Going on vacation is something we can pretty much all agree is awesome. No responsibilities, no worries, good food, good times, and that just general all-around good feeling. The only problem is coming home. While you can kind of recreate the no responsibilities by taking time off and having a staycation and you can kind of recreate…… Continue reading The Vacation Hack I Wish Someone Had Told Me
Meatless Monday: Spanakopita Triangles!
Χαίρετε! Hello! I’m back after my mini-hiatus. I hope you all had a lovely week- I know I sure did! My parents made this year extra special by eating Thanksgiving dinner together for the first time since they divorced when I was a kid. It was so nice to have my entire family together with…… Continue reading Meatless Monday: Spanakopita Triangles!
I love elephants. That’s why I’ll never ride one.
Elephants are my favorite animals. I’m obsessed. I have shirts with elephants, pants, posters, notebooks, you name it. Early in our dating chapter, my husband changed his background on his computer to an elephant just to make me smile- and he hasn’t changed it back yet. When I find another elephant lover it becomes a…… Continue reading I love elephants. That’s why I’ll never ride one.

Daycation: Exploring the History of Salem, Massachusetts
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

Gratitude Journal: Honeymoon Edition
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know I’m big on gratitude! I thought I would take some time and reflect on this trip and all the ways I’m grateful for it (while my husband procrastinates showering and probably eventually ends up showering): The fact that we’re here. Look, I survived an international…… Continue reading Gratitude Journal: Honeymoon Edition
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
