Sailing Heals for Cancer Patients in Manchester-By-The-Sea, Massachusetts

I’m so happy to welcome July with open arms after a pretty slow June came and went very quietly. I’ll be traveling a bit more this month and will surely have some exciting stories to share later on! On the first of the month, the whole family and I took a very scenic drive up to Manchester-By-The-Sea, Massachusetts. It’s about an hour outside of Boston on the north shore. We were there for Sailing Heals, an…

Sunday Brunch: The Elephant Walk Boston, Massachusetts

This post was last updated June 24, 2017 to reflect minor menu changes. A big thank you to Blog & Tweet Boston who invited me.  Sunday’s are for late mornings, drinking your entire coffee before it gets cold and brunch becomes the most important meal of the day. In Boston’s South End, Sunday’s can be quite hectic! SOWA Market is in full swing and considering it’s foodie central and the hottest place to be over…

Sip & Sail On Charles River: Cambridge, Massachusetts

If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram, you know some weeks ago our amazing friends at CambridgeSide Galleria and Charles Riverboat Company took me and a bunch of our Boston blogger friends for a little mid-week “Sip & Sail” (ahem, booze cruise, let’s be honest) on the Charles River. Can you imagine 40 young bloggers all on a boat together?? I’ve never seen so many selfies happening at once haha. It was a…

Little Black Book: 6 Places For Foodies In New Orleans, Louisiana

What Paris is for lovers, New Orleans is for foodies. There is no better place to indulge than New Orleans! Fried catfish and beans? Yes, please! Crawfish beignets? Don’t mind if I do. And every time I’m there my pledge to eat “healthy” goes to pits. It’s for good reason. Promise. It’s the only time I don’t even feel the least bit guilty about it. Where else can you get this stuff!? My father has…

Experience Louisiana: Whitney Slave Plantation

Last month during our Louisiana trip we spent an afternoon about an hour outside of New Orleans to experience a slave plantation in Wallace, Louisiana. The Whitney Plantation was built by African slaves and opened up as a museum a couple years ago to share the lives and stories of the slaves who were on the plantation and throughout the South. It was a very moving experience and one of the first times I have…

Sunny St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans Sightseeing

One of my favorite things to do in New Orleans on a good day is to escape the craziness of the French Quarter, go uptown and stroll along St. Charles Avenue. Also known as “The Jewel of America’s Grand Avenues”.  I highly recommend it to those who really want to visit New Orleans but don’t want to get in all the crazy party happenings that they think the city only has to offer. A QUIETER…

Photo Diary: New Orleans French Quarter

“There are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. There’s a thousand different angles at any moment. At any time you could run into a ritual honoring some vaguely known queen. Bluebloods, titled persons like crazy drunks, lean weakly against the walls and drag themselves through the gutter. Even they seem to have insights you might want to listen to. No action seems inappropriate here. The city is one very…

New Orleans Jazz Fest 2017 Diary + Playlist

New Orleans…Where do I even begin? It’s my original hometown although I’ve grown up and spent enough years in New England that I consider myself a New Englander as well. When somebody asks where I’m from I tend to switch back and forth depending on the conversation. There is no doubt I have a connection with this city though. Some of my first solid meals were gumbo, red beans, and jambalaya. I remember Hack, one…
