someone woke up bright and early this morning (I assume he was too excited to sleep!), so we were up and at ’em before the sunrise. Mal and I both wanted (needed?) coffee, so we got ourselves ready for the day. (Quinn thought the hairdryer was hilarious.) The […]

Alternate title: How to Behave at a Bachelorette Party When You’re Running a Marathon the Next Day Over the weekend, I drove down to Newport, Rhode Island for a friend’s bachelorette party.

    Good morning, friends! On Sunday, it rained all morning and afternoon, so our second day in Newport was pretty low-key. Breakfast Mal and I woke up starving for breakfast (I actually woke up at 3 AM and ate a container of yogurt because I was so hungry), so we headed out to Gary’s Handy Lunch […]

    Greetings from Newport, Rhode Island! Mal and I arrived in Newport late on Friday afternoon and his parents arrived a little while later. We had a low-key evening at home in the condo—ate dinner, played at least an hour of Candy Crush (Mal and my mother-in-law got me hooked), and then went to bed early. […]



    Good morning! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Mine was especially nice because I got to spend the majority of it with Mal’s family. His sister and her husband were in town from Seattle, so we did some of our favorite East coast things with them. On Saturday afternoon, […]
