vermont

A friend that Zach is working with right now invited us along to Vermont for the weekend to visit family.  The drive was unbelievably beautiful; the family showed us the greatest hospitality. There were lovingly prepared meals, many, many games of hide and seek, lots of kids and dogs running around, walks through the woods, and fresh apples right from the tree.






The Scott family cabin.  I believe I overheard it said that it was originally built sometime in the 17th century.  Since then there has been a fire, refurbishing, and additions made.  It was a very cozy place to spend the weekend.








This is Greta's friend, Molly.

We missed the autumn foliage peak by a few days, but the leaves that fell created a golden carpet in the forest.





  We stopped in Brattleboro for lunch on the drive home.


   And a few miles further, a farmer's stand.

Can you smell those fruit pies??  

Here are a few of Zach's photos.

Sounds and looks absolutely amazing. Places like that are where one can completely recharge and forget about the busy everyday life.

I love your new glasses! Makes me want to buy new ones, too! :)

Oh how you make me miss Autumn. I grew up with it but we're a bit too sub-tropical here. It is such an underrated season. I think I just put Vermont on my places to go list.

those book back ornaments against the wall... how beautifully weathered.
imagine they were big as such to pull them out the wall, and crawl into them.
