We’re back!


Hi friends! We’re back from our little hiatus and we’re feelin’ refreshed (or as refreshed as you can be while you desperately want to continue staying home binging on shows…). We had a lovely week of bopping around town, hanging with friends, and eating everything in sight. We’re excited to share our holiday hangs with you, but sorry in advance that all of our photos are iPhone pics…we really went hard with the “no blogging” thing 🙂

We started the vaca week off with exciting news that Christa and Curtis got engaged!! (She’ll be putting together a post all about it real soon, so stay tuned!) It added some additional fun to their annual Christmas Party, which was festive and joyous as usual! We ate our little hearts out (pot luck dinners, man, they’re intense!), stayed up way too late, and made Reg’s first Dutch Baby, using Chrissy Teigen’s recipe from her new Cravings cookbook that Christa gave Reg for Christmas. #YUM

Christa & our friend Lauren


We tried out a new West Hartford bar, Noble & Co. with our lady loves, Julie & Rachael, and had way too much fun taking selfies all night…that’s what happens when you don’t get to hang out as much as you’d like!

And we finished off the week hang at one of our favorite places to get caffeinated – Dom’s Coffee. It’s just so tasty, and the atmosphere is spot on. We ran into two of Christa’s friends – Victoria & Karri, both working hard on their businesses! #bossladies

Now we’re back in the real world, hoping this short week flies by so we can resume lounge mode. Christa is off to Denver on Sunday for a week of skiing, so stay tuned for that as well! How were your holidays?! xo


For the Love of Cafés


We’re probably all feeling the same way these days when it comes to cozy-ing up on the weekends and being shamelessly mellowed out. Something about the middle of January just does that to us, huh? Lately all we’ve been wanting to do is curl up at local cafés, kindle in hand, latte on the table, and just unwind. How divine to these spaces look? Makes you want to design a little corner/oasis right in your apartment, doesn’t it?

We’re hoping that this New England snow storm is just mild enough that we can still meet up in Boston, but wintery enough that we can wander out and search for a cozy café like these…
