Cozy, Snuggly Bed

When it starts to get cold in Vermont, everyone comes out of the woodwork and wants to talk about their bedding. Maybe because in the Summer the last thing we want to do is be covered by our sheets and blankets, yet when the weather turns, we turn for those covers!

I’ll tell you what’s on my bed, year round. We sleep on Libeco Linen Sheets in the Summer, and at the turn of the weather this year I put on Coyuchi’s Cloud Brushed Flannel sheets. There’s a reason they’re one of Oprah’s Favorite Things. They are heeeeeavenly and so warm, don’t pill, they stay put on the bed and don’t get all mushed up in the middle. They wash so well are so nice and thick. These may be on my bed until July, haha!

Next layer is a staple on our bed, year-round. Traditions Linens Louisa Coverlet. When I tell you I’m obsessed with this, I’ve never been more serious in my life, lol. This blanket, well, Coverlet is the best. It’s machine washable, holds up to my kids, my dog and my big burly husband. It still looks brand new after numerous washes and plenty of dryer time. I LOVE this thing; and they come in 5 colors - White, Linen, Ivory, Charcoal, and Mist. I’d say they are included in probably 75% of the special orders for Bedding we do in the store.

Next layer is our Duvet. I have an All Year Weight Synthetic Down Duvet on our bed now. It’s the 'base level’ of our supplier’s Duvets and I’ve been so beyond impressed with this Duvet. I remember one time a lady coming in the store whom had just purchased one of their Siberian White Goose Down Duvets. We had a store full of people and when I asked her how she was liking it, she responded “well, I have a problem”, and I thought “oh no!!" She responded with “I never want to get out of bed!” Phew! The Duvets truly give you the lightness you desire with the warmth you crave. And the Baffled Box Construction on all of their blankets keep all of the fill in place.

It’s almost Thanksgiving!!!! My fave time of year is at our fingertips! The hustle and bustle, the lights going up all over our quaint little town and the ever falling snow just makes everything so wonderful. I have lots of family coming to our house for Thanksgiving - I LOVE cooking cooking - all. day. long. If you follow me on Instagram, you hear that alot :)

Jumping in to the World of Blogging

Why, hello there world!  People often ask me where I get my motivation from for my Instagram page, and how do I know what to say on there.  Truth is, I just talk.  I type as I just talk, and at the end I wrap it up with a "goodnight folks" or something along that line.  Basically, that's what I'm going to do here, is just talk!  I just turned 37, am a Mom of 2, a wife and a business owner.  That's my life in a nutshell.  Just about everything I do throughout my day falls under one of those categories.  I'm snuggling *mom*, I'm re-ordering for the gadget wall *business owner* or I'm talking real estate with my husband *wifey*.  

Graham and I met in 2004 while he was playing professional hockey and I was working at Planet Dog in Portland, Maine.  Boy, those were some fun years - young, carefree, and nothing to worry about except what we were going to do that night for dinner.  Of course getting paid to be an athlete is always a heavy weight on your shoulders but he loved every second of it, spending his days at the rink and his afternoons playing video games with his teammates.  The good ol' days!

Jump ahead a few years, and here we are living in Stowe, Vermont, raising our 2 awesome kiddos, loving our life in the mountains.  An opportunity came along to purchase a beautiful storefront on Main Street in our quaint little town so we jumped on it.  It's not often something comes for sale on our little street, and I'm so proud to have brought our building back to life!  

It's 7am and time to get the kids going for school - so, until next time friends!
