Greetings From Schenectady!

Hello from New York, everyone! After rolling into town late Wednesday night while accompanying my friend Troy here for a work function he’s participating in, I’m going to be hanging around town (and if you’re having trouble pronouncing the name- no worries- I definitely am too!) and parts of Albany throughout this coming weekend. I’m […]

All the Fall Things…

Given my fully-packed schedule in the coming weeks (including dinner dates, trips to New Hampshire AND New York- and Football season, baby!)

The “I Do” Crew!

When my cousin Paige, who is really like more of a younger sister to me, asked me to be her Maid of Honor at the beginning of 2020 for her wedding she was planning for later that year- I think it’s safe to say that none of us anticipated what was going to come just […]

Tiptoe Through the Tulips…

While we were waiting for Spring-esque weather to arrive and actually hang around consistently here in New England, Summer just sort of crept up unexpectedly and proceeded to shove both Spring and all of us in the Northeast over within the span of a week or so. These past few days have been some of […]
