Happy weekend! A and I are back and getting back into a normal work/life routine is harder than I thought it would be. I am slowly adjusting back will be back to a regular posting schedule next week. In the meantime I wanted to share one of my favorite Instagrams from the trip in case anyone missed it. If you need a Caribbean destination, I highly recommend our resort: Carambola Beach Resort in St Croix. 

Have a great weekend! I'll be resting, unpacking, and cleaning out in A's apartment to make room for myself :)

Tomorrow we leave for St. Croix and I am elated to finally have almost a whole week to just let go and relax with my favorite person. I'll be Instagramming along the way, so be sure to follow along! Any suggestions on the island are welcome too!

wed / tented south carolina wedding

When I saw this wedding on the Southern Weddings Mag blog, my jaw dropped. Not only was the family plantation a stunner, but the details were breathtaking. It was hard to pick just a few favorite photos, but be sure to see the whole wedding here. Those hardwood floors in the tent are truly one of a kind!

local / sip + eat

Have you had Taza chocolate yet? Locally made in Somerville, MA, Taza is stone ground, organic, and delicious! Taza is available in retailers all over, but you can of course buy directly from their website. I've had a few opportunities to taste Taza with wine and cheese (sometimes work is really hard) and I'm itching to host a pairings party of my own. 

Find their guides for wine, beer, and cheese

Host any pairings parties before? Any suggestions?
