Upcoming Trip to Newport, Rhode Island

Hello everyone! I am planning a trip to Newport, Rhode Island with one of my friends (the birthday girl mentioned in this post). We already booked our hotel and we are staying for 3 days and 2 nights. We will be doing the mansion tour, the Cliff Walk,  some shopping downtown, glassblowing, and checking out some of the beaches. If anyone has any recommendations of where to go and what to see that I haven’t mentioned, let me know. And if you are interested in going someday and really want to know more about an activity or building/restaurant in Newport, let me know and I will try to take pictures and write about that experience for you. 🙂

Pray For Belgium

Please pray for Belgium on this very hard day. I know it’s not easy to lose a loved one, a friend, a sibling, or a relative, but know that the person will always be with you and that the love they have for you is indefinite. Extending the love with open arms from the Newtown/Sandy Hook community ♥

Winter Blues on the Second Day of Spring

So it’s March 21st and it snowed! The past few weeks have been a wonderful 55 degrees, and then this happened. I took this picture on my way to work this morning in disbelief, but I guess that should be typical as the weather is usually crazy in Connecticut during March but as the saying says, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. What’s the weather like in your area?

I took this photo a few years ago in Hastings-on-Hudson in New York when I was visiting my grandma. I went on a walking trail and I saw this gorgeous wooden archway leading up to a house in the woods. It sort of looks enchanting, like it could transport you to another world (maybe Narnia??)

I took this photo from the balcony of my hotel room at Grotto Bay Beach Hotel in Bermuda. The sunsets in Bermuda were so incredible and unlike any sunset I have seen before. I think it makes it extra special with the water right there and the light bouncing off it.

An Idiot’s Guide to Hiking the Inca Trail

This is a great, in-depth guide to hiking the Inca trail if anyone was interested in going. I’m hoping if everything works out, that I can visit Machu Picchu during January of next year!

I took this photo in Horseshoe Bay Beach in Bermuda, and this is one of my favorite photos I took there. I think it really shows off the beautiful turquoise color of the water, as well as the pink sand that this beach is famous for.
