On Moving To Hartford

When you move in your twenties, people ask, "Did you meet a guy?"

When you move in your thirties, people ask, "Did you get a job?"

When you say you moved to New London, people look a little confused but slightly positive, as if they are thinking of vaguely nautical things they once encountered on a field trip.

When you say you moved to Putnam, people nod approvingly; they're thinking of Putnam County, New York.

When you say you moved to Hartford, people literally do a double take like a bad movie actor.

"No, it's nice!" you say, enumerating Hartford's charms as they look at you with concern.

But really, it is nice.


  1. Really nice pics showing how beautiful Hartford can be. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love this. I share the same experience and sentiment.
