Hi, I'm Anaise! 


It rhymes with lace. 









I met my husband 10 years ago at a pizza restaurant called Boston's. I know what you're thinking, Boston isn't known for it's pizza, is it? I'm just as confused as you are. And no, the pizza wasn't any good. It's actually a burger restaurant now.

He asked me to cover his shift one day so that he could go surfing. At first I thought it was a little weird, it was October at the time, but he was very cute - he had a precious boyish face and long curly brown hair, how could I not instantly fall in love (or turn down his request)? The rest is history. We have a 2 year old daughter named Emerson, and a sassy dachshund named Reese.

We reside in Hartford, Connecticut in a beautiful light filled loft apartment. Our building used to be an old tire factory, and has so much character. It makes me feel like we are fancy NYC dwellers, without all the hustle and bustle of big city living. 

These are a few of my favorite things:  traveling, interior design & home decor, dachshunds, yoga, Charleston SC,  barefoot beach walks, breakfast for dinner, chai lattes,  vintage Volkswagens, The Beatles, and Farmer's Market Sunday mornings. 

I'm almost always listening (and singing along in my horrible singing voice) to 90's and early 2000's music. 

I have seen every episode of the Golden Girls.

I love the idea of minimalism and tiny houses, and hope to build one of our own one day. Less is more.
