First, Tim and I went to Rhode Island. Vacation highlights included visiting Watch Hill with our friends Dave and Veronica who just moved to Rhode Island.

Tim and I also went to Newport. We spent the day visiting the Tennis Hall of Fame, touring the Breakers Mansion, and eating dinner at the Black Pearl.
Last weekend we went to a wedding in Portland, Oregon. It was my first time visiting the Northwest, and I thought it was beautiful. Portland is a really eccentric city. It seems like everyone there is a hipster, even the middle-aged people. The advantages of visiting a hipster city include:
- Great boutiques
- Tons of vegetarian options at restaurants
- Tater tots (for some reason they were on the menu at every restaurant)
- Frozen Yogurt
- Art - everywhere! Sculptures, Gardens right in the city, and paintings everywhere.
The wedding itself was beautiful. The ceremony was on the lawn of an Italian restaurant on a river.

Glad to be back on the blog!
Is anyone else going on vacation or to a wedding this summer?
