I welcome March with open arms. It’ll be a busy, busy month for me, but it’s all good.

As last year’s Hall of Fame recipient, I’ll be traveling to Los Angeles, CA next week to the 2017 Design Bloggers Conference, where I’ll have the honor of presenting the award for Best Overall Design Blog to the next well-deserved winner. Can’t wait!

The following week, and a little closer to home, as their Lifestyle contributor, I’ll be visiting Scot Haney and Kara Sundlun of WFSB-3’s Better Connecticut in their studio’s kitchen, where I’ll be stirring and serving up something delicious for St. Patrick’s Day.

At the end of the month, we’ll be prepping Connecticut Country House for several shoots, including a much anticipated shoot with Country Living magazine. Quite simply, we’ll be decking the halls one more time!

During all of this, as the first day of Spring fast approaches, I look forward to noticing and appreciating the warm way the slowly awakening earth smells, longer hours of daylight, first blooms of snowdrops and crocuses, even the unpredictability of our New England weather!

Wishing you all a fabulous month ahead!

Love, Nora

    Born in Norwich so when I read your posts and see your pictures it’s like going back home. I live in Indiana now. Love everything you do.

      Hi Faye! You know, it’s crazy, but I never posted a recipe for these!! We’re launching a new Recipes category on the blog, and I will be sure to add it! I will be sure to make it a blog post first. Thank you! All the best, Love, Nora
