Well, we’re back in Athens and getting settled in. I’m mentally preparing myself to start back up to work on Monday (yuck – where has this summer gone??!), and Jake’s hopped back on the job search train. Our trip was amazing – I’d never been to Vermont, so it was really fun to explore. Vermont is so different – hardly any big box stores (we only saw one wal-mart), lots of local restaurants as opposed to chain and fast food, and in almost every restaurant we ate, we found fresh, local ingredients. A bumper sticker we saw summed it up quite nicely: “Vermont – life’s a little more simple here”.
And the scenery….well, let’s just say I could easily move there next week. It’s just beautiful.
We enjoyed a week of relaxing, hiking and exploring the state. We took a day trip down to see the Green Mountain Spinnery – it was so cool!
We stopped by a wildflower farm – it was just amazing! So quiet, peaceful and beautiful.
We took a gondela ride up to the top of the mountain so that we could hike down and enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding us – it was truly breathtaking.
And we took a day trip to Burlington, which is now my favorite town.

As far as my knitting is going, I have a fun and exciting project that’s going to be revealed in the next few days, so make sure to check back! I have lots of other things I’m working on that aren’t ready to be talked about here yet, so there’s plenty more to come!
