Annual East Coast Adventure – Boston Wedding Edition

I guess I should say “mostly annual” as I had to skip my trip to New England last summer because I was making my best friend drive me through Oklahoma. But as most of my travel is now dictated by where people I love decide to celebrate their loves, I was very happy to get to roll a quick trip into seeing my parents in Connecticut as well.

I started it out with a nice relaxing evening on my parent’s porch, drinking wine and arguing with my dad:

If you can’t read the sign – it says HaddamSingles.com – I don’t know why they need their own site out there, but who knows

I have the best view in the world:

I made my parents take me to one of my favorite restaurants in the whole world – The Blue Oar on the Connecticut River:

I’m not sure why Mom looks vaguely terrified

The sky was beyond-words-gorgeous:

When I arrived, starving, I wandered into Cafe Jaffa for an excellent kebab:

(We were there for Alexis and Tucker’s wedding, but I’m not putting up a lot of wedding pictures here, more will be up on Facebook when I get my broken laptop back, but this isn’t a wedding blog…so…)

The day after a really fun rehearsal dinner Miró and I grabbed delicious brunch at the Trident Bookstore and Cafe:

I mean it's gorgeous

OK, maybe a couple of wedding pictures (the venue was the gorgeous Moraine Farm in Beverly, MA)
