The New FFC411

Recently a lot of people have inquired when I might start blogging again and now that things have settled down a little it felt like the right time to start it up again - in a small way!

I looked back at the blog, interested to see where I left off, and it was right when we found the listing for our new house. Things got a little crazy from that point on - we put in an offer on the house {a short sale}, waited a few months to hear - we got it! - on the same day my husband changed jobs, then we moved out of our condo in Greenwich and in with my parents for two month while we renovated our new place. Things are finally starting to come together and we couldn't be more in love with our new house, our new neighborhood and our "new" town. All the more things to share about what I love in FFC!

So you'll definitely see a few more home improvement sneak peeks, decorating posts and DIY projects as we take on our own little fixer upper. But we'll still be sharing lots of things to do in FFC, recipes as we try to brush up our cooking skills, travel posts and of course lots and lots of books! #iheartbooks

To kick it off, we'll just say while we've been gone we've been turning this...

Into this...

Glad to be back! xo
