    Thank you so much for sharing my post! I love this post today because I feel like I traveled to all sorts of warm places. It is -50 wind chill here today, so it was much needed. 🙂

      You’re welcome, Paula! It looks like an incredible place. We don’t have anything planned either, besides Vermont skiing.
