Snow More

It's happening... a winter with no snow!  I cannot even believe it is mid-January already and we have hardly had any of the white stuff.  I figured living in Vermont one thing you would at least be assured of would be a nice cold and snowy winter, sure, I get that it...

That Winter Light Though

That Winter Light Though

What amazing sunrises and sunsets we've had this year!  It has been bitter cold, and definitely not nearly enough snow, but the light this winter has been absolutely amazing! It's so funny, it's either a snowy winter and not that cold, or a bitter winter but there's...

Go Snow!

Go Snow!

We had a few big snows in November and early December but none lately so I'm so glad I got out in it while the gettin' was good!  It's frustrating to be a nordic skier as opposed to downhill, most of the nordic ski mountains don't make snow so we're reliant on Mother...

Do It Nordic

Do It Nordic

This crazy pandemic winter was the best winter of my life! I think I was the only one, but it was all thanks to nordic skiing. I meant to start skiing last year, but just never got around to it, so it wasn't the pandemic that made me want to ski, cross-country skis...

Nothing but Blue Skies…

Nothing but Blue Skies…

Sure the snow and bitter cold temps can be a challenge in winter, but I think the number one complaint of Vermonters would be the lack of sunshine. You can definitely turn up the heat, and snow can be gorgeous, especially when it has first fallen, but if there's no...

A Guide to Winter Running 2021

A Guide to Winter Running 2021

You might recall I did a post on winter running last year (you can read the full post here) and yet another winter is going by with me running every day and while most of my tips are the same, I have even more gear recs than last year that you guys might find helpful....

Beauty at your Doorstep

Beauty at your Doorstep

One real silver lining to this pandemic (and believe me, there aren't many lol!) is that I have spent more time in and around my town. I feel like sometimes you ignore what's right in front of you, but with less travel (even within the state of Vermont, I've been to...

Christmas in Vermont

Christmas in Vermont

It's the most wonderful time of the year! And though it will look a little different this year, Vermonters are decking their halls and trimming their trees! We're having a special event in our state called #vtlightstheway where our Governor has asked Vermonters to...

Vermont Winter Running Tips

Vermont Winter Running Tips

This winter running guide is not necessarily specific to Vermont, but over the past winter, I have run nearly every day, and I've become somewhat of an expert on winter running. I was really anxious after moving to Vermont as to how it would affect my running, I...

So Wonderful in Wilmington

So Wonderful in Wilmington

Another wonderful little town in Southwest Vermont is Wilmington. Route 9 is the main route between Bennington and Brattleboro, which is Southern Vermont's southeastern-most town, and one way you can get over to Boston (and a much prettier choice than the Mass Pike)....

Lovely Ludlow

Lovely Ludlow

I recently learned about Ludlow from a Yankee Magazine article about some of the best towns in Vermont, and after visiting I'd have to heartily agree! We had an errand to run in Weston last weekend so I figured we'd pop over to Ludlow for lunch afterwards. It's about...

Wonderful Weston

Wonderful Weston

Weston is truly one of the most picturesque towns in Vermont, a charming tourist destination that's home to the Vermont Country Store and that boasts an old-fashioned grist mill and adorable town green with a gazebo. It's also home to the Weston Playhouse, in case you...

Jamaica Me Crazy!

Jamaica Me Crazy!

Right down the road from Weston you'll find Jamaica, Vermont, quite possibly one of the prettiest towns in southern Vermont. As you crest the hill down into Jamaica, you will see one of the most spectacular vistas I've experienced here, I actually risked getting mowed...

Vermont Country Store

Vermont Country Store

One of Vermont's top tourist attractions can be found in Weston. If you happen to be the kind of person who does group tours, you will 150% come to Weston so don't worry about that, ha ha, because it's the home of the Vermont Country Store. You might have shopped at...

Highlights of the Berkshires

Highlights of the Berkshires

So in our quest to get out every weekend, last weekend I decided that we should head down to the southern Berkshires. We're in Williamstown every day of our lives it seems, but it had been years since I had been down to Lenox and Stockbridge. Literally years, when I...
