It is impossible to say this without emotion, so please excuse the capital letters. I am excited to report that VERMONT HAS MOUNTAINS!
(Even better than the mountains, however is this: I saw my PARENTS today for the first time in OVER FOUR MONTHS. They met me at the top of Stratton Mountain and brought me all my favorite things to eat and something new to read. I cried. It was all kinds of perfect. It feels SO DAMN GOOD to be this close to home.)
(Also: FIVE weekends in a row seeing people I love. How awesome is that?)
