Snow day

Oh, New England. Today is my Dad’s birthday (happy birthday, Dad!) and as I was saying to him earlier this morning, his day is unique as it can either be a beautiful, 70 degree day — or a full-on blizzard. 2017 decided to choose the snow. I’m hoping that spring will come rolling through any day now. In the meantime, let’s [try to] enjoy this weather.

There are some comforting things about a snow storm. For one, you don’t have to feel guilty for hanging on the couch all day. After all, the Governor told us to stay home. It is also a great opportunity to cook up a delicious breakfast and/or dinner you’ve been wanting to make but haven’t had the time.

Here are some other great ideas for your snow day:

  • Relax with a bubble bath
  • Find a new book to indulge in
  • Complete those small tasks you’ve been putting off, like making a Dr. appt. or scheduling your pup to get groomed
  • Do a face mask
  • Make a fire, have some hot chocolate and watch a movie you’ve wanted to see

I’ll be working from home during the day’s storm. But, will definitely be doing some of these things afterwards. What are you planning on doing during today’s snow day?

All fall everything

It’s officially here, my favorite season: fall. I have already had a few PSLs (which aren’t as good as I remember them to be…), switched out my clothes from tanks to huge sweaters, bought pumpkins, went apple picking and made apple crisp.

This is just the BEST time of the year in New England. While I spend most of my days dreaming of somewhere else (which is a really terrible thing to do), I have to say that I feel very lucky to live in New England this time of the year. In just a few weekends, I’ll be heading up to Vermont, which will be beautiful with the foliage. And then, mid-November, jussssst when it’s becoming TOO cold, I’m escaping to Florida for a long weekend.

Until then, I am going to enjoy every. minute. of this perfect season.
