Annie Graves is a travel, home, and feature writer with deep roots in New England, and a love of the well-packed travel bag.
As Home & Garden editor, and a regular contributor to Yankee magazine, a New England icon with a readership of close to two million, I’m always looking for the poetry, even as I embrace our rugged landscape and weathered shingles.
In the ongoing Yankee feature, “Could You Live Here,” I go behind the scenes at destinations like Fryeburg, Maine; Mystic, Connecticut; and Exeter, New Hampshire. See Travel, From Maine to RI, and Travel Blogs.
As Yankee’s Home & Garden editor, I’ve deepened my love of New England architecture—and increased my admiration of how we keep one step ahead of home repairs. See House & Garden
And I’ve been fortunate to step inside the working studios of some of our talented artisans, from blacksmiths to potters to painters. See Open Studio
