A Soft Sunday

Wondering the green, holding it close to me. I've missed you during these cold months. Along with the sun rays and how they'd kiss my shoulders and nose, leaving little traces. I open up my arms and my heart grows, rooting a little deeper. I could stay here forever.

This Easter was spent with animals, loved ones, and in the presence of some beautiful sites of nature.   It started at 4am: my parents and I woke up and drove about two hours to Mount Mansfield in Stowe. We were supposed to be attending a sunrise service, but we ended up missing the gondola up to the mountain top. We were bummed to say the least- but the adventure certainly didn’t stop there. Since we had the pleasure of being in the picturesque village of Stowe, we drove up to the Trapp Family Logde. It’s a pretty magical feeling to be on the same mountain that the Trapp family eventually settled in after escaping Austria. If you ever find yourself in Vermont, I highly suggest making the trip to Stowe, to see the beautiful land their lodge is set upon.  After being in Stowe for the morning, we ventured back to our home in Burlington, got dressed up, and went over to Shelburne Farms.  I might not have talked about Shelburne Farms before on this blog, but it’s a place I hold very close to my heart. I grew up going to summer camps there, having my earliest interactions with farm animals, and many more fun memories that I’ve made there in the past few years.   For two years now, my mom and I have gone to the farm to do a sort of photoshoot with the day old lambs. This year was especially memorable, I felt a special kind of connection to the animals especially after going on my second year of being vegan. While I was taking photos with the lambs they were being strangely affectionate (a type of affection no one else was receiving from the animals present), which I was totally fine with because they were adorable.      Outfit details:   Fluffy Jacket: Serena Williams line by HSN  Black Jeans: Bonton  Shirt: TJ Maxx  Shoes: TJ Maxx     My fluffy cream jacket is the latest addition to my closet. I can’t even begin to describe how cozy it is, and the amount of compliments I have received since wearing it.   Mother nature granted us the  perfect  day to see all the animals and for a full day of wandering around my state of Vermont.   After Shelbure farms we headed back out for another adventure, “too much is not enough” is kinda our family motto, can you tell?  Anyways, we headed north and ended up in a few different villages, some of which include: Westford, Saint Albans, and Jeffersonville.   I know I’ve said it a million times, but wandering on the weekend throughout Vermont is like second nature to me. I crave to be around forests and although all of Vermont is pretty woodsy, I live in Burlington, which is a city, and escaping it for the weekend to get a dose of the empty fields and endless forests fills me right back up.   The trees are calling and I must go back soon,  I’ll be back Westford.  xoxo,  Morgan

Just touching that old tree was truly moving, because when you touch trees, you have such a sense of the passage of time, of history. it's like you're touching the essence, the very substance of life
