#OTR50 Day 169: Nature Walks & Naps

Today was day three of the Max & Me holiday getaway. We spent the majority of the day out and about in the Vermont woods or back at the room resting between excursions. Six years ago, we visited this same area and during that trip we did two outdoor activities that have been repeated across […]

#OTR50 Day 168: Holiday Coffee & Waffles

I am the kind of Mom that packs what we need to make homemade waffles and enjoy an oversized cup of coffee in our PJs while on vacation. Plus, seeing as this vacation kitchen has far more counter space and shinier appliances than ours at home, it didn’t feel arduous in the slightest. That’s enough […]

#OTR50 Day 167: I Can Cabot (aka the joy of lactose free cheese)

Made it to Vermont today. First stop even before heading to our Wyndham property? One of several Cabot Cheese locations.

#OTR50 Day 164: September Looming

It is only Thursday night and the week already feels incredibly long. . .  I took a moment to breathe deep and recognized that it isn’t that the weekend *feels* long, it’s that it has been long! It’s been a days of early morning meetings with the middle east and late night calls with the […]

#OTR50 Day 163: The Electric Can Opener Post Note

Continuing from yesterday’s post. The electric can opener rocks. On the other hand, my writing at the moment does not. Have a late night work call with Asia so I’m not pushing it for long in an attempt to turn that issue around this evening. Work calls. . . (I just could not avoid that […]
