birthday in portland

Hi guys! It's taken me a while to get this post together, but I was a little too busy just basking in the memories of the trip and holding onto the feeling of it all to actually get off my butt and write a blog post. Basically, Gerome semi-surprised me with a trip to Portland for my 23rd birthday! I say semi-surprised because I'm a little shit who kind of spoiled the surprise by calling him to say good night two nights before my birthday and then asking him why he sounded so shady. He confessed that he was mildly freaking out trying to get a birthday trip together for me, which I thought was adorable. I was glad I called because he almost booked a hotel in Portland, Oregon instead of Portland, Maine, which was the Portland he intended on taking me to. It was really sweet of him and an honest and well-meaning mistake because Portland, OR has one of the boutique hotels from a hotel chain I really like. We ended up picking a hotel in Maine together and wrapped up planning the logistics of the trip at 4am the day we left for it. This post has just a few of our photos from the trip and my thoughts about the experience. I hope you enjoy reading this post!

april favorites

Hey guys, happy May! The year seems to be going by in a blur, so it feels really weird that I'm doing an April favorites when I still haven't gotten used to writing "2017" when filling in dates. I just turned 23 at the end of April, so I definitely treated myself to lots of things and experiences in an attempt to enjoy my last month of being 22 as much as possible. This month I want to blog way more than I did in April, so here's a favorites post to start the month off. I hope you enjoy it!

world's end

On Marathon Monday, Gerome and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Boston Marathon since it was such a beautiful spring day. We ended up driving to World's End, which is a gorgeous park and shoreline in Hingham, Massachusetts owned and maintained by The Trustees. Keep reading to see photos of our fun little day trip (my outfit details are also listed somewhere in the middle of this post if you're curious)!

march favorites

Hey y'all! It's April, which is usually my favorite month of the year since it's my birthday month :) I'm not sure how I feel about this April yet because the weather has been all over the place and I'm turning 23 this year which isn't particularly exciting in any way. Regardless - new month, new favorites post. I don't always do favorites posts since I'm not sure I have enough things I really really enjoy most months to warrant a whole favorites post. March happened to be a month that I did enjoy a fair amount of things, so I hope you enjoy reading about my favorites from last month!

spring break?

Hi y'all! It's been a month since I posted on here but I'm back again! Snowed in today because of winter storm Stella, so I finally got some time to finish up this long catch-up post. Nothing too crazy has happened in my life since I posted and much of the past month has been spent sick in bed (the weather has been all over the place and really messing with my fragile immune system), but I did want to show you guys what happened around the time of my trip to Philadelphia with Gerome. I hope you all stay safe and warm today and also enjoy this post!
