February in Film

Today was gorgeous. I drove around with my windows down and listened to this song and this song and this song on repeat and grew increasingly more eager for summer to arrive. I also picked up my disposable camera photos from February at Walgreens. I didn’t get around to buying a new set for this month, so I haven’t been taking any lately, but I wanted to share these with you, and give you a bit of an update.

Winter in New England
Winter in New England II. After I took these, a man pulled up beside me and said, “Don’t you just feel so blessed to live here?”
Winter in New England III (This one’s my favorite. I love living near such historic cemeteries.)
Target parking lot in a snowstorm. I am actually astounded that this one came out.
Balloons & onions at Price Chopper.
Kinda weird, kinda cool. Cereal faces in Price Chopper.
Pretty corner of the antique store.
A not-so-rare sighting: two coffees for Brooke.
Excuse the profanity; this is the goodbye cake I made for Brooke who has gone away until May.
Picnic on the lake.
An awfully teary goodbye selfie.
Out of order bathroom in Vermont.

I have been thinking about my blog as a platform a lot lately.

I adore this blog. It’s a safe space for me. It’s nearly six years old, so I feel like I’ve kind of grown up on here, which is both a good and a bad thing. I never want to get rid of it entirely, that’s for sure. But I think it’s just kind of like a “home base” in terms of where I share my writing and my content.

I started a newsletter at the beginning of March on Substack. I’ve been trying to write every day on there, cause writing’s what I want to do, and I had been putting it on the back burner for a while. It was really nice to start fresh, and start somewhere where I didn’t have so much history. I’m going to share the link on or around my birthday, April 7th, and by then there will be a good amount of content for you to peruse at your leisure.

I’m not going to set anything in stone; we all know I don’t like to stick to plans when it comes to this website. But I’d like my newsletter to be the place where I publish my writing and my blog to be where I share photos/more broad topics regarding my personal life.

I wanted to share this with you so you (maybe?) have something to look forward to if you’re at all interested in reading stuff I’ve written. None of it is extremely professional, and many of the posts read like my typical blog post, but I do put a lot more work and time and heart into them, and for that reason I’m very excited to share it with the world.

I have some life updates I’ll likely be sharing in the next few weeks, but for now, I just wanted to pop in and say “hey” and “happy spring” and “aren’t you so glad the snow’s done (or so we think)?!” I hope everyone’s doing well, staying safe, and is enjoying life as much as you can these days.
