Hello September! With the crisp fall air right around the corner, I can't help but reminisce about our fall 2009 trip to Vermont. I apologize for the poor photo quality, as we had not yet purchased our Nikon "grown-up camera", as we call it. I am reminded of how much New England tugs at my heart-strings, watching the unfortunate Irene aftermath…my thoughts are with those who are struggling (still) in Vermont especially. Our day trip from Manchester to Quechee was a memorable one, and ended with the most amazing meal at Simon Pearce. Hopefully you know of the company, but if not, here is an intro. We fell in love with the setting, as the restaurant floats over the river and a waterfall…it was very idyllic. You can watch the artisans blow glass, potters throw, and shop the boutique. It was an amazing day, and that photo of us remains one of our favorites. We hope to return soon!
