Happy Friday! We made it through the first full week of school. We went from heat wave to sweater weather and it’s very much feeling like fall here, and I love it. I realized this morning that it was 3 years ago to the day that we closed on our house in Vermont. That seems like a lifetime ago. And 5 years ago this week was the first time we came to Vermont and visited Woodstock. I never could have imagined we’d move to Vermont, have a daughter and send her to school here. Amazing where life can take you. Wishing you all a great weekend.
Here’s the best of the week. – Jess & Caylin
