    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 […]

    Good morning, friends! On Sunday, it rained all morning and afternoon, so our second day in Newport was pretty low-key.

    Tucker’s Bistro

    October 4, 2009


    Last night, my hubby, in-laws, and I had dinner at Tucker’s Bistro in Newport.

From the outside, Tucker’s looked adorable with lots of hanging white lights, vibrant colors, and charming flower boxes. Inside, […]
