Where Did You Get That?

I was really lucky to spot this one.

Burton Backpack
One of the women at our first retreat brought this day pack along (her's was actually in a different color that seems to be sold out, but I also adore this blue one.) 

It's true that many of us at the retreat were flat out raving about this back pack. And I'm not the only one who took a quick photo so that I could buy it later.

The company is called Burton and it's made in Burlington, VT which makes me happy. So many good memories from Vermont. :) They're also a super environmentally responsible company, which I admire.

I decided to actually buy one of these backpacks as I'd been wanting a smaller pack for day trips, bus trips, and carry-ons. We're huge fans of Amazon and made our purchase there as they offered free shipping. (Our nephew brought it for us when he came to stay with us and I didn't mind that a super hip 19 year-old thought this thing was cool.)


This pack has already gone with us to the hot springs, farmer's markets, and nearby craft towns. It would be a great gift for any couple wanting to go on more outings. (Spring, spring, spring!)

P.S. What are your favorite day trips in your area? In NYC, we loooved going to anything in the Hudson Valley. In Arizona, I loved going to see the red rocks in Sedona. While dating in Boston, our favorite (and first) day trip was going to the DARLING seaside town of Portsmouth, NH for a good meal and a walk around the town. And Danny says that in Utah, he loved going for a drive to Timpanogas or Aspen Grove.

  3. Her bag was sort of an brown-olive color on the main part of the bag, and then it had some bright poppy straps. You may be able to find something on e-bay or something. But it didn't appear to be available on Burton or on Amazon. And yes! So many of the color combinations are great - I really like several of them.

    1. How are you liking it so far? Do you recommend it or are there any cons? Trying to find a backpack for a trip.

  4. Ahh, I love everything about it. I can see why everyone was eye balling it.

    I live in Seattle, and one of my favorite things is to do early morning hikes (as in, like 3am...) and watch the sun rise by the time I make it to the top. Google Rattlesnake Ridge. It's a sweet little hike with a beautiful lake at the bottom. Have you ever been to Seattle? If you haven't, you have to put it on your bucket list! (In fact, feel free to come do a retreat here. PLEASE! :)
