The Best Time of the Year

Ah, it’s officially my favorite time of the year… I love this cooler (not cold) weather. Beyond wearing boots and sweaters, I love this time of year because it’s ideal for outdoor activities with the dogs. I spend a lot of time outdoors with the dogs between our daily walks and trips to the park…


Meesh’s Zucchini Bread Recipe

My mom was always baking the best things when we were kids. (She still bakes daily actually!) She has a few tried and true recipes that became hits with family friends, and they’d be in heavy rotation throughout the year. I think each of our family friends has a particular favorite that they request whenever…

The Perfect Plaid Scarf

A couple of years ago I found the perfect plaid scarf at Target of all places. I actually think my sister found it if my memory serves correctly. It really was the perfect plaid, and I’ve been searching for a similar option ever since I put it on my blog. Every fall, I start to get inquiries about where to get that particular scarf. I have tried to find similar ones throughout the years, but they’re never quite as cute.

I found a super similar one today though! (It’s the “Ivory Multi Plaid” option and I also love the “Bright Scarlett Plaid.”)


Apple Picking at Fishkill Farms

Every September, I start looking forward to apple picking. I don’t even know why it makes me so happy, but it does.

This year, I went with Carter to take some fun photos and to bring some apples home, of course. I actually had so many apples that I had bags to give away to my friends! (Don’t worry, I saved quite a few for myself!)


How to Figure Out Your Priorities

Oh gosh, YES. This guest post from Maxie is something we should all be considering. When I think about what I have time for and what I don’t, I’m really saying, these are my priorities, and these are not. I’ve personally been doing my own exercise of priorities this year and I realized where I had…


20 Preppy Fall Outfits

HAPPY OCTOBER. How on earth is it October already? I swear it feels like it was May about a week ago. October is one of my favorite months for outfit planning because #plaid. But also because I can dip into my cool weather wardrobe without having to bundle up. To celebrate the new month, I’ve rounded up twenty…


Fall Wedding Dresses

Do you guys have a lot of weddings coming up? Most of my friends are either already married or not in relationships, so I’ve been in a weird “in between” stage as far as weddings. I am going out to San Fransisco in the middle of October for the wedding of one of my boyfriend’s…


On My Radar

This week was filled with highs and lows. Well, one major low… I had a major back spasm! I pulled my lower back last week while cleaning (ugh) and it felt sore but generally okay this weekend. On Monday, it was starting to spread up my back, and on Tuesday, I could hardly move. I…


New Monogrammed Bedding

I’ve been slowly making changes to my bedroom over the past year or so. I’m so bad at this stuff, so it takes me forever until I feel like things are coming together. You know how on television shows when they have the decorator come in and pull the design together in two hours? That’s…
