The last few days, I was in Vermont with my family. Unlike last year, when we all seemed to be consolidating on the east coast, these last days of December seemed to mark the last time our family will be together in one spot. My sister and husband are off on a grand, four month long, trip to explore Asia, and my brothers are teetering towards moving out of RI. I'm happy for all of them, (and a little jealous of two in particular,) but it made our time in Vermont all the more special.
Plus it snowed. How lovely.
