new england jaunts.

Phew! How is it Monday already!? My {long} weekend went all too quickly... I took a vacation day on Friday to enjoy the day with our dear friends, the {d}'s, who made the trip from Denver all the way to New England! We went with them to California earlier this year, so it was fabulous to be reunited again :) {jd}, {rd} and I tooled around Boston a bit on Friday afternoon before hitting the Harpoon Brewery on our way back down to Providence. {cv} joined us after work on Federal Hill for some true Italian fare, including tasty cannolis. We ended the night with some wine from our California trip back at the apartment--a perfect end to a fantastic day!


On Saturday, we made our way down to Newport and finally toured The Breakers. I love history, so I was delighted to see a little BIG glimpse into the Gilded Age close to home. I couldn't believe the incredible copper-filled kitchen! A few of the rooms even transported {cv} and I back to Versailles, one of our favorite stops on our honeymoon. After our tour, we enjoyed a quintessential New England meal at The Black Pearl. Our night ended much like the nights we had in North Carolina with the {d}'s...playing board games with lots of laughter involved. Sunday was a bit more low-key, but our visit ended with a yummy dinner at our apartment before they had to head to Boston for the night. All of these fun little New England jaunts got me thinking about how much more for us to discover here! It also raised this question:


Be sure to check out other fun instagram-filled posts at a {little} dash of ash today :) By the way, you can find me on instagram here! I know I'm already looking forward to next weekend--and our next visit with the {d}'s. {I'm also dreaming of a way to move Denver closer to Providence! sigh.}


P.S. My cobalt arm party was totally J.Crew. I love love love my Timex Traveler watch and its interchangeable straps! 
{The bracelets were from earlier this summer and they're no longer available at J.Crew. BOO!}

  14. How fun! We have a lot going on in LA but our history is so much "newer" that yours on the East Coast. I'd love to move back there one day...but then again I'm used to winters in the 50s so I don't know if I could deal with the snow :)
