I think it is funny how life takes you on a winding path. You might now know it about me, but my family moved to Vermont from Ohio when I was a freshman in high school and let me tell you, as a teenager, I hated every minute of it. It was too small, there was nothing to do, the nearest shopping mall was thirty minutes away or almost two hours away (if you wanted a real mall, you know that is very important to a teenager). When I graduated from high school, I high-tailed it to New York City, I traded the Green Mountains for tall city sky scrapers and never looked back. It has been nearly twelve years that I have been away and a recent wedding brought me back up there on different terms - I found myself relishing in the beauty of the rolling green hills, the wide-open spaces dotted with mountain springs and the field upon field of wildflowers. I felt fortunate to be able to share a place that didn't really have that great of memories with my fiance and our (beyond happy) dog. I hope you enjoy these photographs from Pawlet, Vermont and Mount Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. Continue for more...
