It’s Marathon Monday here in Boston, a day where the city pauses and the entire 26.2 mile race course is filled with cheering crowds. Today the weather for the marathon was abysmal, but that didn’t stop runners from charging ahead. Many folks in Boston have a specific intersection that they call their own for watching this race, but […]

Last weekend I traveled to Connecticut for a weekend of bridal pampering and planning for one of my best friends who is getting married in August.  We visited the stunning vineyard where she is getting married, had her hair trial, and ordered her shoes, all while the Maid of Honor and myself (matron of honor) […]

Creative cooking has slowed down in these here parts with the puppy taking up much of our energy.  The house is a mess and our dinners are simple, but the little guy sure does provide us with energy and excitement.       It was a longer winter this year. One where the darkness felt […]

Winter storm Toby is barreling our way, bringing over a foot of heavy snow, the potential for more power outages, and causing headaches across the Northeast as routines are once again disrupted.

Meet the newest member of our clan, Toby! His first day at home has been filled with romps around the snow-filled yard, naps in various parts of the house, and an excessive amount of snuggles. We are in HEAVEN!  For those who read the blog, Toby has not yet met Truffles and Cheese (our two […]

March sure has come in like a lion.  First, we are getting a puppy! Our endeavor has been a rollercoaster, mostly due to my allergies which limit the pooches I’m able to snuggle. When we stumbled across the Bernedoodles (Bernese Mountain Dogs bred with Poodles) we fell in LOVE but countless breeders only had puppies […]

Sunday dinners are a special time of the week.  It marks the end of a restful weekend and indicates the transition back into the work week.  For food lovers like myself, Sundays are often filled with meal prep and the opportunity to make a large batch of food that can be reheated throughout the week.
