Welp, forget fall, winter showed up here overnight and we woke up to freezing temps. Cue the fireplace blaring and our favorite L.L. Bean slippers. Today is really exciting because we have a team dinner at Gurney’s in Newport to celebrate our 4 year blogging anniversary. We’ve never really celebrated it before but this year feels like a pretty big milestone, and we have a lot of exciting things planned for the rest of this year and 2018. Tomorrow Jess will be sharing a post about what it’s really like to be a full-time blogger (not holding anything back on this one) and next week there will be a post about lessons learned after 4 years. More importantly though, words cannot possibly express the gratitude we have for your continued readership and support. We honestly brag we have the best readers because all of you are such a fun, kind, open and positive group of people that make what we do even more rewarding. None of this would be happening without all of you and there aren’t enough ways to express how much that means to all of us. We’re so excited to bring you some really fun and exciting content over the next few weeks and months. Thanks as always for tuning in and engaging with us.
Jess (J) & Caylin (C)
