A Perfect Vermont Weekend with Molly

Can you believe we live across the street from this amazing swimming hole?

This weekend, Molly came up to visit! It was almost exactly a year since our first big trip to Vermont, so it was great to be able to think back on everything we've done since then! We had a lot to do around the house, so I'm hopeful that she had a good time and we balanced out all our arguing about tile in two separate trips to Home Depot with a few fun swimming holes and trips!

On Saturday, we got up pretty early and grabbed McWhits to enjoy at King Arthur Flour, where we explored all their incredible baking wares and got coffee.

Afterward, we made our way to Strafford to check out the meeting house and Old City Falls, a gorgeous waterfall and swimming hole that was previously the site of the main Strafford town when it was first chartered in 1761.

In the afternoon, we headed down the road to Sweetland Farm, where Literary North was hosting a great poetry reading at Poetry and Pie. I was worried when we moved here that we might not be able to find as much of a poetry community as I had in New York, but there's tons of interesting work happening here and wonderful people to share it with.

In the evening, we did more work around the house (filled up a whole dumpster!) and made a big dinner to share. While we were eating cheese outside, we kept hearing this strange noise in the distance, something I could only assume was a dragon. We didn't think much about it, but on Sunday morning, we woke up to the same sound and saw a hot air balloon landing in the field across the street! It was pretty incredible to wake up to.

On Sunday we checked out another swimming hole, right across from our house, and then did a fair amount of house work and hanging about. I can't think of a better way to spend the weekend!
