new england’s finest.

it’s that time. time to pull out the pictures from my trip home to the states; and, as usual, i’ve got plenty to share. so be ready for a few posts over the next few days! woo hoo! you feel excited too, right?

 when we left stockholm, the snow started to fall. ironic, huh? after the de-icing process, we were off!

 after about 8 and a half hours, we landed in newark, new jersey… just steps away from NYC as you can see! what a beautiful skyline!

 my parents picked us up at the airport and we made our first purchase. an amazing peppermint mocha!

we drove straight up to connecticut to meet my aunt & 2 cousins… boy, oh boy, fun times with my family! geez, i love them all so much.

we only spent one night in connecticut before we all loaded up and headed off together for a few days!

the first stop was the new england area… vermont to be exact. it is one of the few states that i had never visited before, so check that off my list of places to go! oh yeah. we were only there for a few days, but it was just enough of a taste to let me know that i wanna go back & explore the tiny state filled with mountains, forests, and cute, little new england villages. freaking adorable & beautiful!

 cozy family dinner time!!

the view when i woke up in the morning. yes, that is a ski slope right there! soooo beautiful & peaceful.

 my dad & molly enjoying some morning coffee.

lina & molly cuddling. cuties.

game time between cousins! love our sexy plaid pj pants that match the sofa. hehe.

 a typical ski resort condo. i’d love to come here regularly on the weekends!

 the ski bunnies (my cousin & lina) and me. that’s right. i don’t ski. i do much better taking pictures or drinking something in the lodge at the base of the ski slopes. hehe.

 at the base of the mountain.

 my girl can ski!!!

 hangin’ with my cousin. inside. yep.

 silly, crazy dad. cracking us all up!

 afternoon coziness.

 beautiful, picturesque vermont. can it get more american new england than this?!

 an awesome country store that has, well, everything. one of those general stores that supplied villagers with everything they needed back in the 1700 & 1800s… and they still have whatever you might need in order to be a good vermont-ian.

 like syrup. gotta get some vermont maple syrup!

 and paper masks… everyone needs one, right?

 just gorgeous!

 on the road again!! driving south to north carolina!

 we tried to find woodstock. you know, the big field where all the crazy hippies gathered in 1969. i should have been there. we never saw the field, but we took a crazy detour & found the little town called woodstock. still, a place where hippies & musicians hang out. sweet.

 still driving… a never-ending trip it seemed. but, north carolina was just a few hours away!!

and the next update… well, i’ll bet you can guess what the pictures are gonna be, right?!

peace out.

      Well, last October we talked about making a trip to the states together! I think we should! Perhaps we could sneak some time in my family’s Vermont condo?! 🙂 xoxo

  3. I love Vermont. My parents used to have a winter vacation home right behind Mount Snow. Vermont in the spring and summer is absolutely breathtaking.
