Whether you’re heading back to a college campus or having to decorate an entirely new space, like Matt and I will be doing very shortly; finding affordable home decor can seem like an endless journey. But as many of you know, home decor is a passion of mine so I was ecstatic when this post was highly recommended and I went straight to work.

A Weekend On Nantucket

August 15th, 2018
Location  •   Nantucket

A few weekends back, I had the opportunity to visit Nantucket for the first time, on a PR trip with Popsugar. To say I was ecstatic is an understatement, as I’ve missed out on a few previous trips to Nantucket due to timing, travel, and moving. Yet, somehow the timing on this last moment trip worked out perfectly and in a blink of an eye, I was driving to Hyannis to catch the ferry with Robbin. If you don’t follow Robbin, you should…

Finding Our First Home & The Architectural Styles We’re Considering

August 13th, 2018
Location  •   New England

Oh boy, it’s been a weekend. To recap, this past weekend Matt and I looked at over ten homes, wow; and while that may seem like A LOT or maybe it seems like NOT ENOUGH, we’ve definitely made progress in our house hunting predicament. Truth be told, we might even be close to wrapping it up, well at least the touring part. Now before I get too ahead of myself, let’s talk a little bit about the emotions that have gone into finding…

Visiting The Amalfi Coast

August 7th, 2018
Location  •   Amalfi Coast

This post is long overdue and that’s mostly my fault but by no means was it intentional, I promise. I wasn’t planning on taking a break from blogging while traveling but was forced to, due to the fact that the internet was almost non-existent on our 9-day European cruise. I mean, it took me twenty minutes to upload an Instagram, so you can only imagine how irritating it was trying to upload videos, blog…

Location  •   Barcelona, Spain

Over the past ten days, my family, Matt and I have traveled all across Europe and have gotten just a taste of the rich history and culture this area of the world has to offer. Now I’m lucky enough to have visited many of these places prior to this trip, but we decided to kick off our trip with a location none of us had visited yet, Barcelona Spain.

Big News Along Side An Even Bigger Move…

Location  •   Dallas, TX

This post is the definition of a long time coming, and boy does it feel good to get this off my chest.  I wanted to tell you guys right away when Matt and I suddenly got the news of our move back in May, but there was still so much up in the air, and soooo many trips and events going on between then and now, that we put a pin in it. We figured we should hold off and make the…

Location  •   Fenwick, Connecticut

      I mean, I feel like this post would be a fun way to open up a very important conversation. This conversation topic is something I’ve methodically thought about over and over again until I knew my decision was certain. So here it goes, let’s discuss where you’d buy a New England beach house if the budget wasn’t an issue. Good question, right?   Okay, before we go down the rabbit hole and dig any deeper into this topic we need to discuss this gorgeous flutter sleeve…

Location  •   Lavender Pond Farms, CT

Today I’m bringing you all to one of my favorite places to visit this time of year, Lavender Pond Farm. You might remember seeing Lavender Pond Farm in this blog post from a few years back, and oh how the farm has grown.

Why I’ll Never Stop Blogging & Why I Love It

July 16th, 2018
Location  •   Fenwick, CT

You can thank Instagram’s innovative features for inspiring this blog post today. Last Monday I decided to try out Instagram’s new ‘ask me anything feature’ and while I wasn’t sure what type of questions I’d get, or if I’d get any, I was very surprised when I saw a bunch of blogging related questions roll in. I was shocked but thrilled because blogging means so much to me and…
