We’re Baaaaaack!!!


So how long has it been friends? One, oh geez, TWO YEARS?!

How ya been? Wonder where we went?

I guess you could say life happened for us; just a few changes since we last spoke. We moved back to Vermont. Harrison took over a responsible restaurant with national acclaim. I worked for a young inspiring magazine helping their business grow. We then followed our hearts back to our hometown. And oh yeah, we had a kid. He’s pretty awesome. We’re pretty proud.

A lot has happened but we can honestly say that we are finally hitting a joyous stride as we lay down roots with our boy here in the place we always thought we needed to leave.

And with that, we are taking a closer look at our new-again city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina over at our new site, TowniesWS.com 

Winston Salem, NC - TowniesWS.com

 

There, we will be showcasing the doers, makers and innovators that are helping to make our “little-city-that-could” shine. Of course there will also be seasonal eats from Harrison, photo essays from me, as well as some creative inspiration for all of you out there.

We’d love to have you follow along with us in this next chapter. Big plans in store. Here’s to the ride!

The Warren Store in Warren VT {Date-Trippin}

I’m a sucker for covered bridges and general stores.  The nostalgia of it all.  This week for a date-trip he took me to both with a stop by The Warren Store.

Stepping inside is like stepping back in time, albeit with a more sophisticated flair.  Rows and rows of mass-produced boxes and cans are replaced by charming locally made treats and carefully curated favorites.

Standard stark beverage coolers are replaced with beautiful antique ice box refrigerators full of interesting brews and flavors. And the deli and baked goods section is just a dream.  We can’t seem to leave the place without a handful of impulsively bought randomness each time we visit.

This week’s randomness: a bag of mixed maple nuts, a homemade whoopie pie, and a highly touted bottle of Lawson’s Finest Liquid (a hard to snag local jewel and hands down my favorite beer sampled in Vermont so far).

Swing by their online store for your own randomness like a Keep Vermont Weird tee or a bag of penny candy. Or come pay us a visit, and we’ll be happy to drive back over the bridge and show you the way.

Until we date-trip again,
