I'm a SAHM of three fantastic kiddos. I spend my time overseeing chaos at home and volunteering at my kids' school. Along the way I pick up bits of knowledge that I share on my blog Jill of All Trades, Mistress of None. My heart belongs to the Pacific Northwest, but I've been in New England for the last 6+ years. Since I am far from home I'm determined to embrace it and experience all that New England has to offer.

Experiencing New England

Nubble Headlight, Cape Neddick, Maine

Friends, it turns out we’re leaving New England. My husband got a great job offer that will require us to relocate. We have to be in our new city in a month. A MONTH!  So much to do….including some last ditch New England experiences.

We have done and seen lots in our six and a half years in New England, so I’m not rushing to do everything. Phew. Here are some things we’ve already done:

Newport Mansions

Boston Freedom Trail

New Hampshire Seacoast

Boston Museum of Science

Keen Pumpkin Festival

Robert Frost Farm


Boston Opera House

Cape Cod


Mike’s Pastry

Plimoth Plantation

Canterbury Shaker Village


There are a few things I’m thinking we should still do:

Martha’s Vineyard


Minute Man Park

Ben and Jerry’s Tour

Red Sox game

 Climb Mt. Washington

Castle in the Clouds

Old Man of the Mountain

What am I missing? If you only had a month left in New England, or if you were visiting for a few weeks, what would you do? I’m pretty sure we don’t have enough time for all of that, so what would you choose?

Thank goodness it’s summer so we have some flexibility to get out and go!
