Fashion Fix: The Perfect Outfit for Travel

Every year around this time I love to post about the perfect travel outfit. In the dead of winter I always find my self dreaming of skipping off to some fabulous warm destination. I have a weekend away in the Dominican Republic next week, and then for spring break we head to Barbados with our kids… read more

Inspiration: From Hotel to Home

A beautiful hotel feels clean and fresh. A prefer a simple clutter-free space that allows room for relaxation and peace. With that in mind it’s not often that I feel inspired by hotel decor when working on my own home. Hotel interior design is usually less colorful and less layered than what I envision doing in our… read more

Dream Trip: Napa Valley

When you have young children, the holidays are incredible. They are also incredibly exhausting. Right about now an “adults only” vacation sounds heavenly. I’ve been dreaming of a romantic trip to Napa for years and it just hasn’t fit in the schedule to date. Based on the places I have checked out online I have… read more

Favorite Places: Manchester, VT

For as long as I can remember Manchester, VT has been my home away from home. My family owned a ski condo on Bromley Mountain when I was growing up and we spent almost every winter weekend there until I went away to college. My husband also feels incredibly connected to Manchester as his parents moved to… read more

Travel: Salt House Inn

I first read about this sweet little escape on the blog Design*Sponge. As we head into what is expected to be a very cold winter in the Northeast I am already dreaming about spring getaways. The Salt House Inn, both charming and completely under-embellished, would be ideal for a weekend away. Located in Provincetown, Massachusetts and… read more

London Calling

As a girl who has always lived close to home – I envy those who “cross the pond” to explore lands unknown. I recently spent an afternoon catching up with my friend Cathy Dishner who writes the blog Modern Expat Family. She regaled me with stories of her trials and tribulations after transporting her family… read more

S’mores anyone?

Two weeks ago we packed the kids into the car and headed Northeast for a weekend away. It was our first time in Cape Cod since a wedding years ago and I forgot how special the area is. I’m a sucker for a clam shack along a single-lane highway. I die for beach walks at… read more

Inspiration in unexpected places…

Last week Bromley Mountain in Vermont got 23 inches of powder – in March! That is one heck of a spring dumping. We skied our tails off this weekend. The minis were total troopers and we finished the season on a great note. Skiing is by far one of my favorite activities, and it’s a… read more

Five Friday Updates

THE GEL NAILS The gel manicure from this post – meh – could really take it or leave it. The issue is that I am a picker. Show me a pimple and I will show you how to pop it. A tangled necklace – I live to undo tricky knots. Same thing goes for chipping polish…… read more
