Canadian New Year

My boyfriend lives in Canada. I know, bummer right? Although his move back home hasn’t been easy, mini trips to see him and vacations there have certainly helped. Originally from Quebec, he wanted to show me his home province during its most magical time, the winter holiday season. With only a week to get everything in and dodge the brutal cold we spent as much time, as we could tolerate, walking through the streets of Montreal and sitting in its warm bars and cafes.

Unfortunately, it was so cold that most of my days involved layering and bundling up to the point that I couldn’t get dolled up for our outings. My hair was constantly flattened by hats and my face was mostly covered with a mega scarf — he called it, “the ski look”. But despite that, I had the time of my life. Montreal and Quebec City have amazing architecture and culinary experiences and I am so excited to return…in the summer. 😉

So, happy New Year from us. We hope that 2018 brings so many blessings and lots of prosperity!

Resolutions in Decor!

Here we are in the beginning of a brand-new year with so many opportunities to make new decisions and lifestyle changes. As we grow and change, it’s important to make sure our personal space and atmosphere reflect the changes in our lives. So this year I’d like to think about making a resolution in decor. An office space is invaluable to anyone. It should permit comfort but also help generate creativity. Using Wayfair, I found the perfect pieces to create an in-home office space. Look at some of them below!

I enjoy many differing styles and would love for an intimate space, such as an office, to incorporate bold colors and reflect my innermost self. But I can confidently say that such a space would need to be very clean and light to help me keep an open mind — beginning each day with a blank slate.

A White Christmas

This holiday season was nothing short of amazing. We finally got our white Christmas and we owe it partially to the fact that we left the slightly warmer climate of Maryland. (Emphasis on slightly) A longer car ride than we would have preferred later, we arrived in Freeport, Maine. Known as the birthplace of L.L. Bean, the darling town is even more picturesque when covered in a blanket of white. Sprinkled with inns and bed&breakfasts there are numerous places to find lodging, but we were so lucky to have stayed in the L.L Bean House at The Harraseeket Inn.  Check out some of the images of below!

The views were seriously postcard worthy.
