Phil and I spent Halloween weekend, visiting our old stomping grounds in Boston, a city that we had called home for almost 10 years. This was the city where we met and where we have cultivated and created so many great friendships and wonderful memories. It really was truly amazing to see everyone again after a year and … Continue reading Back in Boston
In New England, apple picking seems to be an annual local fall tradition. So, in the spirit of my favorite season, I wanted to go pick some apples. P, on the other hand, blatantly refused to accompany me. He complained that his grandfather would roll over in his grave if P ever paid to pick apples, a daily chore that he … Continue reading Fall Festivities: Apple Picking at Shelburne Farm

Now, I live for the red, orange, and yellow hues, the subtle chill in the air, and the pumpkin flavored everything. My birthday falls at … Continue reading Fall Foliage in Woodstock, Vermont

They would pack up their trusty old Saab, load their sail boat, and head to the Southern tip of Massachusetts for a couple of months. This past weekend, P and I, like everyone else, headed down to … Continue reading Sailing Provincetown
One of many New England cities, Providence is often forgotten. Both P and I had never visited Providence aside from passing through it on the way to New York City, and the city never struck us as worth visiting. But, a co-worker suggested we go to experience the “Waterfire spectacle” in Providence. This little city, which lacked … Continue reading Waterfire and Art in Providence, R.I.
