Brunching in Newport…

It’s no secret that I love Newport, Rhode Island. It’s where I rang in 2021– and it’s where I spend a lot of time in the Fall and Winter since the scenery is always breathtaking. I love the area in the Summertime, too- but it tends to get a little crowded along the beaches, the […]

Local Loves: Roseland Cottage

Given the area in Southern Massachusetts where my mother currently resides, it’s not uncommon at all for me to cross over state lines into Connecticut and visit small, quaint towns like Pomfret or Woodstock whenever I visit her.

Not-So-Local-Loves: Peppermill

Greetings from Las Vegas, Nevada! I’ve been here since this past Saturday morning to visit with Kelsey’s family and spend a few nights baby-sitting the kids while Andrew is getting acclimated to an overnight shift at his new job.

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday, so finding things I loved from this past […]

While my “Local Loves” posts throughout the month of October have predominantly been about macabre and unusual New England oddities- […]

Summer Vacation Part III – San Diego

Apart from Las Vegas, I think the only other city I travel to the most would be San Diego, California. I’ve been making yearly trips out that way for over ten years now- so much in fact that I can get around without a GPS/Google Maps, have my “regular” places to eat, shop and stay- […]

Summer Vacation Part II – The Mojave

When driving, it takes approximately five hours to get from Las Vegas, Nevada to San Diego, California- and it’s a drive I’ve made multiple times to and from with Kelsey over the years. Whether it was to visit her family, catch a show, have some much needed “girl time” with our playlists and iced coffees- […]
