For the final trip on the ECLT, we headed to Ipswich, MA, about 30 miles north of Boston, where our friend Matt has a summer home in the small, tight-knit community of Little Neck Island. Since this home is where he met the love of his life, Leslie, that's where they decided to get married! Isn't that so romantic?
We were in Ipswich/Little Neck for 6 days where we spent some time sunning (once the sun...

Let me tell you a little not-so-secret about my time in Boston. I hated it. I was miserable. I barely had any friends, I had just ended a 4 year relationship, and although I liked my job, I worked long hours but made barely enough money to live in the expensive city. I was not happy. Coming into to Boston as a young professional, not a student, made it really hard to meet people. Most (and I stress, most...

Before heading out to Ipswich for the second wedding of the ECLT, The Hub and I made a pit stop in Providence. As any map will tell you, Providence is not exactly on the way from Burlington to Ipswich, so many friends were confused as to why we were going there. Well, we simply had to. You see, Rhode Island was the 4th to last state that The Hub had to visit before he can say he's been to all 50. We were...

After a wet but lovely day in Burlington during the ECLT, Tessa and I were ready for a glass, er, bottle of wine at The Farmhouse. We chatted up the bartender and he recommended a local choice, a 2010 Marquette wine from Vermont's own Shelburne Vineyard. You all know what a wine snob I am, so I was a little hesitant. But our bartender friend really sold it on me. Besides, when in Rome...

After the epicness of Albany, The Hub and I along with our friends David & Tessa, decided to head up to Burlington, VT for the night. Because, why not?! Burlington is a really cool town and I'd actually been there a few times in a past life when Vermont was part of my sales territory, but I'd never really set out to properly explore it like a tourist. So we drove the few hours up to Essex, NY and took the...

Our first stop on the East Coast Love Tour was to Albany/East Greenbush, NY for Shawn and Kate's wedding. It was my first time in upstate NY, and I must say, I quite enjoyed it! You can tell that the city of Albany was once bumpin', but now it's a bit more quiet. It's true, there are some unsavory areas, but for the most part it's college-y, cute, and full of beautiful historic buildings. Here are some of...

This is just a quick post to let you all know that I'm alive! Sorry that you haven't heard from me sooner, but I'm sad to report that my trusty ThinkPad has finally bit the dust. Yes, I am computerless and writing this post from our old, ancient, dinosaur of a Mac which I can't use to upload pictures or watch Slingbox. But I can type and go on Facebook, so I guess I'm surviving. I'm hoping to get a new PC...
