Just a Sliver: TMM Day 10

The Miracle Morning: Day 10

This is a new kind of post on Just a Sliver - it's all related to the new look and feel of the blog. Reflecting more of what I am interested in, what I am exploring and learning, and what I want to share with readers. From these entries in personal development, I hope you'll get a few ideas to adopt in your own life. My favorite kinds of books to read are focused around personal development and business. I want to learn something that I can apply to my daily life and work. Right now if I'm … [Read More...]

Just a Sliver: LBI

Long Beach Island, NJ

Last weekend we were lucky enough to finally visit Long Beach Island, NJ. My cousins have spent their summers at the beach since they were little so it was really great to get down there for a long weekend with everyone. LBI is a little slice of heaven. Beautiful beach, bikes everywhere, great beach houses, seafood, and the best jelly donuts (ever). We even tried our hand at surfing thanks to a lesson from my very talented cousin. While it did not go so well for me (at all) it was so fun to try, … [Read More...]

Just a Sliver: Strawberries & Cream Icebox Cake

Strawberries & Cream Icebox Cake

Although it seems like fall is right around the corner, I am holding on to the beautiful Summer days we are still enjoying in New England. Pumpkin will have its time, but not in August (or September..it's my rule.)

The NEW Just a Sliver

Helloooo new blog design! After almost 3 years with a beautiful baking-centric design, it was time for a refresh. I was itching for a change...not just in the design but in the content as well. For a while I've been wanting to turn Just a Sliver into a space to speak about all things I enjoy. This will still include a lot of baking but will also be a creative outlet for adventures we've been on and life lately. I loved working with my former designer of Bellano Web Studio and through their … [Read More...]

Just a Sliver: Boston & Cape Cod

Boston & Cape Cod

It's only taken 3 weeks but here is our 4th of July trip to Boston & Cape Cod! We had some friends from Canada join us for a New England  long weekend. We walked most of the Freedom Trail in Boston on Thursday and then took off for the Cape on Friday morning. I loved walking the Freedom Trail - it's such a great way to see the city and a lot of the "main attractions." We didn't head over the bridge to Charlestown but instead veered back to Beacon Hill which is always easy on the eyes. … [Read More...]
