Every summer my family travels up to Maine. It’s almost an 8-hour car ride, and miraculously, we all arrive intact year after year (despite the immense urge to kill one another). Over the years, Maine has grown to feel like a second home to us. It is very difficult to put into words the magic of the beautiful landscape or the peace that I feel when I am there. Instead, I thought I’d share a few family photos from our trip with you all. Enjoy!
I was visiting my grandparents out on Long Island this weekend so I missed the Pride Parade in New York, but I was still in spirit, rocking my new rainbow espadrilles from Saint James. I love how happy and bright they are!
I was home in New Jersey this weekend celebrating my sister’s high school graduation. It is hard to believe she is heading off to college in just a few short months!
The second leg of our Iceland adventure kicked off with The Golden Circle tour, a full-day bus trip that takes visitors around to all the classic Iceland sites. We traveled to waterfalls, churches, and geysers. I think one of the great things about Iceland is that there is such a broad range of activities and attractions that appeal to all different age groups. The group on our bus tour ranged from people who were our age up to 60 and 70 year olds. It was an excursion that was friendly for everyone.
Reykjavík was the perfect destination for a quick visit over Memorial Day weekend. It’s not too long a flight from New York (approximately 5 hours), and it was very do-able within the short time frame we had. The landscape, culture, unique geothermal activity, and history found there made Iceland one of the most otherworldly places I have ever traveled. I can certainly understand what all the buzz is about and why it is such a hot destination right now (despite the fact that it is freezing cold there).
If you find yourself in London soon, you absolutely must have brunch at The Riding House Café near Oxford Circus.
