Vermont Getaway

Good Monday morning to you…and I only say that because we’re on Spring vacation this week, so I don’t have to work! 

Well, my husband and I were able to get away for a few days to our favorite place, northern Vermont.  It was wonderful…the house we were in was amazing and the view?  Well, the view was breathtaking; it allowed us to just gaze and ponder.  Talk about mellow.

This first photo is what we saw when we arrived…


…and this is what we saw when we awoke the next morning! 


Talk about a change, but it didn’t diminish our enjoyment one bit.  In fact, it sort of “allowed” us to relax even more, being so snug in our cocoon.  The quiet up there is so profound, it’s almost noisy…weird, I know.

Besides reading like crazy (my new favorite author is Claire Cook, check her out!), I spent time doing my little needlework lavender or balsam “pillows”.  I haven’t done them since last year, so it was good to sit and be a bit creative.   Not too tough to do with a view like this one.

Here we are on our last day, happy to have been able to reconnect, yet happy to be heading home to our family. It was a much needed breath of fresh air, both emotionally and physically. 


Here’s to a peaceful, relaxing, somewhat productive week to everyone. :)
