Planning The Thanksgiving Menu

Planning a Thanksgiving Menu | The Fresh Exchange

Image Via: Saveur Magazine Last year I hosted my family and a few friends at our home for Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun to have my family come in to see our new home and to be here while after just purchasing our house and to host them. It was one of those real adult moments in life, you know what I mean? The hard part was the meal planning. I had willing…

Enjoying Fall

Enjoying Fall with Bridge & Burn | The Fresh Exchange

Today, I wanted to share a little about enjoying fall with Bridge & Burn. Mike and I have been in love with the Bridge & Burn brand for a few years now. I discovered them when looking for a coat to take with me to Spain and Portugal over a year and a half ago.

These shifts in life…

Creating a Fall Gathering with Bota Box

Fall Gathering with Bota Box | The Fresh Exchange

As the days have become shorter, cooler, and many times rainier, it has become very clear that fall is in full swing. I have always been a fan of seasons for many reasons, but the main one is that each season contains rituals and specific routines in life. Fall for us has always meant cozy dinners, candlelight meals with friends, great wine, and even better conversation. It seems that after all the long and busy…
