I grew up on Long Island. The beach was it for me. And NYC, where I lived for most of my twenties. After meeting and marrying my true love and starting a family, we moved here, to the Poconos. The place of my parents getaways. After a long adjustment, and much struggle, I have learned to appreciate a different kind of landscape. Mountains, and streams, lakes, the woods, are places I love as much as sandy shores. I adore photography, but can’t afford much in the way of equipment, and developing, so my phone is my camera. This blog is a little bit of this, and that, and photos, and words, about all of the beauty here in NE Pennsylvania, and everything locally wonderful. Thanks for stopping by!

All in a day.

Last week, I joined my daughter Charlotte’s 3rd grade class trip to Quiet Valley. I forgot just how squishy school buses are. And LOUD. We have been there so many times, in the Spring, to see all of the baby animals, but I have never been in any of the buildings, other than the barn. [...]

Something you might know, and something you probably don’t.

Jimmy’s Ice Cream. I have passed by it only about a bazillion times, but I have never thought to go in. Until…last night. I was craving a sweet, and after dropping one child at Pocono Youth Orchestra, and the other at Brownies, I saw my chance. There was a bit of a crowd, which surprised [...]

My morning coffee.

All I have been hearing about is Cafe Duet in the Courthouse Square, in Stroudsburg. So, after dropping Molly off at pre-school this morning, I found a parking spot right by this cute little place. And I mean little. Boy am I happy I did. The owner, Daniel, could not have been friendlier. The space [...]
