Curly Hair and Christmas Card Portraits

November 7th, folks. We are already one week into the holiday season. I feel as if we are in a race to finish 2019 and I’m slamming on the brakes to slow it all down. Anyone else feel that way too? In an effort to get ahead, I took our family portraits last weekend. Let me define the term family for you…my husband and I. ha ha! I design our Christmas cards each year and I like to be ready for the print sales. Thank goodness I did, because the next day I received an email marketing campaign with 25% off! When I was searching for couples poses, outfit inspiration and curly hairstyles for our Christmas card portraits, I was disappointed by the lack of results. For instance, type in “curly hair couples portrait” or “curly hairstyle for portraits” in Pinterest search. You may find headshots of naturally curly women,…

Half Price Drapes: The Best Off-White Curtains

It’s the most wonderful time of year and I don’t mean Christmas. The last three months of the year is home remodel time for us. It happens every single year. Plans for holiday guests start coming in and it immediately motivates us to work on the house. All those little projects we softly talked about are suddenly all-consuming. One of those recent home remodel projects was the naked windows in our guest room. I spent weeks researching budget friendly, affordable curtain panels that would not only look luxurious, but cost less than $100 each. Here are the best off-white curtains I could find and I’ve also included the 8 reasons why I love them!

Where To Eat Gluten Free in Atlanta Georgia

We just returned from a week in Atlanta and I’m excited to share all the gluten free restaurants and cafes where we ate! I’ve even included a couple places I wanted to try but wasn’t able to for lack of time. If it’s your first visit to Atlanta, this list of restaurants is organized from North to South. I’ve included the MARTA stops and local attractions. I find when traveling it’s best to know where to eat when you are attending an event or tourist attraction. If you are looking for a well organized list of things to see and do during your visit, check out my blog 5 Days In Atlanta: Where To Stay and Play.

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…
