Ski Weekend 2016

This weekend, me and several friends went on a mini getaway to North Conway, New Hampshire. We found a great place on airbnb that was able to accommodate all of us.

When we walked in, we were greeted on the counter by a bottle of wine, and a guest book. The guest book was filled with stories from past guests answering the following questions:

  • How was the weather?
  • What were your favorite adventures?
  • Did you get discover any great restaurants?
  • Anything else you would like to share about your stay?

We spent time reading the stories in the book, which contained everything from bears climbing through the kitchen window in August to going skiing for the first time ever at Cranmore. But as we read these recollections, it was missing one thing: faces.

And that’s where this post comes in! We wrote our stories in the book for future guests to enjoy and included a link to this post in order to share photos of our trip with these future guests.

If you are reading this and are also a guest of the Tonnings, comment below and tell us about your trip.

WordCamp Providence 2012 Session Video

In case you missed it, I was able to speak at WordCamp Providence last fall. My session was entitled Plugin Development – Stirred not Shaken.

This presentation makes sense of the pandemonium of plugin development by breaking it down into three stages: planning, implementation, and release, while providing resources and discussing best practices.

If you missed it, now is your chance to get a look. Video of my presentation is now up on

There are also a bunch of other WordCamp Providence 2012 session videos available.
