Who else had a smile on their face today when you stepped outside to see those bright, bright bluebird skies? ❄️ I haven’t introduced myself to many of my followers in awhile, so now is as good a time as any, right? ❄️ Someone once told me that to make a good living in VT, you’ll have more than one job. That’s good for me, because I’m my happiest with an overflowing to do list and lots of problems to solve! Full-time, I’m the COO of a real estate expansion team within Keller Williams and lead 20 real estate teams and 180 agents across the country. I also am a #VermontRealtor, a coach, trainer and speaker. I also run Travel Like a Local: Vermont, which is on its sixth year, manage two #VermontBands, do some marketing consulting for small businesses, and write books about our great state: VT Creemees in next! ❄️ I work a lot. It’s my hobby. But I also work to fund my big why... which is collecting as many life experiences as possible. This also really helps my mindset... Got the flu? New life experience! Wake up with your bank account drained? That’ll make a good story someday! Find someone dead? (This is true...) It might cause your world to turn upside down, but life unravels as it’s supposed to. So collecting life experiences is what I do! ❄️ I’ve lived in New Jersey, Montana, Vermont, Maine and on Campobello Island in Canada. I’ll add #Charleston to this list someday! ❄️ I’ve never worked retail but I did work at a luxury dude ranch before heading to college (@triplecreekranch ), and also throughout the years, worked as an Innkeeper, a breakfast cook, I even recorded books for ADA students in college, one of my most rewarding jobs. Most of my jobs were in Marketing, as I love the psychology behind it and the stories we can tell. ❄️ I happen to be married to a brewer at one of #VT’s best breweries. Hence, my beer posts are R&D and beer vacations are always welcome ! Now, tell me about you... who are you and why are you here? #vermontblogger #travelblogger

What a beautiful day here in Stowe, VT as we remember MLK Jr. It was my day off so I went for a snowshoe up the Cady Hill network of trails. Which are right across the road from the shop. You can easily access them from @ranchcampvt which is also across the road from me. They rent snowshoes for free! It was such an incredible day. So pretty up there & quiet! I only saw one other person on the trails. I could spend all my time in the woods. However, I own a shop & I spend most of my time there. Which is pretty cool, too. I’m back at the shop tomorrow & I’ll be shipping out more of my Mt Mansfield Topo map water bottles. Those are popular & I’ve had them for in the shop barely a week. The Stowe Topo map bottles even have Cady Hill on them. If you want to check out the trails up there go to Stowe Trails (dot) org. If you want one of those sweet water bottles (check out the post before this one) then stop into @tangerineandolive 🙌🏼 (or DM me & I’ll ship one out to you) 🤗 Enjoy your night, Friends. See you tomorrow!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The care I give is P E R S O N A L. I take time to get to know my patients, building rapport is one of my favorite parts of the job. I’ve been blessed to have some great doctors, however, I’ve also had some not so great doctors. As a patient I want my doctor to take time to hear my concerns and provide personalized and empathetic care. So I decided as a doctor I would alway provide that to those who have trusted me with their health. I want patients to feel comfortable sharing what’s on their minds or whatever stressors are in their lives—because I know that this can impact the body and also the healing that needs to take place. I will listen to you, cry with you, and be there for you as a health care provider. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have worked hard to establish boundaries and not bring my work home with me, yet sometimes at home my mind is on my patients. I sat looking at this view (I’m so in love with it) and I was thinking about a patient I recently found out had passed away. Losing patients is never easy. I feel it deeply because I really become invested in my patients, I treat them like family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful community amongst a breathtaking landscape, I am grateful for the gift of life, I am thankful for all my patients—past and current, and I look forward to meeting new patients and to be a part of their health journey. #gratefulalways . . . . . #wanderlust #vt #vermonting #802 #bopo #photography #instagood #mentalhealth #love #ig #vermont #healthychoices #lifestyle #healthwellness #womandoctor #bossbabe #healthandwellness #snow #letitsnow #nature #recovery #health #opioidcrisis #motivation #freezing #winter

Our #winecrushmonday is dedicated to Yves Cuilleron’s Les Vignes d'à Côté'. Syrah is one of our winter favorites due to it’s natural boldness. Syrah has a habit of hitting your taste buds instantly, then descending into a series of beautiful, complex notes. Imagine it like your favorite firework. We’re very into this bottle of Cuilleron. We have plenty of his bottles for you to choose from, but start with this one for $22.99 in our wine shop!

So this photo is from 2 weeks ago 🙃 .⁠ In other news, I'm still in a photo rut, and the weather calls for more snow and overcast skies this coming weekend. I've been thinking about hibernating?

Yesterday. was. Awesome . I’d been checking the weather all day on Saturday, snow was in the forecast for Sunday night. My plan was to try and get out Monday. But at 11:30pm I checked again, and now the snow was coming tonight. Our crazy New England weather was living up to its name. I knew @stowemt was going to be busy capitalizing on the holiday weekend. I hadn’t made any plans, but hit up a few friends...at almost midnight. So I set my alarm, and aimed to be at a trail head by sunrise. Going on a solo mission always makes me uncomfortable, especially with our lack of snow. There are so many things that could go wrong. I knew I could probably go to a zone that’s more crowded. But this line, despite the low tide, has been on my mind for a long time. So as it came time to decide on a day alone on an isolated line, or a crowded zone I decided to send it solo. And I’m glad I did because I made some friends, and found that gooood, but shallow snow pacc. All in all I Toured over 5 miles, and mapped out some amazing skiing for the future. All of this thanks to my @daymakertouring adapters, they just work. No worrying about snow getting in the way, and my hiking/skinning pace are just about the same. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ sore, fulfilled, and very stoked for more. . Now back to work.

Raise your hand if you've never felt "normal"! 🙋🏼‍♀️⁣ ⁣ Here's the thing though. The only definition of normal that should actually exist is what you live day-to-day. THAT'S your normal.⁣ ⁣ And you can't live someone else's normal by that definition. You can only live yours. By wishing you were living someone else's normal, you're actually cheating yourself out of the JOY meant for you in your own normal.⁣ ⁣ There's so much beauty in your life, but if you are too wrapped up in checking out someone else's, you're missing it!⁣ ⁣ Today, find one thing in your normal life you're grateful for and share about it! (Tag me and/or comment below when you're done so I can celebrate YOUR NORMAL with you!) #focusonthepositive

Well, I got photos downloaded last night and partially culled, but not ready to upload yet, so figured I’d share another quick video. This is a drive thru of Chiselville Covered Bridge. We’ve been here a couple times before in summer and have taken a few shots from the river below, but yesterday was great for this quick video and a few drone shots that looked pretty good on screen. We stopped here after passing through Sunderland and getting some great aerial shots of @hillfarminnvt, will share those over the next few days as well!

My town pays this guy to drive around with homophobic / anti-gay bumpersticker. The slogan “Take Back Vermont” was used during the early 2000’s to protest Vermont legalizing civil-unions between gay couples before gay marriage was legal. Civil Unions helped tourism and local businesses in the surrounding towns. Halifax has a semi-secret/well-known public nude-swimming spot. The only a portion of that community of local naturists who enjoy and manage/maintain that spot are gay. But the spot does get (and welcome) gay couples who travel from outta state to relax in the buff. The Halifax Gorge, another non-nude swimming spot just down the road has pretty much been blockaded and made in accessible to thwart neighboring Massachusetts kids from too much tough-housing in our town. We are most unwelcoming here and we then we pretend we’re all innocent and that’s not the case by claiming “safety concerns” and trying to “preserve” some sort of old way of life. This town needs proactive and progressive leadership and not just old nervous folk blocking progress or the modern priorities needed for any town that wants to support young families or business. In 15years our town is gonna be 40% over the age of 60. 15% of that is over 80 by 2035. And VT kids always leave VT, so that 25% of Halifax’s population that is currently under 18 isn’t going to be here through their 20s and into their 30s. I just don’t know what this town is gonna look like in the future. And with out good forward/long term thinking or guidance and leadership. I know we’re not a progressive town, and realistically that 25-44 demographic around here is largely non-progressive and like firing off their guns in town and burning rubber outside the Community Hall. They like letting their 7 years old own gasoline powered snowmobiles and dirt bikes. They like having 3-40 junk cars in their lawn. And I’m bipolar II from a foreign country who went to private schools and then art school. I’m not gonna be much help around here. Though, Mayor Masters does have a fun authoritarian ring to it. I know there’s no mayor, guys. But maybe I can help out at the Secret Guild of Maplers.
