Kicking Off The Holiday Season In The White Mountains

“When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.” ~ Tecumseh Recaps My trip home for Thanksgiving flew by. It felt like I was just barely escaping what ….

Thanksgiving 2018 in the White Mountains

“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” ~ W. Clement Stone Back With Family Despite Thanksgiving being a family holiday, since I was a teenager, I can count on one hand the times I havespent it with my immediate family. It always seemed I was traveling. Or the insanity to travel on the busiest travel days ….

What DO I Wear?!?! Cold Weather Comforts

“The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can’t but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching.” Enya Highs and Lows Here in the North East I feel like their is no ….

Happy Thanksgiving!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie Gratitude  There is so much in life to be grateful for, though it ….

The Perfect Gift This Season

“Carry Only What You Need.” ~ Janie Cooke and Caroline Nix  O-Venture A couple months ago, I featured O-Venture rings on a Friday Favorites post. With the holidays approaching and the season of gift giving upon us, I thought it was only fitting to give them a big non-sponsored shout out. Seriously, they came up with such a genius idea, that ….

I write this from the snowy White Mountains of New Hampshire. I flew ….

Wander Eats: The Butcher’s Daughter

“Only fools argue whether to eat meat or not. They don’t understand truth, nor do they meditate on it. Who can define what is meat and what is plant? Who knows where the sin lies, being a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian?” ~ Guru Nanak Healthy Eats New York could be considered the foodie capital of the world. (sorry Paris) No ….

What DO I Wear?!?! The Perfect Fall Jacket

“I love getting amazing jackets, because you can wear your pajamas underneath and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, fabulous jacket,’ and I’m like, ‘You should see what’s underneath!’ ” ~ Mary-Kate Olsen Jacket Hoarder If ever I was going to be called a hoarder (which let’s face it, isn’t likely), it would be with my jackets. I admit I have WAY to ….

Wanderlusting: Apple Picking

“Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.” ~ Robert Browning Hudson Valley As I mentioned in my previous post, I was lucky to do ALL the farm things this fall. I was especially blessed, because I got to go apple picking TWICE! On the verge of gushing, (which I am) I am also ….

Wanderlusting: That Farm Life

“The simple hearth of the small farm is the true center of our universe.” ~ Masanobu Fukuoka All The Farms This Fall I had the pleasure of going to not one, not two, but THREE farms! I got to go apple picking twice, and last weekend, I went pumpkin picking. I definitely lived my best fall life this year doing ….
