A Berry Good Day…

When it comes to preparing for the Summertime, there are a few activities in and around the New England area that never fail to truly get me into the seasonal spirit- and not all of them involve piling into the car for an impromptu beach day (although that’s definitely high up on the list.) Outdoor […]

Frolicking and Food Trucks…

With May kicking off this past Saturday, I was delighted to wake up that morning to find a blue, sunny sky greeting me. I had plans to take some photos with my friend/neighbor/photographer, Dan, so having lots of natural light- and no rain!- would make for some great pictures and no hassle. Granted, it was […]

A Month to Remember: November 2020

Time has been nothing short of an illusion in 2020, often feeling like it dragged on for an eternity when all the days- each very similar to the one before it in this age of quarantines and lockdowns- seemed to blend together into one continuous loop. As the end of the year gets closer and […]

This can range anywhere from products I discovered, random things I purchased, gifts I received- to music, games or television shows I got hooked […]

Birthday Wishes…

Having a birthday in the middle of a work week, in the middle of Winter- in the middle of New England- and right smack in the middle of adulthood can seem a bit unceremonious. Sure, I could have taken a full day off from the office this past Wednesday and slept in- but then what? […]

OOTD: The Teddy Bear Coat…

For as long as I can remember, wool peacoats have been my default outerwear every Winter. Growing up in Massachusetts, they just seemed to be the most sensible thing to put on- heavy, durable, and able to wear over even the puffiest of sweaters without busting the buttons. I’ve owned them in nearly every color […]
