Remember as a kid when you had to recap your summer in those first hazy still kinda summer/not quite fall days of school? Well, yeah, I’m bring that back on the blog today and as I attempt to explain my 3(ish) month blogging hiatus. My sorry excuse can be best be summed up by the three simple words SUMMER-IN-NEWPORT because basically, yeah, I’ve been out enjoying it (as well as writing about it on other blogs and publications) and thus, my poor little blog has severely suffered. Here’s a quick recap of my summer, which is sadly coming to a close. More to come, promise!
“How I spent my summer vacation”
-Moving to a new fabulous apartment (and hosting a tour of friends and family now that we have guest accommodations!)
-Day-tripping to Block Island (and swimming in the bluest water around at the “secret” Mansion Beach)
-Rocking out at the Newport Folk Festival and a Zac Brown Brand show
-Hanging at Easton’s Beach in the locals section (AKA to the left of the “Meat Sticks”)
-Telecommuting from my newly minted home office or my favorite coffee shop in town Empire Coffee and Tea on Broadway
-Exploring the rest of Rhode Island (meaning I “crossed the bridge” and went “off Island”) and finding new favorite spots in Jamestown, East Greenwich, Watch Hill and Narragansett
