Anniversary trip


Well hello my friends. I have been away too long. First I went away with Leao for our anniversary and then I went on a girl’s weekend with my sister. Then this past weekend, I spent with my niece and nephew that are visiting from Florida.  So I am grateful for all the fun but happy to be home again.  So now, I am trying to find a routine. The boys have one week of camp left and then they spend the month of August with me. So I have compiled a list of things I want to do with them and also coming up with a good routine so I can sqeeze in a few hours of work each day. I will let you know how that

Anyway, I thought I would share a few pictures from our anniversary trip to Martha’s Vineyard. We stayed for 4 days and the weather was perfect with warm temperatures with an amazing sea breeze.  We rented a Jeep and explored the island. fishing-villageGrowing up I used to spend time staying with family friends in Oak Bluffs but never really explored the whole island. But this time, we were able to take our time and find new places.  We went to visit the oldest fishing village on the island, we checked out several beaches.

First the delivery trucks would slowly arrive, then you would see people walking their dogs and slowly you would see the shop owners flipping over their signs from closed to open.

We had fun trying different places each night for dinner.  It was fun being able to sit and have a meal that we could have conversation without having to fuss with the boys.

sconeWe went to a great dinner for breakfast and if you ignore the big hunk of butter on the side, this homemade blueberry scone rocked my world. It was so amazing, I wanted to order one to go.

I am going to make a mini album of our adventure and will share when I complete it.

Have a blessed day!
