newport, ri

here we come! josh started a new job last week in newport so we are packing up and moving this weekend. we are so excited, but after living almost 4 years in the boston area i was kinda getting used to the fast paced life and crazy drivers. i'm relieved we don't have to say goodbye to our friends in boston because they are only 1.5 hours away. ikea is right in between newport and boston, so i'm hoping to plan some get togethers over swedish meatballs and lingonberry juice. i have a hard time with change so instead of thinking about all the things i'm going to miss or the fact that our family doubled in size here in mass., i realize i need to look to the future. so here are the places i want to visit in and around newport once we get settled in our new place:
-the modern printed matter store + studio in warren, ri
-nonchalant mom's store in wakefield, ri
-roger williams park zoo in providence
-breakfast at the barn (15 main road) in adamsville, ri
-newport art museum
-the redwood library and athenaeum
- pick up a growler of beer at buzzards bay brewery in westport, ma
-horseneck beach, easton's beach, gooseberry beach
-tiverton four corners
-westport rivers vineyard and winery
-south country hot air balloon festival in kingston, ri
-newport antiques show
-casey farm in saunderstown, ri
-hike at beavertail state park in jamestown, ri and fort adams in newport
