So I’m back in upstate New York right now, and life has been hectic and totally laid back at the same time here … is that possible? I’m here for two weddings, to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday and to get some stuff done for my sister’s upcoming bridal shower in August, so all of that is definitely hectic. But when I’m not busy running around, I’m pretty much hanging on the back porch as much as I possible can.
Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:
^^ A gorgeous Union Station the day before I left Denver.
^^ And an even more gorgeous Grand Central Station the day I arrived back in New York!
^^ My mom and I had to make a pit stop into Newburgh Vintage Emporium for some stuff, and can I just tell you how much I’m loving this place? If you happen to be in the Hudson Valley, and you like vintage goods, this place is a must-see.
^^ More Vintage Emporium prettiness.
^^ Saturday’s wedding took place on a rooftop overlooking the Albany skyline. Not too shabby for a fireworks view, eh?
^^ My sister and her fiancé — these two.
^^ Meeting my cousin’s baby for the first time was definitely a highlight of this trip, as well.
^^ Soon-to-be bro-in-law made me a delicious butternut squash risotto for dinner one night … yum!
^^ Lobster and crab roll at The River Grill in Newburgh.
^^ The Newburgh Waterfront, aka the glorious Hudson River.
Still left to do? A couple bridal shower errands, mom’s 60th birthday excursion (I’ll blog about that later) and another wedding in Tarrytown on Saturday.
Bis bald friends!
