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!

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)!

fall fruit picking at tougas family farm

Hi everyone, hope you had a lovely fall weekend! I love fall even though I spend the vast majority of the season being sick - but being sick doesn't really stop me from doing all the fall things I love. Last week on Indigenous Peoples Day, Gerome and I went to Tougas Family Farm to go apple and pumpkin picking. It was a lot of fun and I probably ate my body weight in apples that day (as an attempt to stay healthy, of course). Keep reading to see photos from our fruit picking excursion, including details on what I wore plus some more casual fall outfit ideas if you want to look cute and not blend into the flannel-wearing masses at whatever farm you plan on visiting.

crane estate & summer scallops

Last month, Gerome and I visited Ipswich, MA to see The Crane Estate. It was the 125th Anniversary of The Trustees (they preserve historical sites and cultural landmarks in Massachusetts) so there was a ‘Home Sweet Home’ Open House at a number of beautiful Trustees properties during which admission was free. We chose to go to The Crane Estate because it was the most eye-catching of all the mansions that were holding open houses. Once we got to the property, we were not disappointed by what we saw. Keep reading to see photos from our visit to the Crane Estate (including what I wore and what we ate in Ipswich)!
