This past weekend Jim and I enjoyed an extended one, getting to show my college bestie Gina and her boyfriend Mark around town. We covered a lot of ground in three days, and I’m still getting through the few hundred photos I took over the course of the weekend. Next time I need to learn to stick to one camera and not three!
Here’s some of my favorites I managed to snap on my iPhone and post to Instagram as we were out in about.
We enjoyed coffee from Caffe Capri EVERY morning. They seriously have the BEST coffee in Brooklyn // Stopped for brunch at Champs Diner
We did some serious art gawking, especially at MOMA // Spotted this book at Poseman’s Books in the Chelsea Market and am convinced I need a vegan version of this Mondrian inspired cake for my upcoming birthday this July
Enjoyed beyond fantastic weather this entire weekend, especially during our visit to the High Line, where I spotted this fantastic mural // There were some new installations along the park that weren’t there during my last visit. This one in particular was stunning, the mirrored glass made the side of the building blend into the sky

I’m finally back after a great, relaxing long weekend in Cabo. Here’s some of my favorite moments from my trip, courtesy of Instagram.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT // My flight out was WAY too early! // My travel outfit. Stripes and skulls. // The view from our room at the resort // I lucked out with an entire row to myself on the flight out there.
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT // Mexican dinner show on our first night // Cabo isn’t humid, so my hair behaved beautifully // We HAD to check out Cabo Wabo! // My breakfast just about every morning. Veggie Omelet minus the egg, fresh fruit topped with shredded coconut and walnuts, hash brown potatoes, and refried beans //
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT // Our view during our Crossfit workout on the beach // Mega! Mexico’s version of Walmart (and way too cool not to check out) // A beautiful marsh we discovered on one of our beach walks at the top of a huge sand dune // HOLA! The Hola Grand Faro resort, where we stayed //

Wow, I didn’t realize I’ve been MIA on the blog for so long. I had been feeling under the weather for several weeks, and thank goodness just started feeling better just before the July 4th holiday, which Jim and I spent in Boston! Boston wound up being the best city to visit for that specific holiday. It was insanely patriotic and many of the historical sites that make the holiday so important are all located there.
Highlights of the trip include watching the fireworks from our hotel balcony, getting some great vegan food, and exploring Boston’s Freedom Trail.
Stay tuned for future posts on our trip. We had sooo much fun I have days and days worth of posts and photos to work on just to recap everything we did! I also have a great tutorial coming which I have been working on forever on my travel packing system, which is quite extensive considering my OCD tendencies. I packed for this 4 day trip with a tiny overnight bag.
