top ten tuesdays - to do...

without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. - gloria steinem
it's a good day to dream and in my mind, it's always a good day to plan. plus, gloria is right - life is all about possibilities - both those planned and those that surprise you. and being the planner that i am, the idea that dreaming fits into the planning category, is just amazing to me.

so with gloria's words of wisdom in mind, i am going to create a dream to do list each month - events i want to go to, places i want to visit, food i want to eat - so that there is plan to the madness and the moments and the possibilities. it's more fun that way and it's always good to have things to look forward to. plus - I want all your feedback! i need your suggestions and inside scoop as i dream about the possibilities of what the coming months here in vermont have to offer.

top ten april to dos...
  1. run the middlebury maple run (aka the sweetest half) - april 25th. 2nd annual 1/2 marathon in middlebury. complete with a post race party at two brothers tavern.
  2. explore pine street, burlington, vt - my new favorite part of the city. it's off the beaten path, but full of wonderful treasures - yummy food, great coffee, and plenty of art galleries and vintage shops. thanks to design sponge for the inspiration road map.
  3. stop by st albans maple sugar weekend - april 30th. st albans. silly me, i thought all the sugaring celebrations were behind us!
  4. blunch (yes, blunch) at claire's restaurant, hardwick, vt.
  5. hike camel's hump - after the snow melts, before the crowds.
  6. enjoy a sunset picnic at charlotte beach with some tasty take out from pizza on earth (reminder - order 2 pies, 1 not enough)
  7. spend the day in stowe just exploring this quintessential vermont town. lots there to discover thanks to all the great trips recommended at trazzler.
  8. sunshine day dream festival - april 17th. killington. a tribute to the grateful dead. spring skiing + tiedye + live music + pond skimming = amazing. jerry would be proud.
  9. mud season variety show. april 16th & 17th. randolph . this annual rite of spring features local talent and local humor. hurry! the whole town goes which means the 575-seat chandler music hall sells out!
  10. wine taste at boyden valley winery. c'mon, its wine - no explanation necessary.

so, what do you think? what am i missing? what is on your to do list this month? c'mon, try it, it's fun!
