If you want to find me in all of my glory, totally blissed out… you’ll find me somewhere among the great outdoors. Nature wakes me up and reminds me that there is a lot more going on besides facebook, instagram and wedding blogs. When I need a break from my “computer life”, which is more often than not, and need some inspiration, I take a quiet walk through the woods.

Autumn/fall, whatever you call it, is my favorite time of the year. It’s a time when the air starts to crisp up, the world becomes a vibrant palette of oranges, yellows and deep reds, wonderful flavors are flooding the shelves at the market, I can light my Mulled Cider candle in the season it was meant to be lit {I usually keep one on hand year round!}, and I can wear boots, comfy cozy sweaters and my favoriteā€¦. winter hats! It really is the most wonderful time of the year for me.

I am a VERY lucky girl to have such a great husband who is supportive of my wants and dreams. When I told him I need a vacation in the mountains {because the mtns are my “spot”}, he not only listened, but he delivered in a major way. He brought me up to a remote town in Vermont for a long weekend.This vacation couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I’ve been working like a clydesdale, with a few days off here and there, never 2 in a row, and often times I’m still answering emails on my days off. I can’t complain, business is great mostly because of the people who support this small business, people like you! But I get burned out just like the rest of you. I’m also a big believer in the necessity of vacations.

I was so grateful to be able to stop, rest, and think… enjoy some computer and iphone detox… play in mud, hike mountains and stare at colorful leaves. I needed to live my life for a few days without thinking about anything else… but life!
