The Elms (Newport, Rhode Island)

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
(Buddha)

If I have a favorite mansion in Newport that would easily be The Elms. For me this is the most instagrammable mansion of all. I am absolutely hooked!

Here are photos of my previous Elms Experience for the past years:

The Elms is a large mansion, facetiously a “summer cottage”, located at 367 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island, USA. The Elms was designed by architect Horace Trumbauer (1868–1938) for the coal baron Edward Julius Berwind (1848-1936), and was completed in 1901. Its design was copied from the Château d’Asnières in Asnières-sur-Seine, France. The gardens and landscaping were created by C. H. Miller and E. W. Bowditch, working closely with Trumbauer.[6] The Elms has been designated a National Historic Landmark and today is open to the public. (source: wikipedia)

(There was one time that The Hubsy and I went to The Elms with my friends from Canada…)

(And sometimes, I get a little crazier than the usual… LOL)

BTW, I’ve been thinking of getting a new camera lately. Maybe I should just sell my old one and get a new one. Maybe…

The trip to Portsmouth, New Hampshire last week was not what I’ve expected. First, I’m not a big fan of snow. It was only lately that I get to buy winter jackets but when I was new here in USA I was so fashionably out of place during winter. How (the hell) would I know what to wear during winter season when I was born from a tropical country and resided in the Middle East for 4 years? But , I think after almost 6 years, I finally learn to dress up even if my heart was unwilling.

So I guess, I just need to go back to New Hampshire when its warmer.

Keep smiling everyone! Life is good (even during winter season!) Xx
