OOTD: Pumpkins and Puffy Vests

It was entirely too perfect for the first weekend of October to be cloudy (with occasional bursts of sunshine) and crisp- with cool breezes that didn’t feel like you were being chilled to the bone when they hit you, but were just strong enough to give the leaves that were ready to fall off the […]

The September Unwind…

In-between working and my usual errand-running these past few days, I’ve been having a little “foodie tour” around the Pioneer Valley while Troy is back in town for both business and a mini-vacation this week- dining out at places that have made appearances in past “Local Loves” posts like Champney’s in Deerfield and The People’s […]
