In Provincetown, it is all about being the best you

Somewhere between skipping down a quiet street after a rain storm on the way to back to my bed and breakfast after a night of karaoke around two in the morning paired with a carefree beach attitude, something suddenly hit me. I felt alive. In fact, I didn’t just feel alive. I felt the most…

Taste buds explode on a dairy farm

It has been quite the start of the summer here in New England! With temperatures rising into the nineties, there is no doubt that we have been in the midst of a heat wave. The funny part? It’s not even the official start of summer yet! September 21st, for those of you keeping tabs at…

A day spent at the falls, is a day spent with your soul.

A day at the falls puts the mind at ease. When you need to simply collect your thoughts, look no further than your nearest waterfall. Honest! The rush of nature offers a sense of calm that is truly the best medicine in the world. I took a visit to one of my favorite waterfalls recently…

Yoga, and the pursuit of happiness.

It is said that in order to find peace in life, you must find yourself first. The ability to find yourself in todays world is both challenging and daunting. Challenging, because we can’t find the time to even find ourselves as we have become so consumed with our jobs and technology and daunting because, well,…

The Year of You: Stop Trying to Live Up to Others Expectations

Have you seen the latest marketing campaigns lately? Odds are, you have seen every single marketing campaign that is on the planet. Wear this. Buy that. You’ll look great in that jacket, until next week when it’s out of style! Oh, marketing. Why are we, as humans, so drawn to keeping up with appearances of others,…

Brignole Vineyard Brings a Taste of Napa to Connecticut.

We all know by now that I really love vineyards. My Italian roots run deep, and as an Italian, I believe a good glass of wine is good for the soul. Don’t take my word for it, however, read some of the studies on red wine and how it may help with the longevity of our…

The Year of You: On Friendships and Your Past.

When we focus on our past, does it bring us forward into our future? This is sometimes a pondering question. We should absolutely never forget our past or where we came from, but should we rely on it to bring us through the uncertain obstacles of our future simply because we have attached a stigma…

The Year of You.

What a kickoff to the new year it has been. My New Years eve was spent at my second home base of Killington Resort Vermont, a widely popular destination for many of us in the northeast who enjoy the adrenaline of some downhill action at the beast of a ski resort that it is, spreading…

2016 Year in Review.

How was your 2016? The year itself has been a struggle for many. Apparently we had an election? Actually, I can confirm we did just by scrolling through my social media feeds. Bring back Facebook! It looks like CNN ate it. Despite the election, the year 2016 for me was one with many successes. Kicking…

Christmas Day Skiing at Jiminy Peak.

  Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. The lights. The music. The seasonal drinks. It’s really a great start to a season that is otherwise known as one of the most depressing in the northeast. Luckily, many years ago I have found a way to beat the seasonal depression that affects so many of…

How to Survive a Polar Vortex.

Get ready. Remember the year that it was brutally cold in Connecticut? Okay, well it’s always cold in Connecticut, but I’m talking more so than usual. I’m talking about when the weather of the North Pole makes its way to our state and people begin to stock up on heated blankets and snuggies rather than…

Christmas in New York City.

What’s better than being in the city during the holidays? I can’t think of much. The twinkle of the lights. The store windows decked to the nines in holiday cheer. The magic of Rockefeller Center lighting up the city with the best Christmas tree in the world, while people discover the warmth of love while…
