Same Page Monday

Hi! It’s so good to be back!!  We’ve missed you!  We had SUCH a wonderful time in Europe.  We are currently gathering all the photos and videos that we took and we will be sharing them with you soon!  We can’t wait to tell you all about it.  We did have a bit of a scare – Snap Happy Caroline thought that she lost all of her #otteuropeaninvasion photos.  But with the help of Allison she was able to recover them!! (Emily is never any help in these sorts of situations – she thinks magic fixes computer problems.)  So stay tuned!  

What was the best part of the trip you ask?  It’s that we got to be together.  So cheesy – we know! (Patty would probably insert a #sorryimnotsorry hashtag here – we think she is the best hashtagger ever! Follow her at @pattyott.) 

Since it’s been awhile we will take this opportunity to get on the “Same Page”.  Here is a little recap of what’s going on:

Emily and Ivy are reunited.  While away, Emily had to look at photos of Ivy 57 times a day to help with her separation anxiety.  Emily is even wearing her hair like Ivy now…wavy.  And we noticed that Ivy’s white marking has taken the shape of a heart!  Emily’s little sweetheart.  Em&Ivy

Allison is back in the perfectly sunny and warm LA!  The only thing we can say about that is… WHATEVER!  She is excited to get back to life in LA and to working out at Tracy… especially after eating all those croissants!allison

Caroline is back in Lausanne with only 2 weeks left of school and finals.  Oh wait… she doesn’t sit still for very long.  This past weekend she and Hannah went on their last trip to Nice, France.  carolinenice We are loving her purple nails right now.  After finals, she heads back to Nantucket to help Emily open up the store!

Today marks the first official day back at Milly & Grace!  Time to start unpacking all the new goodies.  Opening day is April 25th! M&Gfreshstart

We can’t wait for summer!  We can’t wait to all be back together again!  And we can’t wait to get back to blogging!

Ott European Invasion


The Milly & Grace Girls are back together again!!! The entire family is visiting Caroline in Switzerland and traveling around Europe. So, we are going to take a bit of a break from blogging to enjoy this time together. We’ll be taking lots of pictures and video though and we cannot wait to share them with you guys! In the meantime, we’ll be posting lots on Instagram. Here are the links – @emilyhollister @allison_ott @caroline_ott – in case you want to see what we are up to while we are away!


Making Swiss Chocolate

The day after we got back from our trip to Istanbul, a bunch of us headed down to a little chocolate shop in town called Durig. And they taught us how to make chocolate truffles and chocolate molds! We each made our own chocolate animals by painting the details of the mold in white chocolate and then filling the mold with dark or milk chocolate. I chose a scrunny – a mix between a squirrel and a bunny! It was pretty cute. And incredibly delicious.  I’ll never ever get sick of Swiss chocolate. I really don’t know how they do it. It’s amazing. And I don’t know how I will live without it when I go back to America in a month!

*The song is Without You by David Guetta and Usher because…who can live without chocolate!
