Life Update – Easter 2017

Hello everyone, I feel like it’s been forever and a day since I wrote on my beloved blog. Life just gets so busy sometimes, and all of a sudden, months have gone by.

This is just a quick little update on everything that is going on and some future plans I have for this blog (looking for feedback). Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, I post almost daily and love interacting with you guys.

What’s been going on?

  • We spent our 1st year anniversary weekend at a charming bed and breakfast in Weston, Vermont. I had never spent much time in VT, except driving to/from Canada, but my husband grew up spending most winters there and he always spoke wonders about it. I was absolutely memorized by southern Vermont, the simplicity of life, how sweet the people are and their overall pace of life. We did nothing but relax for a full weekend, it was lovely. We stayed at The Inn at Weston and we highly recommend it, Bob and Linda, the owners/innkeepers made us feel like family.
  • We’re moving within our same building to a 2 bedroom corner apartment on a higher floor (better views) at the end of May. It’s much, much sooner than anticipated but we’re very excited.
  • Still not finished with my dissertation *sigh*. Working on it!
  • My best friend is moving to York, PA, a 5 hour drive from Hartford, a lot of mini road trips are coming our way, haha.
  • We’re using the snowball method to eliminate some of my debt (thankfully, just 1 credit card) before I have to start paying off my student loan at the end of the year.

Plans for the Blog/YT Channel 

  • Book reviews (homemaking/cooking/life/etc.) on the blog and YT channel.
  • 3 more giveaways.
  • Vlogs
  • Cooking videos
  • Apartment tour (once we move)


Any ideas are welcomed, I love getting you guys’ feedback.

  1. I can’t believe it has been 1 year since you got married. Time flies! Congrats on moving to a bigger apartment, I hope you get to be more comfortable.

    The snowball debt method is something I have been applying to my life as well and so far so good. Even though all my payments are up to date and have excellent credit (at least that’s what Credit Karma says lol) I hate seeing high bills and want to get them all to 0.

    I am very excited to read more of your blog posts and the videos you have planned. I was absent from the blogging world for a while but yours is definitely one of my favorites so I’m glad you’re still posting <3

  2. Nicole, I can’t believe it either. It’s crazy how time flies! We’re very excited about the apartment, since you have had experience working from home I’m sure you can appreciate J’s desire to have a separate home office that is not part of the living area. I let myself go into debt two years ago over a Christmas gift shopping spree, did I learn my lesson. Your words always inspire me and you’ve always supported all of my short-lived blogs; thankfully though it looks like this homemaking one is here to stay; THANK YOU! Your blog is also one of my favorites, can’t wait to see what you post in the future. Big hug!

  3. Que rico un año! I’ve always wanted to stay at a B&B. Your pictures made me want to even more ha! Glad you are almost done with ur credit card pq mija estoy student loans no dejan vivir a uno! Hopefully not ur case…besos!

  4. Siii, aún no lo puedo creer. You will love it, New England (specifically Vermont) has some gorgeous B&Bs. I’m hopeful it won’t be too, too bad. Love you, thank you for reading 🙂 kisses to L & P.
