Falling For Fall…

I’ve made no attempts to hide my excitement and long-standing love of the Fall, especially having grown up here in New England- but it also happens to be one of the busiest times of the year for me!

A Berry Good Day…

Birthday Wishes…

Having a birthday in the middle of a work week, in the middle of Winter- in the middle of New England- and right smack in the middle of adulthood can seem a bit unceremonious. Sure, I could have taken a full day off from the office this past Wednesday and slept in- but then what? […]
