Port City

One of the best things about New England is that everything is centralized. My husband and I live in Manchester New Hampshire. This definitely has challenges, but also allows us opportunities. One of these is the fact that we are only an 1 1/2 hours from Portland Maine. Friday we took full advantage, and took […]

Finding Happy

Yesterday was just a regular Monday. My job had sent me out to Stratham for training. It is only 10 minutes from the New Hampshire Seacoast, so I took a ride. I have always been adventurous at heart, but I haven’t always followed through.   My life used to be driven by other peoples expectations. […]

Waves at Wallis

Today was a rough Monday. I felt tired, and stretched out, and couldn’t really settle. My mood was volatile, and I did only did the least expected of me. My daily life has been boring as of late. Right now, what is getting me through is the thoughts of tomorrow. The trips we are planning […]

Bolton Valley

I had never heard of Bolton Valley. I was sick Friday with the stomach flu, when my husband approached me. He quietly asked me if I had any interest in skiing on Sunday. I mumbled a yes before rolling over to sleep. Saturday I was feeling better and had doubts about the trip. It was […]

Winter Blues

Lately it has been so cold it has been a challenge to get outside.  In New Hampshire the end of December met us with a deep freeze. Many day, the mercury didn’t have the strength to creep above 10 degrees, which made getting outside difficult. The cold stings your face, and creeps under your skin, […]

Struggles and Plans

I had a grand plan. I was so proud of myself during November, because I finished my novel early. The plan was to take the holidays off, and then afterward jump into editing. January first came around and I jumped in. Yet about a week everything stalled. Editing is incredible difficult, yet this seemed impossible. […]

Seasons Changing

So here we are, almost halfway through the week already. I never used to believe the adults when they said as you got older time went by fast. They were right. All around us the leaves are changing, the weather is getting colder. I still can’t believe the Summer is gone. We are getting ready […]

The Little Things On North Pack.

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the Monadnock Region, and we finally got out on a hike. We chose to hike North Pack Monadnock, a mountain that is located close to our home. We left shortly before noon taking Teds Trail to Carolyn Trail. I have been up the mountain numerous times, but this route […]

A New York Minute

Coming from New England, New York was the second state along our long journey. New York went on forever. As we came into the state, we passed signs telling us of the different laws and such. A sign that proclaimed “I love New York” passed us quickly. Behind it one stated “Move over for emergency […]
