3 Events Before Noon

September 16th has been on my calendar for a few months as “the really busy day in September”. It’s very rare that I have more than one event in a single day. In fact, this is only the second day in over two years that it’s happened but this is the first year that I […]

Dinner Under the Stars

As we rounded the corner I felt like Lorelai Gilmore walking through Stars Hollow. There were tables set up spanning the width of the street for as far as I could see. Cafe lights were strung overhead and glittered as the sun set the sky on fire with deep oranges and yellows. Jazz music wafted […]

Creamy Pumpkin Dip

It’s almost Fall ya’ll and that means cinnamon and pumpkin flavors will be coming out of my kitchen on a weekly basis! I tried to resist but I already have a few recipes lined up ready to make and share with you over the next few weeks!  This one is my all time favorite and something […]

2017 Fall Bucket List

Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd but the cool crisp air has arrived in Baltimore and the leaves are slowly changing into hues of red and orange. I LOVE it! This is by far my favorite time of the year. From now until January I’m a happy happy girl but Fall the next few […]


That’s how I feel right now. Violated.  Last week I started my 10 day vacation from my job. Chris and I had a great Saturday with friends and then went to the Ravens game. After we got home that evening, as we were sleeping multiple people broke into our home and stole most of our valuable […]

Bye August, Hello September

Happy September friends! This month marks the beginning of Fall, the start of wedding season for us, and 365 days until our wedding! I can’t wait to see what fun will be had this month. But we can’t jump right into September without remembering everything that happened in August! August was a hard month for […]

Summer ’17 Bucket List Recap

 Summer 2017 is gone. How….HOW is that possible?! I feel like the last three months flew by way quicker than any before and my summer is gone. While I’m a basic B and LIVE for Fall, I’m still sad that the carefree attitude and warm nights of summer have gone by so quickly.  It’s been […]

Week 28: Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Whew… this little series was put on the back burner over the last few weeks while my life took off and became insane! So sorry friends! While this started as a goal for 2017 I will 100% continue posting delicious recipes until I’ve reached 52 weeks!  I noticed a trend with my cooking and especially […]

Wedding Wednesday: Building a Budget

This post was written for Baltimore Bride’s Hitched: The Blog. You can find it HERE. When asked the question, “What is the hardest part about planning a wedding?” my response has consistently been building the budget! While I’m sure the “hardest part” will change over the course of our 15-month engagement, for now the budget […]

Tranquility in NJ

A few weeks ago Chris and I drove to Connecticut for a one year old’s birthday party. The drive to CT was insanely gorgeous (long), but gorgeous. We enjoyed the afternoon with Chris’ college friends who have become some of my favorite people over the past two years! We enjoyed yummy bbq, drinks and each […]
