Have You Ever Seen The Lights?

It took a couple of days to get used to being back on the East Coast with the time zone difference and the colder, rainier weather- but I’m feeling a little less groggy and a lot more productive now that I’m getting back into the swing of my usual every day routine- but oh how […]

A Month to Remember: March 2021

Another day, and another month comes to a close. It’s hard to believe that March is over and we’re getting ready to dive into all things April within a few short hours- including Easter, more Spring-esque weather here in New England- and ongoing vaccination roll-out phases (depending on your state/region, of course. I’m still waiting […]

A Little Break…

It’s been quite a while (last August, actually!) since I’ve taken a few days off from both working and from blogging to simply just rest, relax and visit somewhere new and exciting or familiar and comforting- and I’m about due for a little vacation to a place that meets all of those criteria.

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

Halloween To-Go…

The days leading up to an extended trip (and for me, that means longer than a weekend) are always hectic. There’s the packing, sure- that undoubtedly takes the longest amount of time- but there’s also making sure my bank knows I’ll be heading out of town, wrapping up loose ends at work so that I […]

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 […]
