St. John's is an amazing city. It's so gorgeous with all it's historic buildings and colorfully painted homes. We spent most of our days just walking down by the harbor.

Here are some photos* of our time spent there.

Frozen Herbs

Before we went on our trip, Eric's Dad sent us home with a big pile of fresh herbs from his garden. Knowing that we wouldn't have time to use or dry them before we left, I quickly Googled how to freeze herbs and found the idea of preserving them in olive oil over at The Kitchn.

I chopped the herbs and placed about 2 tsp. of each one in an ice cube tray. I poured enough oil over to cover the herbs and froze them for a few hours. Once they were solid, I popped them out of the ice cube trays and into labelled freezer bags.

One Year!

We're back from our trip! I'll post some details and photos soon.

Eric and I celebrated our first anniversary on Sunday. It's been an incredible year full of laughs and love and it flew by! I can't tell you how much I look forward to the years to come.

Here are a few more of our wedding photos if you'd like to see. It makes me so happy to look through them and remember that amazing day.

Go East!

We're heading to Newfoundland and the Maritimes tonight for a two week vacation. We start our trip in St. John's where friends of ours are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary. From there well head to Halifax to visit with Eric's sister and tour around Nova Scotia,  PEI and the Magdalen islands.

I did a similar trip when I was about 16, but I can't wait to go back and take full advantage of George Street! I won't be posting while I'm away, but you can follow along on Instagram if you'd like annapalmiere.

In the meantime, here are a few past warm weather posts:

Have you seen Blake Lively's new lifestyle website, Preserve? I was skeptical at first- thinking it might be totally out of touch- but it serves as great gift guide and place for inspiration. I also think their idea behind giving back to communities is pretty cool.

Goodbye disposable income!
