Just Peachy

Seasonal activities never get old to me. Here in central Maryland we have a local farm, Weber’s Peachberry Farm, great for gathering the bounty of almost every season. This late July brought several varieties of peaches and I was all too happy to spend an early Saturday morning picking as many as my little heart […]

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!

Falling into Autumn

I don’t necessarily have a favorite season because every season brings the excitement for new activities and opportunities to have fun with family and friends. From apple orchards in Maryland to trails on the Ottawa/Quebec border, this fall has been fulfilling in the best of ways. Weber’s Farm Apple Picking Canadian Adventure & Country Living

The Essentials

Everyone has their go-to pieces and accessories — things that when melded really play a part in defining their style. If you take a quick flip through my Instagram, hopefully you can get a good sense of who I am and my preferences when it comes to dressing and accessorizing. There are pretty much four staples to my attire; things you’ll always see me wearing and things I live and swear by: a quilted jacket, cat eye shades, houndstooth, and pearls. I wanted to put my images  in different sections but so often you see me wear my go-to items together that I thought maybe just placing all the shots below would be easier not only for me but for you all to see how I like to wear them!
