hello, 2009.

2009, I’m a fan of yours so far. With things to look forward to in the future, visits from family, a beautiful trip to Vermont, and the fact that Jacques was still alive when we got home (hallelujah!), I don’t have anything to complain about. Especially when we had such perfect weather in Vermont, cold and crisp, and beautiful scenery yielding photos like this one.

and this one.


how Vermont-y.

other things I’ve loved this year: falling asleep to the sounds of a crackling fire in the fireplace, learning/playing/winning/beating John in poker, luxurious days full of rambling around little (old! all incorporated before 1780!) Vermont towns, staying in the sweetest b&b ever, getting to sleep in sometimes, drinking hot cocoa, eating cheese for the first time in (nearly!) a year, navigating our way throughout the NorthEast United states with nothing more than a print-out from Google Maps (and actually making it to our destination!), not being online for five straight days, crocheting, watching “A Perfect Murder” in bed with John at a motel just off the interstate in Erie, PA, as we tried to wait out a blizzard, not getting in one of the dozens of accidents we saw on our trip, and having so many ideas of things I want to do, we want to do.

and taking pictures of beautiful places in New England.

    Oooo, you had to detour through Erie? My apologies. Ew.

    Yes, yes we did. We didn’t see much of it, as obscured by falling + blowing snow as it was. But actually, it was such a relief to be off the road that we didn’t care where we were, as long as it wasn’t the car. :)

    Those pictures are gorgeous. I especially love the first one – how I wish we had winters like that here. Maybe minus the whole blizzard thing though.
