NY Trip, Summer in Boston, Celebrating Life of a Friend
Life has been a little crazy lately. We traveled to NY to celebrate the engagement of two friends and had a blast. We’ve been enjoying summers in Boston and the fresh, delicious seafood that New England has to offer. I think it’s time I do a post on my favorite spots in Boston! We tried Venezia and it was AMAZING. Awesome food, great service.
We’ve been trying to grieve the sudden loss of a great friend of ours and celebrate his life the best we can. It’s hard to post business-as-usual when something so tragic hits our lives. It’s been a really hard week and we are trying to hold up the best we can. A reminder to love fiercely, and be so so kind- every single day. Tell those important to you that you love them. Life is too short and can be so unfair. I’ve been grateful for your kind words over on my Instagram post last week. Also a reminder that sometimes you see the best of people of social media and think their lives are perfect. Trust me, nobody’s life is perfect. Always a good thing to remember when scrolling through your feeds. As always, thank you for being the absolute best. This community is truly amazing.

One Year of Marriage!
We celebrated one whole year of being married with a lovely dinner at Capital Grille. I mean, they went above and beyond. Rose petals on the table, champagne to start, a dessert platter. It was so so nice. Now we’re off to Nashville for more celebrations! Thanks to all of your recommendations on Facebook we are jam-packed. Nashville travel guide coming SOON.
