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…

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…

June 27th, 2018

 I am so excited about today’s post! First off, I’d like to thank Country Club Prep for making this exciting giveaway possible but before I go into any more details on that, let’s jump into a little behind the scenes and what a day at Groton Long Point looks like.

No matter what time of day or day of the week, each time I visit I’m guaranteed to look…

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….

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…

Summer Wedding Guest Dress

June 15th, 2018

Tis the season for weddings, especially here in New England, and while I’m not personally attending any big weddings this year, I figured I’d play dress up and show you my go-to event outfit. Whether it’s a wedding, polo-match or brunch at the Ocean House I love getting to dress up and style dresses that I normally wouldn’t wear on a daily basis. Okay, now when purchasing a dress for an event I always try to purchase styles that can be dressed up or down depending on the type of event I’ll be attending. I do this so…

A New Englander’s Guide to Newport, RI

June 13th, 2018

It’s June in New England which means one thing and one thing only, it’s officially road trip season! Actually, I think an element that makes New England unique in and of itself, is how easy it is to jump into a car and explore picturesque New England towns without breaking the bank. Last weekend, my sister/photographer Tessa, and I decided to capture one of our favorite New England cities, Newport Rhode Island!  I honestly don’t know where to start, Newport has so much to offer, but let’s just start with a little background, shall we? Originally found in…

Visitng The Green Animals Topiary Garden, in Rhode Island

June 10th, 2018

If you follow me on Instagram, and if you don’t you should be, then you already know that this past weekend Tessa and I headed to Newport, Rhode Island, for a little adventure. Now we’ve been to Newport a few times before and had done a lot of the typical tourist attractions like touring the mansions and taking a plunge at first beach; sooooo when we made plans to visit Newport again, we wanted to explore an attraction neither of us had seen prior. Long story short, that’s how we found ourselves at The Green Animals Topiary Garden.  The Green Animals…

5 Pizza Places to Visit in Connecticut

April 20th, 2018

I was inspired to create this post, last week when Matt and I were in Dallas. We were chatting with some friends and they wanted to know, besides seafood, what was the best dish to order in New England. Valid question right and  I quickly realized no one does pizza like New England, well besides Chicago, so I told her to give me a week and I’d report back with a whole list.  Once I finalized my list, I decided I might as well share it with all of you and all I can say is, I miss New…

History & Cultural Heritage of New England

January 19th, 2018

New England is deeply rooted in history and cultural heritage, which has made capturing it on the TCC all that more fun. I mean, from the pilgrims that came ashore in Massachusetts to the summer homes of America’s infamous business moguls and heirs of the Gilded Age in Newport; New England is bursting at the seams with untold stories and colonial homes to be explored. The historical towns of New England, with each passing photoshoot, have proven to be deeply rooted in the start of our nation and the hopes of a new life. To be honest, I…
