Peace, Love, Link Up #021

Welcome back to Peace, Love, Link Up! Word must be getting around about our little linky, because last week we set a new record number of links with 74! You guys make this happen, so with that in mind, here’s a heartfelt thanks!

Despite almost breaking the record number days in a heat wave earlier this month, I can feel a definite chill to the air some nights. It may be too early to get excited about, but not too early to think about. FALL! Overpriced pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, and mulled cider are just a few of things that I love about this season coming up. But before I get caught up in all that mania, there’s one more cookout to be had! I guess the lazy days of summer are winding down!

As always, please grab a button and tell all of your friends!

Happy posting!

A to Z List of Must-Dos This Spring/Summer

We didn’t have a traditional winter in Massachusetts this year, at least in terms of snowfall. But what we lacked in the fluffy stuff we more than made up for with cold depressing grey days.

IMG_8218

Montreal: the North American version of Paris. The best part is that Montreal is about 6 hours from where we live in Southeast Massachusetts. That makes it perfect to sneak off to on the weekend! Not to mention that because we don’t have to fly, it cuts the cost almost in half. We didn’t have more than a vague idea of what we wanted to do when we arrived. Having this non-agenda made it so we discovered a couple of hidden gems that make us long to go back someday soon! These are a few of them:

How to Have the Perfect Date Night on a Budget

Nowadays we’re always in a rush, on a budget, and disconnected from what is going on in the world. We often lose sight of the things that matter, and focus more on who wore what, why they posted that, and when the next follow spree is. Here are a few cheap date ideas where you can take the focus off of Instagram, and put it into your loved one.

101 Things in 1001 Days

Hello!!  What better way to kick off a blog than to make a bucket list and take you on my journey of completing it! I’ve seen this all over Pinterest, and I was thinking about how great of an idea it is, so here goes.

The Challenge:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. All tasks must be reachable and require some sort of effort.

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past — frequently simple goals such as new year’s resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.
