Where to Cool Off in NH: Kancamagus Highway

In the two months we’ve been living in New Hampshire we have seen all four seasons. Everything from snow and freezing temperatures to humid, 90+ degree days.

My Last Curly Girl Cut with Sanctuary Salon and Spa

It was a sad day as I strolled into Sanctuary Salon and Spa for my last curly girl cut. In two weeks, Nick and I would be moving to New Hampshire. Taking a plane flight to Cornelius, North Carolina, for a hair cut is a bit out of the question. Although, I have considered it! That’s how much I love my stylist.

The goal for this DevaCurl cut was long lasting shape as I did not know when my next cut would be. Below are the details on how my stylists cut and styled my curls.

Visit NH: 7 Days At Lake Waukewan

My heart will forever be in New England. There is something about your childhood home that always calls you back. When you visit, all those nostalgic emotions and feelings bubble up inside you. The good and the bad. With maturity and time, the good memories always seem the most real. For my birthday, my family sent me plane tickets for a 7 day New Hampshire Getaway. Last year, my parents sold my childhood home and moved to Lake Waukewan. This visit was to experience everything their new place had to offer. I wasn’t disappointed. If you aren’t familiar with the Lakes Region of NH, Lake Waukewan is located in the towns of Meredith, New Hampton and Center Harbor. It feeds Lake Winnipesaukee via a waterfall you can visit at Mill Falls Marketplace. This blog is to share my personal adventures with the hope that your New Hampshire summer vacation might…

My Top 5 Pumpkin Recipes for Fall 2018

We are officially two weeks into the 2018 fall season. Everyone in our neighborhood is decorating their homes with pumpkins, mums, lanterns and string lights. The days are getting shorter, the leaves are just starting to change color and we are hoping to experience cooler weather in a few days. Everything about fall makes me want to bake! Here are my top 5 pumpkin recipes I am enjoying this season: 1. Gluten Free Pumpkin Scones These gluten free pumpkin scones are the perfect addition to breakfast with a cup of tea or coffee. They are moist, yet flaky. The combination of maple, cinnamon and pumpkin are a sweet, yet not overpowering blend. 2. Paleo Pumpkin Nut Bars If you are looking for a crowd pleasing dessert or even an afternoon snack, these paleo pumpkin nut bars are the perfect choice. Combine a crunchy cinnamon almond topping and a fudge-like pumpkin…

Decorating On A Budget: Breakfast Nook & Living Room

It’s our first southern snow day of 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. All the schools are closed and our neighbors are roaming the streets in their snow suits and sleds. I have been secretly hoping for snow since we stayed south for the holidays. I think we have close to 5 inches! That’s kind of a big deal for us. I enjoy fresh fallen snow because it acts as a diffuser. My home is beautifully lit and the sun isn’t even out. I had my camera gear out so I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of our home decor updates. Our story We purchased this house in the fall of 2016. It is located in a neighborhood of homes designed to look as if they were plucked right out of Charleston, South Carolina. Our goal is to be fiscally responsible with this investment. That means smart, long…
