Friday Faves of June

Happy July 4th weekend! I feel like I blinked and it was Memorial Day, now the 4th. We are in Newport celebrating America - what are your plans? I hope to get to more regular posts this month; for now, here is what I loved in June!

Life Lately

Happy July! It's been a little quiet here on the blog the past few weeks. I have been busy with work & events during the week (our new summer issue is out!), and the weekends are packed with bridal showers, family get-togethers, and getting out to enjoy the first days of summer. Here's what's been happening lately!
A dinner in the North End has to end with a cannoli & cappuccini at Caffe Vittoria.
A sunny Sunday in Boston is best spent perusing local wares and goods at the South End Open Market (don't forget the food trucks for lunch!).
Loved the simple table setting and flowers at my cousin's bridal shower.
Speaking of bridal showers, I got my future sister in law's invitations out the door! Loved the Minted bridal shower invitation we chose.
A work event doesn't seem like work when it's a Boston harbor cruise.
A quick day trip north to Portsmouth with a best gal pal and her son.

What's been happening with you lately? Hope your summer is off to a great start!


Gigi New York Mini Books

I love these leather mini books by Gigi New York. They are chic and functional for list-making, notes, etc. and small enough to toss in any purse. Gigi New York offers monogramming too. They'd be a great gift for the female in your life, or yourself :) I especially like the "I could give up shopping, but I'm no quitter" one. Amen.

Sedona Airport Sunset
Mom and I had a wonderful 4 days in Sedona last week. It was my 30th birthday present to go for a spa and adventure trip. From off-roading into the gorgeous red rocks on a Pink Jeep Tour to shopping in nearby old town Cottonwood to a massage down by the creek at L'Auberge Spa to eating delicious meals at SaltRock KitchenChe-Ah-Chi (among other spots), we certainly enjoyed all that Sedona had to offer! I posted a bunch of pictures on Instagram (#jgandlgtakesedona) as well. I highly recommend Sedona and will definitely be going back! Thanks to my mom for an amazing, unforgettable trip. I love you!

L'Auberge Sedona Creekside
The resort was so magical, situated down on the creek. We had dinner there the first night creekside and it was a delicious 4 course meal. The place smelled of fresh green grass & jasmine with a soothing sound of birds and the brook. I loved the large lanterns by every table!

Shopping fun included my favorite stores Clear Creek Trading Co. in Sedona & The Sassy Cowgirl Boutique (got some new cowboy boots!) in Cottonwood. Of course, we hit up the antique and jewelry stores too! 
Pink Jeep Tour Sedona Red Rocks
The Pink Jeep Tour to Broken Arrow Trail was fun and exhilarating with 360 degree views of the amazing & vast red rocks.

Stay tuned for more photos later this week!
