It’s time to Go Wild!

Each and every year that I have been writing this blog I have written about The Greenwich Land Trust‘s Go Wild! Family Field Day. And the reason is because it’s AWESOME! It is without a doubt our children’s favorite day of the fall. There are pony rides, petting zoos, bungee trampolines, food, music, hot air balloon rides, and so much more. The event takes place this Sunday (September 25th) at the beautiful Greenwich Polo Fields in Conyers Farm between 3pm and 6pm. It’s a great event to bring out of town visitors to as well. The Greenwich Land Trust now preserves more than 745 acres of green space in our community. In a relatively small town like Greenwich, where real estate development happens at a rapid pace, this is no small feat. I couldn’t be more proud to be involved with this non-profit that helps to keep our community green.

We have been chipping away at small projects over here at our house. As we think about the end look we are hoping to achieve, I love finding inspiration on the web. Sarah Bartholomew was featured in Southern Living recently. Her Nashville home is perfection. I love everything from the color patterns to the decorative… read more

Obsessed With: Podcasts

featured

When I finally started listening to podcasts I felt sheepish that it had taken me so long to clue in to this awesome phenomenon. The simple explanation for those who haven’t tried them is that they are digital audio files that you can download to your smartphone, laptop or iPad. And there are literally podcats on… read more

Always Remember: September 11th

featured

It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since the World Trade Center came down and almost 3,000 lives were lost to the horrors of terrorism and hatred. I feel confident in saying that those of us who lived through those terrifying days after the attacks will never forget. But for those who lost a husband, wife,… read more

Fall Fashion: Loving Clogs

featured

Many of you will remember a few years back when I bought myself white Birkenstocks to my husband John’s deep dismay. I can happily report that those shoes became and have stayed my most worn shoes in warmer seasons. They are heaven on the feet and I think they look pretty cute too. John never… read more

Words of Wisdom: Summer 2016

f1

I am 100% in complete denial about summer being over. I’ll miss the lazy mornings, night swimming, over-eating, under-dressing, and just about every other good thing that comes with this season. I have always had a tough time transitioning from season to season. I’m doing my best to smile through it. These wise words are keeping… read more

Great Book: When Breath Becomes Air

featured

I ordered When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi, when it was first printed last year, but held off on reading it until this summer. Knowing that it was a heavy read about a neurosurgeon who quickly and brutally loses his fight with stage 4 cancer I wanted to make sure I read it when… read more

Best Buys: Green Mountain Coffee

Like Goldilocks I am always on the hunt for a coffee that is just right. Not too weak, but not too bold… This summer I have been totally digging Green Mountain Coffee‘s “breakfast blend”. The company was founded by Robert Stiller, who was vacationing in VT 30 years ago and wandered into a mom and pop… read more

From time to time I get a text from a friend asking what I think are the best gifts for kids – age 6, 7, 8, 10, etc. This gift, Snap Circuits Jr., was sent to us by Emma’s (my 8 year old) godmother. It has provided us with hours of fun. JT (my 19… read more
