Oh D, I hear you on Angela Chase moments. Wintertime blues are the worst, and so true that good music is the BEST medicine! Adele is incredible (so incredible, in fact, that her upcoming show here sold out in 10 minutes!). Also, it turns out she is really funny. I listened to this show the other night was just wishing we could be friends.
Annnyways, I'd love to tell you all about my trip last weekend. My girlfriends from high school and I started a tradition of getting together once a year for a "GOGH Trip". GOGH is the name of the "band" we started in high school (we thought we were suuuper clever and artsy/deep). Let's just say that the band didn't last… but our friendship has! I’m so lucky to have these women in my life and I treasure these weekends so much! I especially love when these trips involve escaping NYC to connect to nature and remind me of how gorgeous my home state really is!
We stayed in scenic Lincoln, New Hampshire and did lots of wintertime things, including snowshoeing (my first time ever!) on a trail with a covered bridge, rushing streams and even some brave souls climbing ice walls...
(The itty bitty specs on those massive cliffs of ice are climbers! Eeeeek!)
Another highlight of the trip was the delicious dinner we had on Saturday night. We made Ina Garten's Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash. WOW. I'm so making this again, and you're invited over!

Overall, the weekend included: relaxing, snacking, laughing, piling into a car and belting out "All I Really Want" and "Thing Called Love" at the top of our lungs, and the constant wearing of sweatpants. Basically, Blythe Heaven. So what are you up to this weekend? Hope you're feeling more Clarissa and less Angela and that Adele is blasting through your house.
Really missin' you,
