A Month to Remember: September 2020

“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” That’s a quote I’ve been thinking about quite often throughout this past month- although I honestly have no idea who originally said it and Google has provided little to no help whatsoever with my attempts to track down the author. I’ve found that when […]

Paying Respects to Mercy Brown…

It might not be October yet (but it’s close!) and we may still be a few weeks away from Halloween- but that doesn’t mean I can’t discover/visit and share some of the more creepy, macabre things around the Northeast. Along with being undeniably beautiful and picturesque- New England is also reportedly one of the most […]

Local Loves: Red Apple Farm

Out of all the local places I typically visit every September/October- Red Apple Farm in Phillipston is the one I discovered only fairly recently- with my first trip there taking place last Fall when I went to a Harvest Festival with a couple of my friends who were out my way for an extended weekend.

I was even more surprised to […]

A Month to Remember: August 2020

When ranking my favorite seasons, Fall definitely comes first, followed by Summer, then Spring- and finally- dreadful Winter. I’ve shoveled my way through enough blizzards and driven over enough icy roads in my lifetime to say that with the utmost certainty and confidence. And although Fall is just around the corner (I say it begins […]

A Few of My Favorite Things: August 2020

Although Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season- it’s a little crazy to me that the Summer is nearly over already (although I really shouldn’t be surprised by anything happening in 2020- including time seemingly slowing down/speeding up at random.) While I fully intend to look back on this past month and do my write-up on […]
