a living room refresh at #thepalace…

I’ve mentioned the possibility of new furniture in previous posts…and we’re finally doing something about it! I’d been wanting to replace my couch & loveseat for a few months. They’re in decent shape (and will be on craigslist soon for any locals that might be interested), but I’ve had them forever. Or at least it seems like it. At first,…

summer vibes.

Photo by Michał Grosicki on Unsplash It seems like we waited forever for the weather to warm up this year…and now we are frequently waiting for it to stop raining. But. We are making the most of our summer, even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. I shared our Summer Bucket List on Instagram a few weeks ago. We’ve been steadily working through it,…

the D&K limitless list

Oh happy day…it's warm & sunny!! And, I saw blue water on my drive through the marina this morning. Seeing water, rather than ice, is always a happy thing.  Dan & I had a fun little weekend adventure – a short trip out of town for a Landmark Wisdom Community Sunday, with some shopping & fun restaurants along the way. Over…

spring at #thepalace…

I am determined to believe that SPRING is arriving in the Northeast any damn minute now. I've been pondering plants, deliberating about bookshelf styling, and contemplating some art refreshing. Note that I don't spring clean…I spring style. Things that I have my eye on… A split-leaf philodendron. My fiddle leaf has done EXTREMELY well. My dwarf myer lemon tree died…

a weekend of ease.

If I were to choose a word to describe our weekend, I think that I'd go with…ease. With wine being a very close second choice. Dan & I have both been feeling a little over-scheduled lately, so we intentionally dialed back the pace… *Kicked off the weekend by catching up with one of my besties over Thai food.  *I took…

weekend snapshots (the b&w edition)

Our weekends go by in a flash (yours too, huh?). We pack in a lot of activity over the course of 2+ days. This weekend, I decided to do a spin of Ali’s  The Weekend Lens, mixed with Lindsay’s Our Weekend in Black & White as we went about our life. My plan is to put all of the photos (just…

dominican republic : january 2017

Hello Punta Cana! Yes, we spent almost 10 days in December enjoying the Caribbean. Yes, we went back last week…'cause, y'know, why not?? Actually, it just so happened that Dan's company incentive trip was scheduled for January. SO MUCH FUN! We went zip-lining! Totally out of our comfort zone, and I am so glad that we did it. We couldn't…

In honor of both my birthday and my OLW, here are 10 (b/c 4 + 6) people, experiences, and things that I plan to celebrate this year… Dan. Sometimes I'm sad that I missed out on so many years with him…and then I remember that…

st maarten & st thomas : december 2016

Our beach day on St Maarten was a tiny bit rainy, but mostly just relaxing! We took a gondola ride to get a fab view of St Thomas! This guy is my favorite adventurer. I am so grateful that I get to explore the world with him. 

martinique & dominica : december 2016

Finishing up posting our December vacation photos before we head out on our January vacation (see how we're avoiding winter??)… We docked in Martinique after a sea day…perfect timing since I spent most of the sea day recovering from a stomach virus (which many people succumbed to over the course of the week). We walked & explored a bit, but…

saying so long to 2016…

This year was a whirlwind…travel, moving, changes, more travel, Landmark, little kids, big kids, many (many) bottles of wine, laughter, a few medical pauses, friends, family, and so much love. There were parts of 2016 that were, well…not so lovely (ahem)…but all in all? It was a pretty awesome year.  January : hola Mexico! February : we got engaged! (that's Mackie's "oh,…

st croix : december 2016

The first stop of our island adventures was St Croix… I think that I will always be in love with palm trees and beaches.  Fresh coconut water? Yes please!  Love.
