Happy Birthday Pete. We can't wait to see you in May!
We had heavy wet snow the day after Spring began. "Spring" eh? It was perfect for snowmen building and snowballs and eating apparently. We built a snowman they called, "Max" and a small one called "Baby Roxcy snowgirl". Roxcy quickly stole Max's nose and used it as means to get the snow into her mouth faster. I asked them to stand next to Max for a photo and they both immediately started eating him. My little snow cannibals.
Above you can watch one of the rarest minorities in the world foraging for food in her natural environment. It's riveting stuff. According to HuffPo and Wikipedia (so basically fact) , only 1% of the population has red hair & blue eyes.
It is so cold out but I've been inside with my sick kids all week and I was about to go lose it. We were rolling a ball on the ground for the 100th time and I said, "do you wanna build a snowman?" and out we went even thought with the windchill it was crazy cold. Like, for real real, cold. It's kind of nutso that I took my kids outside but we had to get out and although my fingers burned from the cold (inside my super thermal gloves) it's like they didn't even feel it as the joy, and snot, and dried Tylenol covered their faces.
These two kind, beautiful people spent the weekend at the Snapdragon Inn a couple weeks ago and I was able to snap some pix before they hopped on their train to NYC. It was coooooold but the snow was acting as such a great light bounce that I made them suffer outside for a few minutes. I love all the laughing and love.
They posted about their visit to Vermont on their blog in two parts: Here and Here. We've also started a new post on the Inn blog called Inspired @ Snapdragon and Mara & Danny are our first contributors. Check out what inspired them during their stay at the Inn.
And if you are looking for some good content, they pour everything they've got into their blog posts. I find a real positivity and hopefulness in their messages.
