I’ve reached the age. or maybe just stage, in which full-family holidays are just not a thing anymore. Between cross-coastal parents and in-laws and in-laws’ in-laws, it’s next to impossible to celebrate a holiday with the whole clan in attendance. So this past weekend, the Fanning fam packed their bags and headed west to Williamstown, MA for a little pre-Christmas getaway. Two years ago, we did something similar, and MJF and I vowed that we’d always try to make a mini December escape happen… to take a break from events and shopping and stressing and everything else that hampers with the joy of this season and just be together and celebrate it instead.
Between peppermint mochas and games of trivia and wandering the trails around Williams College, I didn’t pick up my camera once, so instead all I’ve got to show for this weekend are some funny photos of me in front of a pink wall I spotted from about two miles away [I’ve got great wall-dar]. Because it was SIXTY DEGREES [so different from the last trip we took as a family!], I was bare-leggin’ it and needed nothing more than this super soft Berkshires Coat, which couldn’t have been more appropriately named for our whereabouts. It seems like we always go from burning hot to freezing cold in New England, so this was a refreshing break to wear nothing more than a light winter coat.
Now everyone KNOWS I am miserable in anything but 55+ degrees, but I have to admit, I was looking for just a light dusting of snow…does anyone else keep forgetting that we’re a mere week from Christmas because of this crazy warm front?!
