After a summer of sunny, 90 degree weather, I had a feeling our wedding day wouldn't be like that. I woke up with it being overcast and misting outside. That morning Emily and I decided to get coffee and take a walk around Mirror Lake. We walked the lake and ended up meeting my mom [...]
The bump finally arrived in my second trimester! I started needing maternity pants and luckily I'm still able to fit into some of my shirts. The pic above was taken on Thanksgiving day towards the end of my 2nd trimester at 26 weeks. Although this year has been crazy - planning a wedding and a [...]
This pregnancy has flown by so far! I’m already 22 weeks along, so I wanted to start documenting it before it’s over. My friend Megan took these pictures when Lance and I first found out I was pregnant. I’m so glad she was able to capture this sweet moment for us.
Happy Friday guys! It's supposed to be such a nice weekend but SO hot. 100 degrees on Sunday! We never get this type of weather in the Adirondacks, so it will definitely be a change! I've been looking up recipes for how to make homemade ice cream 1.) For all the strawberries I picked last [...]
Let's be honest...choosing our wedding menu was my favorite part of wedding planning so far! You guys know I looove food, so I couldn't wait to pick out the appetizers, salad, dinner and wedding cake with Lance. We had our tasting a couple of weeks ago at the Lake Placid Lodge, where our reception will be [...]
What I'm looking forward to in June: weekly farmer's markets, visits to camp, strawberry picking, a trip to Shelburne Farms, and of course, soft served ice cream!
Last week my friend and I headed to Pure Placid to attend a Flower Arrangement Workshop taught by Linda D'Arco, owner of Little Farmhouse Flowers. I was so excited for this event simply because having fresh flowers on my kitchen table makes me so happy. Flowers add so much life to an environment by creating joy, adding interest and making everyday special. Not to mention, a fresh bouquet of flowers is a great way to re-fresh for spring. Last year I saw Little Farmhouse Flowers at our local Farmers Market in Keene Valley with the most beautiful bouquets, so I was thrilled when I saw Pure Placid was hosting this event for their Wellness Wednesday's series.
Mother's Day is a little over a week away (Sunday, May 13th), and I though I'd share ways to celebrate this special day if you live near or far from your mom. I'm sharing what my sister's and I are doing for our mom for Mother's Day, plus including 10 other amazing ideas on how you can celebrate this special occasion!
I'm so excited for everything I have coming up this month! There's a lot of local events like a flower arrangement workshop, restaurant week and a book recommendation gathering I'm attending. It feels good to get out of the house an enjoy some fresh air, friends and local food!
Spring has arrived and it's woken me up from this funk I was in for a while. The weather was getting a bit depressing to be honest. I'm a winter person through and through (it's my favorite season), but spring couldn't come fast enough this year! In the Adirondacks we label spring as 'mud season', which is true, but there's so much more to spring than rain, mud and mild temps. Spring brings a new season, fresh beginnings, outdoor hikes, preparing the gardens, grilling, fresh bouquets of flowers and so much more. Here's my list for my top 10 ways to refresh for spring.
