Newport & Gavin is One Month!

This past weekend, we did our annual Newport, Rhode Island trip & celebrated Gavin’s one month birthday!  It was a great weekend full of shopping, New England seafood (such as lobster grilled cheese & burger topped with lobster meat!) beautiful sunsets, and catching up with family.

Newport Getaway

I am very excited for a long weekend in Newport, RI with my family.  It is a much-needed getaway to take a break from the hustle and bustle of my career, moving into a news house, a break from the kids (my pup Zoey and kitty Jingles), and just a weekend of relaxation and fun.  Newport is extra special to me because of a few reasons.  It was me and Ryan’s first weekend trip together when we first met.  We had blast looking at the beautiful Newport mansions, checking out the local Blues Cafe and just admiring the historical town.  Also, my uncle has a time share there and he passed away this year.  Inviting the entire family to Newport to stay in his time share was a tradition for us and this year, we are dedicating this trip to him. ❤

Below are some of my weekend getaway necessities and some pics from Newport over the past couple trips! I recommend lots of sunscreen to keep that beautiful skin protected, a cross body bag so you can have your hands free while you stroll the area, and of course, very comfortable, cute sandals!
