Falling for Fall

IMG_7461We’ll be “falling back” this weekend, much to my chagrin. I like daylight. I don’t mind nighttime, but it doesn’t need to arrive at 5pm! Or earlier, as it will this winter. The Northeast usually produces a gorgeous Fall season, but it’s over too quickly, as the leaves that are so vibrant are too soon on the ground.

As we “fall back”, I’m looking back over one of my favorite months of the year.IMG_7459 IMG_7469IMG_7449 IMG_7522 IMG_7524IMG_7569 IMG_7572 IMG_7577 IMG_7589Cheers to a happy Halloween, sneaking your favorite candy and cozying up by a fire. Good-bye October….it was a really good month!

What was your highlight for October?


If I Lived in London…


…I think I’d like to live in a neighborhood like this. 

While strolling through the neighborhoods of Knightsbridge and Chelsea, each entry was prettier than the next. Talk about making a great first impression. Glossy black doors seemed the most popular, so many of these are variations on a theme.

Couldn’t resist snapping a few extra photos of this charming area. 

Even my favorite Parisian chocolatier has an outpost here!

I went to London for the history and came away being awed by its beauty, charm…and curb appeal!

Which entrance is your favorite?

Home Sweet Home

Good Monday morning, everyone!! How was your weekend? Ours was great…that perfect combination of family time and seeing friends. Flag football games and work around the house. Dinner in the city and a fundraiser in the “burbs”. Exercise and relaxation. Balance in all areas.
Today, I am thrilled to be sharing more about our home for a special blogger series hosted by my friend, Tina, of the fabulously inspiring blog,  The Enchanted Home!! Come on over and see what’s new. The family room is currently undergoing some changes….even a color change that might surprise you!! You’ll get a glimpse into the new playroom…not yet completed. And, hear what I’d do to the house if money was no object!

No, things are not blooming in this area yet….except the daffodils, but these are my favorite exterior photos of the house. I keep telling myself….soon, things will bloom, soon!

So, what’s your favorite spot in your home? Where would I find you on any given day? Come on….we’re friends, you can share!
