Yesterday we drove two hours north to Franconia, New Hampshire into the White Mountains. The fact that we can drive only two hours and be in grand mountains brings Dan and I great joy- in Texas we would have to drive a day and a half to get to see mountains like these in Colorado! Franconia, besides being known for being home to Robert Frost and Bode Miller, is also the corporate offices of Garnet Hill (home of lovely linens and wonderful down comforters) they have an outlet there and they were having a Sale! It was a beautiful clear day and the high in Franconia was 9 degrees! It's a good thing we went yesterday, as last night we got 11 inches of snow!

This is a New Hampshire rest stop... they have fireplaces! This is reason #1,000,527 why we love New Hampshire!!

In the end I didn't buy a single thing for the house. But I did buy two really cute Spring jackets (and for those of you in the South, who knew?!, but Spring jackets really do have a purpose in other parts of the country! In the South we just thought they were some "funny figment of a clothing buyer's imagination" because it's too hot in the South to wear jackets in the Spring!!)
