What an exciting and busy week ahead for all of us. If you follow me over on Instagram, then you already know I’m currently flying home for Thanksgiving. This week can be slightly hectic, to say the least, so I wanted to sit down and whip up a mindful blog post for you all.

I know most of you are probably en route to friend’s or family’s houses and running around like crazy getting last minute items for your own Thanksgiving day feast. This is a jam-packed week, we have Thanksgiving Day, not to mention Thanksgiving Day football along with Black Friday shopping and traveling to boot. All in all, I wanted to take a second and write down 7 New England Holiday Traditions I’m Thankful For,

In-Flight Travel Essentials

Location  •   Logan Airport, MA

Packing use to be something I honestly dreaded, but now it seems like a monthly chore. Since graduating college, almost two years ago, I’ve become quite the little traveler. I split my time between New England (for work) and Dallas (for Matt), which means a lot of late night flights and drives to the airport. I’ve actually been to the Dallas airport six times this month, so sometimes it feels like my second office. 

Now that I’m traveling more and more I’ve put a packing system in place that…

After visiting Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates my Mom and I drove over to Sunset Meadow Vineyards in Goshen, CT to see what it was all about.

November is my favorite time to bundle up in layers and head outside to roast some s’mores with my youngest sister Tessa. In fact, we did exactly that this past weekend! We pulled on our holiday socks and spent over three hours outside in freezing November air, which you can see in this blog post here. However recently it’s gotten a little too cold to cozy up by the fire,…

Last week, I woke up to an unusually warm November day and called up my Mom to see if she wanted to hit the road to explore. She agreed and we took about an hour ride up to Goshen, CT. In the past, I had heard wonderful things about the little town of Goshen, but most importantly, I heard word of a farm and chocolate factory that I had to see with my own two eyes. 

So yes, I drove an…

To be honest, I’m officially in the holiday mode which means spending time and making time to appreciate family and friends. No matter how spread out my family is, or the TCC Crew, this time of year is all about cozying up to the fire in the cutest holiday socks…am I right! 

This year I really wanted to go into this holiday season prepared and hopefully less stressed than previous years. At the end of the day, I want to make lasting…
