Our Trip to Martha’s Vineyard with Vineyard Vines

(This post is sponsored by Vineyard Vines and the Winnetu Resort, two brands we feel so lucky to have gotten to know so much about this summer and highly recommend you check out!) We land into Martha’s Vineyard by late morning.  As I look out the window, baby asleep in my lap, I can’t imagine a more stark contrast than that of leaving JFK in New York to arrive 45 minutes later at quaint Martha’s Vineyard.

Happy Weekend + Fave Links + Making The Most Out of It

Intentionality.  It’s why summer bucket lists are created.  We don’t want to get to the end of the summer and feel like we haven’t made the most of it.  It’s also why we create routines or make ourselves do something exactly the same way for a set of time. For 30 days I’m going to work out every day. I have found myself being really intentional about small things lately and it’s really satisfying.  For example, if Aaron and I are going to dinner I will think about one thing I really want us to discuss …
