Spring By The Sea

Some days, you have to throw on your Sunday best, muddy a pair of white heels and twirl by the daffodils by the sea.┬áThis past weekend was Newport’s Daffodil Days Festival. Daffodils were blooming all over the island, along the Cliff Walk and covering fields. While it was gloomy and foggy, the yellow blooms provided…

Easter Bunnies

I’m so happy I went home for Easter. I love being able to spend time with my parents and fur-babies! I lectored the 11:30 mass before coming home, changing into pjs and having ham dinner and lots of chocolate cake in the afternoon, which was compensated for by the 57mi of biking I managed to…

Cherry Blossom Season

The other night I went for a walk to look at the cherry blossoms right before they peaked. I like to go once slightly before when there are still some buds, when they are peaked, and then just past peak when the petals have begun to fall. The cherry blossoms are undeniably one of the…
