the dirty 30

sorry I've been MIA
being out of the office for a week can really put you behind

so where was I?

On our vacation
I also turned 30

which I thought I would hate
but everyone has told me that their 30s were the best years of their lives.
And why wouldn't it be?
Isn't 30 the "adult" age where you all the sudden have savings and family and a successful career?

I can't wait for all of that!

Our morning started off with a blizzard
winds brought the temp to -24

so after considerable time cozying up to the fire
and some beers
we decided to journey out and hiked up a mountain in our snow shows.
what. a. workout.
(sorry no pictures)

Then we went sledding- which I hadn't done since I was about 5 years old.
I don't understand why more adults don't sled
It is so much fun!

For dinner we got lost and ended up at 

the place was adorable

They use all local foods and feature one local farmer a week.
I was in luck because the featured food when we were there was 
maple syrup!

I had the cheese plate to start
(because you cannot go to VT without eating cheese!)

Followed by acorn squash with maple syrup

and I'm really sad I didn't take a picture of the dessert that had porridge, maple syrup, ice cream and candied pecans.
It was quite possibly the best thing I have ever tasted.

Abbie bought me a beautiful necklace

It was a great birthday overall.



and adult. ha.

(abbie got me this jacket to replace the one that I had stolen on our last vacation)


  1. Looks like such a fun trip and a great way to celebrate your 30th! Nick laughed so hard during the "Up in the Air" monologue because it was completely me - "I thought I'd be driving a Grand Cherokee by now" -

    Ah, well...
