around | cooperstown, ny







It's been one year since D and I got married on a beautiful beach in Florida. 
Since during this first year we became first-time parents, we decided to spend our anniversary on a family friendly trip! After some quick discussions between feedings we landed on Cooperstown in New York. D has been obsessed with baseball and with a growing collection of Ebbet's Field hats we thought the Baseball Hall of Fame was the perfect choice. 

First off, this beautiful little town sits on the edge of the Catskills mountains next to Lake Ostego, where we dined alfresco at a beautiful resort! Second of all the town has wonderful main drag with cut little shops and restaurants! We had a wonderful time, and were mesmerized by the changing leaves.

The first photo is of our wonderful little hotel we stayed at The Cooper Inn. It was a heaven of mixed patterns and New England charm. I recommend this for anyone looking for a quick,
 little weekend getaway!

his & hers | around the house




Now that Dan and I are married, we decided to move out of our tiny (yet extremely affordable) apartment and move into our first "adult"place. My dream of our first place was filled with warm nights snuggling on the couch, cooking family dinners and feeling like I am home. Living in Nashville really allowed me to make my place completely my own, since moving back I have been working on meshing Dan and my's style without looking like we lived in the circus!

His Style: mid-century modern with playful pops of color...and toys

Her Style: southwest cozy with pieces of the nature

So how does that come together? Well I will let you know once I have it entirely figured out but in the mean time here are some little nooks and cranies I have perfected (in my opinion) around the apartment. We still have a lot of work to do, but these are starting to make this place home.

The snow has fallen, it's December and Christmas-time is finally here! The first thing I always put up is my tree, truthfully I have barely digested Thanksgiving dinner before I have started planning where I will put it in my apartment. The smells of cinnamon and evergreen fills my home, with thoughts of cuddling up on the sofa with coco and a cozy blanket!

For those of us with...uh...limited space I know how challenging it can be to get over the idea of bringing in more to our homes. Here are some lovely small space solutions to bring in the Holiday cheer and not cramp your style! I love the alternative trees, decorating with memories and mementos warms my heart. What's your favorite things to decorate with?

his & hers | Barbour

Last Sunday Dan and I enjoyed a surprise day off together, never a bad thing! We started the day off with a little too much coffee, which lead to us acting like a pair of 5 years olds...instead of the two mature adults I know are in us somewhere.

We just threw on our comfiest and coziest for trekking around our fair city. Not only did we both grab some beat up tennis shoes, but we rolled up our jeans and topped it all off with our favorite Barbour!

Side note Dan used to collect Nikes and every single times he wears a pair I fear I will come home to Nike boxes lining our walls...one obsession at a time dear!

his:
J Crew Cords & Flannel
Nike Shoes
Barbour Jacket

hers:
Urban Outfitters Sweater
J Crew Boyfriend Jeans
Converse Tennis Shoes
Barbour Jacket

For the past three years we have made an 'unofficial' tradition of exchanging Need Supply 
wishlists for Christmas gift inspiration.  The Men's and Women's shops are so well curated, each brand seems tailored perfectly into the brands simple, yet edgy dynamic. I am also thrilled that they have taken their keen eye for style to the home goods world...since I am just slightly obsessed with decorating our first home as Mr. and Mrs. 

This year we are keeping it rather simple since we really have our eye on a new addition to our family...a puppy.

How did I forget?! Need Supply is running a 'Win your wishlist' contest, nothing wrong with free stuff! Crossing my fingers for a free wishlist and happy puppy on Christmas morning!

I am a Pinterest junky...literally I can't rip myself away! Since I am in a new apartment, finally, I am continually on the hunt for great inspiration to make my home feel cozy. 

My favorite part of decorating has to be creating little "moments" around my home. I love putting together personal little touches around that are like little vignettes of my life. When I look at these little areas they make me smile while a take a little walk down memory lane.
