Creating A Morning Routine Even If You’re Not A Morning Person

August 31st, 2018

[outfit details] I mean, there is no hiding that I’m not a morning person. I have never been and never will be and I’m very self-aware of that; however, over the past few months, I started to find myself waking up on the wrong side of the bed morning after morning. I often found myself waking up around 8:00 AM already with a sense of not having enough time in the day to accomplish what needs to be done. Now part of that has to do with how busy I’ve been with work and work-related travel, but a…

Home Runs, Feeling at Home and Camaraderie

August 20th, 2018

Camaraderie is one of my favorite words in the English dictionary, simply because it’s used to describe a variety of situations. It can be applied as an adjective to describe a college’s student body, or a verb to describe an ideal workplace attitude, OR simply a feeling of belonging. I mean, we all want to feel like we belong and make an impact, am I right? But the essence of camaraderie is much more than just being somewhere, it’s actually investing yourself in where you are and belonging to something bigger than yourself, like sports. Too many people watching…

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

August 13th, 2018

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 our first potential home, part one of many.  But before I get any further into this…

Big News Along Side An Even Bigger Move…

July 25th, 2018

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 announcement once we were officially moved out of our apartment in Dallas and back in Connecticut…

Being Patient With The Process

June 18th, 2018

There is A LOT going on in my life at the moment, which sounds so dramatic but it’s a lot of really exciting things, that I can’t wait to open up and share with you all soon! But until then I wanted to sit down, clear my mind and kind of vent about the all too real-life lesson, these big ventures have taught me, but to put it simply, these experiences have truly taught me how to be patient with the process.  You know how people always say patience is a virtue, well they weren’t kidding. By nature…

Turning Twenty Four

May 31st, 2018

  Today is my Twenty Fourth birthday and to be honest as I look around, I never thought Matt and I would be where we are now. I mean, it has been a YEAR, to say the least. I usually like to share five things I’ve learned in my annual birthday posts but for a while there I debated not doing it. Twenty-three has been the definition of a hot mess but traditions are meant to be upheld no matter the circumstances, so let’s jump right in shall we! Here are five things I’ve learned from being twenty-three.  You’ll…

Why I Felt Insecure at The Beach, And How I Found My Confidence

May 21st, 2018

Whether we are talking about food, movies or even bathing suits one thing is for sure, I know what I like and I stick to it, end of story. Call it being stubborn, boring or self-aware, in the end, I always choose the food I know I’ll like, no vegan food here, the movies I know won’t give me nightmares, and the fit of a suit that will make me feel confident and covered on the beach. I mean trends are great for inspiration and adaptation but feeling confident is all about having the right fit, am I…

An Introvert Guide To Maneuver a Week-Long Group Vacation

April 26th, 2018

I’ve always been a huge fan of personality tests, and I know I’m not alone here. If you’ve never taken a personality test before stop what you are doing and take this test real quick. The first time I ever took a personality test was for one of my management classes in business school and to say it’s enlightening is an understatement. I’ve actually had the same personality type since I took the test way back in 2012, and each time I reread my personality description it’s like hitting the nail on the head. Now whether you love…

How To Feel A Part of A City, While Being A Tourist

January 26th, 2018

2018 is our year of travel and I know I’ve probably already stated that about fifteen times, but Matt and I are sooooo excited to travel as much as possible this year and to bring you all along. As some of you might know, Matt was assigned to work as an account manager in a Dallas office for two years, and with only six months left, we are really trying to cram in as many experiences as possible, before settling down back in New England.   We kicked off our year of travel first with Central Connecticut, then Vermont…

Why You Need Renters Insurance

January 17th, 2018

Oh boy.  It’s been a while since I’ve had time to just sit down and unload the current situation Matt and I have found ourselves in. To be honest, it feels good to hit the pause button on New England content for a second and fill you all in on what has been the craziest start to 2018. Our TCC Crew jumped head first into 2018, aka our year of travel, by booking three trips in the next three months. Remember when I talked about using our vacations days and being over-ambitious in this post; well I 100% overbooked our…
