Might not be as famous as the NYC Skyline, but it is still an absolutely beautiful view. Love that Boston skyline!
As you probably already know from my post last week, that I headed up north to visit family in Boston. Of course, I couldn’t take a trip up there without stopping home in Newport, RI. My absolute favorite spot is First Beach off of Memorial Blvd next to the Cliff Walk. After a morning run by the ocean, I stopped on the benches just recover and take in the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.
It was very hard leaving and heading back to Maryland…
Hey everyone! I’m headed to Boston to go see my family for a bit. I won’t be around as much so apologize ahead of time if all seems quiet on the blog and my social media accounts. I’ll to get in updates here and there.
I’m overdue for some family time so this is much needed. I’m excited to see everyone and can’t wait to celebrate everything exciting going on with my Bostonian family.
To hold you over till my return, feel free to watch the appropriately titled “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” by Dropkick Murphys:
In honor of heading up to Boston to see family, my son has been wearing his favorite shirt…. his Kevin Garnett Boston Celtics Jersey! He’s had the jersey before he was even 1 year old. Thankfully it’s a 3T so it’s been able to fit him for awhile now.

Living in a historic city, my home is just a “baby” compared to the others in my area. Since it was built in 2002, I never thought I would have to worry about any hidden dangers. My home is sound in structure, and I was more worried about my son falling off all the furniture he climbs on, or sticking something in his mouth that shouldn’t be there and choking. Boy was I wrong thinking those were the only dangers. It doesn’t matter how old your home is, one deadly hidden danger is carbon monoxide (CO). colorless, odorless and tasteless, CO is deadly within minutes.
The only safe way to detect CO in your home with with a working CO alarm. While according to the U.S. Census, 75% of all homes have a potential source of carbon monoxide, it’s unfortunate to know that only 50% of homes have a functional carbon monoxide alarm. It is actually recommended that you place an alarm on every level of your home and in sleeping areas. I know I would feel much safer if I had all the areas covered to protect my family and I from this silent killer.
This year Kidde released the Worry-Free Carbon Monoxide Alarm! This alarm is the first and only UL-listed CO alarm proven to provide up to 10 years of protection. That is twice the lifespan in other available alarms! In other words, no more constantly have to change batteries, or that annoying low-battery beeping! These alarms are different because they use a sealed-in lithium battery that powers the alarm for a decade. How awesome is that?
Since the horrible tragedies that occurred Monday at the Boston Marathon, several organizations have offered support and assistance to those hurt physically and emotionally. Soon after, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino announced the formation of The One Fund Boston. One Fund Boston serves to raise money to assist families most affected by the deadly blasts.

White Picket Fence
Let’s go back quite a few years to my childhood home. I pushed two baby dolls in my little brother’s stroller while wearing my mother’s high heels up and down our hardwood floors. Those two babies went everywhere with me. They went to the park, watched cartoons with me and I even insisted on having a place for them at the kitchen table. I dreamed of a husband, twins and a family dog. Sounds “white picket fence” perfect, right?
Now I’m all grown up with a husband, a dog and a beautiful baby boy. I didn’t get those twins I was hoping for as a little girl, but as a mother of a 7 week old child, I can’t imagine having two! I tip my hat to the parents of multiples. How do you do it? Double late night feedings, two poopy diapers at once and twice as many outfit changes. I’m not the only one who recognizes the challenges of multiples; the fine people at Little Me want to help out.
