Hollister House Garden in Washington reminds us of a classic English country garden. We spent a delightful morning touring the property with owner George Schoellkopf. What an inspirational realm for artists, photographers, and bloggers!

Allow us, and George to show you around…

Had Reis Learning Center been in our lives during our school years…well, who knows how many A’s we would have gotten! We visited this warm and welcoming hub on Bank Street in New Milford to observe kids learning academic things, then had a turn at learning something new ourselves, American Sign Language.

The Housatonic Valley Association was founded in 1941 to protect the entire Housatonic River Watershed, stretching 2,000 square miles of land. To help fund this mighty endeavor, the HVA Auction for the Environment began 28 years ago. This fun event brings our generous community together to bid on incredible auction items, sip, nibble, schmooze, and in turn, help conserve this beautiful spot we call home!

If it’s been a while since you listened to the Crash Test Dummies, do yourself a favor and listen to “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” right now and enjoy the eargasm! Such a great song, and such a great band.

You can catch them at the Ridgefield Playhouse on December 5th, but first, enjoy our interview!

Jon Secada is the real deal. With three Grammy Awards, 20 million albums sold, and starring roles on Broadway, he’s still not stopping. In fact, you can catch him at the Wall Street Theater on December 1st with The Colors of Christmas tour with Taylor Dayne, Peabo Bryson, and Deniece Williams. We were excited to chat with him about the concert, who he’d love to do a duet with, his favorite holiday song, and more. Keep reading…

We’ve been David Cook fans since his American Idol days (season 7 winner, 2008), so we were stoked to chat with him about the amazingness that’s been his life this year! Let’s just sum it up for you. He released his new EP Chromance, made his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots, and is now getting ready for an acoustic tour starting this month. Phew! So, grab your tickets to see him at The Ridgefield Playhouse on November 7th and Infinity Hall Norfolk on November 11th. Now, on to the interview!

How we love New York Fashion Week. It’s like the Superbowl of the fashion world, as we like to explain to our hubbies.
