Location  •   Canton, CT

Thank you to New England Dairy for sponsoring this post. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that sneaks up on us New Englanders. With our seasonal landscape swaying, temps dropping, and all the holiday tidings in sight – if you’re like me, over the coming weeks you’ll be in full prep-mode for the holidays! Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving, traveling to see loved ones, or like me and just down the street from your family, there’s a lot to do for the holiday. Personally, I do not cook for Thanksgiving Day. My mom hosts the holiday every year! But, while I…

A New England Living Room Reveal

September 13th, 2022
Location  •   New England

I’m beyond excited to finally share our newly furnished living room! Curating the concept for this space took some time to brainstorm as we wanted to maximize seating in our deep, yet narrow living room. Let’s break down where each piece was purchased, how the layout works, and our overall inspiration for the space. I started with one goal: our living room must comfortably seat six! I have a large family and wanted enough room for people to gather without feeling crammed. We kept getting stuck on how to maximize seating while also making sure the pieces we…

Our Deck Reveal: Just In Time For July Fourth Weekend

June 30th, 2022

Thank you to New England Dairy for sponsoring this post. Each spring Matt and I dive into a home project as we continue to renovate our 1950’s New England Cape. In 2021, we tackled our upstairs multipurpose room – which is now one of our most used rooms in the house. And in 2020, it was our outdoor patio space that got a refresh. This year we had one project in mind: our deck! With the upcoming Fourth of July weekend – we knew the deck was an absolute must for us to entertain. When we initially took on our 2019…

Turning Twenty-Eight

June 28th, 2022

I’m embarrassed to admit how long it’s been since I posted an update for you all here. So, why not kick off my return with one of my favorite posts to write: My birthday post! Coming at you nearly 3-weeks late – my annual birthday recap is so special for me to look back on. You can look back here: turning twenty-two, turning twenty-four, turning twenty-five, and turning twenty-six. You might note, I skipped last year’s post on turning twenty-seven. Pausing and reflecting on the past is something that can be extremely overwhelming to me. Especially if I’m reflecting on…

2021: Year-End Review

January 1st, 2022
Location  •   New England

When the ball dropped in 2020, I headed into the new year with one intention in mind: RELEASE for 2021. And with that – it sure was a huge year of growth, trusting, and letting go. Before I dive right into this year-end review, I find it’s important to look back on what I wrote the year prior (which you can view here). Looking back, I find it so insightful to see how I reflected on 2020 and what I was hung up on or yearning to change with the coming new year. Traditionally, for my year-end review, I…

Fresh Wreaths At Fletcher Farm

December 11th, 2021
Location  •   New England

Thank you to New England Dairy for sponsoring this post. A tradition of mine is visiting different local farmstands each year. Fletcher Farm in Southampton, Massachusetts has been on my list of places to visit since they opened their newly renovated farmstand! So, since it’s the season for decking the halls, it was the perfect opportunity for my Mom and I to take an hour-long drive up to Fletcher Farm and grab some Christmas cheer. We of course had to stock up on wreaths, garland and some fa-la-la-holiday decor too! Fletcher Farm is a multi-generational family dairy farm. The heritage…

Matt and I always put our holiday decorations up the week of Thanksgiving. Traditionally, we’ve purchased our Christmas Tree from a local farm after turkey day.

Once we had our new faux tree in its place, Matt and I decided to head to Christmas Tree Shops to stock up on all things…
