Halfway Pond Trail

When we want to get away but can’t really go far, Jeff and I usually head to Cape Cod or nearby Plymouth, MA. We woke up on a sunny and gorgeous weekend morning, decided to ditch our household chores and escape for a hike with the dog. I was looking for a new trail to explore […] Read more…

My Five Favorite Food Blogs

Without boring you too much, I’ll say that I have complicated feelings about food. I read way too much on the internet which leads me to believe I should be eating vegan for health, sustainability and moral reasons. But in reality I am a pescatarian (I eat fish occasionally – but not without some guilt). I […] Read more…

Tower Hill Botanic Garden Tour

We’d been to Tower Hill Botanic Garden before, to escape the winter blues. But I was so excited to drive up there on a gorgeous fall weekend and finally see the outdoor gardens. Tower Hill Botanic Garden is the home of the Worcester County Horticultural Society, a nonprofit organization with the goal of advancing the science and improving the […] Read more…

Our Spring Vacation in DC

Because hotels in the city were so expensive at that time (we went right around Cherry Blossom Season) we stayed a bit outside of DC in Alexandria, VA. I loved having a second place to experience, especially one with a different type […] Read more…

Our Trip to Stowe, VT

Though it was very un-Bristolian of us, we decided to leave town for the Fourth of July weekend this year. Our friends Jen and Andy invited us to camp with them at Smugglers Notch State Park in Stowe and I was looking forward to a relaxing getaway and spending time in beautiful Stowe, Vermont. In […] Read more…

Wicked Tulips Flower Farm

A few weeks before Mothers Day this year, I started hearing a little bit of buzz about a new flower farm named Wicked Tulips Flower Farm. I had forgotten all about it when I came across Christine Chitnis’ post, and promptly booked my own tickets. Wicked Tulips Flower Farm was founded just last fall (2015) […] Read more…

Scenes from New Orleans

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans to represent my organization at a trade show. Most of the week I was, of course, working – but I did manage to fit in a fair bit of sight seeing the day and a half I was free. I arrived late at night […] Read more…

Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, Florida

Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is a wild and wonderful place; a quirky old Florida theme park built around a spring of fresh water bubbling from subterranean caverns at a consistent 74 degrees F. I had been dying to go there since I first found out about it over ten years ago. The star attractions are the live […] Read more…
