Nine years ago, I made some really amazing college friends. Girls that I would stay friends with for a lifetime. My first college roommate, ever, now lives in Rhode Island, which is a treat for me because I love traveling to visit friends and getting to see their life and hometown.
Early Saturday morning, my friend and I took a ride down from Maine to Rhode Island, to visit our friend and her growing little family. It’s hard sometimes to be so far from friends, especially when you see them having kids and you can’t be there enough to spend time with them. So I try to soak up every single ounce of quality time with my friends and their little babies, when I’m home. Our time in Rhode Island was very well spent; Laughing, talking, catching up on life, girls night out, and playing with babies, all amounted to the perfect weekend.
Saturday afternoon, we went exploring through the town of Warren, which was filled with cute little boutiques, shops, cafés, and restaurants. Everything was in full bloom, flowers were bright and vibrant, the smell of the ocean was close by, and the warm summer breeze was blowing through the air.
We stopped into a little coffee shop, called Angelina’s Coffee; a cute little place, nestled in the middle of downtown.
After some good coffee and a few hours by the pool, we went out for dinner at a place called, The Square Peg. The ambiance was cozy and casual and the food was absolutely delicious! I ordered a mouthwatering plate of two braised chicken street tacos with onion, cilantro, and chili lime sauce. A simple and portioned meal, was very substantial.
Our girls night out, included drinks by the water at a restaurant called, Trafford. Trafford restaurant offers some of New England’s best seafood and luxurious waterfront views. Something I’ve wanted to do for so long and haven’t been able to do, living in Oklahoma, is enjoy a few martinis by the water. I love Rhode Island because of how close everything is to the ocean. I just love the nautical feel of the state. We sat outside on the deck of Trafford, which overlooked the ocean and watched the sun set as we sipped our martinis and shared some good laughs.
