Grey Sail Brewery

I was with a friend driving around Westerly, RI in hopes of finding something fun to do on a rainy day. We were driving down a side road when we saw some bistro lights in a yard. We both exclaimed how cute it was but kept driving because it just looked like someone's house. Then we noticed the Grey Sail sign and realized we had stumbled upon a brewery we had been talking about visiting for awhile.

What's in my Beach Bag?

I've become a pro at packing a beach bag in minutes. Living so close to the water and having summers off means lots of spur of the moment trips to the beach with friends and family.

Lately there has been no shortage of fun new restaurants opening in our area. One of my favorites has been MBAR, in Mystic. What's not to love about an old run down gas station turned super chic coffee and wine bar? I stopped in over the weekend for a quick fix of caffeine.

The Elms, Newport

Recently I spent a girls' day in Newport with some friends. After a brief drive down Bellevue Ave to check out some of the mansions, we decided to tour the Elms. I've been into several of the mansions but this one was a first for me. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and felt like we had gone back in time.

Wedding Cake Topper

I originally was hesitant about having a wedding cake topper. I always thought of the super traditional bride and groom on the top of the cake and I was never a huge fan of it. Originally I was planning on going with nothing at all or maybe a few flowers. But one day I was scrolling through instagram and found Parrott Design Studio and I fell in love with one of their designs.

Dinner Al Fresco

I love any reason to set up a nice dinner table, especially outdoors, so when a few of our friends were coming to visit from New York I seized the opportunity for an al fresco dinner on the deck.

Block Island

I absolutely love Block Island. It's one of my favorite places to visit in the summer. It's such a quintessential New England town with the classic hotels and ocean views.

Sunday Scaries

Sundays are such a conflicting day. The morning is usually spent feeling like it's still the weekend but then Sunday evening rolls around and the Sunday scaries set in. All those feelings and anxieties about the work week that I pushed away all weekend are bubbling back up. I've found a few things that have really helped me enjoy my weekend while also keeping my worries about the week lower.
