Spring is here! I know it has “officially” been here for a while, but it definitely hasn’t felt like it. But what a difference a weekend can make! With 60 degree weather, we just had to get outside. And the first place we always think to go? My favorite place in all of Rhode Island – Beavertail. Only this time, we got to take our old friends from Maryland for their first glimpse of the Rhode Island coastline. I love sharing this special place with new people. And what a great way to kick off this beautiful weather!
After a great Saturday at Beavertail and walking around Newport, I felt the weekend couldn’t get better. Oh, but it did! Sunday was even nicer. So after our friends left and Cooper got back from a birthday party, we were off for our next adventure. We always like to find new places to explore in Rhode Island, and Charlestown has been on that list for a while. It did not disappoint! The beach we found was quiet and beautiful! It was the perfect weather for flying a kite and throwing rocks.
We were in such good spirits after our beach adventure and wanted the fun to continue. So we came home and pulled out all the patio furniture and cleaned out the garage. That may not sound like fun to you, but Jeremy and I get such a thrill seeing the result of hard work. The garage looks great, and with the patio furniture out, we can enjoy the outside even more. Dinner on the patio won’t be too far off! (I still need to clean everything, but one step at a time.)
Today started off rough – sick Cooper and work stuff. But as I was going through our pictures from the weekend, I immediately felt at peace again. It’s amazing how even just the memory of sitting on a rock at the beach can calm me down. So if you’re having a rough start to the week too, I’ll leave you with this picture… (If only it came with a sound bite too!)
