Since buying our property over 9 years ago, we have slowly but surely made improvements to the 1 acre lot. We first tore down the old house: Since 2012, we’ve: built a new garage, built a shed, tore down the old garage, took out over 40 surrounding trees, and added a paved driveway.

I know March may seem like such a “blah” kind of month (especially after last year’s disaster), but not only do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the beginning of spring, it’s also my birthday month!! Yes I’m turning 37, but I still like to make a big deal about my … Continue reading Running Into March
Happy February everyone! We welcomed the new month with over a foot of snow, here in central Massachusetts. I worked on shoveling in front of the front door and making a path to the garage and the shed. David did the hard work of snow blowing our 300 foot driveway.

For all of the times that I’ve made banana bread, I’m surprised I’ve never shared the recipe I use! It’s super simple, and one that I can thank my sister in law for. I believe it was the Christmas just after I got married that she gifted me a recipe book that had a bunch … Continue reading Easy and Delicious Banana Bread
There were a lot of milestones to celebrate last week. On Monday alone, it was: My 12th wedding anniversary To celebrate, we hiked up Mount Wachusett (we miss hiking!) and visited the Wachusett Brewing Company.
