When Orlando & Emily came into town to visit Eddie & I’s new place we wanted to take them down to Portsmouth. It’s quickly becoming one of our favorite places to walk around town, view the shops, eat the delicious food, and see all of the pretty buildings.
With Eddie’s work schedule we’re mostly free to do things while the sun sets which means i’m getting even more used to the freezing temps (hello, my southern butt can hardly handle it!), and attempting to take pictures at night.
Two of my most favorite shops we’ve discovered so far are Gus & Ruby and Off Piste.
They have this whimsy, modern, off-the-wall AWESOME feel full of beyond amazing items. I’ve joked with Eddie that whenever I go into Portsmouth it would probably be wise to leave my wallet at home.
Exploring this new city, is opening my eyes to so much.
Eddie and I will have many more times in front of us where we will be exploring new cities and making new memories. As terrifying as it is to be leaving the home I’ve known for 28 years and to move to a new city and make new friends…it’s also incredibly freeing and exciting. There is so much of this world I want to see and so many people I want to meet and talk to.
& total side note (since that’s my jam) how cute are those mountain earrings?!?! <3
