    Branch Brook Park – Cherry Blossom Festival

    If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen in my stories that I went to Branch Brook Park in Newark yesterday to see the cherry blossoms. The large park has a week long cherry blossom festival every spring and today is the last day. Obviously you can go any time while the trees are in bloom to see them – you’re not limited to this one week – but since cherry blossoms only last about 2 weeks you’ve got to be quick about it. Also the festival just means that each day there is some sort of special event to celebrate the cherry blossoms at the park.…

    #fbf Daffodils

    My flashback Friday, #fbf, this time around is from just last weekend. I was taking some outfit photos at my parents house and I took a few photos of my mom’s daffodils that have just come out. I love daffodils and the bright yellow is so cheery! My parents get a ton of deer in our yard and they eat everything. But, someone recently told my mom that deer don’t eat yellow flowers – I haven’t looked in to why that is or if it’s true. But so far, so good!

    Werther’s Care Package

    Last year sometime I wrote about how I was loving the Werther’s Original Cocoa Creme’s. They’re seriously so good! So I was absolutely delighted when Werther’s reached out to me and wanted to send me a little care package including their new vanilla creme’s. A little background on my love for Werther’s. When I was little I was never the kind of kid who loved sweets and candy. I’d eat a piece here and there, but I wasn’t one of those kids who thrived on sugar. However, one of my favorite sweets were the Werther’s hard candies. Those hard caramels definitely remind me of my childhood and are one of…

    March 2019 Favorites

    Another month coming to an end, can you believe it? We’re a 1/4 of the way through 2019 already! Yesterday, I had an early spring photoshoot with Lauren and I can’t wait to see all the photos and share some with you. Until then and since today is the last day of March, I’m sharing just a few favorites from this month. I actually don’t have that many to share, so this should be quick! First up, my new robe. I wanted a 2nd robe for the days when my other robe is in the wash. I saw this Top Shop light blue plush robe with cute rainbows on it…

    #fbf Foggy Boardwalk

    Happy Fri-yay! This week felt about a year long and I’ve heard multiple people say the same thing. I don’t know why it felt so long. I wasn’t busier than usual. I didn’t have more work than usual. It just seemed to drag and feel extra long. But, it’s finally Friday so I wanted to share another old photo and do a Flashback Friday, #fbf. Like last time when I shared green and white flowers, I was scrolling through photos on my phone and came across this one from last June. Last June, I was chaperoning a field trip for the seniors at my school to Wildwood. For those of…

    Are You Ready To Take The Next Step In Life?

    Source Throughout all of our lives, we tend to go through certain periods of transition.

    Green & White Flowers

    I was scrolling through my camera roll on my phone and I came across this close up shot I took of green and white flowers back in 2017. I don’t really know why I took this photo. Maybe it was for my Instagram stories to show off a new bouquet I got. I don’t really know, but I thought I would share it on here for a flashback Friday, #fbf. And since St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend it seemed only fitting! Have a great Friday! I’ve felt so off this week and even yesterday I had to think for a minute about what day it was and was happy when…
