Stowe Vermont is my happy place. I needed a vacation from my vacation, and this was just the cup of tea I needed. Of course tea time is at 3:30pm everyday at the Trapp Family Lodge, so that helps. I have been going here since I was 5 years old, it a definitely my second home.
Since I have done almost everything there I don't feel the need to rush around to see everything. I can just chill with a glass of wine and a book and look at the mountain views while chilling on the patio or the gardens. Take a hike or chill by the pool. Paint something that strikes my fancy, which I did do this time one morning. Enjoy talking to my family and playing telestrations by the fireplace while drinking just a tad too much wine ;) Going pub crawling down the mountain with my sister. Eating cabot cheese and Ben and Jerrys ice cream, where I don't care if I gain a few pounds.
