There is something about the ocean in New England.

With its freezing water and quiet beauty, I feel like the ocean in New England is a good stand-in for New England itself- my part of the country is not too flashy, and all the cold weather makes us seem a little unfriendly to the rest of the world.

Once you spend a little time here, though, you see just how gorgeous, how magical, the northeastern states can be.

I love it. A year later, I'm so glad I moved back.

  6. The best roast beef sandwich you will ever have (seriously it'll change your life) is in this greasy little diner right off of the T stop near the beach... I think we should have a field trip there.

  9. mmm I have to substitute the N. shore of lake superior...it's a little like Maine once you take out the fijords, lobsters, and some of the population. Not the tourists, though. lots of those.

  10. I never think New Englanders are unfriendly. Maybe it's because I started traveling there alone at 15 so I didn't get a chance too. I travel there for work a lot and am so thankful I do. It opens the door for tons of blogger meet ups!

  13. Beautifully put, and I totally agree. Some of us were born New Englanders and some of us weren't but should have been. I moved here seven years ago and love it with my whole heart. It is definitely home.

Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.
