Plum Island

Plum_Island (1)

I can’t believe tomorrow it will May! This past weekend we took our first walk along the beach on Plum Island. It seems so surreal that spring is finally here. Sure the sand was a little chilly, but it felt fantastic to be outside without snowboots and a puffer coat. And aren’t the clouds amazing! I’d like to think the horrible winter was worth it, but I won’t lie there were moments I didn’t think this day would come! For months we battled mounds and mounds of snow. Our snowblower died mid-winter and mid-storm. There were weeks where I barely left my house and my main motivation for shoveling my front steps were out of concern for my postman more than anything else.

But spring is here! We saw about 10 other couples walking along on the chilly sand and met about 15 furry friends who were so excited to frolic in what I can only imagine were ice cold New England waters!


I have a busy spring ahead of me, so I don’t want to rush it too fast to summer! What are you looking forward to most this spring?  Let me know in the comments below! xx

Newburyport Brewing Co.

One of the really cool things about living in Newburyport is the craft micro-brewery right around the corner from our house. Now I am not a huge fan of beer, but the Newburyport Belgian White has been a staple in our house ever since we took a brewery tour and had a chance to try out some of their offerings.

Tours of the facilities are on Saturdays at 5pm and you can also catch local bands playing in the tasting room.  Word on the street is that on Thursdays a taco truck parks outside so you can have the best of both worlds!
