In my last post I gave some tips on how to begin your home buying adventure so you can stay in NH. Basically, get educated, get pre-approved for a mortgage, and start making a list of your needs and wants that you would like to have in your home. The next step would be to […]

Toadstool Bookshop – A Bibliophile’s Dream Come True

What are the best ways to celebrate the fathers in our lives? Should we gift gadgets? Wrap up some tasty home-baked goodies? It turns out that a leisurely afternoon browsing around our local, independent bookstore was the perfect Father’s Day gift for my literature-loving husband.

The dictionary wasn’t very helpful, defining home as “the place where one lives permanently.” Wouldn’t that make all renters homeless by definition? I feel strongly that home isn’t […]

Team Matters – Leadership Grappone

You probably know that we are a car dealership, and you may or may not know that we do business quite differently than the typical dealership. Something you likely don’t know, however, is […]


Finding The Good In Goodbye

Is it really that time already?! I had a much easier time writing my introduction blog, than my final intern blog post. I have to say, this internship is the only thing holding me back from not wanting to graduate. Stay Work Play has been so rewarding to me in the way that it allowed […]
