The past month plus I have been quite busy with many different projects and I want to apologize for falling off the boat here. I am really excited for what I will be sharing with you over the next few months.
I hope you are staying cozy on these chilly wintery days!

I couldn’t be more excited for this years christmas tree! Tomorrow morning my boyfriend and I will head out on a little trip to hike around a tree farm and select the perfect imperfect tree. Happy Weekend Everyone!
Last night after dinner I popped open a box of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread mix and whipped up a fall favorite. Out of the oven it came and on went a scoop of French vanilla ice cream! Delicious!!
I hope you enjoy a fun and relaxing fall weekend!
Over Columbus Day weekend I enjoyed a change of scenery with my boyfriend and family on a little getaway to Rangeley, Maine. We hit the road after work on Friday and took a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of our daily routines. As a child growing up, I took annual trips to this quintessential Maine town for leaf peeping, hiking and cozy family gatherings around the fireplace. Since then it has become one of my favorite destinations for fly fishing and camping trips with friends.
The Rangeley region of Maine is dominantly lakes and ponds with rolling mountains. There are six larger lakes and literally hundreds of other smaller lakes, ponds, and rivers. The views are breathtaking and we were there in the thick of fall foliage. During this time the landscape is ablaze with brilliant shades of gold, russet, citron and red hues.
About a month ago I was contacted by Time Out New York inquirying about my denim and chambray zippered pouch. The fashion department was plannning their fall trend posts and they were interested in seeing my zippered pouch in person. I sent it off and was honored when I found out last week that I was included in Time Out New York’s Men’s fall fashion trends. (they saved the best for last!)

This past weekend Kris and I had the honor of celebrating the marriage of some close friends. We started on Friday morning with the Cambodian Wedding Ceremony and then Saturday afternoon for the Catholic Wedding. Below are pictures from Saturday. I have a few hundred pictures I am sifting through and will share a second post for the Cambodian ceremony. I hand painted the couple a card with their mini portrait and flowers of their color palette. I love wrapping presents and had thoroughly enjoyed myself wrapping up a present “for the groom,” “for the bride,” and one “for the happy new couple.”
The weekend couldn’t have been more beautiful and more special with the couple’s personal touches.
Here is a sneak peak at my little neck of the woods.
