Just a few more weeks left in 2018, and its already got me thinking about a few goals for the New Year. Typically, I’m not one for resolutions, but the past few years I’ve taken a liking to setting intentions for the upcoming year- activities I can add to my routine; habits I can incorporate into my daily life; ways to make time for me over the next twelve months.Read More
December is just around the corner, and that means we're ready for all the holiday cheers.
Typically, we host an annual Christmas party with our nearest and dearest. Most of the time, we stick to a beverage menu consisting heavily of reds- you can find my comprehensive list of reds for every budget here. But this year I wanted to spruce it up with a few seasonal cocktails from our local favorite, Lugano Wine Bar & Salumeria.Read More
It’s official, kids: the holidays are upon us.
Whether you delve head first into Christmas as soon as the clock strikes November, or if you like to take your time and give Thanksgiving its moment- It. Is. Happening!Read More
A few weeks ago Maddie and I teamed up with one of our favorite local mompreneurs, Jasmine of MerriMane, to share some of our local spots in downtown greenwich. MerriMane has been a favorite of ours since she launched just a few months ago- her sweet little fleeces the perfect combination of fashion and function for littles- so when she asked me to launch her “City Guide” series I couldn’t wait to show her around town.Read More
If I’m being honest, I’d say about ninety percent of our social life revolves around meals. A lot of our family life does, too, as a matter of fact. We’re into food- from green juices to meat and cheese plates and everything in between.Read More
This past weekend I had the pleasure of throwing a fall picnic in celebration of our very special twin nieces’ birthdays.
As fellow autumn lovers, I envisioned an outdoor, rustic vibe for them that was laid-back and whimsical enough for their pre-teen fancies. I’ve attempted to execute a backyard picnic in the past; and I can assure you, it is no easy feat. So this time around I enlisted the help of Dream and Party- a local event planner, party rental, design visionary all in one.Read More
This past weekend was pretty low key- but exactly what we needed after one long week.
Friday we headed to nearby Darien. I enjoyed a much needed infrared sauna at Inner Light while Phil walked around town with MM. We then met some friends for an early dinner at Bodega, which serves some of the best tacos and Mexican street corn around.Read More
Yesterday, I tried to play Supermom.
As someone that quite vocally rejects the idea of the perfect parent, this was entirely out of character. But I woke up inspired: to try to be organized, and responsible, and run like clockwork.Read More
Brrrr! At the risk of sounding redundant: its cold. And if you're home with the littles like Yours Truly, then cabin fever may be setting in already. This past week I brought out all the stops to keep MM entertained indoors. We dined out at our favorite restaurants. We attended the best local drop-in classes. And we even enjoyed some of our favorite indoor activities at home- in the comfort of our PJs.Read More
For as long as I can remember, my mom has baked.
More specifically, she baked cookies. A lot of them.
Growing up there were few days that we'd come home without a delicious batch of cookies to treat ourselves to after a long day at school. And these weren't any old cookies. They were Kath's Kookies.Read More
Over the weekend I conducted another very helpful poll on my Insta Stories. It's one of my favorite new features on Instagram, and lets me know a little more about what ya'll are looking for, and how I can make this little blog of mine better.
I asked what you wanted to see more of here at LL; and the overwhelming majority of you answered that you wanted to see more of my favorite things to do here in CT. Just in time for our local giveaway.Read More
