The Almost Healthy Winter Elixir Cocktail with Republic of Vermont Raw Honey

We have this amazing little cafe in our area called The Beehive. It’s pretty adorable and the food is on point. They make this amazing tea concoction they call the Winter Elixir., and I get throughout the winter whenever I’m feeling like my immune system could use a boost. Being that it’s March in New England, I think everyone’s body could use a good dose of this right about now. I actually called them up so I could make it at home from time to time, and it’s surprisingly pretty simple! A little homemade ginger mint tea, some delicious Raw Honey from The Republic of Vermont and fresh lemon juice, and this drink will do your body good. We also don’t judge if you want to add a little shot of bourbon - we hear it will warm you right up!

Casual Autumn Dinner Party with Nantucket Looms

I really love this time of year. Now, I know I say that about most times of year (except maybe that late March - early May here in New England, that is a time I could do without) - but autumn in New England is just about as good as it gets. It calls for all things cozy and comforting, and just makes you want to find any excuse to gather people together. And this year happens to be even more special since we are expecting a little one any day now.

Closing Out Patio Season

Once the hydrangeas start to change their hues from a vibrant blue to a mix of fabulous fall shades, I know our time outdoors is starting to dwindle. I love the change of seasons though, it makes you appreciate every single night you get to spend outside, soaking up the warmer temps. This time of year in particular is wonderful. The chilly nights calls for long sleeves and jeans, but you are perfectly cozy sitting outside with the right layers. So I like to make any random night an occasion. And since I just so happen to be pushing 9 months pregnant - that always involves snacks like this yummy popcorn from Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP.

Laid Back, New England Summer Entertaining

As a little girl, my New England-bred parents (who had been transplanted to Tennessee right around the time I was born), packed up our suburban every summer and drove up the eastern seaboard (sometimes with a boat in tow, sometimes with a dog, and always with four kids with far too much energy for a 22 hour drive) to escape the oppressive southern summers. We instead replaced them with magical New England ones.

Outdoor Patio Update + Summer Entertaining with Joss & Main

I love all seasons, I really do, but summer in New England is something to really appreciate. Maybe it's because we wait so long for it. Maybe it's because the weather is just perfection. Maybe it's because everyone just seems like they are in the happiest of moods. Whatever it is, I try to soak it up in every capacity and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
