This lifestyle and travel blog is an offshoot of a much larger tree— Lone Oak Publishing Co., Inc., and our family-owned Chronicle Newspaper in Glens Falls, NY, which celebrated its 40th year of publication on September 3, 2020. Please check out The Chronicle’s Web site for information on our newspaper and publishing company.

At Castle Cottage, home of Beatrix Potter, Near Sawrey, Cumbria, England

I’ve worn a number of different hats since joining the paper’s staff in 1995 — features writer and editor, creator and editor of Adirondack Family Magazine, columnist, book publisher, legal counsel, and now, chief operating officer and assistant publisher.

Prior to joining the Chronicle family, I had a career as an environmental and historic preservation attorney, and before that, as an archaeologist. I am the mother of two young men who are in their mid-to-upper twenties; the human mother of two Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier girls; and the wife of Chronicle founder, editor and publisher, Mark Frost.

Please feel free to email me through the contact portal on this blog with comments, ideas and inspiration. I look forward to hearing from you!
