Greetings From Schenectady!

Hello from New York, everyone! After rolling into town late Wednesday night while accompanying my friend Troy here for a work function he’s participating in, I’m going to be hanging around town (and if you’re having trouble pronouncing the name- no worries- I definitely am too!) and parts of Albany throughout this coming weekend. I’m […]

Cider, Antiques and Cheese-To-Share…

One of my favorite Early Fall/Late September traditions is visiting one or more of the multiple Autumn/Harvest Festivals we have around various towns and counties in New England. There’s something really fun about meeting and supporting local vendors, artists, etc. and I often walk away having discovered really great products, food, gifts, so on and […]

Local Loves: Sunny Mountain Farm

I had mentioned in my last post that I have been spending a lot of time back and forth between my apartment and The Berkshires in recent days since Troy is visiting from the West Coast for work- which means that on our respective days off I have been trying to pack as many Fall-esque […]

The September Chronicles…

It really is the greatest time of the year here in New England- and I have been having a blast these past couple of weeks!

I’ve been enjoying as many early-Autumnal activities as I can on my half days/days off/weekends. This includes browsing the first pumpkins to make an appearance at Red Apple Farm– and playing with the […]

Local Loves: Saw Dust Coffee House & Dessert Bar

One of my favorite things to do on rainy, semi-chilly early-to-mid Autumn days off (much like today, coincidentally enough! It’s such a relief following the most recent heat wave!) is stop to get a hot coffee and warm up in the comforts of a cozy coffee shop/café. The more rustic and independent, the better- since […]

“There’s Black Jack and Poker and the Roulette Wheel…”

How has it been a week since I was gallivanting around Las Vegas and getting ready to see my second Killers show in the month of August? Time really does fly when you’re having fun, working on your tan and eating fantastic food among friends and family- but I’ve been home for a couple of […]
