our weekend away was spent at a swedish-inspired b&b, little gnesta in newport, vermont. ruth who runs little gnesta was such a delight and really made it feel like we were in back in sweden! 

i wish i could be more exciting but, my favorite parts were:

the swedish bed +

the homemade breakfast granola

i literally have never slept in a more comfortable bed - i felt like i was waking up IN a cloud (so not just ON a cloud, IN a cloud)! my first thought upon waking was "omg, when am i getting back into this bed?!"  in addition to laying in that luxurious swedish bed (carpe diem), ruth did not disappoint with her scandinavian style breakfast using locally sourced breads, cheeses, fruits and she makes the granola from scratch, which i could not get enough of!

her motto on coffee is:

"it's a bit strong, you can always add more water to it, but you can't add more coffee."

(which if you have fika'ed with us, you know that's the name of the game!)

laying on a swedish cloud bed: check.

eating scandinavian breakfast: check.

looking at swedish interior design books, check // ruth has gone above and beyond with her design, style, taste, colors, furnatiure to really make it feel like i was back in downtown stockholm. the breakfast table was set for royalty and the dishes, candle holders table linens, all from good ol' sverige. 

OK, OK! so i make it sound like we sat around in a bed, eating and looking at swedish books, but, we also went:

xc skiing in craftsbury (which was showing vasaloppet on swedish tv...for real real!)

exploring newport, the shops and cafes and restaurants

(finally) going to the bread & puppet museum! my jaw is still on the floor, and i must clear my calendar this year to get to a live performance. i am so in love, intrigued and need to know more. the grand finale was i found the book of vermonters i have been wanting for years now in their gift shop!

really nice to bring camera too. i usually leave it behind to you know, live life, but it was fun to be a "tourist" in my own state. XOXO
