Hello from Vermont. We decided to come up for a few days to check on the house, do some yard work and get a little change of scenery. On the drive up we realized we’ve never been up here in the spring. I can attest to the fact that it’s similar to Rhode Island in that you can wake up to 35 degrees and sit outside in the afternoon in 70 degrees. Those few hours of warmth are really nice and it’s so pretty up here. It’s fun to see Marin explore in a whole new way too. When we left last time she wasn’t walking yet, now she’s all over the place (always thankful for a one level house with a walking toddler). I have my weekly IG break today and tomorrow but Sunday I will be sharing some frequently requested photos and videos of my favorite things around Woodstock and I have a special Vermont themed giveaway planned too. Happy weekend.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…
