Recently I visited New England and I had the best time! I had the chance to visit Providence, Boston, and Provincetown. It was my first time in New England and I found that everyone was so warm and friendly. I can’t wait to go back! Now this weekend is a busy one here in Florida; Labor Day weekend always brings out the crowds. No matter the party you decide to go to this weekend, remember that in the Sunshine State, the weather is so beautiful here that you can indeed wear white after Labor Day. Lots of love to you all!
