Best Holiday Gift Ideas: Christmas 2016

This will start off sounding like yet another political post but it's really a love letter. Hang in there with me, okay? The election results are in and Americans are utterly divided. We've been here before. In Civil War and regarding Vietnam, for example. This great experiment called Democracy has led us down some winding, even gridlocked, roads. But these roads, in all their wild wreckless abandon, lead somewhere. Somewhere beautiful. It just takes time, faith in democracy and, yes, anger or tears. The Forefathers never said it woud be easy.

Street Scenes

Thought I’d share a couple of recent popular photos from the Instagram today. Two weeks ago, summer (finally) arrived here in the Northeast of America. So where do I flee for relief from 90 degree temperatures? Nothing beats a day spent leisurely snaking along Vermont’s scenic Connecticut River. I love to bring a box of […]

A quick update from Instagram! Been running here and there on spring/summer road trips and will be sure to share the fun asap! For now, here’s a shot of the lupine, native to New Hampshire, blooming here on the mini-farm. Enjoy!

Lupine Morning

Since the first colonizers of New France stepped foot on Québec's shores, the Québécois have been gathering, before Lent, to eat, drink and party through the hardships of winter. This custom endured in the form of Carnaval, an 1894 reinvention of this long-standing tradition. Today, Québec's Winter Carnival is the world's largest winter carnival and third on the list of top carnivals, just after Rio and New Orleans.

Ogunquit Maine: Beautiful Place by the Sea

A rosy-cheeked toddler, with curling strawberry blond hair, is propped in a coffee-colored recliner. His chubby arm clutches an orange striped stuffed lion. I widen my eyes, grin big and say, "Cheese!". He flashes tiny perfect white teeth, squints his lushly lashed green eyes and squeals, "TEEEEZE!"
