Summer in Vermont means my dear friend Melissa lives only an hour away from me and we have all the time in the world to do the things we love - stream swimming, ice-cream eating, and laughing at silly faces/ everything else.  And since it's Vermont there are magical-looking streams everywhere and ice-cream stands include things like maple syrup soft serve (!!).  It's only been a couple of weeks but my apartment and this little town is already starting to feel like home.
