We had a good idea of what kind of dining table end chairs we wanted and we couldn’t find them anywhere- at least for the right price. Sorry, I wasn’t going to splurge $800 on one chair. That’s nonsense. The criteria were that they had to be big, comfy, unique and wing-back. We finally found a … More DIY: Painted Wing-Back Chairs
The greatest pleasure about Spring is planning out our garden. Let me be clear, we live in the city with limited green space so when I say ‘garden’, I mean pots on the front doorsteps and a few bigger ones in our tiny backyard. I love the vibrant colors that flowers add to a space and … More A Sprinkle of Red
There is this special little nook in my dining room that gives me the warm fuzzies every morning. My cafe station is where I make the foamiest cup of decaf latte to start the day. I don’t drink coffee to wake me up, I drink it for the taste and experience. My sister who takes her coffee … More My Cafe Station

The French Girl. How does she manage to effortlessly sit at a cafe, sip that gorgeous cup of latte and people watch for hours on end- by herself? Her confidence and aura captivates any room. She is often seen strolling down the narrow alleyways with a bouquet of roses and a freshly baked baguette in her … More My Inner French Girl

Last year, I received a note from Lauren, the founder of Bond Twenty asking if I’d like to contribute to the site in some way. Initially, I didn’t pay much attention because in all honesty, I receive random emails to contribute all the time. I replied with a one snobbish sentence asking to see the site. … More Hello Bond Twenty!
Sometimes you just need to get away from the world and its bustling way of life. Creating your own retreat or hiding place where you can be alone to reflect, sip tea, or browse those catalogs that’s been collecting dust can be very therapeutic. Invite your imaginary friend or reserve another space for someone you … More Creating Your Own Sanctuary
Christmas came early with Eve and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Our bedroom has really become our family room- literally. We spend mornings in bed cuddling with the kids and watching their favorite shows. At night, there are bedtime stories and more of watching their favorite shows. The bed itself doubles as our ‘family couch’ … More Sleeping with Eve
Hope everyone is enjoy your Saturday! Tonight we are going to Boston’s first Christmas tree lighting celebration.

We don’t get to host Thanksgiving dinner as much as I’d like. Usually, we would travel out of state to either my family or the hubs’. This year, however, we are hosting for the second time- ever. It’s nice to start building holiday traditions with the kids. While it’ll be freezing outside, inside our kitchen … More DIY Holiday Ice Bucket

To a lovely Thursday! In Instagram news… 1. daily morning … More Smell the Roses
Halloween in our home is serious business. Probably just as serious as Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s not like we have a choice really- when there are over 3000 trick-or-treaters knocking on your door in a night, you’d better be ready. It’s also so much fun for the kiddos (secretly, I’m happy to be a kid again) to help … More Halloween at Home
Hello! Hope everyone is doing well. We’ve been away for my sister’s wedding and a trip to Disney. We had a fabulous time minus the few incidents when Axel had his tantrums. It’s so nice to be back home. A week long trip feels more than enough. Here are a few shots of the kiddos… … More A Wedding Affair
I can’t believe it has been exactly three years since we’ve gone to the annual Cranberry Festival. The drive back to the tiny town of Wareham was nostalgic. Last time, it was just the three of us- me, hubs, and Zoey. This time around, we have Mr. Axel joining us. Fall festivities in New England … More Cranberry Festival 2015
Mornings are by far my most favorite part of the day. It’s my catch up time with the things in life. Add a cup of milk tea or Vietnamese coffee and I’m golden. I love the quiet time before the chaos. You know- all the mommy duty stuff that needs to be done for the … More Mornings
If you haven’t eaten, I’m so sorry (#sorrynotsorry)! Today, it’s all about waffle dress-up. There’s a salty version and then a sweet one which means you can either have two individual servings (for you and a friend) or enjoy both all by yourself. The salty one can serve as your main breakfast meal and … More Waffle Two Ways
Luckily for Zoey and Axel, they have a lot of aunts. Like all five of them. Unfortunately, none of the aunts live close by but when they do get to spend time with the kids, it’s that much more precious and fun. I would like to say that Zoey enjoys all of her aunts’ company … More How to Totally Nail Being the “Cool Aunt”- guest post
