PUPdate: 7 Weeks Old

We brought home our little nugget at 7 weeks old and for all the preparation we did, we still weren’t ready. It’s definitely one of those situations where someone can tell you something a million times but you never really understand until you’re in it. Our first week with Cody was nuts, to say the least. It was great to have a long weekend to launch our puppy-parent-ship. However, it was anything but restful. Having…

Decorating Your Front Steps For Fall

There is something so very “New England” about front steps filled with mums and pumpkins. The pops of color catch your eye and compliment the changing leaves in the area. A warm September definitely brought an extended summer feeling, but now that it’s October, everything “fall” is fair game. Today I’m sharing how I decorated our front porch steps for fall, in case you were looking or a little inspiration! Shop Local… While I’m a…

PUPdate: The First Night

I’m typing this as Cody naps. Man, oh man, do puppies sleep a lot. Otherwise it’s poop, play, and snuggle. Kind of a reasonable lifestyle if you ask me! Yesterday we picked up Cody in Hardwick, Vermont. We said thank you to our lovely breeder Harold and drove the hour to Ryan’s parent’s place in Chelsea. Cody showed a bit of distress in the car, but the moment we arrived, he was full of joy…

A Comprehensive Guide to Hiking Glacier National Park

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write this blog post, but in my defense, I started a new school year just a day after this trip ended. Talk about a quick turn around! Ryan’s family and I flew out to Montana at the end of the summer to spend a week just outside of Glacier National Park. It was an incredible trip filled with great hikes, epic views, terrifying roadways, and Air…

PUPdate: Supplies to Buy

Big news here: we’re getting a puppy! After a long, ten month wait, there is a little black lab pup who will be ours in just a few days. I only think about it twenty times a day or so. Today I spent my lunch break googling “proper ways to hold a puppy.” Three days and counting.. not that I’m counting or anything.. As soon as we got the news that there was a puppy…

Caitlin’s Confections: Wild Blueberry Jam

Our first summer in our house, we discovered that the wetlands in our backyard are full of blueberry trees. I can go out for hours in my wellies and pick until my bucket is full. Each year, I gather about 16 cups total. Then, I schedule a jam day (which went much smoother this year compared to last!) If you look up anything to do with canning online, you’ll find suggestions for specific supplies. I…
