Quick trip to upstate NY

It’s been a while since we posted in our diary! We took a quick trip upstate this weekend to spend some time in Saratoga, NY, with Kevin’s family - and on our way home, we made a quick pit stop at our old stomping grounds! Read more »

Visiting NYC!

We are HUGE fans of the TV show Friends, so when we had the chance to attend the Friends Experience in NYC this past Friday, we were so excited! We also had not spent time in Manhattan since early 2020, prior to the pandemic. The city is so much quieter than it used to be, but it felt more like normal life to go into the city Read more »

Beautiful Spring Weekend

It was an absolutely beautiful weekend here on Long Island. It’s nice to finally get some sunshine and warm weather. Yesterday (Saturday) we took Jack on an adventure to a local dog-friendly park and let him explore. Today we got some fresh air and went for a long bike ride around our town! We loved getting to enjoy the Read more »

National Pet Day!

We are celebrating National Pet Day today by cuddling and hanging out with our dog, Jack! Jack loves kids and can’t wait to have a younger brother or sister to play with and protect. He always sees kids outside our street and is so excited when Spring rolls around so he gets to socialize more. Read more »

Florida Vacation!

We recently took a trip to Florida (for the first time in over a year!) to visit family over Spring break. Kelly’s brother and his husband live in Miami, and Kevin’s parents spend the winters in Delray Beach. It was great to get out of New York for a few days, see family, and spend some time on the beach! We also loved Read more »

Happy Spring!

The weather was absolutely beautiful here on Long Island for the first weekend of spring! We enjoyed a stroll through the village where we live and did some window shopping .... and then we took a nice long walk around the lake at a local park. It was so nice to get some fresh air and see so many people out and about enjoying Read more »

Celebrating Birthdays

Yesterday, along with some friends, we planned a small car parade and outdoor celebration for a friend’s sweet daughter’s first birthday. We were so thrilled to finally meet little Hannah and celebrate her birthday! She was born right before COVID hit, so we hadn’t gotten to meet her yet. She was so excited and clapped Read more »

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day! We enjoyed some time together as a family this afternoon and then went out to dinner at a local restaurant. It was delicious and great to spend some time together. We also try really hard to support as many of the local businesses in our town as possible. We hope everyone had a great Read more »

We love to cook!

One of our favorite activities to do together and even by ourselves is to cook! We usually do some meal prepping so that we don’t have to cook every night, so often we will make extra portions. Thankfully we had some leftovers of this because it was delicious! We actually made the same meal last week and recreated it Read more »

Relaxing at Home

One of our favorite things is getting time to cuddle on the couch as a family. Both of our jobs are demanding, but it’s so important for us to spend time together as a family and unwind at the end of the night. Can’t wait to add a little one into our cuddle sessions! Read more »

Home Improvement Projects

We are currently having some construction done in our house on our spare bedroom that we hope will one day be a nursery. Here is an in-progress shot! We can’t wait to show off the finished room :) Read more »

Happy New Year

We are a little behind in posting this, but we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We rang in the new year in our finest loungewear, with our pup, and with a couple of friends while on our ski trip in Pennsylvania. It was so relaxing to be in the mountains with nothing else to do so we could really enjoy each other. Read more »

Much Needed Trip

One of our favorite parts of winter in the Northeast is getting to take ski trips with our closest friends. After a year of not traveling and not getting to leave Long Island, we are so happy to be spending some time in the mountains skiing and relaxing with friends. This was the perfect way to refresh after a challenging Read more »

Snow Storm in NY! ❄️

We had our first snow storm in a couple of years this week! We were so excited for everything to turn into a winter wonderland - and just in time for Christmas! Jack was definitely confused at first since he hadn’t seen snow in a long time, but then he was excited to play and explore the neighborhood - certainly the whole Read more »

Work From Home Life

Is anyone else’s dog absolutely living the dream this year? Work from home life has sure been different. Kelly, as a small business owner, has been back to work, but Kevin is still working from home and likely will be for most of 2021! Jack has become accustomed to multiple walks a day and always having a cuddle buddy! He Read more »

Nutcracker Season

Kelly is a proud dance studio owner, and obviously performances this year are so different. This time last year we were putting on a full-scale Nutcracker ballet production, and we had such an amazing time. This year, we got creative and live streamed a virtual mini Nutcracker from inside our studio. The Nutcracker is one of Read more »

Christmas Time

Who else is decorated for Christmas already?! We started right after Thanksgiving this year…. we felt we needed the extra Christmas cheer after this crazy year. We hope everyone is finding a way to enjoy the holiday season! Read more »

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! It was a bit different than previous years, but we were so grateful to spend time with some family and celebrate with a delicious meal. We hope that you enjoyed your day however you celebrated :) Read more »

Relaxing Saturday

We tried out the salt cave at a local spa yesterday! We both needed some relaxation from a crazy work week, and this was amazing. Salt caves, or halo therapy, help with breathing and immunity, which is obviously so important during the pandemic. Plus it was so soothing in there that we both fell asleep :) It felt good to Read more »

Family dinner

Last night, we enjoyed a fun family dinner at home with both of our parents. The weather was so warm and absolutely beautiful for November in NY - we were even able to enjoy some snacks outside before it got too dark. It was great to relax with family after a crazy work week! Read more »

Happy Halloween

We hope everyone had a great Halloween! The weather was finally nice (but a bit chilly) in NY after we had what seemed like weeks of rain. We enjoyed a quiet evening hanging out with a couple of friends. All 3 of us (including Jack, of course!) were superheroes! Kelly dressed as Wonder Woman, Kevin as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Read more »

Great Day with Great Friends

We had a fun day with some good friends in Long Beach today. Kevin’s parents have a beautiful apartment on the ocean, so we spent some time there and had brunch. Our friends had never been to Long Beach, so it was fun to hang out and introduce them to some cool spots. The day concluded with the crazy Penn State football Read more »

Sunday Family Time

We enjoyed a leisurely Sunday hanging out as a family. It was nice to have a few hours to relax and snuggle on the couch… and best of all, sleep in! It was much needed to recharge for the new week. We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Read more »

Morning Family Time!

Family time is so important to us - its the best way to start the day! Whether it’s taking the dog for a walk together or spending 5 minutes over coffee/tea as we did this morning, it helps us reset and get ready for the day ahead! This mornings weather was beautiful (it hit about 70 degrees in NY today!!), so we took Read more »

Christmas in…. October?

Kevin has been working full time from home since the start of the pandemic (and no sign of going back to the office anytime soon!). Recently, I’ve come home from work a couple of times to find Kevin in a virtual meeting dressed like this…. fully decked out for Christmas! Kevin works for a TV network, and they are Read more »

Weekend Out East

It was another beautiful weekend here on Long Island, so we took advantage of the perfect weather and headed to the East End of the island for some fall activities with friends. This has become an October tradition for us, along with a few of Kevin’s cousins. We went apple picking, enjoyed some cider doughnuts, and did some Read more »

Beautiful Fall Weather in NY

We are having a really lovely fall so far in NY! Today is an absolutely beautiful day. I (Kelly) didn’t have to work today, so we spent the morning taking a long bike ride and checking out the water. It felt great to move! Read more »

Family time :)

I’m a few days late posting this, but this picture is from our Monday morning ritual. Or what has become our Monday morning ritual during COVID while Kevin is working from home :) Each Monday we workout and then take Jack, our dog, for a nice long walk. We also stop at Starbucks, which is around the corner from our house, Read more »

Biggest Downside of 2020- No Travel

We absolutely love to travel and explore our country and the world. Obviously with COVID 19, travel has been restricted. We sadly had a trip to Paris and Amsterdam booked for April of this year, which sadly had to be canceled. Our favorite places that we’ve been are Australia (here we are pictured in front of the Sydney Read more »

One of our favorite summer activities at home…

Both of us really love to garden. We’ve spent the past several years testing a variety of vegetables and doing a lot of trial and error to figure out what would grow well in our yard. This year we had a lot of success with lettuce, tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, and bell peppers. We really feel like we are getting the Read more »

Sunday dinner at our house!

We both love to cook, and this was the absolutely amazing dinner Kevin made for me last night. I had a very busy work weekend, and I came home Sunday to this great dinner and all of our weekend errands completed :) I am so grateful to have such a wonderful partner. Kevin made vegetarian spaghetti carbonara- so zucchini Read more »

End of Summer

We spent the last “official” weekend of summer on the beach with our friends and pup :) We can’t wait to add a little one into the mix. Read more »

New school/dance year!

It is certainly a much different start to the school year this year! I (Kelly) am a dance teacher and studio owner, and this is our new normal - each student gets their own spot spaced six feet apart, and we have taped boxes for them to dance inside. It has definitely been different trying to teach dance when we can’t Read more »

Relaxing Labor Day in Our Neighborhood

Yesterday, on Labor Day, we went for a nice long bike ride around our neighborhood. This was the first Labor Day Weekend in a few years that we had really nice weather the entire weekend! We both love to workout, and we are also so lucky to live less than a mile from the water. We took a nice ride down to the docks on our Read more »

Much needed weekend away!

Is this not the most incredible sunset you’ve ever seen? We just got back from a long weekend away on the east end of Long Island with some great friends. We were right around the corner from a little beach, so each night we walked down to watch the sunset. We were lucky enough to catch this beauty one of the nights! It Read more »
