Our Empty House Tour, New England Fixer-Upper

November 19th, 2018

Recently Matt and I shared a HUGE announcement with you all, the purchase of our first home! We were beyond thrilled to finally share the news with all of you and just in case you missed it, you can read the announcement post here). Now since that announcement, our crew has been working endlessly on our newest Youtube series OUR HOUSE; which covers the entire restoration of our New England fixer-upper. Originally, my Mom and I toured our, now house, back in May before Matt and I had even finished the move. As soon as I stepped into the house…

We Purchased Our First Home & Giving Thanks

November 2nd, 2018

If you guys have been following along for the past few months then you know, Matt and I have been searching endlessly for our first home; and if you’ve missed all the home updates you can catch up with this post and this post. Together, Matt and I began our search for our first home back in May, and…with two VERY different visions of what we wanted in a home, our search differently had some highs and lows but it was all worth it in the end. All and all, today we are THRILLED to share the news…

PUMPKIN CARVING Q&A: Body Insecurities & Instagram Advice for 2018

October 31st, 2018

  Happy Halloween! Honestly, I’m not usually a spooky Halloween gal, but this year I really went above and beyond to embrace the holiday. You may have noticed things got a little dark over on our Instagram feed and maybe you even noticed the hints of orange speckled in between brown boarded homes. I mean, it’s as spooky as my New England feed will get but I think it’s better than nothing. All and all, my motivation for embracing this holiday comes back to my love for New England. Now that Matt and I are officially moved back,…

Dealing With The Pressure That Come With Content Creation

October 22nd, 2018

On average, I like to steer away from posts that could come off as complaining or ranting about my job or the blogging industry; because when push comes to shove I’m obsessed with this industry and my job. Not to mention I am beyond grateful to have readers like yourself, actually visiting my site and caring enough to read up on what’s going on, in my life and New England. With all that being said, this is a job and like any job, there is pressure, stress, and fear of failing; and I felt like it was about…

October 17th, 2018

It’s no secret that Matt and I have done our fair share of moving. Whether it was cross country to California, or in Matt’s case from the country to the busiest city known to man NYC; we seem to be packing up and moving almost bi-yearly. With our recent move back to New England we thought it was about time to share our tips five tips for moving to a new state.  In fact, did you know that I had never even visited Dallas until I moved there back in 2016!? Looking back on it now, moving to a…

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…
