Family. Vermont. Snow. Life.

We spent this past weekend up in Vermont, visiting Adam's family, and friends of ours. Sadly I was so busy having a good time I didn't have a chance to take very many pictures. We made it there ahead of the storm, and then came home right before more snow hit.

It was so nice to see everyone (we were last there at Christmastime), and relax for a few days.
We went over and hung out with these great guys, Saturday night. Eating, talking, and then eating and talking some more.

I have found that one of the best ways to get through these long winter days is to get. out. Anywhere. Go for a weekend, a day, a few hours. Sometimes we go to Vermont, and other times to the pet store to buy a couple new fish, or just out for dinner. Either way, just getting out of the house {and with all the snow and cold that, in it's self can be an incredible feat} works wonders in fighting off cabin fever.

Anyway, now we have piles and piles of snow outside, but I can see the sun peeping through the clouds, so at least it's a sunny day.

The wee one has been stirring around, and kicking like crazy. She already has her own schedule -when she wakes up, falls asleep, etc. I'm so excited and can't wait to meet our little Rosie Posie-I can't believe only three more months now til she's here!

I'm listening to the classical station, and drinking my coffee. But the coffee is almost finished, and soon I leave for work (Adam already headed off to work early this morning). I still have to head to the Post Office, put potatoes, onions, carrots and beef in the crock-pot for stew {for dinner}, make the bed, and sweep. Oh, and water my plants. Can't forget my green friends :) 

Visiting with relatives {one of the few pictures I took}. 

To be totally honest this is what we did every day. Sat, in our p.j.s, drinking coffee--all. morning. long. 

Back home, an early morning breakfast. 

Outside, our snowy town.

My morning cup of tea (in a coffee cup!).

Happy plants in the window.

Butterfly wings, fairy tale kings
And each new day undoubtedly brings
Still more beautiful things"

P.S. A great big thank-you to everyone for all their lovely, sweet comments, congratulations {on baby}, etc. Even though I don't have time to respond, I love hearing from each one of you, and read each and every one. 


  1. Oh yes, getting out helps alot! I used to live in both Minnesota and idaho which always have tons of snow. I remember being shut in for a blizzard.... now I am in texas no snow but still the need to get out and clear the cobwebs and just feel better! Pajamas and coffee all day? Sounds heavenly to this mom of 7. Enjoy thoes days!:) thanks for sharing.

  2. Love the newsy life posts...that is a good idea about getting out in winter. Hard for me at times to get myself up and the children ready, but worth it!!! I should do it more. I love your Rosie Mug...
