Fall is Matt and I’s favorite season – but it’s also our busiest! No matter how jam-packed our schedules get we always set aside at least one night a week for just us to enjoy. Since the weather is so perfect this time of year, there’s numerous options for outdoor date nights. So, I thought I’d share my tops picks for low budget fall-themed dates. Matt and I look forward to making fall memories every year! I hope our list inspires you. My favorite part of a fall-themed date is getting to dress cute and cozy for the cooler…

October 8th, 2019

Matt and I finally completed our indoor renovations! You can check out almost all of our projects from start to finish on our Youtube channel. Now, we’re on to exterior remodeling.Today we’re discussing our fall landscaping plan with you all!  Initial plans for the exterior renovation of our New England fixer-upper made me really worried. I’m generally aware of what I am good at and admit were my flaws my be. I have no issue creating interior spaces, building out closets, and shiplap-ing ceilings.  But, the idea of creating an entire landscaping plan was not in my capacity. That…

5 Noteworthy New England Leaf Peeping Stops

October 4th, 2019
Location  •   Dorset, Vermont

Today, we’re sharing 5 noteworthy New England leaf peeping stops! During the fall season, Matt and I always laugh because it’s the only time of year we can set up for photoshoots without being questioned. Usually, we are met with curious looks or anticipating stares from strangers assuming Matt is setting up cameras to documental a proposal – especially during our couples photoshoots. But in the fall, we blend into the crowds of tourists toting their own cameras for leaf peeping! While recently in Manchester, Vermont, it became clear to me leaf peepers had arrived from near and far…

The Classic New England Trench

September 30th, 2019
Location  •   Connecticut

Nothing says New England style quite like a classic trench coat. I often find myself grasping for my trench coats because they’re the perfect jacket to throw on for work or play – a trench coat literally goes with anything! Just because something is classic doesn’t mean it has to be boring. This season I’ve seen the trench coat making strides beyond its atypical camel color. Brands are now using textiles, corduroy, and autumn hues – like moss green and pink.  I featured my own unconventional trench in my pink hues for fall post. While I dream of…

September 25th, 2019
Location  •   Orange, Massachusetts

Fall gives New Englanders the opportunity to look at things we often take for granted in a new light! Trees begin to stop us in our path with beautiful foliage and dairy farms turn into autumn wonderlands. All year long we can thank dairy farms for helping to preserve the open spaces we know and love in our region, but in the fall, these farms are especially stunning.  My favorite part about this time of year is how several New England dairy farms open their doors to the public for age-old traditions like pumpkin picking and successfully conquering a corn…
