November 5th, 2018

This week, I wanted to sit down with you all and share one of my favorite towns in all of Connecticut, in fact, it’s the town where I grew up and a town I try to visit quite often Glastonbury Connecticut. With the holiday season upon us, I can’t help but reminisce on past holiday seasons and the joyful times I’ve had exploring Glastonbury Connecticut. From running, errands with my Mom, or sneaking trips in to visit Matt, this little New England town is so special to me and I always try to carve time out of my…

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…

Strolling Through Stonington

August 27th, 2018

Last Friday my sister, mom and I decided to take a spontaneous road trip down to a town we’ve all been dying to explore, Stonington Connecticut. This specific town has been on my, to-do list for a while because you all know I love exploring the nooks and crannies of New England. In fact last summer we drove all the way down towards Stonington in hopes of shooting summer content, only to find ourselves lost and in Rhode Island, equally scenic enough. Soooo map in hand and ice coffees in cupholders we embraced on an hour ride towards…

Come To, Lavender Pond Farm, In Killingworth Connecticut

July 18th, 2018

Today I’m bringing you all to one of my favorite places to visit this time of year, Lavender Pond Farm. You might remember seeing Lavender Pond Farm in this blog post from a few years back, and oh how the farm has grown. I’m a huge fan of lavender, and how versatile the plant is, in fact, I’m such a huge fan I had Tessie plant a few lavender bushes in our garden, which you can see in our ‘what to plant in a New England summer garden’ video here.  Okay now I’m a huge consumer of lavender whether I’m spraying…

Blueberry Picking in New England

July 11th, 2018

  Blueberry picking is a longstanding summer tradition for my family and I; and to be honest, nothing is more rewarding than grabbing an empty pail and heading into the fields. On this particular day, the Rose’s Berry Farm crew was kind enough to let me squeeze in some last minute scavaging time for ripe berries before shutting down for the afternoon, due to heat. I climbed the blueberry hill with Tessie until we came upon the plumpest and fullest blueberry bushes we could find. Now while raspberries are my official favorite summer berry, blueberries are a close…

5 Pizza Places to Visit in Connecticut

April 20th, 2018

I was inspired to create this post, last week when Matt and I were in Dallas. We were chatting with some friends and they wanted to know, besides seafood, what was the best dish to order in New England. Valid question right and  I quickly realized no one does pizza like New England, well besides Chicago, so I told her to give me a week and I’d report back with a whole list.  Once I finalized my list, I decided I might as well share it with all of you and all I can say is, I miss New…

The historical towns of New England, with each passing photoshoot, have proven to be deeply rooted in the start of our nation and the hopes of a new life. To be honest, I…
