Baby Girl & The Longest Week of My Life

I remember the weekend like it just happened. My husband was, at the time, working in Hawaii. On Friday night I drove to a wedding in upstate New York (then back to Connecticut that night) and left for a family session in New Hampshire early Saturday morning, followed by another family session in CT for sunset that evening (you can see that session here - one of my faves!), and then the next day a commercial photoshoot. It was busy and I remember thinking a couple of times “I feel real weird.” Long story short, it was that weekend I realized I was pregnant. And I couldn’t tell my husband for a week.

New England to Nova Scotia // Unconventional Spring Break - Part 3

The final(ish) entry documenting our trip to Nova Scotia. From Lunenburg to Halifax we learned the true meaning of farm to table, honored the history of NS as we walked through the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, tasted 16 samples of liquor as we tried to not fall off of barstools, enjoyed a final sunset on the beach, and indulged in one last decadent bite in historic Lunenburg before falling asleep and waking early to drive 13 hours back to Connecticut. I’m convinced the best vacations are the ones you feel like you could use a little vacation when you get home. The less you sleep the more you see.
