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. But for 2021, we decided to buy an artificial tree – so we could enjoy it longer – and for years to come! 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…

Everyone’s favorite New England season has finally arrived! While fall doesn’t officially start for a couple of weeks – the sun has begun to set earlier and the leaves are already showing their brilliant colors.

A Visit To Freund Farm in East Canaan

June 13th, 2021

Last month, my Mom and I drove to East Canaan to visit Freund Farm, a New England Dairy farm, we’ve been interested in checking out for over a year. As soon as we parked the car, I could tell getting to visit Freund Farm was worth the wait. We spent a good hour just exploring the blooming garden center filled with perennials, herbs, and hanging flowers. My mom and I also checked out their farm stand that was stocked with delicious treats, chicken pot pies, and planting supplies. Speaking of planting supplies, when we visited, it had just started warming…

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Entryway Space

April 30th, 2021

I always feel inspired to get things clean and tidy when spring comes around. This time of year often reminds me of fresh linens, fluffy throw pillows, sweet sunshine, and organized space. So I was ecstatic when I was able to team up with The Home Depot team again to share how to make the most of your entryway – just in time for spring cleaning! Overall the entryway is a space often overlooked and not optimized. It’s probably one of the spaces with the highest foot traffic in your home and if you’re a New Englander that…

A New Englander’s Multi-Purpose Room With The Home Depot

April 22nd, 2021
Location  •   Connecticut

When Matt and I moved into our New England fixer-upper back in 2018 we had a long list of projects to tackle. Over the past two years, we tackled the rooms we thought we’d spend the most time in – our kitchen and our master bedroom ensuite. We left rooms we thought we’d use less, like this multi-purpose room and our patio on the back burner. Not knowing that soon Matt and I would be spending a great deal of time at home. As 2020 came to a close, and after Matt spending an entire year working from…

Colonial Inspired Vases, Pots & Planters For Spring

April 21st, 2021
Location  •   New England

It’s official – spring! And we know that means spring florals like daffodils, dogwoods, and tulips are just around the corner. One of the first things I do when spring arrives is bring florals into the home. It’s my reward after a cold snow-filled winter. Last spring, I decorated my entire fireplace mantel with vintage pastel vases and daffodils. And ever since, one of my most frequently asked questions has been: Aubrey, ‘where are your floral vases, pots, planters, and dough bowls from?’ Well, I’m here to tell you! Living a New England lifestyle is seasonal. Meaning, it’s…

Location  •   Connecticut

Thank you Christmas Tree Shops andThat! for sponsoring this post. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but this past week has been unusually warm for us here in New England! With temperatures reaching the 50s and melting what’s left of the snow, I can’t help but see spring on the horizon. With warmer days in sight, my Mom and I decided to test out some springtime cake and cupcake decorating – just in time for Easter! My parents are hosting Easter in mid-March when my siblings come home from college. So, we recently decided to get a headstart…

How Matt Popped The Question, And I Said, “Yes!”

March 3rd, 2021

Proposal stories are some of my favorites to read! The other day I realized I never shared the story of exactly how Matt proposed to me back in October 2020. Since Fall is such an exciting and hectic time for both Matt and me, I didn’t get a chance to sit down and share the details – until now! I’m a big believer in better late than never. That’s why today I’m sharing with you how Matt popped the question and I (of course) said, “yes!” THE WEEKEND OF: The weekend of Matt’s proposal he decided to take…

2020 Year End Review

January 2nd, 2021

Before I sit down to write my year-end reviews, I always like to look back on what I wrote the year prior, which you can view here. It’s so insightful to see what I loved about the year prior and what I was hung up on or yearning to change with the coming of the new year. Looking back at what I wrote in 2019 has me feeling like hindsight is 2020, literally. 2019 was an extremely overwhelming year for me that had me aspiring for stillness and simplification in 2020. Ironically 2020 brought me more stillness and…
