My whole life I’ve wanted to get to the west coast. West coast best coast right? Well, life has a funny way of throwing you a complete curveball sometimes – I love New England.
My best friend moved from Pennsylvania to Connecticut when we were in seventh grade, and since then I’ve been visiting up there every year. After I got my license I started to visit more often and I made a few close friends in that neck of the woods. Eventually, I fell in love with a Connecticut boy and now this August I’m due to move up to the Constitution State. So weird. I always thought if I moved anywhere in my 20’s it would be California, Hawaii, Arizona, Florida, or anywhere I’m able to wear summer clothes year round, but I’m going to be trading in my crop tops for a parka.
This is a win-lose situation in my eyes. As much as I love the sun, I love Tony a heck of a lot more and I’m going to have so many opportunities at my new college in New Haven.
Apart from my little life story, I went up to Connecticut this past week and snapped a couple photos to share here. I can’t wait for what life has in store for me.
Ocean Beach, New London CT. I’ve never been here during beach season but the off season is still great. New England beaches are so cute and charming.
Mystic, CT. Home of the famous Mystic pizza (where Tony and I split a pie). I must say, it’s one of the top places for pizza in my opinion. Plus, the town of Mystic is super cute and they have docks right down from the pizza place that Tony and I sat on.
How cute is this little to go hummus package?! I found it when at a gas station when I was driving through New York on the way home. It made my trip so much better.
