Rewind Friday - Travel Throwbacks

Happy Friday!  We should have been on our way to spend the long holiday weekend in Canada.  I was so excited to spend the 4 day weekend in Montreal, but then Noah got sick earlier this week.  What started as a one day mild fever, turned out to be the coxsackie virus (hand foot and mouth), resulting in us being home all week as to not infect anyone else.  While there's a chance he is no longer contagious, we didn't want to take any chances.  I also wasn't in the mood for the stares from strangers because of the bumps he has on his face.  So instead we will be spending the holiday weekend at home.  

Today, however, is our first ever Rewind Friday link-up! In case you missed it, Beth, Whitney, Stephanie and I are hosting this new linkup as a way to share your favorite overlooked content. As a blogger, we are constantly creating and sharing content that we are proud of, and that we've often put a ton of time and effort into. Sometimes a post that we love and worked really hard to put together doesn't get the kind of attention (comments, visits, shares, pins, what have you) that we think it deserves. Now's your chance to get some new eyes on these posts! So grab my Rewind Friday button and link up some of your favorite overlooked posts!  #RewindFridayParty

When I originally planned this post, I thought it would be fitting to share some of my favorite travel posts, since I would have been on my way to Montreal.  While that isn't happening anymore, I still thought it would be fun to reminisce, and maybe even live vicariously through some of my favorite past vacations.  

Turks & Caicos - March 2016 (our most recent family vacation) 

I am a huge fan of taking a tropical vacation in the winter months.  I loved the Beaches Resort in Turks & Caicos and would love to go back again! I shared everything from what we did, ate, what I wore, some traveling tips, and things I didn't expect to happen! 

Miami, Florida - February 2014

This was our first vacation with Noah and his first flight!  We had an absolute blast and this is when I realized we could actually travel with Noah!

Miami - Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4

Baltimore, Maryland - April 2015

We went for a long weekend to Baltimore.  While we had a lot of fun, we were also there for the riots, which was kind of scary!  I also shared some more traveling tips, because you can never be too prepared when traveling with kids!

Baltimore - Day 1, Day 2, Day 3

Beach with the family - Narragansett, Rhode Island & Long Beach Island, New Jersey

Each summer, we try to go to the beach with our families.  My family goes up to Narragansett Beach in Rhode Island since that's where my older brother and his family live.  Chris' family goes down to LBI for a week, so we usually try to go down for 1 or 2 days with them as well.

Narragansett Beach - 2015, 2014, 2013
LBI -  2015, 2013

California - September 2011 (pre-Noah)

For our first anniversary, Chris and I went to California.  We started in San Francisco, drove down the PCH, and ended in LA.  It was a wonderful trip that I hope to do again with Noah one day!  It's kind of funny to look back at how we traveled without kids ;)

Italy - September 2010 (our Honeymoon)

Chris and I went to Italy for almost two weeks as our honeymoon.  This was my third time in Italy and Chris' first.  We made sure to hit all the typical tourist cities and sites.  If we ever get back (which I hope we do) I'd like to spend more time in Tuscany and head to Cinque Terre.

So there you have it... A mix of new and older posts.   I can really see how this blog has grown over the past 6 years!  I can't wait to see what posts you link up! And don't forget... Each month we will feature the bloggers with the most clicked links, perpetuating even more views. Win win! 

Here are the dates of our future link ups! 
June 24th | July 29th | August 26th | September 30th 
October 28th | November 25th | December 30th

I'm linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday" and with A. Liz Adventures for "Five on Friday"!


  1. I am so so jealous of your honeymoon. We didn't get to take one - my mother in law was really sick just months after we got married. We keeps saying we will take one for a big anniversary. I'm thinking our 10th since our 5th is right around the corner and we don't have "honeymoon-ish" plans.

  2. My daughter is heading that way next month. So gorgeous.

  3. I'm going to RI in July! To Block Island. I'm so excited!

  4. I am so excited how well the link up is doing! Talk about a lovely surprise this Friday morning. Have a great weekend!

  5. Your travel posts are some of my favorite posts! I'm excited to go back and read some that I missed (like your honeymoon and CA trips!)

  6. What a fun throwback. I love the theme too. With summer coming (pretty much here) we all have travel on our brain :).

  7. I can't wait to go through all of these posts!
