Garlic and Herb Tomatoes by Ina Garten

I love watching cooking shows. Currently, I’m obsessed with Chef’s Table on Netflix. It’s one of the most inspiring documentary series I’ve ever seen. The show highlights renowned chefs from around the globe and the way that it’s shot and produced is something so extraordinary and magical. It’s very cinematic and the storytelling of each chef’s struggles … More Garlic and Herb Tomatoes by Ina Garten

A Day in the City

It’s hard to believe that the weather lately has been so frigid cold. Last month, we’ve had days in the 60’s where some light layering was enough to keep you comfortable. Luckily, the stars and moon aligned when my sisters came to visit back in February and the weather was just that— perfect in the 60’s! I … More A Day in the City

Hands Full

The struggle is real. There is a challenge balancing the many duties that we have as women at home & in the corporate world. For me, juggling both mommyhood & work although feels tough and impossible at times— makes me whole. I don’t feel complete without both. They feed off one another. Imagine dealing with a tantrum toddler … More Hands Full

White Mani

Hello! Hope you had a great holiday weekend! I’m going to keep this post very short and sweet. Just sharing a white mani that I recently wore… Nothing makes me feel more well-kept than having my nails done. I’m not really obsessed with anything else but if my nails are not trimmed and polished, it … More White Mani

Snow Day

Today was an official snow day for us. The office shut down and the schools were closed. However, the hubs went to work because he works at the hospital and it never closes. I had to spend the day solo with the littles which makes me a little nervous. Lately, there has been a lot of terrible two … More Snow Day

I’ve been so blessed to finally found what seems to be the job of my dreams. Ever since joining J. Jill as Art Director, I look forward to going into the office … More Life and Lattes

Reflecting on 2016

It has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding year of my life so far. I have to say 2016 was the year that I truly understood the power of human connection. I started the year off a bit (actually, a whole lot) uncertain of where my professional life would take me. Throughout my … More Reflecting on 2016

Christmas Prep

Around this time of the year, Zoey and Axel know that Santa and his elves are working overtime to wrap and deliver presents to kids who are nice on Christmas eve. At our home, we are also prepping for Santa’s arrival. Our Christmas tree went up the week before Thanksgiving and the littles were overjoyed to help decorate. … More Christmas Prep

The Mini-Luxuries

Isn’t life about the little things? The simple touches, the small acts of kindness, the subtle ways to express that you care- they’re all a big part of our happiness. For me, it’s the little quiet moments that I can steal for myself- listening to French Jazz, blogging, polishing my nails, flipping catalogs, sipping lattes, … More The Mini-Luxuries

Mini Pear Pies

I love warm desserts as much as sipping lattes in the fall. The house smells amazing when there’s something sweet baking in the oven. Our Saturdays are usually filled with adventures and we’d be gone for most of the day. During this time of year, we’ll take the kids to farms for pumpkin and apple … More Mini Pear Pies
