  1. Absolutely cut a few peony blooms for the house! I read a hint that as soon as you bring them in the house, dip (not drown!) in bowl of cool water. That will get rid of any ants you may have brought in. Enjoy them

  2. The best time to go back to Vermont is in the fall. The leaves are the absolute best there in the fall.

  3. My hair philosophy is it grows back so give it a try and go short! Summer is a great time to deal with less hair. Just ask your boys – they look so cute with their buzz cuts!

    And I agree with the other poster if you have never experienced an East Coast autumn go back to Vermont in the fall.

  4. hey y’all- great list! I would love to visit Vermont! Can u Take me next time? ha Yes Maria get ur hair cut short- but…not to short. Love the swimsuit! so cool!

  5. Peloton – 100 percent worth it. I’ve had mine since December. I love it. And in addition to spinning you get yoga, meditation and strength training included with your membership.

  6. Love the clothing you posted! I ordered both the dress and the comfy pants. Please keep the recs coming!
    And I agree that you should not cut your hair so short that you cannot pull it into a ponytail. I like my bob, but that is something I regretted when I cut my hair.

  7. Josh – I train on a Wahoo Kickr trainer in the winter. You can control it with one of many apps for training. Love it. Come try mine if you want.
