Fall Foliage


Every time I go up to the Berkshires I realize how lucky I am to have an oasis outside of the city. Yes, I do have my parent’s house in Greenwich but when I really want to escape and unplug I head up to Queechy Lake, NY (about two hours north of NYC).



I had an amazing weekend up in the Berkshires. For the past few weekends my mom keeps saying, “it’s PEAK leaf weekend,” and every weekend after keeps getting better. The weather was gorgeous. And, yes, the leaves were spectacular.

Snapping some shots for the blog.

On Saturday we drove up and stopped off in Rhinebeck, NY for the Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival. My mom kept telling us it was a "fun festival" and left out the details...

My mom and my sister, Lulu.

View from my bed.So cozy!

Saturday night we had a great dinner in Great Barrington, MA and then went home to comfy beds and my mom even made a fire in our room. Sunday morning we ventured to Hudson, NY, had a great brunch and went antiquing. We stopped in a great gourmet tea shop and picked up some really interesting teas (pomegranate hibiscus green tea is my favorite). Back to NYC and the grind. I can’t wait to get up there again!
