Family, ring, champagne, and balloons

These are some celebration photos already posted in instagram. Tyler’s sister, brother and wife all drove up from Boston to surprise us. We had a great celebratory lunch in Norwich Inn (all planned by my future mother-in-law) after our return from the great trip (which you’ll read a lot about by the way!). Tyler’s sister […] Read more…

A weekend by the lake in New Hampshire

A little weekend getaway in the woods is just what every New Yorker everyone needs. My boyfriend and I drove up to New London, NH recently for a family weekend and to celebrate a few wonderful events and accomplishments. We stayed at a country inn by Pleasant Lake, and it was just what I needed. The lake was […] Read more…

It’s Christmas time in the city…

What happens when no one in your family has Christmas spirit? You bring the Christmas spirit to them! 1- Play Santa. Everybody loves gifts…even those who pretend not to. (Ahem… dad?) 2- Play Christmas Carols. 3- Be jolly. Laughing is contagious. I visited my family in New Jersey on Christmas Eve to celebrate the holiday […] Read more…

Pass the loving, please

  Wednesday evening, traveling between NYC to New Jersey was chaos. On the busiest travel days of the year, Penn Station was shut down, which led a large number of the commuters to Port Authority as an alternative way of getting home for the holidays. After a very frustrating wait to get my bus ticket […] Read more…

Family meal and quality time

The weekend Tyler and I went to Boston to visit his brother and sister-in-law, we decided to dedicate one night to home-cooking. This means, Tyler does all of the cooking. Keith airs out the apartment when it got too smoky. And I sit with Anita with our legs up basking in the apartment’s amenities, covered […] Read more…

Style post: Knits for the Perfect Fall Day

What happens when the lovely weather fairy blesses you with a beautiful fall day? You take full advantage of it, that what! Last Sunday was not only sunny, it was warm enough to go outside without a coat. Everything was so colorful and vibrant. I wore an outfit that matched the picturesque fall foliage to […] Read more…

Double birthday weekend in Boston

Today is my wonderful boyfriend’s birthday! To begin the celebrations, we hopped on a bus to Boston to stay with his brother Keith and wife Anita for a weekend filled with great food and fun times. It turns out that Anita’s birthday falls one day after Tyler’s so we had all the reasons to drink […] Read more…

bright fall days

I love me a good sunny fall day. A day warm enough I can wear layers, but still go outside without having to wearing leggings or pants. That day was not that day. Yes, it was extremely bright and sunny, but once I got on the roof, after two minutes, I was forced to run […] Read more…

A day with my mother

Meet my mother. She’s like the sister I’ve never had. I love when she visits me in my New York. I get to take her to all of my favorite places or places I read great things about. After brunch in the West Village and some shopping one Saturday, we decided to go relax by […] Read more…

Quality time

I knew Mother’s Day was going to be epic from the way the day started. I overslept so I knew I was already running late. I got dressed rapidly, barely thinking about what I was going to wear. I grabbed a burgundy sheer dress I purchased for the fall last year from my closet and threw it on. I really […] Read more…
