Jenn got married!

By: Jenn Kovalski

I have officially entered wife life, a club that I have been not so subtly trying to join for the last 3 years (I used to email John wedding rings). John and I got married on August 28.

It was the most wonderful day, and it went by so fast, I hardly remember a thing! While Covid-19 forced us to change our plans countless times, it did not ruin our special day one bit.

Our favorite photos of Summer 2020

By: The Napolitano Team

The sentiment around here is that Summer 2020 didn't just fly by, it really, really f l e w ! While Covid-19 had dampened and altered many of our summer plans, it didn't stop any one of us on the Nap Team from enjoying the warm weather and life. We (safely) made the most of it and have gathered each team member's favorite photo of the season. Remember, Labor Day is the unofficial ending of summer. There are still a few weeks left to enjoy, so snap a few photos and send them our way, we would love to see them.

Thinking Spring

Spring is here, folks. The days are getting longer, the sun’s warmth is getting stronger and all the tulips and daffodils are bursting out of the ground. Spring has always represented nature’s renewal and rebirth, and this spring (despite all of the COVID-19 limitations and closures) is no different. In fact, because of all the quarantine and social distancing, it seems nature has never had a better spring. Pollution in the cities is so down, you can actually view the cityscapes from afar. Boat traffic in the Venice waterways is so reduced that sea life is visible. With all of us being home, we have had a new appreciation for spring as we have actually had time to stop and smell the roses. And those bird nests that seem to appear overnight, well turns out when you’re home, you actually get to see them being built, and it’s a lot of work. While some of our spring plans have been altered, we are still making the most of it, and as a result have started new traditions and have been able to devote more time to our passions. To see what spring is to us and what we are seeing, sniffing and doing...

What's Cookin'?

During this time of quarantine and social distancing, a lot of focus is being put on meal time. Some of us were getting a little bit bored with the usual weekly menu, so we decided that since we’ve been spending more time in the kitchen cooking, (which we enjoy, it’s the cleaning up that’s the pits) that we would each share a recipe. So in an effort to inspire all you foodies out there, here are a few ideas for you to try out while you’re home too. And please, if you have any great recipes, share it with us, as we could use some culinary inspiration ourselves. Most importantly, if you attempt one of ours listed below, let us know how it turned out! Bon Appetit!

The Nap Team's Current State of Affairs

Firstly we’d like to say our hope is all our readers stay health during these difficult and unprecedented times. Eventually this crisis will pass, but in the meantime we will need to make progress one day at a time. Despite all the recent hardships, we think it is important to focus on all we have to be thankful for such as friends, family and living in a tremendous country, warts and all. Stay Well!

Skunked Take II

We swore that it would never happen again, but it sure did. Believe it or not, my dog, Dougie got sprayed by a skunk- in the month of February no less! And to top things off, it occurred exactly 5 days after a $90 grooming of a lifetime.

Sunny San Diego

By: Jennifer Kovalski

About a month ago, I visited San Diego for a long weekend getaway. It was my first time visiting the west coast, and it did not disappoint. For those of us in MA, this past April has been one of the rainiest months in history, (I think it rained 20/30 days or something like that) which has had me looking back to San Diego to help me remember what sustained sunshine is like.
