Happy Sunday and hello from Vermont! I am IN LOVE with this magical state. Vermont has exceeded all my expectations from the landscapes to the fall foliage to quaint towns. Edwin and I are in Vermont for our one year anniversary trip and it’s safe to say that we are dreading this trip coming to an end. In addition to Vermont, we spent a day in New Hampshire and are spending a night in Boston. I mentioned it here but, I told my sister, Sarah, we wanted to go to New England for our one year anniversary and she helped us plan the best trip (she’s a travel advisor!). I’ve literally been singing from the Vermont hilltops how happy I am here, ha! I’ll be sharing a lot from our trip on here so stay tuned.
I hope everyone else is having a glorious fall weekend! Keep reading for my Weekend Reads, No. 79 complete with a Vermont fall foliage guide (so helpful!), Goop’s origin story (fascinating!), a fall tv guide, 20% off at my favorite home store, the difference between luck and success, a great save vs. splurge comparison, a mental health “shelf,” and more!
