You can make a living making art.

You can make a living making art. My husband is an artist. When I tell people that I get all sorts of questions that typically go something like this….. “Oh. What kind of art does he do?” “He’s a potter, um, he makes pottery. You know, mugs, bowls and functional work as well as some larger more […]

A Night Among the Stars We are all dying to know what Jennifer Lawrence will be wearing on the red carpet as she makes her way into the Dolby Theater on Sunday night. But what I really want to know is, what will you be wearing? Have your own night on the red carpet with Red […]

Blogging: Good for your health

I remember each summer growing up as a kid when my mom, who is a teacher, always made me keep a journal and read what felt like a million books. For some reason I always preferred to write rather than read. I even enjoyed writing so much that it came to a point that I asked my […]

This one’s for the dogs

This may be short & lame, but you’ll get great referrals nonetheless. I’m gonna start by piggybacking off of Erin’s post where she introduces Meetup. After reading her blog I signed up and discovered some great groups. One in particular is comprised of a handful of experienced hikers/NH aficionados/dog lovers. They organize at least two […]

Kids at Work

In the past week I’ve seen a couple of photos circulating on Facebook of female politicians with their small children at work. The first one is of an Italian representative at the European Union, Licia Ronzulli, voting on bills on the floor with her newborn in a sling. The second is a mock swearing in […]

Hate Mail When I think of the White Mountains, I often envision slopes dotted with colorful skiers, snow dappled villages nestled in between towering mountains, and mugs of hot chocolate taken by the fire in the lodge. What I do not imagine is theater. But theater the White Mountains has. On stage at the Jean’s […]

Everyone has a love

So today is Valentine’s Day, happy day of love to everyone out there. By now since most of you know I am getting married this year, you would expect that my post will revolve around my best friend and true love Lindsay, about how we will share a romantic evening at a restaurant tonight, because we […]

Get your Stitch Fix.

We’ve all been there. You go into your closet, or open your drawers to get ready for work, a casual Saturday, a night out with friends or a special occasion and it hits you like a ton of bricks. I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR! Technically, you do but that’s beside the point. You don’t want […]

Attention New Hampshire, Calling all inner artists!

I always tell my students that we all have strengths and weaknesses and everyone in society is important-it is like one big puzzle and everyone plays an important role. Take farm horses, for example. Some of them can pull up to 4,000 pounds by themselves but  when one horse works together with another horse they can […]

Economical Playing in the Granite State

It’s nearing that time of year where I am starting to feel antsy to do things. The holidays have passed, so there is little excuse to eat whatever I want and lay around the apartment, but it’s not quite spring where I’m motivated to go out hiking or any of the other outdoors-y things that […]
