Perfect Winter Getaway!

Long time, no blog! What a crazy few weeks – to say the least.

I really do not want to leave this poor blog unattended for too long, so I come bearing warm-weather photos from a recent trip I took to Sanibel, FL!

We’ve had snow storm, after snow storm, after snow storm in Connecticut, and getting away to some place warm was so necessary for my sanity! My parents spent pretty much the entire month of February (and then some) “wintering” in Florida & invited me down for a visit. I couldn’t pass it up.

I had been a little stressed and this trip was exactly what I needed. For those still shoulder deep in snow (like me), I hope these pictures brings a little glimmer of hope of the warmer days to come!

Had to start off the trip with a bright manicure!

The Final Christmas Post [Camera Roll]

Today I have the final post in my four part Christmas break wrap up. Sigh. The holidays are officially over 🙁

(Part one, part two, part three <– IF you’re interested!)

This blog is less about one particular day or event, and instead… a bunch of random photo’s that I wanted to share. Apologies in advance for the randomness!

My Mom, Sister & I spent the day with AJ the Sunday after Christmas. We went to brunch at Centro in Fairfield - which was SO yum! Then we did a little shopping. Katherine & I could not stop playing with the needle toy - I used to LOVE those!

Ladies Who Lunch…and Shop!

Good Morning!

Today I have part three of my four part Christmas break round-up for you. (Find part one: here and two: here)!

So, I’ve had my (recently engaged!!) best friend since I was born! Literally, our Mom’s met in the hospital. My Mom was in labor with me, and her Mom (pregnant with her), was my NICU nurse. They became friends, and after that we became friends, our brothers became friends, and our sisters became friends – all the same age.

We all used to spend nearly every day together growing up, but due to life (sigh), we don’t get to spend as much time together anymore. Over the holiday we miraculously all had time off & decided to have a girls day (missed you, bro’s)!

It was such a wonderful afternoon of tea, treats, makeup, shopping, and plenty of laughs. 😉

The day started with my best friend asking me to be her maid of honor! I am so excited to co-moh her wedding with her little sister. It's going to be amazing :)
The day started with such a high! We all met at my friend’s house before we left and she asked me to be her maid of honor! I was so honored that she wanted me to play such an important role in her big day and I am so excited to co-moh the wedding with her little sister next Summer. It’s going to be amazing 🙂

NYC Trip With the Family

Welcome to post #2 of my four part “Christmas break” blog series :). Read my first post here!

In this blog, I want to share one of the most amazing days I had in a really long time! My family took a trip to NYC on a Tuesday night and met up with a couple of my Aunts, my Uncle & my cousins for a delicious dinner in Little Italy.

We took the train into the city in the last afternoon. Mom & I were bright eyed... Dad & Kath, not so much haha.

A Perfect Christmas [2014]

The holidays have come & gone…and far too quickly at that! Though I’m ready to jump head first into the New Year, I have to go back and recap all of the wonderful things I was able to do, and the wonderful people I was able to see over the past couple of weeks that I’ve had off from work. I have far too much to share in one post…but I think that four will cut it! Here is #1 :).

In this particular post, I wanted to recap Christmas!

After a crazy Christmas Eve (travel) Day, we got all dressed up for our annual holiday visiting. I felt very Kris Jenner with my collar necklace :)
