Sale Happy…and a little more

Hi, friends! Sorry for the lack of posts over this past week or so. This time between Christmas and New Years is always such a whirlwind! With a mix of relaxing, entertaining and traveling, it’s been hard to keep my days straight! After Christmas we headed to NY to visit my SIL and her family […]

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

Holiday Gift Guide for the GUYS

Another gift guide to share with you all today, this one being one of the most difficult that I find to pull together! I could put endless options together for women, but guys always stump me. Maybe this is because my husband is somewhat of a minimalist. As long as he has the tech-y tools […]

Love for Plaid

Cozy sweaters, layered over closet staples and topped with a festive plaid makes for one easy outfit equation! I’m loving this Amazon sweater which I’ve been wearing layered or on it’s own. It comes in a number of color options but I’ve been drawn to browns lately. It runs over-sized as I’m in the xs […]
