Hump day

I'm currently reliving my early 20s through music on Spotify. The Killers, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand, MGMT, Passion Pit. There was some good music happening in the 2000s.

Derek brought me home a six pack of Harpoon Camp Wannamango. I'm looking forward to drinking those delicious bad boys later this week. I'm sticking to the H2O tonight. Once the laundry is done I'm off to bed.

Do the right thing

If you read my blog regularly you probably know that I despise Donald Trump. I don't think he's fit to lead this country and seems to be dragging us backwards. His latest terrible decision is to pull the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Why anyone would be against protecting the planet is beyond me.

Yesterday the Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, was quick to say that Boston would uphold the Agreement.

Boston is consistently ranked as one of the top greenest cities in the US and I'm grateful to live in a city that embraces clean energy and protecting our environment.

Boston is not the only city pledging to uphold the Climate Agreement. 92 other Mayors have also agreed to continue to honor the Agreement.

We will continue to lead. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we’ll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks. The world cannot wait — and neither will we.
I hope more cities pledge to honor the Agreement.

Come on summer

We didn't have any Memorial Day plans since we just got back from our honeymoon but the rainy weather certainly didn't motivate us to do anything. The heat even kicked on this morning. Definitely a stark contrast to Aruba weather. Any day summer wants to make its way to Boston would be great.

We're back from our honeymoon! We may be a little burnt and a few pounds heavier but we had a great time. We stayed at Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach and really enjoyed the resort. The pool and beach were fantastic as was the food. We were also in walking distance of a ton of other resorts and restaurants so the location was perfect.

Some of our favorite spots:

We didn't have any activities planned except for a sunset boat cruise which my cousin and her husband booked for us as a gift. We also had drinks with a former co-worker of mine who happened to be in Aruba staying nearby. Otherwise, we lounged on the beach and in the pool and drank a ton of Balashi beer and daiquiris.

We only stayed five days which may not seem long enough for some people but for us it was perfect. We both start to get a little antsy to get home if we vacation for too long. There's only so much lounging one can do. It was the perfect amount of time for us.

Mr. and Mrs.

As of yesterday around 1:15 p.m. We had such a great time and I'm so grateful for everyone who celebrated with us. We have some pretty awesome people in our lives and of course I now have a pretty awesome husband in my life.

RIP Chris Cornell

Very sad news this morning. Chris Cornell passed away last night at the age of 52. Growing up in the 90s his music was a huge part of my youth. From Soungarden to Audioslave to even the Casino Royale Bond theme, he was an amazing talent.

On my deathbed I will pray 
To the gods and the angels 
Like a pagan to anyone 
Who will take me to heaven
