springin’ around

happy (official) spring folks.

i’ve been quite busy out here in burlington – mostly just enjoying the weather. and loving every minute of it-obviously. it’s been SO nice to have the sun out more. it makes even the colder days feel a bit more bearable.

here is what i’ve been doing to keep busy recently….

(and yes, i know that i’ve promised a lot of different posts recently – i swear – they’re coming)


 

my friend, jess, and i spent a day at the spa in stowe. a day FULL of relaxation. we woke up early, ate a quick breakfast, and hit the road. after filling up the gas tank and grabbing coffee we were en route. we got there with enough time to unwind and relax a bit before our first service. we both had a massage and it was heavenly. there’s just something about a full body massage that cannot be rivaled by anything else. after the massage, we had a bit of time before our next treatment so we hung out in the sauna and the steam room. facials were up next and we finished the day relaxing with our books by the pool. after we were spa’d out, we grabbed a boozy lunch and made our way back to burlington.

it was a GREAT way to spend a random tuesday, we’re hoping to make a quarterly date.

we’ve been trying to get out and about as much as possible during the sunlight hours recently. lots of sunsets down at the lake, or watching from the williams fire escape at UVM. this shot was from one of the boat launches in burlington.

another sunny day we decided to bring a lunch and some booze out to charlotte. my (other) friend, jess, has a camp out there and although it wasn’t technically open for the season, we still lounged on the rocks for hours. the space is just unreal.

last weekend, my sister and i went to san francisco to spend time with our other two sisters. my niece is expecting a younger brother late june and her parents have both decided on a weekend with their friends/siblings before baby number 2 arrives.

this was meagan’s weekend. i don’t even really know what to say about the city except that it’s one of my all time favorite places to be in the entire world. we flew in late friday night and headed to right outside the castro where my sister, jen lives.

saturday was spent brunching at foreign cinema [you cannot miss the homemade pop tarts], walking around the mission and through the haight, and drinking the afternoon away on our friend, wyatt’s roof.

sunday was spent at the banya archimedes spa. (it’s an experience – that’s for sure).

monday we spent the morning FaceTiming with our dad, and drinking coffee. jen went to work, while meagan, tiffany and i headed to union square for a bit of shopping.

unfortunately, fun always has to come to an end so we flew out monday night on a red eye and landed in burlington on tuesday afternoon. the trip went by far too quickly, but it was another one for the books.
