Photo Blog: Autumn in Vermont

October 19, 2010

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons in Vermont.  I can’t quite decide if I love it more than summer or not. I do love the warmth and sunshine of summer, but there’s something special about the fall. . .If only it weren’t immediately followed by my least favorite season, winter. Autumn is a treat […]

Burlington Cow Parade

July 16, 2010

There used to be a saying that there were more cows than people in Vermont.  I’m not sure that’s true any more; but we still do have quite a lot of cows.  Even more this summer, as Burlington is hosting its own unofficial version of a cow parade.  In case you’re unaware of this phenomenon, […]

Restaurant Review: Cafe Bistro Sauce

October 19, 2009

Last Sunday, I had brunch with a friend at Cafe Bistro Sauce in Shelburne, Vermont.  It had been many years since I’d eaten here (two owners/restaurant names ago, in fact).  I’d heard good things about the current version and so was glad to have the opportunity to check it out.  It was a beautiful fall […]

Touring My Own Backyard: Shelburne Farms

October 18, 2009

My friend Heidi and I went out for brunch last weekend in Shelburne and when she heard I had never been to Shelburne Farms, she insisted we go.  I’m so glad we did.  I loved it!  It was a cold autumn day, the leaves were a spectrum of colors, the staff were baking bread in […]
