We Traveled Back In Time In Massachusetts

It's crazy to me that I'm still sharing photos from our Massachusetts trip-- it was over a month ago now! And it's even crazier that I still have a (delicious) New Orleans post waiting in drafts! I'm not sure how these got pushed aside, but I loved these photos too much not to share them here, even weeks and weeks later.

I'm not sure we were supposed to pet him--- don't tell anyone. 

I've been to Old Sturbridge Village a few times growing up, always for school field trips. It's one of those go back in time, role playing type of places--- I'm sure there's a better way to describe it, but you know, it's late and I'm half on (what's new drea?). Either way, I enjoyed it as a kid. I mean, sure, mostly because who doesn't love field trips and endless rock candy?! But going back as an adult, twenty years later (!) was a pretty cool experience, even without indulging in rock candy. It's crazy how differently we see things as adults isn't it? I enjoyed it then, but appreciate it now. The weather was chilly, damp, and just a bit dreary--- just how we wanted it. The buildings were cool. The gardens were impressive. And it was just a nice, relaxing, and different way to spend our day.

not the teachers pet. 

all pictures from behind, c/o of my mom, the master of paparazzi. 

 a family photo! (thanks mom!) 

I'm more than content in the tropics, but this life is pretty cool too--- especially with these people. 


  1. I love those kinds of places! I even made my fiance go with me to one in Ireland while we were there. What can I say? I have always been a fan of historical fiction.

    1. I have mixed feelings about visiting them, but this place was great :)

  2. Thanks for taking us along on your adventures! The photos are great, but one question....where's your mom???

    1. She's in two of the pictures--- the darker haired colombian with my child--- that looks like me--- haha. She dislikes being in photos more than I do ;)

  3. this place looks amazing!! marlowe is so cute!!



  4. I love all these back-logged vacation photos, keep them coming! Marlowe looks like she's having the best time in that pottery class :) your mom is a pretty decent paparazzi, when I hand the camera to mine our heads get cut off or the photos are all blurry!

  7. Looks like a really interesting place for a wander round, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I really like the family photo - one to treasure I think. CJ xx

  8. Wow these photos really are great. I've never been as north as Massachusetts, but I plan to get there one day. Glad you had a great trip!
