We are the grandchildren of the witches you could not hang. I’m about to show my nerdy side here, so brace yourself: I am fascinated by the Salem Witch Trials. The history is just… well, it’s hard to believe that it happened. I’ve been intrigued since I was a young girl when my mother took me to…… Continue reading Daycation: Exploring the History of Salem, Massachusetts
Arikok National Park Recap and Review
As promised, a recap and review of Arikok National Park! This was definitely our most adventurous day on our honeymoon, but it was definitely a great time and so worth putting relaxing on hold!

Honeymooning In Aruba, Days 2 & 3
Do we have to go home? I keep asking E if we can just ditch our real lives and be real life pirates of the Caribbean. I mean, hello, he did vow to support me in whatever I decide to do with my life, and being a pirate would be perfect, right? Right?? All you…… Continue reading Honeymooning In Aruba, Days 2 & 3
We arrived in Aruba yesterday! And I’m taking advantage of the fact that my handsome husband likes to sleep in to write a post about it. 😉 Before we left I was having major, major anxiety. Can you blame me? Not only is anxiety before travel somewhat normal for me (see Wanderlusting: Pre-Trip Anxiety), it was…… Continue reading Hello, Aruba!
Hidden Gem: Beavertail State Park, Jamestown, Rhode Island
Recently, my baby sister moved into a gorgeous apartment located in Rhode Island. I was finally able to visit her today, so my husband and I hopped in the car early enough to beat Cape Cod traffic and got to her (after a really confusing GPS navigation) about two hours later. She gave us a…… Continue reading Hidden Gem: Beavertail State Park, Jamestown, Rhode Island

The Happy Ending I’m Working On
I’m about to get raw with you, so bear with me. As many of you know, I was in a serious accident in January. It rocked my world and not in a good way.

Snickers, Strawberries and Cookie Dough, Oh My!: Adventures in Ice Cream Making (recipes, too!)
Who doesn’t like ice cream? Ice cream is one of those foods that unite everyone, like pizza- you can’t not like some sort of variation of it.

A Sudden and Dramatic Goodbye: My Emergency in Costa Rica
Costa Rica was beautiful, for the whole two days I was there. On Monday I was involved in a jet ski accident. No one saw it happen and I have no memory of it, but my best guess is that I was too close to shore when a wave crested, knocking me on the sand…… Continue reading A Sudden and Dramatic Goodbye: My Emergency in Costa Rica
Hello, Costa Rica!
Pura vida! I arrived in Costa Rica Saturday evening after a long journey- I woke up from a couple hours sleep at my father’s house on my hard old mattress (seriously, the thing belonged to my great aunt when she was a girl living in the house). My loving fiancé drove us to the Boston…… Continue reading Hello, Costa Rica!
