A Tale of Pizza, Curly Hair and Live Music…

It has been a whirlwind week in what is shaping up to be a whirlwind month for me- and although my upcoming weekend is looking to be just as action-packed as the last few days, with time spent with friends, stopping by parties, attending music shows/festivals, etc., I’m hoping I’ll be able to find some […]

A Year to Remember: 2021

Happy New Year, everyone! Trying to compare 2021 and 2020 is like trying to compare apples and oranges. While 2020 was, undoubtedly, a year filled with trauma and devastating losses and plenty of uncertainty- 2021 saw some light at the end of the tunnel and some sporadic glimmers of hope throughout- even if we were […]

Christmas Cards and Charlie Brown Trees…

In my last post, I had talked about excitedly anticipating going to a holiday light display in Rhode Island this week, but of course- New England’s often unpredictable weather had other things in mind.

JUMANJI! When I launched “Coffee & Chiffon” on New Year’s Day this past January, I had the best of intentions and the most ambitious of goals. This year was the start of both a new decade and a new chapter in my life that I was excited to document on a brand new blog. I […]

Cold November Rain…

It’s been an absolutely crazy couple of weeks- and I’m not just talking about the lead-up to the election and the election results. It seems that the planets just aligned in recent days and brought me an abundance of surprises and opportunities- which has felt like such a rarity in 2020- and is something I […]

A Month to Remember: September 2020

“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” That’s a quote I’ve been thinking about quite often throughout this past month- although I honestly have no idea who originally said it and Google has provided little to no help whatsoever with my attempts to track down the author. I’ve found that when […]
