Blogging has honestly been one of the most rewarding and fun experiences of my life.  But with a full-time job, it’s a lot of work and a lot of juggling.  Luckily for me, my other-half is just as passionate about photography as me.  Our weekends usually consist of some type of adventure to a new place in order to get the perfect backdrop for my outfit of choice.  It’s been a blessing to find something that we both love doing and we’ve found our way into some of the most beautiful local (and not so local) places that we never would have seen if we weren’t looking.

Case in point, this gorgeous winter day of errands by the CT coast led us to a castle built in 1914, which led to an hour-long hike around the estate exploring and taking in the scenery.  Hope you all had a fab weekend!

    I definitely don’t blame you for taking an extra hour to check out the scenery here. Amazing!

    I love the fur vest with the denim. I think I might have to try that on a slightly warmer day (although it’s been too chilly here not to wear lots of layers and wool)!
