Recommended :: The Time Between

the-time-between
I’ve read a few other Karen White books and they can always be counted on to be absorbing easy reads – just what I need right about now! I started “The Time Between” last weekend and zipped through it in three days – it felt great to be reading again and I hope it’s a trend! Looking for a beachy read with good characters and an interesting plot? This is it!

Newborn Photography :: Ezra

A few weeks ago we headed down to Boston to meet Ezra – the newest addition to our circle of friends. Giles was one of the best men at our wedding and Jeff has known him since grade school. It was so wonderful to meet Ezra – I don’t ever remember Norah being that tiny!

Frozen Lake Champlain

Back in early February we met our friends at my Mom’s house to walk down to the beach. As we approached the water it looked a little strange and when we reached the shore we realized that it had frozen completely perfectly so that you could see right down to the bottom of the lake even 10, 20, 30 feet down – simply incredible. I couldn’t BELIEVE it but I had decided to not bring my phone that day so a friend kindly snapped these and sent them.

Mountaintop Inn Bridal Show

Two weeks ago I took part in my first ever bridal show at the Mountaintop Inn and Resort in Chittenden. This beautiful venue has a caterer on site so twice a year they host tastings for their couples and invite local vendors to participate too. It was fun to see the room transformed by so many talented professionals. Enjoy some highlights!

I loved how Nancy from A Schoolhouse Garden displays her cards – good inspiration for placecards!

Each table was set with a different linen from the Linen Shop at Occasions Catering – gave the couples many ideas for decor. This was one of my favorite combinations with the beautiful florals by Nancy again
