  • October love

    “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Anne of Green Gables In Florida, that quote always resonated with me as that is often one of our “sweet spots” of weather. Perfect temperatures, low humidity, and a skip in the step that comes with knowing that the respite from the blistering […]

  • Head in the clouds

    I found a hiking friend who is also a traveler and for three weeks in a row our mutual day off was rainy and our hike was rained out. This past week we decided to go for it; we both had rain gear and decided to test it out. As it happened, it was cloudy […]

  • Facing fears

    Last night we planned to catch sunset on a local trail, however, I could not remember if I had turned off the oven before we left. We had to turn back around and the delay left us approximately ZERO minutes of to spare. (The stove was in fact OFF) The hike itself is not long, […]

  • Falling into fall

    The temps are starting to cool off here in New Hampshire, 40’s in the mornings and 70’s during the day. Give or take a few degrees either way and we are enjoying it. Jeans, hoodies and sweatpants without breaking a sweat are glorious! Adventuring continues and we both have a few new hikes planned for […]

  • Finding our groove

    Entering our third week of New Hampshire life and today is the first day that feels like a “normal” day. It is a day off for me and after my morning walk I knocked out some errands (grocery shop, gas, bank, etc.) and found myself with nothing to do. It is a rainy day so […]

  • We’ve completed week one in New England and continue to be awe-struck. I hope it doesn’t end any time soon, because it is such fun to find so many cool things waiting around each corner. I do love the honeymoon phase of new things, don’t you?? This entire adventure started last summer as a strong […]

  • Rain showers

    The other night after work we went down to check out a local swimming hole a couple miles away and take a walk. The intent was to walk about 30 minutes, check out the area and grab a bite to eat because we had not fully grocery shopped yet for our condo and we needed […]
