When I started my berkshiregirl blog and Facebook page, I was doing it for my own entertainment. I have a huge love and fascination for the Berkshires and I’m currently in the process of writing a book based on the Berkshires. So, I am always learning new tidbits and historical facts, and of course, I like to share that knowledge, which meant that I was always writing about the Berkshires on my personal Facebook page, until my friends, not so subtly, asked me to start a separate page to put my Berkshire information on. Hey, I can take a hint! 🙂 So, that’s how it all began a couple of years ago, and to this day, I find that it is still evolving.
I am known to be shy, so this page was a way to share with everyone, but still keep ‘me’ in the background. I really just love to share all of the local things, places, events, etc. with everyone else that I come across. I enjoy all of the modern day fun that makes the Berkshires the Berkshires, but I also really love the historical side of these hills. So, you will just as easily find me exploring an estate (or ‘ Berkshire Cottage’s, as they were known as in former years) or searching out a stone wall in the middle of some overgrown woodland, as you are to find me shopping on Railroad Street, in Great Barrington, with my kids or taking in an art show, in Pittsfield.
I hope that my Facebook posts and these pages bring enjoyment to whoever is looking at them, and hope that you will continue to follow as this ‘berkshiregirl’ makes her way through life in the Berkshires!
