We had great four days in San Diego with college friends. We flew out to attend a wedding at Orfila Vineyards & Winery in Escondido. It was a beautiful wedding for an awesome couple, and we couldn’t have had a better time.
Every summer, we take a big family vacation to a beautiful, beachy place in New England. Sometimes we go to Martha’s Vineyard, other times Cape Cod, and, also, Block Island. Last week, I made my second trip to Block Island, and, really, just had the best time.
I have to say that when I first arrived at Block Island, I was in love. It is a very small island, but offers a lot. When you first get off the ferry, you are right in the heart of the commercial area. There are several hotels, bed and breakfasts, cute shops, restaurants, etc. You almost don’t know where to start! Then, as you move away from the commercial area, you really discover the beauty of the island.
Below I have listed out some great places to eat, drink, shop, and play.
This past weekend, we spent time with family and friends on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. It was the beautiful, relaxing, laid-back weekend we so desperately needed! I rented a great house right on the lake. It had a dock, small beach, and two decks – it was perfect for us. The view from the second floor was really awesome, because it looked like we were just floating on water.
We spent the whole weekend at the house grilling, having drinks, and at night, we even had a small fire on the beach complete with s’mores. This was definitely a mini vacation that needs to be repeated!
This dress was perfect for the lake, because it is so simple and comfortable. And, I really love the pattern. The blues and greens are so pretty, and they even match the landscape. I’ll definitely be wearing this all summer long, especially on those cool, casual nights.
We recently attended an absolutely stunning wedding at The Sagamore on Lake George. Our friends, who were married, visit their family lake home here often, and have always said the best things about it. We had never been before, but we certainly want to go back!
The Sagamore is a true resort with many activities, dining options, and places to stay. For the wedding, we stayed in The Lodges, but, next time, I definitely want to stay in the Historic Hotel. The views of the lake were breathtaking – the perfect background for any photo. The grounds we immaculate and not overdone. There were many people sitting outside in Adirondack chairs enjoying drinks with a view. Something I want to be doing there again sometime soon.
I grew up on the Jersey Shore, so I’ve always been a steadfast beach person, but I am starting to expand my horizons. This was first of two lake trips I will be taking this month. In a couple weeks, we are headed to Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire with about 15 friends and family to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. Stay tuned!
