Apple Picking in Fairfield County, Connecticut

September 17th, 2018

You haven’t experienced a true New England fall until you’ve ventured out to one of our many apple orchards to partake in the longstanding tradition of apple picking. This past weekend my sister, Mom and I headed into New York City to look at colleges; and decided to make a pit stop at an infamous apple orchard in Fairfield County. We aren’t often down in Fairfield County, so I was eager to take advantage of our location and taste test a couple freshly baked cider donuts.  We drove from Stamford to Shelton and easily found the farm sitting upon…

A Taste Of Fall, In Providence Rhode Island

September 10th, 2018

  This past Saturday Matt, Tessa and I jumped into our car and drove straight to Providence, Rhode Island for a day of exploring. The last time I had a chance to visit Providence was way back in 2011, so we knew a short trip up there was long overdue, for all of us. After a quick pit stop, or two, to grab breakfast and coffee, our little crew was on our way to the capital of Rhode Island. We had so much fun exploring the different regions Providence has to offer and even made a last minute…

Strolling Through Stonington

August 27th, 2018

Last Friday my sister, mom and I decided to take a spontaneous road trip down to a town we’ve all been dying to explore, Stonington Connecticut. This specific town has been on my, to-do list for a while because you all know I love exploring the nooks and crannies of New England. In fact last summer we drove all the way down towards Stonington in hopes of shooting summer content, only to find ourselves lost and in Rhode Island, equally scenic enough. Soooo map in hand and ice coffees in cupholders we embraced on an hour ride towards…

A Weekend On Nantucket

August 15th, 2018

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 be here, she’s a New England content creator and also co-founder of RPR, an influencer management…

My Dream New England Beach House Town…

July 23rd, 2018

      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 shirt, I’m wearing. This blouse has to be one of the most…

Come To, Lavender Pond Farm, In Killingworth Connecticut

July 18th, 2018

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. I’m a huge fan of lavender, and how versatile the plant is, in fact, I’m such a huge fan I had Tessie plant a few lavender bushes in our garden, which you can see in our ‘what to plant in a New England summer garden’ video here.  Okay now I’m a huge consumer of lavender whether I’m spraying…

Blueberry Picking in New England

July 11th, 2018

  Blueberry picking is a longstanding summer tradition for my family and I; and to be honest, nothing is more rewarding than grabbing an empty pail and heading into the fields. On this particular day, the Rose’s Berry Farm crew was kind enough to let me squeeze in some last minute scavaging time for ripe berries before shutting down for the afternoon, due to heat. I climbed the blueberry hill with Tessie until we came upon the plumpest and fullest blueberry bushes we could find. Now while raspberries are my official favorite summer berry, blueberries are a close…

The Best of Connecticut’s Scenic Summer Routes, Fourth of July Road Trip

July 6th, 2018

I can’t believe this week marks the first of July, and with so much going on, and with big travel plans in the works, I’m looking forward to taking a step back and enjoying the best scenic routes Connecticut has to offer. This past weekend,  I was bogged down with the summer bug, so I’m extra eager to make the most of the beautiful weather we’ll see and hit the open road to explore. Whenever I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed,  I like to get outside of myself and hit the drive the quaintest of Connecticut’s Scenic Summer Routes with…

Exploring Bowen’s Wharf

June 25th, 2018

Nothing is more soothing and exciting than the hustle and bustle of Bowen’s Wharf come summertime. In fact, if you asked me to describe Newport, Rhode Island to you, the first thing that comes to my mind is the historic wharves and all they have to offer. So, I was ecstatic when Tessa and I had enough time on our previous trip to Newport, to clock out early and enjoy a leisurely ‘linner’ at Bowen’s Wharf.   The stunning 18th-century brick wharf buildings, bring you instantly back to Bowen’s start as a thriving seaport in colonial New England….
