Why, hello Vermont. It’s good to see you again.
It’s a lot different view than last year…

Where’s all the snow? I guess that’s the trade off for all the warm temps up here. Still gorgeous though.
Can I keep that kitchen forever? I’m pretty sure that + the nook is the same size as my whole house back in Florida. Le sigh.
We left NYC pretty late last night. I grabbed a chopped salad from Pax before we left and ate it on the road.
I believe there was mixed greens, tomatoes, olives, and chicken in there. It was kinda cool the way they pile everything in the bowl then put it through the chopper machine, it concentrated all the flavors and really made everything pop. I need to find a place that does that back home!
We arrived safe and sound in Vermont just before midnight and popped open the first bottle of wine per our annual ski-vacation tradition.
It’s pretty amazing how quickly three bottles of red wine go between 8 or so people.
This morning I rose on the early side to sneak in a little work before the rest of the crew started moving. Ashley was kind enough to make a big pots of oats for everyone. I had a good size bowl with apple pieces, peanut butter,and granola.
The perfect ski-fuel.
It may not be terribly cold and there may not be a ton of snow on the mountain, but it’s a GORGEOUS cloudless day out there. I can not wait to hit the ski slopes (with extra sunscreen, of course ).
I may be a Florida girl, but I can ski the mountains with the best of ‘em. Here goes nothin’.

What’s your favorite mountain to ski?
I grew up going to Breckenridge with my family annually, but I think Jackson Hole remains my favorite mountain of all time. It’s not a mountain for beginners (my twin brother actually broke his arm going down one slope and he’s a better skier than I am), but it’s an awesome challenge for skiers looking for an adventure.
