Snow. I want lots and lots.

We can’t talk about New Hampshire, without talking about winter. And that means snow. I will be the first to tell you, that last winter was kind of a nice break. I wasn’t in the mood to constantly dig out from beneath a foot of snow, but this year it’s a different story. I just […]


If the Apocalypse doesn’t cometh

Christmas is almost here- meaning it’ll be gone before we know it, unfortunately. But then comes New Year’s. PARTAY.

Everyday Hero……

As we gear up for Ugly Sweater Parties, Yankee Swaps, Secret Santa Activities, Cookie Swaps, Decorating the Tree, making Gingerbread houses and from what I’ve seen on Facebook, some crazy thing called Elf on the Shelf (That definitely wasn’t around in the 90’s, but I digress…) it is the season of being thankful and appreciative of those […]
