Florida Bound!

This week, Jeff and I are headed to Florida to visit with his family and celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Ever since his father and stepmom moved to Florida from San Diego last year, I started planning an ultimate Florida trip in my head. It involved a little Disney (Jeff has never been), some family […] Read more…

Garden and Herb Festival

One of the most peaceful and bucolic parts of my hometown of Tiverton, RI is Tiverton Four Corners. The roads at this four-way intersection all lead to something wonderful – farms, beaches, hiking trails, vineyards, and some incredible local favorite shops and restaurants including The Provender, Milk and Honey,  Four Corners Grill, and the iconic […] Read more…

Cas-Cad-Nac Alpaca Farm

During a Vermont Agritourism Conference I attended in early April (more on that soon!), one of the presenters mentioned Cas-Cad-Nac Alpaca Farm. I was looking for another place to visit and photograph on my way home and as you know I can’t resist adorable livestock. I called the farm and they were so kind to accommodate me for a […] Read more…

Friday Flowers: The Seeds

With the amazing array of cut flowers you can grow, which ones do you choose? There are a ton of resources available both online and in print about planting flowers, but with so many variables to consider- season, climate, location, soil quality, fertilizer, I’ll admit I got a bit overwhelmed. Then I reminded myself that this is supposed to […] Read more…

Friday Flowers are Back!

If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know I have a soft spot for plants and flowers. When I started planning my wedding almost 5 (?!) years ago, I fell in love with the wild and gorgeous arrangements by the likes of Saipua, Green Lion Design, Studio Choo and Floret. I’ve continued to follow these […] Read more…

Downeast Cider House

I have such a sweet tooth, it’s a wonder I haven’t needed dentures yet. So it’s no surprise that I love hard ciders. Before beer came on to the scene in the late 19th century with the arrival of German immigrants, hard cider could be considered our national drink. But Prohibition and the movement of our population […] Read more…
