Meet Me in Chicago…

I had every intention of checking in from the road last Friday and sharing some photos/stories from my first day-or-so in Chicago- where I spent a few days leading into this past weekend for an impromptu getaway.

Local Loves: Hebert’s Candy Mansion

With Halloween approaching, and the need to stock up on candy for myself (and the Trick-Or-Treaters too, I guess? Mostly me, though!)

The Unsolved Case of The Kneeland Maids

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic last Fall, I found myself exploring/documenting some of the roadside oddities, morbid monuments, and unusual historic markers in and around New England- not only because I personally found them fascinating- but because it was a great way to get out of my apartment for some fresh air while […]

On The Road Again…

Hello from Swarthmore, Pennsylvania! I’m on day two of three of a mini-vacation/road trip I embarked on yesterday morning to meet up with longtime friends and see one of my favorite bands perform at the first music festival I’ve been able to attend since 2019 and long before the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Firefly […]

Local Loves: The Big E

If you were born and raised in New England, or at least lived here for a couple of years at some point- then you’re well aware that attending the Eastern States Exposition, or “The Big E” for short- is pretty much a mandatory Autumnal activity. Part agriculture exposition, part farmer’s market, part music festival/venue, and […]
