I just got back from a quick trip to Vermont. We had so much fun celebrating with friends watching one of our friends get married. Vermont is just a quick ride from NYC and is truly a world AWAY as far as the look and feel.

We were buying maple syrup, indulging in homemade apple cider donuts, and sipping local craft beer within 5 minutes of parking our car. It’s a trip worth making!
