Vermont or Bust!

In August I went to Vermont for a couple of days for my friends Aaron and Laura’s wedding.  It was a beautiful wedding and so perfect for them.  They got married in a hidden church in the woods that we had to walk up a dirt road to get to (though there was a guy giving hay-rides for the people who didn’t feel like making the short trek).  It’s a church that doesn’t get used regularly anymore, and as we were waiting for the ceremony to begin, we complimented Aaron on the location.  His response was, “Yeah, it’s beautiful, but we had to come in a few days ago and sweep up all the bat shit!”  Awesome.

If you can’t tell by that, they are a pretty unique and interesting couple,  and in the spirit of their relationship, they’ve decided to have an unusual honeymoon.  They’ve just moved to Vermont, where they are planning on cramming every bit of their state into the next 6 months, as an extended honeymoon.   And, fabulously, they’ve turned it into a website.  So:

I hope you’ll take a look at it.  Not only are they two of the most wonderful, kind, warm people I’ve ever met.  They are also both brilliant and hilarious, so I’m sure the blog will be nothing less.

Congrats, Aaron and Laura!  I can’t wait to follow your adventures!

It is no secret that I am cold-hearted and icy, so imagine my surprise when this awesome video of elementary school kids singing “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac made rivulets of just-melted blood flow through my veins once again.
