To The Cape! Our Anniversary in Martha’s Vineyard

Things can get weird when you’re both a prescriptive planner and a perpetual procrastinator. When we decided to spend our 1-year wedding anniversary in Boston & Cape Cod, I immediately set off on planning mode…and then got incredibly distracted / frustrated by Mike’s lack of opinion on the matter / overwhelmed by…

A Weekend in Boston
