Built almost 200 years ago stands the historical Rowell’s Inn located in the village of Simonsville, Vermont. Rowell’s Inn has served as a stagecoach stop between the towns of Londonderry, Weston, and Chester. It included a post office, a general store, and most recently an inn which closed in 2012. The present state of the inn is very concerning to most who drive by ... read more

New Year, New Goals

January 3rd, 2018|Family|

Every year we as people set out to better ourselves and we set the bar high, this year I am setting it lower.  I have such high expectations for myself and others that I feel in year 2018 lower expectations means less stress.  Saying NO more, simplifying.  I realized a few days after Christmas that 75% of my time is spent picking up stuff.  And ... read more

Family Matters

March 21st, 2017|Family|

As life travels along and the kids get older you start to think where has the time gone? How did they get this big; in what seems like a blink of an eye.  When they were little and they would have sleepless nights I would think it will only last a little bit and then they will sleep though the night - is this where ... read more

My best friend moved to California and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.  My brother and sister-in-law brought my beautiful niece into this world. I took a leap of faith and left my job to pursue my dreams.  My kiddos have never stopped surprising me ... read more
