wandering in woodstock

welcome to woodstock! i had been dying to come back to vermont after visiting it for the first time almost three years ago! my last trip was during the summer, and although it was absolutely stunning, i was itching to come back in the winter. snow covered mountains is one of my favorite sights...because sandy beaches are so 2005. andrea and i decided to make the nearly 5-hour trek up to woodstock to get in some snow time (outside of nyc). unfortunately, on the drive up, it was pouring rain and continued to rain throughout the afternoon and evening. the michigander in me knew this only meant one thing come morning: ice...and a lot of it. thankfully it was cold enough that the snow didn't leave us completely but it was all covered with a sheet of ice. weather challenges aside, that didn't stop up from exploring the town!

we had quite the blizzard a few weeks ago on the east coast, which put a little damper on my plans to visit the cherry blossoms in washington, dc. the blossoms were covered in a layer of ice causing a significant delay the peak days. but my train was booked and my friends were awaiting my arrival so there was no way i was about to reschedule! i went to plan b and simply visited some of my favorite locations in dc working with the incredibly talented laura metzler!
