Autumn in western Mass is magical…I love seeing the area come alive with seasonal colors and festive Fall touches. One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon during this time of year is to pay a visit to farms/farmers markets for some Fall goodies, and to simply take in the beauty of the season. … More Autumn at Blossoming Acres | Southwick, MA
Hidden along the backroads between Historic Deerfield, MA and the Montague State Forest, lies this unique gem: The Bookmill. “Books You Don’t Need, In a Place You Can’t Find” is their slogan, and it holds true.

I’ve lived in the northeast just shy of my entire life, but there are many things I have yet to do and see. Growing up, my summer days/nights usually consisted of watching Sox games with my Dad or driving around town aimlessly with friends; windows down and music blaring. As much as I cherished those times, there were so … More New England Summer Bucket List
As I sit here this afternoon with my cup of coffee, I’ve come across photos from past trips I took to Berkshire County, Massachusetts. It’s given me the inspiration to write this post which is one I’ve wanted to write for a very long time.
Just came across some old photos that I took on my Flickr account and thought I would share! All photos taken using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi and a Canon Powershot A1000. Enjoy!
Hello and happy October everyone! Ah, October…my favorite month (besides December of course ;P) I love all the festivities and halloween-themed things October has to bring. That being said, my boyfriend and I just returned to Florida from visiting my family in Massachusetts. While we were there we set aside an entire day to explore Salem, … More Salem, Massachusetts: Our Favorite Places
