Happy Friday. We got back late Wednesday after a few days on Silver Lake in Vermont. It was so nice to have a change of scenery for a couple days. We haven’t gone anywhere or done anything other than grocery shop and go to the beach for a day since Marin was born in February so I think we all benefited from some time away. Being up in Vermont for a few days just solidified how much we love it up there.
