    I really love planning Casey’s birthday. For one birthday while we were living in San Jose, we drove up to San Francisco and enjoyed a day of eating mushroom risotto at a fancy French restaurant. Foraging and identifying mushrooms was our favorite pastime at that point. For this year’s birthday, I wanted to treat him…

  • Mile End, Montreal

    Mile End, Montreal

    We discovered a funky new neighborhood in Montreal. Mile End is where many Orthodox Jews live, so there are many bagel shops. There’s also a small little Lululemon store here! My cousin Molly and her husband visit Lululemon in every city they visit. We also stopped into what I thought would be an Asian snack…

    Casino de Montréal

    Casey’s parents were in town so we knew we had to hit the casino. Despite all our excitement, the casino did not have craps. We were a little bit disappointed. If you’ve read any of my posts about Las Vegas, you can learn more about how Casey and I are craps diehards. We live for…

    Montreal Botanical Garden & Museum of Fine Arts

    Our first foray up to Montreal was with two of our friends from California. Surprise – the border crossing was extremely easy and it took only 1.5 hours to make it to downtown. We walked around the Montreal Museum of Art and then the Botanical Gardens. Because it was our first time there, we chose…

    One Saturday, I drove down to Western Massachusetts for a zine fair and had the time of my life. Making zines have brought me to places I have never been and has been the best ice-breaker in new environments. I’ve taken part of zine fests in New Haven, Northampton, and Watertown, and a book festival…

    Fourth time’s the charm. I came for the first time in 2018 with my friend Samantha. I got my bearings – the Isabella Gartner Stewart Museum, Fanuil Hall, Boston Market, Little Italy. My second trip was with my sisters in 2021, where it was more of an eating trip. We ate a lot of lobster…

    Laconia, New Hampshire

    I had never spent much time in New Hampshire, other than an hour stroll through Lebanon. I drove to Dover for a swim meet at the height of summer. I really underestimated how much time it would take. It was a three and a half hour car ride and when I arrived, I was in…

    The race of the summer is the Kingdom Swim. I had heard about this swim my very first week living in Vermont, and while I was too late to register for it in 2021 since I arrived in the summer, I registered in snowy March for the race in July 2022. I spent all year…

    The summer of 2022 brought guests from all over to stay at our cozy ranch home. We finally got the guest bed set up and our tiling finished on the first floor. Our first guest came in June – the first of many. My friend Victoria and her husband came to visit first, kicking off…

  • Vermont Womenpreneurs Summit

    Vermont Womenpreneurs Summit

    Strangely enough, during the pandemic I got to speak and give more presentations than ever before. Zoom made it possible for me to get involved in activism, the indie publishing scene, entrepreneurship, and more. Prior to Covid, I had only given a few talks. I had given an art talk at an exhibit opening and…
