This past weekend we were able to sneak away from Texas for a few days. The reason? One of our best friends, Meagan and Dan, were getting married! A little background – Meagan was a friend of mine from the start at College. In the program we were in, there were very few girls, so a friendship started quickly between us. We continued to be friends throughout our 4 years there in Vermont. After college, we stayed in touch and always check in with each other at all major milestones and moments in our lives, even from Texas and Vermont. When Kyle and I got married in 2007, Meagan was our maid of honor. She did a great job and I was honored to be part of her special day as well, this past weekend! Dan, was someone we both knew in college as well – she has even known him for longer. He is a great guy and I’m so happy they found each other. I know they will have a great life together.
So as I was saying, we were able to escape and spend some time in Jay, VT at Jay Peak where the wedding was taking place. If you are unfamiliar with Vermont, Jay is in the northern most part of Vermont, to the east. You are really only about 10 minutes away from Canada when you are driving around the area. It is where Meagan and Dan both grew up going skiing, where they had their first date and where Dan proposed. It was only fitting to have the wedding there too!
It’ s kind of funny that we ended up at Jay this June, since last year we ended up in Colorado in Vail at another Ski Resort and we don’t ski! I think ski resorts are great in the summer months though, especially when you are from Texas!!
They have a new resort and it is gorgeous! I forget the natural beauty that is Vermont and New England every time I’m away for a long time here in Texas. I love Texas, but man, it’s not nearly as pretty as New England.So green, so lush and the temperature and weather was PERFECT! Even the cows down the road looked good!
The wedding itself went off really well! Meagan did an amazing job of getting it all together and of course, since she is a designer, everything was beautiful.
As I’ve said before, It’s important to get away from time to time, as a couple without your kid(s) with you. We had a great time, it was nice sleeping in, doing whatever we wanted and just having fun as a couple rather than “mom and dad”!
Of course, Lennox had a great time too at her Mimi’s house, as she always does! It was nice to get back to her though – and her quirky / sassy ways.
Now, it’s time to get back to reality. We have a little girl who is turning FIVE YEARS OLD this week!!
