As a student in the Graduate School of Management's Professional Evening MBA program, I couldn't be more honored for the feature and continued support from an amazing community of leaders, innovators and all-in-all great people!

With the amount of snow Vermont had gotten to end 2016, we couldn't think of a better way to ring in the new year than a ski trip. On New Year's Day we headed up to the Stowe Mountain Lodge for two days of skiing and enjoying the many pleasures the resort had to offer.
From the minute we arrived, everything at Stowe Mountain Lodge was 5-star. One thing we really appreciated was how easy they made it to get skiing and settled in. Most skiers and boarders would agree that the only negative aspect to a day on the mountain is the time it takes to actually get on the mountain --parking the car, carrying your stuff to the lodge, getting a lift ticket, etc. Stowe Mountain Lodge has eliminated these bottlenecks and given consumers a way to save on lodging rates and lift tickets when booking through their "Snow Days" promotion ( https://www.destinationhotels.com/stowe-mountain-lodge/things-to-do/snow-days ).

Pinkies up ladies and gentlemen. No this isn't London,
this is High Tea in Boston.
Recently we made a reservation at
Hotel in Boston for their Afternoon High Tea experience. When we
walked into the lobby, our noses perked up and taste buds started dancing with
the cornucopia of tea aromas. The lounge setting of the restaurant
was both luxurious and modern. We were greeted by a hostess who took us to our
white tablecloth setting with beautiful Wedgwood china.
The waiter provided us a
large sampling of different black and green teas to choose
from, all of which have been imported from London. Once we made our selections,
the waiter came back over and served our tea selections in our own
individual Wedgwood teapots.
Our meal was similar to that of a
prix fixe menu, with the opportunity for add-ons upon request. As part of
the experience we were provided an array of delicious
finger sandwiches which were quite filling. However we made sure to save
room for dessert, which …
This past weekend we made a trip up the coast of Maine to Newcastle Inn, to enjoy a beautiful fall weekend. The Newcastle Bed & Breakfast was the perfect embodiment
of a Maine getaway. The Inn features 14 distinct guest rooms and is situated on the
Damariscotta River, providing picturesque scenery. Our room was charming and spacious and
the fresh cooked morning breakfast was the best way to start each day. The
staff was very welcoming and friendly and Julie, the Innkeeper and owner,
shared many great dining and activity recommendations.
After heeding Julie’s recommendations, we set out for a busy
Saturday. To get our blood flowing, we started with a hike at La Verna Preserve. Located about twenty minutes
from the Inn, the hike was about a three mile loop trail that featured beautiful woodlands, leading to Maine’s renowned, rocky coastline.
