Omni Mount Washington Resort

The morning of the Bucceri wedding we drove out to the Omni Mount Washington Resort for a quick sightseeing adventure. Over the years I’ve seen pictures of this place and thought it looked stunning with the white building and bright red roof set amongst a green landscape of trees and mountains. While we didn’t stay here on our visit, it would have been an absolute dream if we did! Upon walking through the main entrance of the hotel you are immediately overcome with the most welcome and calming scent. I actually googled “scent of mount Washington hotel” (haha) and found they have their very own signature scent called Mountain Mist. I’m still trying to figure out how I can get my hands on this scent to mist in my own house…
Can you imagine how amazing these views would be in the fall?!

Fun Times in Newport, Rhode Island

Earlier this month we took a trip to the East Coast for a family wedding in New Hampshire. We were looking to explore some new-to-us places and landed on a visit to Newport, Rhode Island for a few days. Our time there was short so we packed in a few key activities that would allow us to see the best of the best.

Cliff Walk: Along the eastern shore of Newport lies a 3.5 mile stretch of beautiful coastal views and a handful of mansions that show the architectural historical side of Newport’s Gilded Age. If you have more time than we did you can tour the inside of these amazing mansions! The Breakers was my favorite and looked absolutely breathtaking. I’d recommend grabbing a morning coffee to-go and leisurely walking the Cliff Walk while taking in the views. On the morning of our walk there was barely a cloud in the sky with a slight coastal breeze – it was perfect.

A Sailing Adventure: Experiencing Newport from a sailboat just seemed like the quintessential New England adventure, so of course I was all about this! There are multiple options for sailing adventures in town that offer similar experience at roughly the same price points. We landed on a morning sail with Sailing Excursions on the Adirondack II and LOVED them. It was quite the adventure as it was a windy day! Book your trip online in advance as a lot of the times sold out.

Our only regret in Newport is that we didn’t have more time to explore! Everything about this little place was just beyond adorable. The houses, the wharf, the seafood… it truly was an exceptional little town and I’d love to spend more time here in years to come.
