Cheers to the Childs!

These high school sweethearts tied the knot last weekend and I was honored to be part of it. 
I honestly have never seen Meghan so happy. Anyone who spends 5 minutes with Meghan & Ryan can see that they are meant to be together. I get emotional just thinking about it! Their wedding day was beyond perfect. 
Happy honeymoon, newlyweds!

The Cape

Cape Cod, Massachusetts is one of our all time favorite places. 
 3 years ago 

AJ played baseball there in 2010 for the Hyannis Harbor Hawks and I remember visiting and instantly falling in love with the Cape. Its hard to explain why, go visit and you'll probably love it too. Blue Hydrangeas and the ocean smell. Ahhh, I want to go back already.

That summer, he had the lucky pleasure of staying with an AMAZING host family, the Jones. We have kept in contact with them and they opened their home to us once again for the all star break! This is the only time in the entire season that AJ has 2 days in a row off. Whew! We packed those days full, and unfortunately (or fortunately) we were having so much fun that I didn't even think to get my camera out. So here are a few iPhone pictures.

I see many visits in our future. Thank you for having us, Jones family!

When in Maine

July has been a busy and fun month already! AJ's parents and sister came into New Britain for two days and then we ventured on a 5 day trip to Portland, Maine to watch some ball games.

Portland, Maine is a beautiful place. We spent lots of time in Old Port walking through shops and I got a different local iced coffee every day. We ate lots of clam chowder and sat inches from the ocean while having the best lobster roll around. Oh, and we went to a baseball game daily (obviously, the reason we were there). The Red Sox Double-A team is there, just hours from Boston, so the games were packed! 
I got to be with AJ on a summer holiday! Fellow baseball girlfriends and wives understand how awesome that is. We spent the 4th of July at his baseball game and watched fireworks over the outfield. It was perfect.
