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

Spring, where are you?

At this point I have given up on spring arriving to Boston anytime soon.  As I write this, I have over 6 inches of snow outside and my little street has yet to see a snow plow, so we are essentially stuck inside.  This could’ve been seen as a fun adventure, but it’s probably the 10th time this winter we have been quite literally snowed in! I have been spending my days dreaming about the sun and trying to remember what it feels like!   I know I can’t complain too much—we haven’t lost any power, I live very close to a grocery store, and I can get my Town & Country and Lucky magazines via my iPad.  But a girl needs some sun!


The top photo was taken a few years ago in Rome’s Villa Borghese Park where my husband (boyfriend at the time!) and I rented bicycles for the afternoon.  It was so much fun!  The 2nd photo is from Florence.  What a beautiful city.  Just remember to pre-purchase your tickets to the Uffizi! It was the one museum that we forgot to buy tickets to ahead of time and we had to wait in line for nearly four hours to get in.  But, it was so worth it to see the Birth of Venus!

Let’s hope that this is our last snowstorm and that spring is on its way soon!
