My husband and I leave on our honeymoon tonight! We will be spending a week and a half in Oranjestad, Aruba, and I can’t wait! I’m very much on the fence about posting to my blog while we’re gone. Instagram, too. If the opportunity presents itself I might (I AM a travel blogger after all)…… Continue reading TTFN, Ta Ta For Now!
Tropical Vacation Packing Essentials
I can’t believe I’m able to say this, but WE’RE GOING ON OUR HONEYMOON THIS WEEK! For those of you who don’t know, I wanted to go on a honeymoon way more than I desired to host a party (aka, a wedding). I asked my husband a thousand times if we could just elope and…… Continue reading Tropical Vacation Packing Essentials
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
Daycation: Woods Hole
Today my husband and I had a miraculous day off together! It happens once in a blue moon and we decided to take advantage. We decided to take a day trip down to Woods Hole, Massachusetts- from where we live we could make the trip while avoiding highways and Cape traffic. We also knew that…… Continue reading Daycation: Woods Hole

How To Come Home From an International Vacation First…… Continue reading How To Come Home From an International Vacation
How To Travel When Your Resources Are Limited
Just go. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: you don’t need a lot of time or money to travel. All you need to do is walk out your front door and go. You could make it as far as down the block and still be traveling. A new cafe, a new…… Continue reading How To Travel When Your Resources Are Limited
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. Not only did it happen to begin with, it happened while I was living out my lifelong dream of traveling. I’ve…… Continue reading The Happy Ending I’m Working On
We’re Married!/Our Minimoon in Vermont
Last weekend I was lucky enough to marry my best friend! Our day was absolutely incredible, surrounded by so much love. Even though our trolley broke down and I was a little late getting to the venue, everything else went off without a hitch. The wedding only started just six minutes late, and it wasn’t…… Continue reading We’re Married!/Our Minimoon in Vermont
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!
