We met Quiana at Alt Summit in January and couldn't wait for her to come visit us at the Inn when we found out she was a fellow East Coaster. You can find her spreading her enthusiasm for life, motherhood, and childhood on her blog Harlem Lovebirds. We were thrilled when her family (of almost four) came up to Vermont for their last trip as a family of three. Here's what Quiana felt inspired by:
"Babymoon" is a relatively new term thrown about when expectant couples embark on a final getaway before baby arrives. Instead my husband and I thought it might be special to turn our visit to the Snapdragon Inn into a familymoon. Some of my earliest and fondest memories are of me and my parents when I was 3 and 4 years old - before my 3 siblings arrived, and I thought it would be an opportunity to provide the same for my 3 1/2 year old daughter, Virginia. Being able to escape NYC metro, which leaves my little family quite tense at times, was a welcome retreat. As we made our way north seeing the cityscape literally transform before our eyes into a more natural terrain brought a sense of peace to us. Because our visit was during Easter weekend it was an especially holy time for us as well. Being able to do something so simple as walk to church on Easter Sunday morning and feel welcomed by the church community was a special memory I know we'll always cherish. The heritage of Windsor was especially felt that day, and we hope to carry the beauty and tranquility of the Snapdragon Inn with us especially during the long, sleepless nights ahead.

Inspired @ Snapdragon is a new series of guest posts from bloggers, writers, artists and creative visitors to the Inn. We've asked guests to share an inspired thought from their time at the Inn. Windsor and the surrounding villages used to be a gathering place for creatives and this is our nod to that incredible legacy.
This series is supported by the Cornish Colony Arts Council whose aim is to preserve and promote creativity in Windsor, Vermont and the surrounding area.
