(I have bolded my favorite reads of the year)
Yesterday was one of the most exciting days ever. After 5 years A. asked me to marry him. It was personal and sweet in our nice little VT apartment. Bennington will forever be a special place!(I said yes of course!)
Thank you Bennington for the beautiful scenery. This is how I always pictured New England to be.
Book Protector Barnabus.
Current read. I wish more than anything I was at home under a cozy blanket, in front of the fireplace, with a mug of mint tea reading. I love my cozy little VT cabin and the person and pet in it. The weekend cannot come soon enough!
Sunday night at its finest…I spend it fighting with my cat.
The best way to spend Thanksgiving!
Today was a cowboy boot wearing bluegrass listening kind of day. I miss WV but at least VT seems to appreciate these things as well.
Dance at Bennington. It is also awesome to note this is happening in what I like to call my backyard.
