A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch at Summer's Farm in Frederick, MD


Summer's Farm in Frederick, Maryland is one of my favorite places to take my girls during the fall season. (Those are my two daughters in the middle and their friends on the sides.) It's a family farm owned since the 1930s and has grown from a small dairy farm into the sprawling attraction it is now. For fall they're typically open towards the end of September through the beginning of November. In addition to the regular pumpkin patch adventure and corn maze, they host the Maryland Pumpkin Festival as well as field trips and children's parties.


There are so many games and activities for children at Summer's Farm, our favorites being the giant slides and the corn pits.


There is a wide variety of farm animals to look at, from goats and donkeys to pigs and various birds. This goat pictured above enjoyed a chin scratch from my daughter Kylie.



The corn maze is a must. For 2013 Summer's Farm displayed a design in their maze featuring the Baltimore Ravens.

My favorite part of going to Summer's Farm is the food. They sell the most incredible kettle corn, among other things at the concession. At the Country Market you can purchase large bags of kettle corn to take home, as well as goodies from McCutcheon's Apple Products. McCutcheon's is another family-owned business that started in the 1930s and is a local staple here in Frederick. My personal favorites from McCutcheon's are their apple cider and pumpkin butter.

You can find more info on Summer's Farm at their official website summersfarm.com. Where do you like to go to celebrate the season?
