Thanks for visiting, a blog celebrating places and people in the Green Mountain State.

A little bit about me: I spent my childhood in Manchester, Vermont and returned to my home state with my husband in 2006 in search of a better life. We now live in Burlington with our daughter and visit different parts of the state as much as possible.

After college in the 1990s, I worked as a journalist in northern and central Vermont and later as communications director for the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing.  I’m passionate about telling stories and taking photographs of local people and interesting places. is all about exploring and enjoying the dynamic Green Mountain State.

Have a question about Vermont or a story idea? You can reach me at

I would love to hear from you!
