Hoboken Summer Staycation

I had been talking for a while about doing a weekend staycation in Hoboken at the W hotel and my wonderful boyfriend, Matt, decided to surprise me with a corner suite for our one year anniversary.

Our Delray Vacay: Part 5

Our time in Delray Beach was definitely over far too quickly. That Monday was our last day, and we committed ourselves to waking up early (7:30am, but hey, that’s early for vacation) and getting to the beach to beat the heat. Sitting on the beach with Matt that morning was such a peaceful, soothing experience. It…

(Admittedly, I’ve been slacking when it comes to posting here in general, too.) So, to get back in the swing, I will be posting…

A Weekend in D.C.

This past weekend, my boyfriend, Matt, and I took a trip to visit one of my best friends and a few of his buddies in D.C. We were typical tourists on our five mile trek around the monuments, but ended up getting some great photos (and burning some serious calories). We totally lucked out with the weather,…
