It’s been a rainy week so far in Connecticut. Making me crave lazy days by the fire; cozied up in our favorite blankets in our most festive seasonal pajamas. We’ve been quite dedicated to holiday pajamas since MM arrived- matching Christmas sets being our most favorite.Read More
Where, oh where, did September go? It feels like this month has flown by- and I can’t believe that in just one week we’ll be welcoming October.
