After dinner last night, I sat down and devoured Rebecca Rule’s Live Free and Eat Pie, a light-hearted read about visiting and living in New Hampshire.  I adore Rebecca’s yankee humor and talent for weaving a terrific tale.  Her delightful stories reminded me of our first months in New Hampshire, back nine years ago.  Having such love for this area of New England, it was a dream come true to be moving up from Massachusetts.  It still is, but there were a few potholes and frost heaves along the way during that virgin year.  Here’s a brief synopsis…
