So this week I received a few things in the mail. Most of us order things via internet, it’s easy and for me shopping with a toddler isn’t easy, so instead of getting myself crazy I shop often online. If anyone reads this blog, you know that I am in the mist of decorating my […]
Finally…..getting around to photographing my kitchen. I still need to paint but I wanted to take some shots before it got messy again,which will actually be in less than 1 hour when the boys come home:). In my dreams I created a kitchen like this, never thinking I would actually have it someday. I am so grateful […]
I wanted to keep our Christmas simple this year. I wanted it to be reflective of who were were as a family. We had a running theme through the season which was the Polar Express. No matter how many times we watch it, it’s inspiring every time. My son asked me a few days before Christmas […]
This Christmas was extra special because it was our first holiday in our new home. I can’t tell you how good it felt to walk down OUR stairs with OUR boys on Christmas day. Shane was so thrilled that Santa remembered that we moved & actually found our new home that every gift he opened was […]
Warmest wishes from our home to yours for a happy & healthy holiday season!
Enjoy The Small Things For Someday They Will Be The BIG Things.

Every year since I was a little girl my mother would give me an ornament on Christmas Eve. It was a tradition and it was something I looked forward to as it would always hold a special meaning for us. She would hand write in her beautiful penmanship a note along with the year. I didn’t […]
Every year since my son Shane was 2 he has had a very strong opinion about what he wanted to be for Halloween. This year he couldn’t make up his mind, but he knew he wanted to be something scary. Well, I didn’t think that was such a good idea for many reasons & keep in mind this […]
How is it that my little boy just started first grade this morning. It seems like just yesterday he was hugging on my leg, barely walking or talking. Yet today he goes out into the world all dressed up in his high tops, plaid shirt & “cool dude” hair, ready and eager to make new […]
City Farmhouse This past Sunday I ran a 5k race in my hometown of Bellport, NY, it was a race I hadn’t ran in 10 years (pre-baby days.) Last July I wanted to run the race but something inside said “you can’t.” I just had my son in March, was still recovering from my c-section. […]
Where do I begin? Where do I start? It’s been a LONG time since my last post. After some thought I decided let me just update everyone! The last year + has been a little crazy but how can I really complain when we have had so many blessings come our way. Last March we […]
Every once in a while in the fall on Long Island we get a surprise, an Indian Summer day. When this happens we take full advantage because the winters can be long, wet, cold and rough! Not too bad for a day in November -68 degrees. So we headed to the beach, the Atlantic Ocean. […]
I am reminded today of what a gift it is to be alive. I woke up this morning to “mom can I come in your bed?” My husband was getting ready for work and I was half asleep, gladly I said “sure.” My son Shane wanted to talk about his Halloween costume. Realizing he wasn’t […]
I know that some of you may have been wondering where the heck I have been. I have been out of the loop big time and I so apologize to all of my blogging friends for being gone for so long. I do have a good excuse. I am 16 weeks pregnant and I have […]
Lory from The Sunshine Studio has been gracious enough to interview me and with that she is doing a giveaway. She will be raffling off either my Maison de Plage-Beach House pillow or my new Tattered Flower Necklace. I hope everyone is having a lovely summer!
I love flowers, smelling them, growing them, looking at them but most of all I like wearing them.Especially in the summer, throw on a cute little dress and a simple flower accessory and you’re ready to go.I thought I would share my new muslin flower necklaces and some other designs that I adore this season. […]
It’s this birthday that I am a little wiser, a little braver, and a lot more grateful for the many blessing I have. I embrace my years and my journey for they are molding me to be better, that is the beauty of “Life Experience.” I realize this year more than any other that my […]
