Winter graced the air and frosted the woods beyond my windows with glistening hope for the new year. Christmas followed with love and warmth from family and friends. I feel rejuvenated and grateful.
I am grateful for my family, and for those close to me. I am grateful for our health and happiness. And I am grateful for the years I have spent with all of you, my NH.Life community–my online family!
For the better part of a decade, you have welcomed my musings, my tips, and my event searches into your homes (and phones!). We have chatted on Facebook and Twitter about all things New Hampshire, from sledding hills, to hiking trails, to your favorite mac & cheese mix-ins and maple syrup recipes! You have adventured with me to Renaissance Fairs, and I have explored your recommendations for NH summer adventures and fall foliage drives. You helped this site grow with your feedback and suggestions. Our popular NH Kids page was created for a reader request!
I have always appreciated the NH.Life community’s tone and kindness, and I have truly loved being a part of this community. So, it is with deep sadness that I type this final NH.Life feature. My position with NH.Life will end as we turn into the new year.
I want to thank you all for so many years of Granite State discussion and fun! I wish you all the best, and I hope you will continue exploring our site and our amazing state!
This could never be goodbye, because New Hampshire will always be my home. Instead, I will toast to you, my lovely audience, “Cheers! To your health, your happiness, and your awesome NH Life!”
As a celebration of past and future, I cannot help but host one, final, farewell giveaway! I have gotten my hands on three more sets of Pats Peak lift ticket vouchers! Each voucher is valid for one lift ticket through the end of the 2017 season.
For your chance to win, tell me what makes you happy. It’s that simple, folks. I would like to descend from my NH.Life post amidst your smiles as you take a moment to think about what brings you the most joy.
Email entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will draw three random winners on Friday, December 30th.
Good luck, and best wishes.
