Last Monday I decided to try out Instagram’s new ‘ask me anything feature’ and while I wasn’t sure what type of questions I’d get, or if I’d get any, I was very surprised when I saw a bunch of blogging related questions roll in. I was shocked but thrilled because blogging means so much to me and…

The Perfect Gift For Dad

July 13th, 2018
Location  •   Connecticut

Finding a gift for my Dad’s birthday is something I struggle with year after year and I know I’m not alone. I mean finding a gift for the guy that literally has it all, can seem impossible. Now, normally I usually stick to what I know, purchasing him a preppy outfit and a Vineyard Vines bathing suit to boot, but not this year! This year I decided to switch things up when I received an email from Blink

Blueberry Picking in New England

July 11th, 2018
Location  •   South Glastonbury, CT

 

Blueberry picking is a longstanding summer tradition for my family and I; and to be honest, nothing is more rewarding than grabbing an empty pail and heading into the fields. On this particular day, the Rose’s Berry Farm crew was kind enough to let me squeeze in some last minute scavaging time for ripe berries before shutting down for the afternoon, due to heat. I climbed the blueberry hill with Tessie until we came upon the plumpest and fullest blueberry bushes we could find.

Now while raspberries are my official favorite summer berry, blueberries are…

Location  •   Old Saybrook

First dates can really put your emotions through the wringer, and it’s important to be prepared for anything and everything. Okay, chances are you’ll feel excited, nervous, stressed out and exhilarated; but in today’s world thinking of where to go or what to eat can seem almost as daunting as getting asked out on a date, which is why I had to pipe in and ease those first date jitters. Dating can be nerve-wracking, but finding the perfect date night activity doesn’t have to be, which…

It’s summertime in New England which means it’s time to unbutton the covers on our boats and induldge in the best dockable resturants Connecticut has to offer.

Exploring Bowen’s Wharf

June 25th, 2018
Location  •   Bowen's Wharf, RI

Nothing is more soothing and exciting than the hustle and bustle of Bowen’s Wharf come summertime. In fact, if you asked me to describe Newport, Rhode Island to you, the first thing that comes to my mind is the historic wharves and all they have to offer. So, I was ecstatic when Tessa and I had enough time on our previous trip to Newport, to clock out early and enjoy a leisurely ‘linner’ at Bowen’s Wharf.
