How To Maneuver Stressful Situations In A Relationship

October 1st, 2018

The reason why I love living in New England has a lot to do with its seasons and constant sense of change in the air. Like life, New England knows how to keep you on your toes. You see some seasons are exciting and filled with wonder, like autumn, and yet some seasons are bleak, ugly and just unbearable to work with; like shooting pictures in muddy spring. All and all a New Englander Yankee sense of dealing with what life or New England has to throw at them, has been a key factor in how Matt and…

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…

Apple Picking in Fairfield County, Connecticut

September 17th, 2018

You haven’t experienced a true New England fall until you’ve ventured out to one of our many apple orchards to partake in the longstanding tradition of apple picking. This past weekend my sister, Mom and I headed into New York City to look at colleges; and decided to make a pit stop at an infamous apple orchard in Fairfield County. We aren’t often down in Fairfield County, so I was eager to take advantage of our location and taste test a couple freshly baked cider donuts.  We drove from Stamford to Shelton and easily found the farm sitting upon…

Why A Quilted Long Coat is The Ideal Transitional Fall Jacket

September 14th, 2018

While it’s not the official start of Fall yet, New England’s recent brisk weather has made it feel more like mid-October than the balmy Septembers we’ve had in the past.

The last time I had a chance to visit Providence was way back in 2011, so we knew a short trip up there was long overdue, for all of us. After a quick pit stop, or two, to grab breakfast and coffee, our little crew was on our way to the capital of Rhode Island. We had so much fun exploring the different regions Providence has to offer and even made a last minute…

Labor Day Weekend & Best Labor Day Sales

September 2nd, 2018

      Labor Day Weekend is my favorite three day weekend of the year because it signifies the start of school and most importantly the anticipation of fall. Now while I’m no longer a student, I’m a huge fan of creating and maintaining a routine which can be tricky during the summer. But with all the kiddos back in school and work-related travel slowing down, I’m excited to get more settled in Connecticut and continue our home search.    Now I had quite a busy weekend with Tessa as we explored Fairfield County and continued her college search.

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…
