A Thank You Note to the Granite State

Dear Granite Stater, I hope you’re doing well. I’m writing to thank you for the granite that now runs through my veins.  Wait, what? Perhaps I should clarify.  See, reader, 12 years ago, when I was 17 years-old — just barely a senior in high school —  I was a passenger in what was a […]


Get to Know NH’s Young Professionals Networks

According to Wikipedia, the term young professional refers to “young people in their 20s and 30s who are employed in a profession or white-collar occupation.” However, with New Hampshire’s aging demographic, YPNs are more focused on building lasting relationships regardless of industry and not how old individuals are. These groups are a great resource for […]


Mud Season Roads

I keep my skis in the truck because the season is not yet over.  But if I want to be totally honest with myself, I know I won’t head out again this winter. Sure, if it were 55 degrees and sunny to the point where I risk a goggle tan, heck yeah I would be out […]


It’s Walking Season! How Walkable is Your Community?

One of my favorite things about living in downtown Durham is the proximity to almost everything I need. There is a pharmacy, grocery store, post office, hair salon, and a variety of restaurants and small shops. I can even walk to things I don’t need, but am grateful for nonetheless, like a candy store and […]

Tucked behind the packed aisles of beans, sauces, snacks, and candies in the New African Asian Market lies one of Concord’s hidden gems. The grocery store itself is packed with goodies, from grocery staples like beans and rice, to delicious sesame cookies that remind me of a trip I took to China in college. But […]


The Countdown

Shhh. If you listen closely you can almost hear it. A subtle ticking noise. In fact, if you turn down the volume on Wheel of Fortune, you can hear a ticking noise too. This tick-tock combo is time – counting down the weeks until Cinco de Mayo. Which begs the question: are you ready for […]


Spring Garden Dreams

Despite having just endured a “wintry mix” in the middle of April, we all know that spring is on its way. One of my favorite things to do as the weather warms is to work in my gardens, and this past weekend I took a trip to Black Forest Nursery in Boscawen to escape from […]

It’s Not Goodbye, But See You Later!

It is true what people say, time flies when you are having fun! It is crazy to think that I started this internship 5 months ago, and now it is over. It is bittersweet leaving because I have learned so much in such a short time and had the opportunity to work with some amazing people!  […]

Nicole Martin

9-5: “I Love Working Here Because I Love Living Here.”

While her life and career have taken many turns, Nicole Martin is certainly glad that living and working in New Hampshire are both part of her journey. “I fell in love with the hardworking, gritty, yet fun-loving people of New Hampshire,” said Nicole, 35, who is originally from Maine. “My uncle convinced me to move […]
