Why You NEED to take a Stay-cation During COVID

I JUST GOT BACK FROM VACATION!!! No, I didn’t go anywhere and yes, I work from home running this blog, so why would “I” need to take a stay-cation? I’m writing this because I realized that many people aren’t used to working from home and may even feel bad for asking for time off to hang out at their homes, but it’s essential that you do this even if you’re working from home and even if your vacation time will be spent at home. Keep reading to find out why.

The Minuteman Bike Path is a Must See for Fall

Massachusetts is absolutely gorgeous during the Fall. We have tons of trees around here and they all turn beautiful colors of orange, reds, and yellows. The air has a cool crisp feeling to it, and smoke from chimneys just confirms that Fall is here. However, if you’re looking for a different place than Boston to take some gorgeous pictures, I have to recommend the Minuteman Bike Path.

8 Backyard and Living Room Camping Ideas

Last year, my husband discovered how much he enjoys camping. I even got him a campfire cooking set. So you can imagine how disappointed I was when things started going into lockdown. While the COVID-19 numbers are staying pretty even in Massachusetts, I’m not sure I want to press my luck by going to a campsite where there are shared areas like bathrooms. However, that’s no reason to cancel camping plans! This post contains everything you need to have fun camping in your own home or backyard and you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy this!

What to Expect at Revere’s International Sand Sculpting Festival

Just a heads up, I’m not entirely sure if the Sand Sculpting Festival will happen this year because of Covid, but it’s still nice to see what “normally” happens at this time of the year!

When I first moved up here, I believed that people wore sweaters all year round, and they didn’t have beaches, and if they do, it’s probably more like British beaches that are rocky and not sandy. I was really sad, and it also didn’t help that we moved to Massachusetts in December and everything was covered in snow with more snow to come. However, spring was such an amazing time and when summer came around I can’t tell you how happy I was to discover I actually lived closer to a beach than I ever have in Florida and it’s actually pretty nice!

If you’ve never been to Massachusetts or Revere and you want to see what they do for fun at the beach this post should inspire you.

Why You Have To Go Tubing in New Hampshire

I took pictures and wrote this post having no idea that Covid would have us in our homes. So for a moment, I want you to take a breath, forget a time of masks, gloves, and social distancing and enjoy this post as a life we can get back to eventually:
Picture this. Floating down a river, a cooler full of your favorite beverage next to you, and you’re surrounded by beautiful woodlands. If that sounds fun to you then tubing down the Saco River is something you definitely have to this summer. I had the pleasure of trying this out and I can’t wait till I can do it again. It’s the absolute perfect way to enjoy a summer Saturday in my opinion. I’m also not being paid by the Saco River Tubing Center to write this review. I’m writing it because it was honestly a really fun experience, and having fun is what this blog is all about!

My thoughts on the LGBTQ Community and the Provincetown PRIDE festival with a video!

If you want to learn how a closed-minded, self-righteous cow learned how to be nice to people because of LGBTQ people being nice to her, then please continue reading. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you came here for the video, then scroll to the bottom.

I am a woman. I am straight. I am married. I was raised with a belief system that at times I feel like I’ve abandoned and other times I feel closer to…Perhaps I should start from the beginning.

The Annual Japanese Festival in Boston

A few years ago, I had a fantastic and crazy 8-hour layover in Narita, Japan. My husband and I tried our best to make use of the time, and we headed to Tokyo. It was beautiful, and crazy and crowded yet mysteriously clean. We went to the iconic Robot Restaurant then ate some super late night dinner (which we chose from a picture menu) at the Japanese equivalent of Denny’s and then dragged ourselves to our hotel and crashed until the next morning before our plane flight.

If you can’t get to Japan this year, but find yourself in Boston during the 25th and 26th of this month, you can get a taste of what Japanese culture is like!

Where to go for a Luxurious Valentines in Boston

I think everyone loves luxurious things. To be pampered once in a while is a great feeling to have and what better time to do that than for Valentines. If you’re tired of the usual flowers, chocolates, and taking your sweetheart to a crowded restaurant routine then this will hopefully add some spark to your love life. This post does contain an affiliate link which means if you click it and buy something, I get a small commission. Thank you!

February in Boston can be downright miserable. It’s hard to dress up in cute outfits that you’re going to cover up with a puffy unattractive coat and scarf. So I’ve planned two things very close together that are both luxurious and warm.
