Happy Friday + Quick Trip to Boston

Fall Foliage | The Gallivant

I have a been a little naughty this week in neglecting the blog...The truth is that I have been busy getting ready to head up to Boston to attend Wayfair's Home For the Holidays Blogging Conference! I cannot tell you how excited I am to attend the event, which is being hosted with Boston Bloggers, and meet some of the faces behind the amazing blogs and companies from my hometown. It is also such a treat to be up in New England at this point in the season. It isn't quite freezing yet, but the foliage is amazing--the collection above is from my run this morning.

Right now I am sitting in my parents office while sipping a hot cup of coffee, and looking out at the brightly colored maple trees that line our driveway-- bringing back lots of nostalgic feelings of when I used to come home occasionally on the weekends from boarding school and do homework in this very spot, just as Autumn is about to round the corner into the holidays. We aren't able to make it up for Thanksgiving this year, so I am beyond grateful for this time to touch down and soak up the season for a few days. I would love to talk about the idea of "Home" and how it shifts in marriage, is complicated and a little confusing sometimes, but I think that deserves a whole post of it's own. All I can say is that I am happy to be here, and will be happy to go home to my husband on Monday. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Expect a full round of posts next week, and in the weeks to come--I have so many ideas brewing. As always, thank you so much for stopping by. 

xoxo,

Happy Monday! Although I miss John terribly, I have had such a great weekend back up in Massachusetts with my parents and friends. My first night home my mom threw a party for my brother and I, and it was so special to hang out with so many of our favorite people in my parent's gorgeous back yard.

 Yesterday we took a long walk on the beach and just chilled out, and this morning my cousin Alexandra and I had the best run around our big loop. It was in the 60s and sunny, perfect running weather, and we couldn't beat the scenery. Makes training to be the next Villa marathoners that much better!

One beautiful cousin took the plunge!

"Dad's Chair"

My mom, Blair, and I headed down to Newport today to spend a few days with my godmother and her family. It is so wonderful to be here as this is a place and group of people so dear to my heart. I am excited to catch up with everyone, enjoy the gorgeous weather, and sleep with the sounds of the sea right outside my window.

Hope everyone, no matter what they are up to, is having a lovely week!

It is good to be home.

Happy Friday everyone! It has been a fun and busy week down here as I have been getting ready to head up north to Massachusetts tomorrow for a week. I am beyond excited to go home to my parents house and see my family and friends, spend a few days in Rhode Island, and soak up the glory of New England summer.

I am going to try to stay consistent with my posting, but please forgive me if the Gallivant is a bit light next week. For more consistent updates, you can follow along on instagram! (@evr_thegallivant)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

{Gallivant Design} Beautiful Kitchens

Happy Monday, Lovelies! We adore our apartment, but it's one downfall is that we don't have the best kitchen space. Our kitchen isn't awful, but counter space and storage are definitely limited and it is hard to have more than one person in there at a time. Subsequently, I have spent some time dreaming of ideal kitchens in future homes, with plenty of windows and space to cook, eat, and drink tea in while chatting with friends. After all, who doesn't love a good kitchen party?

Here are some spaces I love:

Do you love your kitchen? If so, what are your favorite parts or details? 

xoxo,

Emily
