Little Somethings of Me - 10 Things I Miss About Vermont

I am a North East gal and have endured 22 Vermont winters and soaked in the serene Vermont sunshine. I grew through trials and tribulations in a very small and quaint town like any other teenager and graduated in a class of 200. And instead of my intent of moving far away when college came around I merely traveled a meager 45 minutes to my beautiful campus - UVM in Burlington Vermont. In the beginning of my senior year I met a sweet boy who really made my heart skip a beat and he like no other before him was very different and seemed to have a heart just as big as mine. After school came to a final and screeching halt, after I submitted my teaching portfolio, after I taught a grueling summer school, and spent a sticky hot month at home I moved over 200 miles to be with that sweet boy. 

I will get to more about my sweet boy in another feature but for now I will focus on what I miss about my very first and always home. 

1.) I miss the smell of fall and the crinkle of rusty leaves under foot.
2.) I miss the fresh breeze flowing in during summer as I sit on the barstool in my mother's kitchen
3.) I miss hiking with friends and truly appreciating the beauty of Vermont at the pinnacle.
4.) I miss laughter shared between a dear friend and I.
5.) I miss the warmth in my heart when my whole family fills a room.
6.) I miss my brother & watching him grow leaps and bounds as high school unfolds for him.
7.) I miss warm embraces and voices of my parents.
8.) I miss the waterfront at Lake Champlain in Burlington, which always had a calming effect on me.
9.) I miss running around barefooted in shallow rivers or my backyard.
10.) I miss the handmade, organic, farmer's market, small town vibe.

Thanks for stopping by and learning a bit more about me! - Lo
