It’s no secret that Vermont is one of our favorite states. Our first trip there was an inn-to-inn bike trip for our honeymoon. We’ve gone back nearly every year since 1994, either for a summer trip or in the winter to ski.
It broke my heart when I saw on TV some of the devastation Irene left in her wake last weekend. It’s so sad to lose lives and old buildings that can never be replaced.
I’ve had a small collection of Vermont prints and a plate that I’ve been meaning to hang in a group all summer. School started and I forgot all about it until today. A rainy Labor Day Monday was the perfect opportunity to hang this grouping.
Now when I walk into our family room, I’ll be reminded of all of the good times that we’ve had in Vermont over the years.
I won the graphic print in the middle by CaPow from Holly’s blog, Homebody, earlier this year.
The two smaller prints are cards that I purchased at a B&B where we stayed on one of our bike trips. We rode our bikes through this bridge and stopped at either this very store or one very similar to it for drinks. I hope the covered bridge survived Irene!
Do you have a special destination state? Vermont will always be ours!
