Our Family Wedding Weekend in Charleston

Mr. Lovebird and I returned with the kids late Monday night from the perfect mix of family, fun and food celebrating the wedding of my sister Ariane and now-brother-in-law Lawrence's wedding in Charleston, SC on Sunday!

Martha's Vineyard Family Fun at Summercamp Hotel

Disclosure: My family and I received a complimentary stay at Summercamp Hotel; all opinions expressed are my own.

As much as I've shown Martha's Vineyard on my social media feeds I had never been there with Mr. Lovebird AND the kids up until this past weekend when we were guests of Summercamp, a delightful hotel in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard that's part of the Lark Hotels boutique collection. 

We've been covered in gray skies and rain lately in Massachusetts, but the bright blue skies and gorgeous sun broke through just in time for our first visit to Martha's Vineyard as a family. We were there for about 24 hours, and we definitely made the most of it. 

Here are my top 5 favorite things about our visit...

I Heart Las Vegas #VegasStrong

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Las Vegas shooting, and I reflected in this Instagram post a while back how painful it's been seeing places that mean so much to me struck by tragic events. I often see online debates about whether to visit in the wake of tragedy, but I believe that it's often after these events that it's the best time to visit. Not only for tightened security, but also to stand in support and solidarity. 

Earlier this year when Mr. Lovebird and I found out Life is Beautiful would fall on my birthday we decided to return to Las Vegas for the 11th time, and it went from being a small birthday celebration to a larger family and friends celebration with my brother-in-law, sister-in-law and a few other couples. 

Here's how I witnessed #VegasStrong in action.

Summer Rewind: Nia's 8th Birthday

Kicking off Nia's birthday weekend on Cape Cod
Anyone else feel like time is collapsing? I certainly do and wanted to take a step back and share how we celebrated Nia's 8th birthday last month. This was her first year requesting an indoor birthday, and out of all her eight birthday parties it was also the only year that it has rained. Good call, Miss Nia! 

Now on to picture overload...

Back to School with PhysicianOne Urgent Care

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by PhysicianOne Urgent Care as part of an influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

This week has been a big one for my family: with my son starting his second year of preschool yesterday he and his sister are now at the same school and will continue to be there through the entire school year. While it's been quite the celebration, we've also had a rough week health-wise, but we are thankful for the care we received at our local PhysicianOne Urgent Care facility.

My Return to the 2018 Jazz Age Lawn Party

I'm en route to my sister Ariane's bachelorette party in NYC this weekend and am also squeezing in a return to my 6th visit to the Jazz Age Lawn Party. I haven't been since 2015 when I took both kids, but this time around I'm excited to go kid-free. The forecast looks AMAZING, and I think it will be a wonderful way to cap my weekend in my favorite city!

I thought it might be fun to take a look back at some of my favorite moments at the JALP...

My Wayfair Wedding Registry Picks

Disclosure: I am a Wayfair Homemakers blogger; all opinions expressed are my own. 

My husband and I just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary, and as I look ahead to my sister's upcoming wedding in Charleston, SC this fall I've relished in the nostalgia of planning my own wedding. Of course as the big sister, I've shared intermittent wisdom with her (mostly unsolicited solicited!), but today I'm going all out when it comes to creating a wedding registry thanks to Wayfair.

I've chosen a few of my favorite items to share with you...
