Gist and I went to Western Mass yesterday to celebrate the Veterans Day holiday. It was a beautiful warm and sunny day – a last breath of sunshine before the cold rain, sleet, snow, and ice that are headed our way in the next few months. We didn’t do a ton of stuff but it was all really nice and relaxing. We drove on our old scenic drives, had lunch at Paul & Elizabeth’s (as always), walked around Northampton, met Jeremy and Kate for dinner at ABC (a match made in heaven), and had coffee and dessert at the Black Sheep. It was delightful.
