Freshman Year Is Almost Over?

Sister Dearest,

Wow! Today is my last day of classes and then I have finals in a week. That means I am done my entire Freshman year in a week, that is craziness. I just wanted to do a little recap of what I have been up to during these past 9 months. (Through pictures of coarse)

Finally moved into college

Started my Art Class

Was the SunDrop girl for Halloween πŸ™‚

Went to Avicii and….

Pretty sure I broke my feet

You came home for CHRISTMAS πŸ™‚

Then I came out to New Zealand to see you over my Winter Break

Enjoyed my Trim Flat White almost every morning

On the way out to NZ, had a beautiful layover in San Fran- such an awesome cafe

Back to school for the second semester and decided to pledge for Alpha Phi Omega

Lived here for the remainder of my second semester practically

Went home now and then to see mom and of coarse little Lucy πŸ™‚

Found my new obsession (aside from coffee)

And of coarse throughout the whole year at UNH, I constantly would FaceTime you (almost on a daily basis) I miss you tremendously and now that my year is coming to an end, you will be coming home even sooner. Have a splendid day Ash.

Lots O Love,




Sister Dearest,

I am sorry for being on a hiatus for the past two weeks. In all fairness though, I have been living in the library. I know you may think this is exaggerating but it felt as if I truly did. I had an exam and a paper due every single week for the past MONTH! the agony! You out of anyone knows what this means… LOTS O COFFEE! I can only laugh because my bank account only has transactions from Dunkin Donut haha

It looks pretty from the outside- but after being in there for hours, you slowly start to lose your mind.

The only relationship that has ALWAYS been there for me: Coffee πŸ™‚

Some days I didn’t mind going to the library because we had a couple miserable days. I only Instagrammed this photo to make it look antiqued. The sky really did look like that…scary huh?

One of the only things that kept me sane over the past month was my weekly dinner with Dakota. I am lucky enough to have him be so willing to drive because I have had plenty of dinners in Newmarket. I really enjoy this little town. Our favorite place to eat: Rocky’s Burgers πŸ™‚ I always get the California Burger (substitute the beef for a chicken breast) SO YUMMY!

So as the weeks go by, I will soon be done with my first year in college. That is crazy, I will be a Sophomore in college?! Weirdddddd. Well wish me luck on my studies.

Lots O Love,


PS. I made thisΒ Study Playlist for anyone who needs to spend a long time in the library, especially ME. Enjoy.

Relay For Life

Sister Dearest,

On April 21, I participated in an event called Relay For Life. It is a 24 hour event where people walk around a track in remembrance of those who have cancer or those who have been lost the battle. I was planning on just coming at the tail end of it but when I went in the morning to register, It was so inspiring that I decided to stay for up to 9 hours. I was exhausted, but it was well worth my Saturday.

The survivors (the ones wearing purple) walked around the track holding purple balloons and tied them around poles that represented how many years they have had cancer. It was so moving.

It was also fun. They had music blasting and people dancing and singing for little intermissions. Also, my fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, raised the most money so we got to sit in the VIP section where we got free food and most importantly, COUCHES!

My favorite part was the hour when they shut off all the lights and lit up the whole field house with illuminated bags dedicated to people who have lost the fight for cancer. Everyone was silent and respectful. It was sad watching some of the participants crying in front of their loved ones bags.

Lots O Love,


Easter Festivities

Sister Dearest,

Easter has arrived! Well… arrived about 20 days ago, but hey I’m a college student- I’M FREAKING BUSY! haha but the fun about this Easter was that mama and I baked and baked and BAKED! So much fun… until I had to lay on the coach from divulging in too much of the yummy treats (especially the homemade lemon cupcakes) πŸ™‚

You will not believe the AMAZING cake we made! It was a legit coffee cake. There was coffee grounds in the cake and the frosting. SO GOOD! But, funny story- Mom and I were just so excited to get the cake together we didn’t wait long enough for the cake to cool and put it all together. When we went into the fridge to look at it, it had broken apart and fell all over the inside of the fridge. DISASTER! But we managed to revive it and it was still delicious.

Β It was not only Easter, but Dakota’s birthday as well! So we had a little celebration for him (And Kerry too because her birthday was just a few days before). We also had the classic Easter Basket hunt in the WEE morning. I really enjoyed my basket. Wish you were here with us on this holiday, but I shall see you this summer and that will be lots O fun.

Lots O Love,


Public Announcement

Sister Dearest,

HAD to share this with you. I knew you’d get just as much of a kick out of it as I did. After I got a coffee at a local shop the other day, I was perusing their community announcement board outside. Amongst the regulars (flatmates wanted, bike for sales, yada yada yada) I found THIS! Gold.

I love that the short dressed chick just laid it out there via public notice board. I wonder if hot tattooed man will ever see this note? Would he even know that she was talking to him?

Here’s the way I’ve played the story out in my head.

On Tuesday, hot tattooed man will walk into local cafe “X”, and order a trim flat white (trim because he’s an athlete and OBVIOUSLY keeps an eye on his figure). He’ll spot the note, and take a minute to blow on his coffee (completely unnecessary –but it will casually buy him a minute to ponder) and consider whether he is indeed the intended recipient of this public love letter. In the end, he’ll post a reply letter, which will read:
Dear Mystery Brunette,

If your face is as cute as your bum in that little dress, I’ll see you here Friday. Coffee on me.


Hot Tattooed Man.
