• From Here To There: Cape May, NJ

    The first year we were dating, we decided to start a Christmas vacation tradition. The weekend after Thanksgiving, we wanted to go somewhere and enjoy the long weekend. We have been to New York, Boston, and Rhode Island leading up to this year. With Dave’s surgery, we were’t sure where we were going to go this year, if anywhere at all. Thankfully, one of our bridesmaids gifted us with a weekend in Cape May for our wedding, and we knew that would be the perfect getaway. We are only 2 and a half hours from Cape May, but it isn’t a trip we often take. Dave had never been and…

  • May Recap What Happened in May

    April Showers Bring May Showers

    Hello May, it’s June, hopefully your much less rainy younger sister.┬áIt rained for 22 out of 31 days in May and I am not exaggerating. Seriously, the rain was non-stop and pretty depressing. I normally love the rain, especially falling asleep to it hitting the roof, but now I am over it. I need summer and sunshine already! Thankfully, we just had an amazing Memorial weekend full of sunshine, so I am on my way to a tan…hopefully! This month seemed nonstop, I think I managed to only have 2 breakdowns, so that is always a plus. When will I learn to start saying no? I don’t think it will…

  • 101 in 1001 FINAL Update!

    I can’t believe it has already been 1001 days since making my 101 in 1001 list! It’s been a lot of fun not only checking things off but seeing how things have changed in the last 2+ years. I love having a list to go off of that is goals for various facets of life, but also to keep track of how my life is going. I updated my final list below, and I would love to know if you finished off your list as well! I am clearly been awful with blogging and don’t have much time to read others blogs lately, so let me know in the comments…

  • Year One As The Volpe’s

    I already mentioned it, but this is a sappy week here on the blog. It’s so crazy to me that we have already been married for a year, and I want to take some time to reflect on that. So Monday’s post was all about our marriage itself, today is a monthly reflection, and I have another post for Friday. I hope to look back on these marriage letters in the future and remember that things don’t always go as planned, but marriage is the best ride to be on. For the last 12 months I have been keeping a note on what we have experienced for our first year…

    Checking in on My 101 in 1001 & Link-Up!

    I’m so excited to be co-hosting the #my101in1001 link-up with Vivian from Vivian Bishop xo, and we can’t wait to see how everyone else is doing on their lists! If you aren’t familiar with a 101 in 1001 list, you can read more about it here, and check out the lists that others are sharing. The concept started as a simple list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, like a bucket list, and I figured it would be the perfect link-up! I have always been a list person, but bucket lists seem to be too much to manage at times. There are so many things that can happen…

    A Look Back At 2015 & Hashtag Announcement

    Here it is, the very last day of 2015. This year has had it’s ups and downs, but it has also brought me the most amazing memories. I married my best friend, got a new last name, meet amazing new friends, got serious about blogging, worked more towards my dream career, and so much more. It actually makes me sad to see this year ending, it is one I will cherish forever. January Dave was still recovering from his heart surgery, so we spent a lot of time playing games, watching movies and enjoying each others company I spent a lot of time working on things for our wedding. All…
