for only being away four days, i am awfully excited to be back home. R and i went up to southern vermont and the capital region of new york. we didn’t do anything for our anniversary this summer because of my trip to texas, so we took advantage of the long weekend for the teachers’ convention. we didn’t have any real destination in mind, so we pulled up the vermont brewery associations map and picked towns that had good beer, good cheese, and cheap-ish bed and breakfasts. it was nice to just get away from it all and not worry about anything baby related except remembering to take my BCPs. but at the same, i couldn’t help thinking that these would be my last flights of beer samples for (hopefully) 9-ish month.
