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 […]
This spring, a certain dress from J. Crew has sent quite a few of us into a frenzy. Its simplicity and utter femininity have made it the perfect frock for a day of sightseeing or relaxing in a cafe. So many gravitated towards the popular seersucker but after trying on both, I decided the fire […]

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!
