In Le Jardin!

Do you have a green thumb? It’s about that time of year where yard and garden envy begins. There’s nothing like a well manicured lawn and bonus points if you maintain a garden of any sort. As a person who aspires to eat homegrown, the idea of growing my own fruits, vegetables and herbs is…

Rebirth: Spring is Here

Happy Spring & Happy Easter, my friends. Oh, how I delight in the budding plants and flowers as Spring peeks it head out after an icy, cold and wet winter. The blog is undergoing lots of changes so we’ll continue our conversation on color through April as well as tackling Spring cleaning, quarterly purging and…

Something Old, Something New: Happy 2015

This time is of year is always full of mixed feelings for me. The rich anticipation of the new year is arched by a slight melancholy towards the ending of the old year. All the resolutions, to-do lists and goals of 2014 are either restfully satisfied or hang in the balance waiting to be completed. The new…

Breathing Space

I am a long time reader of O, Magazine founded by the incomparable Oprah Winfrey. One of the features I have always looked forward to in the magazine is the full page spread titled Breathing Space. It’s not a story or feature article. It is always simply a high resolution image of heavenly scenery or landscape…

It’s Summer Time!

Dear Readers– It’s been so long! This is possibly the longest break I have taken from the blog. But, all is well. I am settling into a new phase and journey of life and it’s the greatest gift. As a new wife and step-mom, I am finding my groove and discovering new things about myself…

In Full Bloom!

Well, it has been quite a ride as we made our way through the New Year, abnormally cold weather, school closings and all sorts of twists and turns! As the weather starts to warm up (fingers crossed) and the plants ever so slightly start to bloom, we should take this time to jump start ourselves….

Let’s Start Together

Happy New Year! Everything is brand new again. I simply love the feeling of a fresh start and a chance to do everything better. If you are like most people, you’ve made a list of goals or resolutions to fulfill by year’s end. And if you have lived long enough, you probably realize that all…

Sweet November

The Fall season has officially set in. We’ve gained an hour in time, the leaves are at their peak color and we are anticipating all of the hustle and bustle that the holiday season will bring. November is basically the last month to sort out any goals or deadlines that you may want to complete…

Here’s To Life!

I recently celebrated my birthday (yesterday!) and realized how grateful I am for another year of life. I took some time to reflect that morning on all of my recent accomplishments as well as goals I am still working towards. This past weekend I had dinner with a dear friend of mine whom has an…

Ode to Autumn

Autumn, oh how I love thee. Let me count the ways; colorful leaves, brisk air, sweaters and jeans, cozy cardigans, boots, scarves, hats, warm and rich earth tones, hot apple cider, pumpkin spice….I could go on an on about my love of the Fall season. If you are like me then you are more than…

Are You Ready?

As the season winds down, we say a farewell to summer. We just celebrated Labor Day which is the last official summer holiday signaling an end and a beginning. Kids go back to school, works gets a little heavier and everyone starts to prepare for the 4th quarter of the year.  The holidays will be…
