Welcome to New England and Connecticut, Land of Steady Habits
You Know You’re From New England When:
- You’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time
- You’ve been to Cape Cod
- You consider 65 degree ocean water “warm”
- You have switched from “heat” to “A/C” in the same day and back again
- There are 25 Dunkin’ Donuts within 20 minutes of your house
- You have ever missed school due to “Mud”
- You get mad when people assume New York is part of New England
- Sox-Yankees games are a life and death matter
It’s all true …
I’d like to thank Thoughts from an Evil Overload for hosting this blog hop. When I first came across Elizabeth’s blog I was over-joyed to realize that there were so many diverse bloggers in New England!
I have a special GIVEAWAY here just for Visiting My Blog today, so be sure to read to the end!
Today I’ll be introducing you to other New England bloggers – we’re such friendly folk! Make sure to visit the Linky!
Over the years our family has spent a tremendous amount of time on the Cape, and it’s probably one of my most favorite places to visit. We even considered for awhile buying a second home in the Eastham – Wellfleet area.
Louise, the author of Cape Cod Rambling Rose, considers herself a “washashore,” but her husband’s family has been on the Cape since 1623! When she isn’t busy tending to her 4 young school-age children, Louise shares her daily routine on the Cape through beautiful photographic images. She also enjoys volunteering, beach walks and offering magnificent beach~inspired jewelry, vintage embellished journals and albums, as well as romantic homegoods for her Etsy shop, Cape Cod Cupboard. When you visit her, please be sure to let her know that Cindi sent you from the New England Bloggers Blog Hop!
