#TBT To A Vermont Road Trip

It's been a GLORIOUS day in New York City. 21 degrees, Spring like, birds chirping up a storm. As I opened my front door and felt the balmy air kiss my forehead this morning, promising Spring and Summer and warmth, I found myself reminiscing about our trip to Vermont last year. So, in honour of throw back Thursday, I thought I'd re-post the super nerdy video I made of our trip.

To those curious about our Vermont get-away, after first stopping at our wonderful friend's wedding at this beautiful place, we drove to the historic town of Woodstock. Our hotel was The Kedron Valley Inn, which I cannot recommend enough-comfy beds, an idyllic location and an on-site swimming pond (which you can see me making good use of in the video!). We also loved visiting Billings Farm for old-time wagon rides and some serious interiors inspo (black bottomed bathtubs- be still my heart). And we loved learning about maple syrup (and taste testing, natch) at Sugarbush Farm, which also has one of the best farm shops I've ever been to (we are now hopelessly addicted to these pickles, and have to bulk order them online). Other highlights include amazing interiors heaven Farmhouse Pottery, divine vintage shop Who Is Sylvia (I couldn't resist this) and rad downtown grocery store Woodstock Farmers Market. Guys, I fell so heavily in love with Vermont on this trip. It has, without doubt, the most beautiful countryside I've ever seen in the US, the people are amazing and the food is fresh, local and delicious without even needing to be advertised as so (just as an example, one night at The Kedron we were served raspberries for dessert that the waitress had picked from her garden that morning). In short, Vermont= the ideal mini break for a couple of strung-out New Yorkers looking to stretch out their limbs, sip on local IPA's and pet a seemingly never ending supply of adorable baby farm animals.

Wait, can I go back now?
