International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot

It’s been a while since I last posted. I haven’t been cooking, or writing much for that matter. Rather, I’m running on free food at work and frozen pizza. The blanket of darkness that seeps into our windows at work at the mere hour of 4 each afternoon demotivates any sort of energy I’d have to cook, but rather drag myself to yoga, make scrambled … Continue reading International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot

Iceland Day 6: Northern Lights Tour and departure

It’s been about 6 months since I ventured off to my dream home of Iceland. After visiting, it’s been torturous deciding where to go next. Iceland is the one place I’ve always wanted to go, it was a no-brainer, so what’s next? How do I choose? I never did finish my post on our last day in Iceland, however. Heather and I had just come … Continue reading Iceland Day 6: Northern Lights Tour and departure

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Homemade Salsa Verde

It’s been 5 months since I started at HBP, so I was honored to be asked to fly out to California for the Academy of Management Conference to maintain our Harvard Business Review booth. It was an exciting 5 days of meeting with professors and students who read our publications, submitted book proposals; and on our side, learning topics that they’d like to see us … Continue reading Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Homemade Salsa Verde

Days 4&5: Secret Lagoon, Cocoa Puffs and Glaciers 

“Always be yourself. Unless you can be a viking, then always be a viking.” The feeling of coming home after a trip consitutes some type of closure. It’s quite strange to be in a country one morning different than the country you end up in that night. You don’t want to leave and yet you must – because it’s not your daily life, it’s not … Continue reading Days 4&5: Secret Lagoon, Cocoa Puffs and Glaciers 

Iceland Day 3: Geysers, Hot Dogs and Exploring a Cave

Our third day in Iceland was more than we could have ever have asked for. We woke up with the goal of getting waffles at Mokka Kaffi, a little cafe in Reykjavik I found through Instagram months before our trip. They serve thick and fluffy waffles with whipped cream and strawberry jam, and the strongest caffe lattes I tried in the city. Rielly, having been … Continue reading Iceland Day 3: Geysers, Hot Dogs and Exploring a Cave

Iceland Days 1&2: Blue Lagoon, Waterfalls and Black Sand Beach

Over 15,000 kilometers covered. 576 photos. $133 spent on gas. 5 waterfalls. A lot of Einstock beer, Icelandic hot dogs, stinky socks and laughs-till-we-cried. It is so difficult to capture Iceland in just one blog post. Every day was so different, every time we turned our heads the landscape changed. I’m going to break up my posts on the trip so it’s not too much … Continue reading Iceland Days 1&2: Blue Lagoon, Waterfalls and Black Sand Beach

Leaving New Hampshire: A Few of my Favorite Things

Actor Hugh Laurie once said that waiting until you are ready is a terrible thing. “I have this feeling now that actually no one is every ready to do anything,” he said. “There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” In the rush of … Continue reading Leaving New Hampshire: A Few of my Favorite Things

Boston: The Butcher Shop

Last Friday, my work attended the New England Newspaper and Press Association’s Annual Better Newspaper Contest at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston. What a gorgeous venue; mainly the luxuriously simple bathroom  with all white walls and a gray-black marble counter, and the exquisitely designed ballroom with overhead soft blue colored balconies and gold accents. Shay and I drove into the city with sheer excitement, … Continue reading Boston: The Butcher Shop

Planning for Iceland

Glacier climbing. Ice caves. Northern Lights. Waterfalls. Horseback Riding, snorkeling, hot water spring hunts, hiking, snowmobiling over glaciers, geysers bursting into the sky, and exploring deep into lava caves. The potential adventure in Iceland is endless! As mentioned in a previous post, I’ll be there in just over a month! My heart has been set on a select few spots for a while, including: The Seljalandsfoss … Continue reading Planning for Iceland
