Lace Gingerbread Cookies

Lace Gingerbread Cookies_Twine And Braids

Getting this recipe up before December 25th is the real Christmas miracle.  Life has been a little different around here since my last post.  If you’ve been following along on Instagram you’ll know Erick and I recently got a new puppy! (Ranger, an eleven week old Siberian husky).  So between adjusting to life with him, […]

Preserving Your Wedding Bouquet – DIY

Wedding Bouquet DIY_Twine And Braids

I’ve been married for five months now and I’m still wrapping up wedding items, including a wedding album I still need to put together and a dress I should probably do something with.  But one thing I tackled recently was this DIY to preserve a tiny bit of my wedding bouquet.  The day after my […]

Weekend in the Adirondacks

Erick and I are feeling relaxed and refreshed after spending the weekend in the woods of the Adirondacks.  We both turned thirty in the beginning of September and decided to plan a fall getaway to celebrate.  While we were considering where to go we looked into a few ideas; a bed and breakfast somewhere in […]

Autumn Porch Decor

Erick and I are quickly learning how exhausting (and time consuming!) house hunting can be.  So we were both happy to take the past Sunday off so he could watch football and I could spend some time sprucing up our back porch for autumn.  After living in an apartment for four years I’ve been eager […]

Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake With Lavender Glaze

Blueberry Pound Cake_Twine And Braids

This is the first recipe post I worked on and photographed since we moved, and let me just say, it was hard.  I have less counter space and most of my kitchen supplies are in storage.  I also could not figure out where I was going to take the photos.  I started on the back […]

Wedding Day

Twine And Braids_Wedding

Erick and I got married!  It’s been almost three months now and I’ve been itching to share our wedding photos since the day we got them.  But, what I didn’t realize, is how hard putting this post together would be.  Not sure why.  It may be the struggle of wanting to share everything but also […]

We’ve Moved | Kitchen Update

We’ve moved!  If you’ve been following along on instagram you’ve probably noticed that we recently moved out of our Jersey City apartment.  That…was tough for me.  And I’m not talking about the move itself (which was miserable) but leaving the first apartment we shared together wasn’t easy.  So many wonderful and life changing memories were […]

Lavender French 75 Cocktail

Full disclosure – I thought I invented this cocktail.  It wasn’t until I started researching for a name that I discovered it was already a thing – the Lavender French 75.  It was very Michael Scott from The Office “orange-vod-juice…ka” moment – (hopefully you get that reference).  Anyway, I got the inspiration for this drink […]

Botanical Easter Eggs

Don’t mind me, just over here squeezing in my Easter egg post…two days before Easter.  Whoops!  We’re about a month out from our wedding and I still have a long list of to-do’s so I’m just gonna go ahead and blame it on that.  Anyway, it’s really no biggie that this DIY for botanical Easter […]

A Bridal Tea Party

This past weekend my mom and closest ladies in my life threw me a very special Bridal Tea Party.  Since before I was even engaged, my mom has had a vision for my bridal shower.  She has been helping with the wedding planning every step of the way, but the shower was something she could […]
