We spent this weekend in Vermont. As usual, it was a great time. There is something about Vermont that just makes me feel happy, calm, and relaxed. As I sat on my aunt and uncle's porch with my family, listened to my niece babble, felt the cool breeze, and heard the wind chimes, I thought "this is one of my happy places." Plus, being there means I get to run here:

Now it is back to reality, back to the business of being in Ottawa for work for a few days, an assignment due on Friday (and another on July 31st), and getting going on my thesis. Oh - and a trail race on Saturday! (but that should be fun). I'm glad last night was a beautiful evening to drive home - provided a little extra calm before the storm.
