Voluntown, Connecticut

Hey there!

I just stumbled across your blog and it's SO lovely to see all the pictures of my home state!

I was born in Hartford Hospital, raised (until I was nearly 17) in West Hartford (attended Hall High) and then moved to Mystic, CT. I now live in lovely East Tennessee and, though I'm very happy here, I do also miss the beauty of CT.

Thanks so much for bringing a little visual joy to my day!

About Me

My photo
Hi, and welcome to my blog! In my working life I'm a cook, and in my personal life I'm married and have two daughters, plus a Chihuahua named Minnie. I am also a culinary school graduate with a degree in pastry arts. When I have a day off the first thing I think about is getting my camera and hitting the road. I've always loved road trips and I've been carrying a camera since I got a 110 Instamatic for my birthday when I was a kid. So, we get in the car and travel all over seeking out new back roads and new places to visit. At least twice a year we head up to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and take in some of the best scenery New England has to offer, and we get to New Hampshire, too. We also do some shorter trips to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and sometimes even New York state (although it's not in New England) and once in a blue moon, we get to Maine. When I'm not on the road I'm right here at home reading, writing, watching some classic television like Andy Griffith, or Minnie and I are out strolling in the cemeteries enjoying the art and remembering the people.
