Postcards from the Netherlands

Over February break, Emily and I traveled to the Netherlands with my grandma, my great aunt, and my cousin to visit our family who lives over there. This trip was long overdue and well worth the extended plane ride and jet lag (which was way worse on the way back, might I add). We had made it a goal for the trip to balance family time with the chance to explore locally and I found…

3 Great New Hampshire Hikes (Outside of the White Mountains)

While we love being a two hour drive from the White Mountains (and Franconia National Forest) there are some days we just don’t want to make the drive. Recently, we spent some time looking more locally, especially when Cody was a bit younger, for trails that were on the shorter side but well worth the effort up the mountain. I’ve listed our three favorite below with everything you need to know about getting there, parking,…

A Day Trip in Southern New Hampshire

Ryan and I had a free weekend and decided we wanted to venture out and explore a part of New Hampshire we hadn’t before. We’ve been talking a lot lately about seeing more of the small towns around us and enjoying what our beautiful state has to offer. Our trip to Peterborough provided a lovely small town experience and an adventure into the great outdoors. We took Cody on his first hike in 85 degree…

A Guide to Hiking Glacier National Park

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write this blog post, but in my defense, I started a new school year just a day after this trip ended. Talk about a quick turn around! Ryan’s family and I flew out to Montana at the end of the summer to spend a week just outside of Glacier National Park. It was an incredible trip filled with great hikes, epic views, terrifying roadways, and Air…

A Weekend Getaway in Maine

This past weekend Ryan and I ventured out of New Hampshire, which we hadn’t done in what felt like forever, for a true vacation weekend getaway. We drove five hours north to Maine where I had a lot planned for us. I wanted to share some of the highlights on my blog in case you’re considering a trip anytime soon! (Note: at this time, residents of the following states are free from any travel restrictions…

A Guide to Hiking Acadia National Park

I planned a lot for our trip to Acadia National Park and I mean a lot. For heaven’s sake, we were only going to be there two days- but I wanted to make sure I had everything handled. No surprises (cause that always works!) When planning our weekend getaway to Bar Harbor, we knew we wanted to hike Acadia. We chose to do a Saturday to Monday trip to try to avoid some of the…

Postcards from Wachusett

Yesterday my friends and I took full advantage of our short “winter break” and drove up to Wachusett Mountain for a day of skiing. It was the first time we’d had the opportunity to all ski together and we had a blast. We’d been saying for years that we had to do it and I’m really glad we finally did. I hadn’t been skiing at Wachusett since I was a kid and I had forgotten…

Postcards from Portsmouth

Last weekend I took a quick trip up to New Hampshire to visit my childhood bestie Mackay. We grew up in Portsmouth, RI and ironically enough, she’s ended up in another Portsmouth area which is just as, if not more, beautiful than our hometown. This is the second trip I’ve taken to Portsmouth and every time I’m there I can’t help thinking about the next time I can make it back (mostly for the company,…

Newport Highlight: MEND Yoga

A lot of my friends have already heard my spiel about MEND but today I’m putting it here on the blog and shouting it to the people in the back. I LOVE THIS PLACE. This new series on the blog, Newport Highlights, will do just that- highlight locations in Newport I think deserve the attention. I’m starting with somewhere I spend a good majority of my time: the studio at MEND. Back in November I…

Postcards from Chelsea

Ryan and I spent this past weekend up in Vermont with his dad, enjoying lots of fresh fallen powder. We had both been itching to get up north, especially because the weather in RI has been so lame this winter. There’s nothing like a brisk cold morning and a blanket of snow outside. One of my favorite things about Ryan’s parent’s house in Vermont is the quiet. You feel like there’s nothing and no one…
