A Lot O’ Gelato at Mia Chef Gelateria

I’m usually pretty good at thinking of gifts for Matt. I’ve gotten him Yankee tickets and concert tickets for his birthday, a messenger bag for his new job, and a Patagonia jacket and couple’s massage last Christmas (okay, the couple’s massage clearly benefited me as well, but you get the gist). But this year for…

Floridian Thanksgiving: Part 3

Welcome to the third and final installment of what I’m sure is a fiercely captivating trilogy telling the tale of my Floridian adventures. One of my new favorite spots down there is Benny’s On the Beach in Lake Worth – big thanks to Matt’s mom for introducing it to us. Benny’s is, unsurprisingly, on the…

Okay, well we didn’t exactly conquer them, but we did drive all the way up there from my parents’ house in New Jersey. Beyond that, we pretty much just stopped the car every so often once we…

My Favorite Places: Alstede Farms

Ever since I was in high school, one of my favorite places has been Alstede Farms, located in Chester, NJ. My friends and I would go to Alstede for the vast and expansive apple orchards and pumpkin patches — not to mention their INCREDIBLE apple cider doughnuts. Around this time last year, I started getting…
