Ornament history

The tree on the corner of Church and Main in Old Wethersfield.

I love Christmas time.  My family is fun to spend time with.  Tradition is comforting.  Getting gifts for family, though a bit overwhelming, is mostly fun.  My favorite part of the season is taking moments to just stop and observe.  I love to sit in my living room with a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate or hot tea with chocolate and stare at the tree.  I love to turn off all the lights and stare at anyone’s tree.  Which sounds a little creepy, but normally only people who know me let me in their house to stare.  Seeing all the houses aglow and the lights in yards and along streets makes the cold days better. I wish people left their lights on until mid-March.  This from a girl who doesn’t put any Christmas lights up, but once someone has, they really should let them linger longer.

Matt: My Favorite Person

This Saturday Matt and I celebrated 11 years together.  He is a joy and my favorite friend.  He is a big part of Personal Euphoria because Matt encouraged me to take the leap and quit my day job to start PE and begin teaching Pilates full time.

One of our favorite pastimes is to stroll around Old Wethersfield.  We love doing it so much we moved here.  In all our travels we have yet to find a town where we enjoy walking as much.  Not only does Old Wethersfield have such a quaint New England feel, but it’s flat and you can walk forever.  We have a three mile and five mile loop that we do regularly.  In my experience it’s hard to find a place where you can walk on sidewalks, have great views. and walk that far without repeating yourself.

Walking is good for our health, but it’s also good for our minds.

Free Pilates in Wethersfield

I always love our mini outdoor session of Pilates.  I’ll admit I’m a sucker for Old Wethersfield—a spectacular place to spend time.  This year so far we’ve had a great turn out.  Thanks to everyone who has made it so far.  Remember—we have one more class this Saturday.  Hope we get to meet you there.

And consider saving time for a walk afterward or breakfast at Aroma Bistro.  Or come back for lunch at Lucky Louie’s followed by ice cream at the Wethersfield Creamery.  The Cove Deli it also a great place for sandwiches and salads, all of which have fun names.

A Good Walk

My favorite place to walk is around Old Wethersfield, CT. I love looking at all the old houses; the trees are huge, and you can get fabulous sunrise and sunset views over the cove. It seems like the perfect place. Matt and I have a regular three mile walk and another five mile walk we like to take when we have more time.

Do you like to walk? Where is your favorite place to stroll?
