New year's resolutions are not for me. Instead, I have goals, dreams, and ambitions. Some of which I renew on January 1st, some I adapt to changing circumstances, and then there are some that I let go of.I choose a theme for each new year based on one of my core goals. Some years I set the theme ...
The Savage Mill historic district includes the former cotton mill which was transformed into a vibrant shopping and entertainment district and is also home to many small (artsy) businesses as well as the housing that was built for its workers. Besides bungalows and colonials, you'll find several ...

I learned a few to-dos and not-to-dos from perusing the site and following other bloggers. I learned much more by just doing it. December's challenge, the Activ...
I have one of the prettiest drives to the office. Along the winding road of Oak Hill is a collection of custom homes on sprawling homesites: from historic farmhouse to timeless center-hall colonials, from not-your-average rambler to 1940s bungalows, from brick Cape Cod to expansive Manor homes, f...
When I woke up this Monday morning, the first message I saw was that of another 5 star review on Google.
