Nine + Sixteen

Hi!  My blog is my journal.  It's a snapshot of motherhood, everyday life in a small town, our celebrations and the joys of making a cozy and happy home.  I have a weakness for vacations in New England, wearing dresses all year round, Barefoot Contessa recipes, little boys in wellies, chocolate anything and gingham.  Thank you for reading!
