decordova museum

June 4, 2013

a little escape from the city can be so welcome – and often quite needed. a few weeks ago, we went to the decordova sculpture park and museum outside of boston. it was a beautiful, crisp day and it was so refreshing to wander the gardens while looking around at the interesting art. plus, dogs […]

the fells

June 13, 2012

there is something so soothing about being in the woods with no one around. i grew up in a somewhat rural town – with lots of space to run and imagine – and plenty of conservation land. going into the woods is always a reminder of my childhood – and a very welcomed one. we […]

these faces

January 10, 2012

it’s a new year. and i couldn’t have greeted 2012 with a larger smile. i am so excited for the year that lies ahead – and all of the new possibilities it holds. but, it is also the middle of january. the sun goes down at a little past 4pm. i’ve been having some difficulty […]

two thousand and eleven

December 30, 2011

2011 was a year of many ups and downs. since i quit my day job back in 2010, i’ve started a few exciting new projects, spent a lot of time reflecting on the little things, and have spent a year in mourning. we’ve also spent a lot more time at home this year, something i […]

the beach in october.

October 12, 2011

since we live a mere fifteen minutes walking distance from the beach (best thing ever), i tend to go often. all year long. i sort of love the beach when it is windy and cold and deserted (evidenced here, here, and here). there’s something so special about having it all to myself. well, this past […]

the park.

October 11, 2011

days like this are why i love new england. sure, our weather can be crazy and sporadic, but summer-like days in fall are pretty amazing. at the end of our street there is a big hill with a big old park on top. the views are incredible (especially by starlight) and the grass is so […]

where the heart is.

October 6, 2011

you know the old saying, home is where the heart is? well, it’s never been more true. boston, the city that i was born into and that has been like a good friend all along, i love you. this is the place where i gracefully stumbled into adulthood, where i fell in love, where the […]

afternoon at the orchard.

September 29, 2011

apple picking is one of my favorite things to do. no surprise that fall is my favorite time of year. going to a (somewhat) empty orchard for an afternoon of watching weber chase rabbits, biting into a crisp apple just moments after pulling it off a tree, coming across beautiful outlooks and just enjoying a […]

a surprise getaway.

August 22, 2011

this past friday was my birthday, and so the mr. planned a very special surprise weekend. we have a thing for birthdays and surprises. on friday afternoon, we hopped in the car (weber, too) and headed to rhode island. we stopped in newport and then continued along to block island. it was such a sweet […]

dog days of summer.

July 20, 2011

little webby (well, not so little anymore) is a summer dog at heart. he may love the snow, but nothing is better than the water and sunshine. i love summer, but i don’t think it can compare to weber’s love of chasing after his friends, swimming and exhaustion that comes from the glorious summer heat.
