Every now and then, it's good to get out of dodge and take in some new scenery. For Paul and I, traveling has always been something that helps us hit our reset buttons. We haven't got out of town as much since A was born - I think mainly because it takes a lot more effort than it used to. But whenever we do, I'm so, so grateful for the change of pace (even if it does mean a certain little someone snuggling in bed with us more often than we normally allow.)
Last weekend, we loaded up the car with our ski gear and headed up to the Mad River Valley to meet up with our friends Megan and Joshua. It's their favorite place in the world, and I can certainly see why. Beautiful mountains, perfect snow, mom-and-pop restaurants galore and not a chain store in sight. This is the place to go to relax. Needless to say, we had an amazing weekend, complete with a good amount of skiing for Paul and I, and some new adventures for A - REAL sledding and snowshoeing, too.
M+J, thank you for showing us your little slice of paradise! I think we may adopt it as well.
