Weekend Getaway

As the kick-off to my summer vacation, we took a long weekend trip to Connecticut to visit Dave's family. We didn't do much more than hang out, but we did drive to South Deerfield, Massachusetts on Saturday. What is in South Deerfield, you ask? The Yankee Candle Company Flagship store! I stocked up on some hard to find scents, and smelled all the new scents from the World Fragrance Collection. New scents (at least for me) that I loved: Autumn Wreath, Vanilla Lime and Fresh Mint). Aren't they the prettiest colors? I only bought two boxes and am already regretting not buying more. At $20 for a box of 18, they are a bargain!



The other place we toured was Magic Wings, a butterfly conservatory. Jacob was excited when one landed on him and stuck to him the whole time. He named the butterfly Bob.

Now, I am off from work for the remainder of the next two weeks - with very few plans except to relax, play and piddle around the house. Pure bliss!
