Upcoming New England Fall Events, You’ll Want To Check Out

October 11th, 2018

Fall is not only the best time to visit New England, but it is also the busiest time for us local New Englanders! Between town fairs, the annual Head of Charles Regatta, cheering on the New England Patriots and ROOTING on the Boston Red Sox; weekend after weekend seems to fly by with non-stop festivities. Which got me thinking…when Matt and I first moved to Dallas , we were at a loss, come weekends, we had no idea what to do or where to go, and often found ourseleves missing out on events and fairs that we weren’t…

October 8th, 2018

We are officially in leaf peeping peak, here in New England and come Columbus Day weekend you’ll start to see buses full of leaf peepers traveling the scenic roads of New England throughout the month of October.

For some reason, leaf peepers will often start in Litchfield…

5 Wooden Bridges Worth Visiting in New England, This Fall

September 24th, 2018

This past weekend Matt and I decided to take a spontaneous trip up North, to New Hampshire to celebrate some good news and catch up with some old friends. A weekend away has been long overdue and we decided to really make a trip of it before life gets even crazier; by enjoying some of our favorite spots along the way. Selfishly enough, I knew this would be the perfect opportunity for pictures so I threw on this plaid double-breasted coat dress from Donna Morgan, packed up my vintage suitcase and hit the road running. For obvious reasons, fall…

A Tour of Stew Leonard’s, The Best Grocery Store in New England

September 4th, 2018

Today is a very exciting day because I’m bringing you all along on a tour of Stew Leonard’s, the best grocery store New England has to offer. Stew Leonard’s has the same customer service and dedication to the customer’s experience as Trader Joe’s yet packs in what feels like double the food options with a larger selection of locally grown produce and a full-service deli, butcher and fish station. Not to mention, comparable to Trader Joe’s, Stew Leonard’s has an amazing in-house brand, with items like Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, and Rainbow Bagels flying out the…

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…

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…

New Englander’s Guide to Hydrangeas

May 28th, 2018

You know it’s summertime in New England when the hydrangeas start to bloom, and boy are they beautiful this year. The other day I posted this picture of hydrangeas on Instagram and instantly got an overwhelming amount of responses and DM’s asking me about the do’s and don’ts of hydrangeas. Now instead of responding to everyone’s questions individually, I figured I’d throw together this post as a sort of a New Englander’s Guide to Hydrangeas for you all to reference and have for years to come.  Now let’s start this post off with a disclaimer, by no means…

15 Patriots Bars Across 15 Cities, To Watch The Super Bowl At

February 2nd, 2018

Just like that Matt and I are leaving Dallas and heading out to San Francisco to capture, what I believe is, one of the prettiest cities in America. Not only was this weekend the perfect weekend to get away, it also happens to be Super Bowl weekend…LET’S GO PATRIOTS! To be honest, at first Matt was hesitant about traveling on such an important weekend, but I insisted that no matter the city, Patriot fans are in it to win it. Hopefully literally.

Guide to Driving in the Snow

January 21st, 2018

This post has been long overdue, I mean with the number of snow-covered roads New Englanders have already navigated this year, I feel like this post had to get published sooner than later. While I’ve been openly accepting and appreciating the beautiful snowy scenes, this winter has thrown at us, I’ll never be laissez-faire about having to drive, in the snow. I initially wanted Matt to write this post because he has a lot more experience when it comes to driving in winter conditions, but due to his busy schedule (he’s too much) I’m here to share the…
