Road Trippin’ – Rhode Island

We FINALLY had our first little family vacation just last weekend and it was so lovely. Short, sweet and absolutely wonderful!

We all piled in the car and drove north to visit my bestie, whom I hadn’t seen since my baby shower last September! Needless to say, this was her first time meeting mini me, so it was a pretty special time.

As far as car trips go, the little one really seemed to enjoy herself. Very little fussing and a whole lotta singing! We were (mostly) all smiles from the time we left, to the time we came back home. My only advice to mommas traveling with little ones is this – coffee. And music. But, mostly just coffee. Car rides are long for everyone but as long as you have the energy to sing The Wheels On The Bus several hundred times, you should be just fine! 😉

Seriously, though… It’s incredible how quickly a weekend can go by on an average weekend but when you are spending time with the ones you love – it zooms by. Take tons of pictures and give/get lots of hugs. I wouldn’t mind going back to snag a few extra from S. I miss those hugs already.

Here are some pics from our trip and visit to beautiful Newport, RI where we got to do a tour of the Breakers Mansion and town. Exquisite.

 

Thank you for more wonderful memories. I miss you. I love you.

p.s. I am making a vow that we don’t wait a full year in between visits. A girl needs time with her bestie. <3

  • Tomorrow, The Ostrich and Other Lost Things by Beth Hautala will finally be released and I couldn’t recommend this fantastic middle-grade book more. It’s been a fast favorite -  dealing with family, unconditional love and autism in a way I’ve not experienced before. It is beautiful and it reaches. 
But that’s an entirely different book, right? I picked up this beauty because I loved The Ostrich so much that I needed to find Beth’s first book. So, here is Waiting for Unicorns and you can take a guess at what I’ll be reading today!

  • I’m so in love with this “new” old desk. My reading nook has been replaced with a writing nook. I read anywhere and everywhere, so this is a welcomed change. Now I have a place to explore my own ideas.

  • After coming off a book that completely gutted me (but was brilliantly written) I might need some “fluff”. From what I’ve gathered, this book isn’t it. Apparently, I love to torment myself with stories that grab at my heart and soul. .
