A Month to Remember: October 2020

Happy (early) Halloween, everyone! I’ll be spending the next couple of days- including the holiday- back in Las Vegas before I head home this coming Sunday, and while I’m preparing to buy some Trick-or-Treating candy for Kelsey’s kids and pack my suitcase in advance to avoid any pre-flight headaches- I also wanted to take some […]

A Few of My Favorite Things: October 2020

When it came time to compile my list of “Favorites” for October 2020- I had to emerge from beneath a pile of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup wrappers and the discarded pieces from failed attempts at carving a somewhat decent Jack-O-Lantern.

Not-So-Local-Loves: The Neon Boneyard

About Sevilla Jones…

To get to New Boston, New Hampshire (a real place!) from where I live takes just under two hours if you’re traveling the back roads as I so often do- and although that may seem daunting to some- the view is worth the mileage. Winding around mountains, over rivers and streams, past sweeping farms and […]

OOTD: Snuggly Scarfigans…

Since this pandemic started, I’ve been visiting with my mother bi-weekly (as opposed to 2-3x a week, which was our previous arrangement back when I was still commuting to/from work.) Both her and I have been actively socially distancing from well, everyone- and wearing our masks/obsessively washing our hands- so we’re confident that when we […]
