Rent A Vermont Farmhouse For This View

The last weekend of 2012 we did our first overnight trip with Frances to Vermont. We were invited to stay at a beautiful farmhouse my sister rented in Waterbury, Vermont. The trip was just over 3 hours from Massachusetts and a safe distance to practice our new parenting skills. As we drove north through New Hampshire the landscape turned from muddy browns to white blankets of snow. Frances slept majority of the way (see a pic here); making just one pit stop where we successfully maneuvered our first diaper changing in the car.

On Saturday, we bundled baby up in full winter gear and brought her out for her first winter snowstorm. I got a kick out of letting the fresh snowflakes fall on her face even though she squirmed and whined a little. We made our first baby snow angel (she was asleep) and took a hike around the farm meeting chickens in an adorable red hen house and sat on a pony! This little girl is spoiled for only being 2-months old!

My sister found the house on Homeaway.com (for rental info): an online database of vacation rentals. She and her family spent the week skiing at nearby Stowe Mountain. The farmhouse has a huge kitchen that’s great for cooking in the evenings, a pool table, hot tub (my nieces loved), an outdoor fireplace and five bedrooms situated on 20 acres. The shots above and below are the views! The mountains clouded in snow; the air still and crisp.

New Years Goals

Snowy Beach

It’s back to grind. I overslept and I’m already feeling behind on my new years goals. Did you set any goals? Last night I was restless and couldn’t sleep. At 1 am, life became clear and I come up with most amazing projects and ideas for 2010. Unfortunely, I woke up this morning and forgot them. So below my abbreviated list of goals in 2010 in no particular order. Happy productive 2010!

1. Don’t go to bed with dishes in the sink.
2. Complete at least one floor in the house.
3. Learn to edit video.
4. Go to Paris.
5. Start interviewing more artists, crafts people, and cool people in New England for my blog. Because I’m tired of just talking about myself.
