This story begins way back in the early months of starting our blog, about 4 months ago. Sue Edelstein, on the board at Litchfield Hills Rowing Club saw what we were about to embark on and wanted in right away. Sue has excellent foresight. She wanted us to come and experience the joys of rowing so that we could spread the word. She’s extremely enthusiastic and passionate about the rowing experience, so of course we said yes. But first we had to do some pre-training to get us ready to get on the water come spring…which at that time seemed like a million days away!

Let it be known that neither Lora nor I are known in our circles for our culinary skills. Luckily we both have men in our lives that make sure we don’t starve, or eat cereal for dinner, because left to our own devices, well…We’re never against expanding our skill set, and thus, a celebrity cooking spot was born. Ok, so it’s not so much of the “cooking” and more of the “preparing” in our first video. We’re going to work up to cooking. Our first cooking segment was to be salads – perfect, as it is almost summer after all!

Unlocking Litchfield was invited to attend and cover the After School Art Program’s Celebration of Young Writers 10th anniversary event on May 30th. We’d heard wonderful things, so we were excited to get our casual chic on, head over to The Gunnery in Washington, and see what it was all about.

We’ve been drooling over Robert Couturier’s Instagram account for quite some time now. “Oohing” and “ahhing” over pictures of his home, furnishings, gardens, and fabulous lifestyle! We wanted to meet the stylish man behind “Robert Couturier, Inc.” – the International Architect and Designer. No problem; we put our wishes out into the world (using our trade secret method), and “Voila”; an invitation to tour Robert’s home pops into our inbox. The power of the Universe is real!
