Thanksgiving in the Midwest

  For Thanksgiving I took my first trip back to my hometown. After almost 6 months of living in New Jersey I flew back to Wisconsin to see my family. My trip was about 48 hours in my hometown in Wisconsin and a little less than 48 hours in Minnesota visiting relatives. The whole trip was based around…

Midwest in the East Coast

Fall in the East Coast is different but similar to fall in the Midwest, and I love fall.  I spent this gorgeous fall weekend with my spectacular friend Emily! We met in college and connected through the Society of Women Engineers. There is no doubt the memories we made will last a lifetime and this weekend we were able to…

Boston – HOCR

Last weekend Marla and I (Marla is my dog I recently adopted!) ventured to Boston, Massachusetts. It was our first weekend outing as a tiny family of two. We traveled all the way to Boston from New Jersey to attend Head of the Charles and to see some college/crew friends who were also attending the regatta. On…

Girls Weekend – NYC

Two weekends ago my wonderful mother, two aunts, cousin, and myself explored NYC for an extended weekend. For the 5 of us it was Déjà vu. 7 years ago, almost to the weekend, the same group flew out to New York to explore. The company was wonderful and that didn’t change one bit, but the experience and…

Dusk at Dawn

After working a night shift I decided to drive to the shore and catch the sunrise. I mean why not? I already worked for 12 hours, so what’s an extra hour or two before I slept. So as I drove to Asbury Park I started to notice the overcast and fog. If you’re curious, overcast and fog does not mix…

Labor Day 2015

Labor day 2015 was spent with my roomie exploring a new beach. We went to Sandy Hook for most of the day and thoroughly enjoyed the ocean and the hot sun. After becoming exhausted from doing basically nothing, we went over to a coworkers and enjoyed the warm night, some delightful food, and champagne. This…

Virginia

I spent a short but very enjoyable weekend in Virginia. My aunt and I visited Alexandria, my old stomping grounds, and we thoroughly enjoyed the people and dog watching.  

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”  – Oscar WIlde This past weekend was truly a weekend to remember. My beautiful cousin Lizzy was able to fly out to the east coast and we traversed around New York and New Jersey.  In New York we stayed in Greenwich Village and Brooklyn….

Peach Festival

Sunday’s are for relaxing and preparing for the upcoming week. No better way to do that than at a peach festival in Chester, NJ. I fit right in with the hoards of kids enjoying the animals, peach desserts, and pick your own fruit.
