Adopt, Don’t Shop

The Andrews family of dogs 2001-2014 Losing a pet is hard. Just ask any person lucky enough to have had a pet in their home. The loss leaves a hole in your heart that seems impossible to fill. And if you have enough pets throughout your life, there might come a time where you think "That's it, no more animals.…
3 Things: Iceland

3 Things: Iceland

Our founder and friend, Stef, is currently on a trip to Iceland, y'all! We are ridiculously excited for her to experience the majesty that it is and for her to use her genius level photography skills to get some fabulous shots --the gorgeous landscape begs to be photographed. (These photos are from my trip.) It seems like Iceland has become…
3 Things: Culinary Explorations (and Le Creuset Obsessions)

3 Things: Culinary Explorations (and Le Creuset Obsessions)

I love to cook. Scratch that, I loved to cook. I kind of lost my passion for it in the last few years, until I got my first Le Creuset Dutch oven. (Speaking of which, have you seen the limited edition Le Creuset Beauty and the Beast Soup Pot? We're dying.... ) Thankfully, I'm starting to enjoy cooking again because…

3 Things: Spoiled Rotten Furbabies

One of Stef's dogs Millie, laying on the couch she's not supposed to be on... If you're like me, you probably have a pet. If you're an animal-obsessed weirdo like me, you might spoil them and treat them like children...furry children who eat their own #2's. I recently decided to win the award for "Pet Mom of the Year" and…
3 Things: Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow

3 Things: Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow

Valentine's Day is just days away. And while I'm a fan of treating my husband with love and adoration 24/7, 365 days a year, I do still observe Valentine's Day. We usually get each other small, goofy gifts that will make the other person laugh, nothing too crazy or expensive. Literally, just a token of esteem. We NEVER go out…
3 Things: Sick Day

3 Things: Sick Day

At the time of typing this, I haven't been sick yet this year. Knock on wood. I know it's coming because if there is something contagious going around, I'm getting it. Colds and flu LOVE me. And people with colds and flu always tend to sneeze/cough directly in my walking path when I'm in a store (Stay HOME, sick people!)…
3 Things: Old Favorites

3 Things: Old Favorites

I've been thinking about things that I love that stand the test of time, at least for me. When I love something, I'll return to it time and time again without ever getting sick of it. And when it comes to beauty items, I'll even stockpile things I love so I can delay the day when it's discontinued and I…
3 Things: Winter Wonderland

3 Things: Winter Wonderland

We're officially well into winter now and it's bitterly cold in New England (where I'm based). The snow blower is constantly at the ready and my wood stove is officially my best friend. Seriously, y'all need one! While we haven't had a huge snowstorm just yet, every year the hubby and I prepare for "The Big One." We are rural,…

3 Things: What I’m Most Looking Forward to in 2017

photo: Nordic Visitor Let’s escort out 2016 and welcome in 2017 with a series of we heart this’ favorite time-killing game: 3 things! Join us, won't you? Call me old fashioned, but I still feel a sense of hope when the new year rolls around. And believe me, I took a beating in the “hope” department this year (haven't most…
3 Things: Goodbye 2016; Hello 2017

3 Things: Goodbye 2016; Hello 2017

This weekend we ring in the New Year and all the hope and possibility one can muster for 2017! I have to say that 2016 started out horribly for me, but there was some good throughout the year. Then there were a few more bumpy lows along the way (I cannot believe David Bowie, Prince and Carrie Fisher are gone!)…
