East Coast Trip, Part Two!

For the second leg of our trip we made our way to our family's home in Shelburne, Vermont, on Lake Champlain.  This is one of my most favorite places in the entire world, if not my MOST favorite, and I've spent countless summers here making some of my most treasured memories with my Aunt Ellen. Seriously, I love Vermont- it's hands down my favorite state. I love everything about it, from the green rolling hills to the gorgeous lake, incredible skiing, and lush, lush forests. I can't get enough. And every summer we spend in Vermont makes me fall in love a little more.

This July was no different. We spent our days boating, swimming, and eating delicious food, our family gathered around the table laughing and telling stories. We went night-swimming, enjoyed downtown Burlington, and my sister and I went on long runs each morning.

Here are some photographs from this part of our trip:

  1. Love that couch! And I've only passed through Vermont but I also loved it. Sort of hoping my husband ends up getting a job there. Glad you guys had so much fun!

  2. I was born and raised in Vermont and just moved back this past May. I wish I knew you were here! We could have planned a play date with the kiddos by the water!

  7. It looks so peaceful...wonderful. I can totally understand why you are drown to the place. I'm a big fan of natural peaceful places that get your mind to stop and just be content.
    I swear Danielle, I am so falling in love with henry's smile. He is so so so adorable.

    oh and by the way. I've clicked through your tattoo tuesdays because I wanted to know more about your tattoos. Did I just miss you or haven't you featured your tattoos at all? I'd love to see all of your tattoos and read the stories behind them (hanks too by the way, but I guess that doesn't fit the feature ^^)
    sorry for the long comment. :)

    I love Vermont, and I'm happy you had a great time here! I hope your family's home wasn't damaged by the storm!

  19. Yes! This was my childhood :)

    I grew up in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, so I spent a lot of time in Vermont, too. It's just the same. New England is the most perfect place on Earth.

  20. I really love your blog, and admire you as a person. I know that for "Tattoo Tuesday" you had featured your sister and when answering question number four, she talked about her mother. My parent's are having a increasingly hard time accepting my tattoos, and it's extremely hurtful. I was wondering if your mom would be able to write a guest post to parents with tattooed children and how she accepted it and came to overcome the initial shock (and probably continuing shock that came with it) It's just an idea that popped into my head. Thanks. : )
