  • Bermuda: Travel Guide Update

    We love Bermuda. I have been traveling to Bermuda for vacations since I was a baby so it feels like home to me and I love that my kids now feel that way too. I published a travel guide last year that has all the important information of where to eat, where to stay and of course what to do. I am happy to report I have some great additions to add to that list! (Read the original too!) Matt and I went out for Valentine’s dinner to Barracuda Grill which I mentioned before… but I forgot just how good it is! Easily the best restaurant on the Island! Barracuda…

  • 2019 in the rear view, Welcome 2020!

    Happy New Year! I hope you have all gotten back on track after the holiday run and are ready for 2020! I am excited to see what this year will bring and how I can continue to grow this space. Thank you so very much for all the support last year; it is invaluable! 2019 was an interesting year for me, lots of loss and lots of growth as I discussed in my post on turning 40… oh yes and I turned 40. I am happy to leave it all in the rear view and march ahead into the new decade with what I have learned. First I need to…

  • My Holiday Wishlist

    I have had lots of requests to know what I would like to see under the tree this Holiday season. To be honest… not much! I don’t feel like there are many things I NEED… okay, slippers, I need new slippers. That said, there are a few things I have been eyeing… Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • What To Wear For Thanksgiving 2019

    Thanksgiving is a little over two weeks away! Do you know what you are wearing? I don’t! We are headed to my in-laws this year and despite my propensity to over plan and pack (way) ahead I can barely wrap my head around Thanksgiving being in 2 weeks! I love dressing up a bit for the holiday. We always used to when I was little and it seems like putting on your best clothes honors what a special day it is. Gathering with friends and family, taking a breath and taking note of how much you have to be grateful and thankful for. So here are some ideas of what…

  • Boca Beach Club and What I Really Packed For Spring Break!

    After our Fall and Winter we really wanted to get away for a proper Spring Break. We needed some sunshine and some relaxation and not much else. But where to go? We rely heavily on Bermuda for getaways (why wouldn’t we!) but a friend recommended The Boca Beach Club, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, when we couldn’t find anything else that peaked our interest.  Amazingly they had availability and the flights into West Palm Beach weren’t astronomical when we went to book… only two weeks ahead. Sold. What was appealing about the property is it is actually three hotels under one umbrella. You have access to the restaurants and activities at…

  • Cocktails: Boca Heat

    Tequila and passion fruit. Match made in heaven. We had a marvelous time down at The Boca Beach Club over Spring Break… more on that later, as well as what I ended up really packing vs. what I packed in my dream suitcase … But at the resort they had a cocktail called the Boca Heat. The minute we took our first sip we know that it needed to be replicated at home. I have it close to perfect since passion fruit is not that easy to come by up here! The “heat” in this comes from the Jalapeno Tequila and the Ginger Liqueur, totally delightful and a great warm…

  • Packing for Spring Break!

    Spring Break is almost here! Well for us in New England anyways! After what seemed to be a long (LONG) winter I am excited to take off for a few days and get a little Vitamin D! I have been giving my closet (well, house too) a major overhaul and I am finding so much of my clothing for warmer temps is the wrong size, out of style or just plain tired. I have been hunting for a few new things to add to my warm weather gear while I pack for Spring Break! I have added some work out gear (just in case, also good for that plane ride!),…

  • Bermuda

      I will be honest. I put off writing this travel post for my beloved island of Bermuda. It was actually my brother Thad’s idea to incorporate more travel posts into A Modern Housewife’s space… specifically Bermuda as it was the first place he suggested I write about over a year ago. I’ve actually had a draft for “Bermuda” sitting for a year. Thad was a travel agent way back in the day before he went to graduate school for architecture. If you needed a trip planned, information on the best restaurant, what the most kid friendly spot was, ideas for an adventure, he had you covered. He was the…
