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...

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....

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...

My Winter Panic

My Winter Panic

So, I had my first mini winter freak out this morning. I've been meaning to post about winter running, I am a hardcore runner meaning, I run many miles, in all seasons, and I knew when I moved to Vermont that I could not let the weather stop me. So I've been doing a...

Not SAD

Not SAD

I was not too worried about getting SAD (seasonal affective disorder) in the Vermont winters because honestly, I have reverse seasonal affective disorder lol, where I get super depressed during summer. All of my friends know that Easter is my least favorite holiday,...

Do It Nordic

Do It Nordic

So, I've decided that the only way to experience winter up here in Vermont is to fully embrace it. This is no news to New Englanders, unless you want to be absolutely miserable for 4 months of the year, you've got to get out in it and enjoy all the special winter...

Christmas in the Shires Part Two

Christmas in the Shires Part Two

My other Christmas post was sorely lacking in big red barns, and you can't have a Vermont blog without a red barn! All instagrammers know that if you see a big red barn you've got to stop for it, and luckily, there is no shortage of big red barns in Bennington, a lot...

Christmas in the Shires

Christmas in the Shires

Christmas is a magical time in Vermont! In New England, Christmas is as it should be, snowy streets, Christmas tree farms, hot cocoa and cider by the fire. Sadly, we are not actually in Vermont this Christmas (we'll be arriving Christmas day and my girlfriend is so...

Maybe in Connecticut I Would Care

Maybe in Connecticut I Would Care

I was getting ready to head out of the house today and I looked down and noticed a stain on my sweater. Ordinarily this would result in a mad Spray n' Wash frenzy followed by the hair dryer, but since I'm here in Vermont, I just shrugged and hoped I would remember to...

No No, After You

No No, After You

So before we even moved here, we were looking at homes in Burlington, and we had breakfast with our friends there, who are long-time Vermont residents (and originally from upstate New York and the midwest which are also virtually the same thing). And they were filling...

Colonial History

Colonial History

I need book recommendations! Whenever I move somewhere, I love to learn more about the history, and Bennington is full of amazing Colonial history. This is a short post, because I don't even really have any book recommendations, I'm actually looking for some, so if...

Please Send Me a Sign

So it was such a crazy story of how we found our perfect Vermont condo (yes I said condo ha ha my friends in Florida couldn't believe that Vermont even had condominiums but yes they do!). Three amazing things have happened in my life so far (I mean, a lot of amazing...
