Happy October’s Eve, everyone! As excited as I am to dive right into my favorite month out of the year and all things Halloween- and also head out to New York a little later on today for a wedding I’m attending this weekend- I wanted to tip my hat to September 2022, first- a month […]

“Oh, What a Night! Late September…”

Oh, it’s good to be home! After a beautiful and scenic drive home from my recent and brief stay in Schenectady, New York– I’m back in Western Massachusetts/The Berkshires and relaxing in my apartment with a couple days off this week before I pack up and head back to a different section of New York […]

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.

All the Fall Things…

Given my fully-packed schedule in the coming weeks (including dinner dates, trips to New Hampshire AND New York- and Football season, baby!) 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 […]
