1. I just can't get over these mountains. I really want to move out of Vermont (I need a city) but I love love love the scenery. I'm glad that I don't take it for granted. 2. this is the view from my work. it's actually a large panorama of the biggest ski mountains in this part of the state, but, well, instagram just couldn't capture them all. 3. this morning I had a spare moment and I devoted it to touching up my nails: Sephora Express nail polish remover (Amy of Coffee Talk just did a post about it, too) and Sephora by OPI in High Maintenance. a lovely red with a hint of orange. 4. the other morning I made whole wheat pumpkin pancakes and just had to doctor them up with chocolate syrup and whipped cream. I just had to.
