Packing for Men: Fall in New England

It’s no secret that no one actually likes to pack. Least of all my husband! I usually pack for him wherever we go, and he fills in with his toiletries and electronics. It works out pretty well because he doesn’t have to pack, and I get to blog about it! And hopefully this will be helpful for you, too.

Staying at the Trapp Family Lodge

My husband recently made a life-long dream of mine come true. We stayed at the Trapp Family Lodge during peak foliage season! You know how sometimes your dreams seem out of reach, or that you simply don’t deserve them, even if that’s not true? I guess I always figured they were booked up years in advance, and there was no hope of getting a room during the fall. But we got in! We got to stay at the lodge on the property where the Von Trapp Family from The Sound of Music settled after escaping the Nazis. It was wonderful!
