  1. What a great give away!! I am already a follower and am glad I found ya!
    Wow what I like about New England!! Family would be the first. WE used to go there (Mass) almost every summer when I was a young in. Loved visiting my Nanie and Grampa and going to the beaches and taking drives up the north shore!! oh and the sea food.. :) I will end or we will have a novel here. Thanks for bringing some good memories my way!!

  2. Hello Erin, I would love to enter your give away! I have never been to New England ( I live in Australia) but I adore your blog and the beautiful photographs you present each week. I am also a follower! Okay, what I love about New England mostly are the gorgeous weatherboard cottages with the traditional furnishings and gardens. The simple way of life, beautiful restaurants and obviously an enchanting place to live, that one day I hope to visit. Your blog for me is like a tourist guide where to stay and eat! So thank you anyway Erin again for sharing your experiences. Kindest regards, Ann

  3. I have lived in New England most of my life. I have left and returned. When I was away I missed New England's annual eastern states exposition, The Big E! I love visiting the state buildings. I always enjoy ordering a Maine baked potato, a whipped maple cream cone from Vermont, and local berries from Mass. There is nothing like home :)

  4. What fun! I love New England because it has always been my home. The seasons are most beautiful and brilliant here, even the winter in its sheer austerity, is beauty almost beyond words. The light, the air, the ocean and the foods it yields, are all delights.
    Also, it seems that every trip to visit familiar places brings new views.
    Best of all is balm for my soul, and just the best place to return to after a trip. Coming home, driving over the bridge brings a flutter to my heart everytime.
    May you return very soon!

  5. I went to school in New England and I used to live and work in Boston. Now,when I head up to New England, I can feel my body relax as soon as I cross the NY border into CT and wend my way north.

    Just this morning I was trying to describe to a friend the feeling of contentment I feel when I inhale the scent of fresh pine in New Hampshire--there is nothing like it.

    I've been following your blog for a while now.

  6. I'm already a follower, but I'm gonna comment! :) What I love most about New England - well, that is hard, but fall has got to be a major highlight. There is nowhere prettier than here in the fall! History - another favorite about New England! Ahhhh, there's just so much I love!

  7. You know I am a follower! I just love your blog!

    It is sooo hard for me to choose just one thing I love about New England. I guess since I have lived here my whole life I love that it is home. I love the change of seasons, especially fall. I love the history, the culture. I especially love the natural beauty. There is just so much!!!

  8. I believe I am already a follower. What do I love about New England? How many characters do I have in this comment box?

    I love the four seasons, all the little ports on the Atlantic, lobster, clam chowder, the foliage, Boston, Newport, Stowe, antiquing in Connecticut, the Cape and the Islands, covered bridges in New Hampshire, the New England Patriots, the Boston Pops, the history of the area. I could go on and on, I love living here.

  9. I immediately opened my huge 50 page scrapbook filled to the edges with memorabilia and photos of my trip five years ago.
    There are too many things I love about New England- I'm sorry, but here goes...the historical buildings and homes,the lobster, the covered bridges, fall leaves, antique shops, Pickity Place and hearing the adorable accent. I love clam chowder pronounced as chowdah!

  10. Hi Erin, I have not heard of this magazine. Is a variety magazine? Anyhow have a great weekend.

  11. I'm a follower! I love the quaint towns of New England the most..., of course the sea and the islands too. I have heard of the Yankee Mag, but don't think I've ever had one in my hands, hmmmmmm. So...., thanks so much for the chance to win!!!! Great giveaway!!!

  12. Good morning Erin :)

    I am a follower and enjoy your blog, however it makes me miss New England even more! I love so many things about New England but would have to say that Autumn in New England is on the top of the list. The chill in the air, the beautiful Fall foliage, woodstove smoke, pumpkin stands and trips to the orchard for 'real' Apple Cider (not thick juice called cider). I also love the history :)

    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!


  13. Hi Erin! Great giveaway. I would love to be entered. And you know I'm a follower. Thank you so much for all that you do for your blog. It's a delight to visit always.

    Happy Weekend to you,
    Oh, if you can, stop by my blog, CluckleBees, tomorrow. I'll be celebrating Tasha Tudor Day and I would love to have you visit. Also, there will be links to other blogs celebrating Tasha that day, including the Rookery, hosted by Natalie who is the office manager at Tasha Tudor and Family, Inc. She's having a great giveaway there too.

  14. As you know I follow you! Love this blog. What I like best about New England is ME! (Joking ;) On a serious note, I love the fact that it is the best place to enjoy all four seasons. It is full of rich history and home of the Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie (what better reason is there? ;). I can be at the ocean and at the mountains in one day-love that! Norman Rockwell depicted it so well in his paintings. home

  17. I won't enter your contest since I'm in Canada, but my favourite thing about New England is definitely the history.

  18. What a neat giveaway! :)

    I'm already a follower, but I thought I'd leave my 2 cents anyways...

    What do I love about New England? The feeling of coming home, no matter where you are in New England. The people are friendly, warm-hearted and hard-working; nothing dampens their spirit or turns them against their beloved little corner of the US. I love the seasonal changes that come along with these people - the remarkable, vibrant seasons that each have their own character (just like the people) and keep us coming back for more. The coast, the inns, the foliage, the history, the lore & legend... all of it is amazing. There is nowhere else I could (or would ever want to!) live permanently. Once a New Englander, always a New Englander. :)

  19. I am already a dedicated follower;) What do I love about New England? Where do I start? The Fall clours of course that's why I will be over there in a few weeks. The history, the houses, the harbour's, the lighthouses, the covered bridges. The food, the craft's, the people. Just everything really, I would love to live there permanently.
