as i’m mentally preparing for another year i’ve been scouring over pictures on my computer. new ones, old ones, good, and most certainly bad [admittedly overly self critical over here]. here are a few of my favorite memories from this past year:
marielle and loic’s dinner party was definitely one for the books. and the whole night was extra special because of the paper crowns.
my co-worker and great friend, jess, and i spent the day at the spa in stowe. massages and facials followed by some steam room and a dip in the pool. it was exactly what the doctor ordered – especially because it was mid week!
every time we go visit our sisters in california i think to myself, “that was one of the best trips out there, it’ll definitely be hard to beat.” and yet, every single time we go back, it get’s a little bit better. our trip this spring was amazing. meagan, was able to fully relax and unwind with baby #1 at home – perfect getaway before baby #2.
memorial day weekend was one of the most spontaneous and memory filled weekends of the year. spending a weekend at my friend, jess’, camp in charlotte is a luxury and it might be one of my all time favorite places in vermont. it’s so easy to unwind and not have a care in the world when you’re drinking wine on the porch watching the sunset.
our trip to wisconsin this summer was anything but boring. we kept it exciting by visiting the anchor [seen on diners, drive-ins, and dives], running a half marathon and doing some water skiing all within 72 hours.
one of the highlights of the summer was when my mom came to visit us in burlington. we hiked, we ate, we sat in the sun. we survived a monsoon and went to a show at shelburne museum all in one evening. we, also, wore hats.
we spent many a day on the lake. one of the most memorable afternoons was this one. hard to beat a day on the boat. great friends, tunes, and a beer or two will turn anyone’s day right around.
it will most certainly be hard to beat this day right here – day one of brenna’s bachelorette party at the palms resort in vegas. i think that’s probably all i should say about it…
ian and i hiked sterling pond this fall. we randomly saw friends halfway up, went for a dip at the top and took the long way home through stowe. it may have been the long way because of all our detours… doc ponds, cider mill, cabot.
can hardly wait for what 2017 brings.
