A Day in Hudson Valley

Hi Loves! Yesterday Andy and I celebrated our two year anniversary.  We both decided to take the day off and do a little day trip to Hudson Valley…close but yet far from home.  It’s been on my list to check out the Hudson Valley area, especially in the fall since it’s known for it’s gorgeous foliage.

I did a little research and found that there is the longest pedestrian bridge in the world right in Poughkeepsie!  I also found a bunch of wineries in the area that looked beautiful.  So we set out to do just that….walk a little, take in the views, and sip some wine among the beautiful scenery.

We thought this would be perfect, since we do have a little fur child to worry about now.  Everything was dog friendly which was perfect!

Here is a re-cap in pictures of our day in Hudson Valley.

Rudy still isn’t so sure about long car rides.


The Walkway Over the Hudson was recently built and starts in Poughkeepsie.  There is a parking lot right at the entrance making it easily accessible.


It was a gorgeous day!  Even though we may have been a couple of weeks late the foliage was still stunning! Continue reading

Take Me Back Tuesday – Boston

A big part of me will always be in Boston.  The day I graduated from college (the University of Massachusetts, Amherst) I decided to pack up my apartment and move to Beantown!  I spent the past four years there from 2009 to 2013.

I started my career in Boston, had what I call my “first adult relationship” in Boston, started practicing and found my love of yoga in Boston, and navigated the ups and downs of my early 20’s in Boston.  It’s been quite the transitional year moving back to Connecticut.  While I know it was the right choice there are just some things about Boston that I will always miss!

10 Things I Miss About Boston

Fenway Park – The fans, the sunsets, the beer, and the singing.

The T – Never thought I would say that! But I miss being able to hop on the train to go to the store or dinner, and all of the “interesting” people you encounter.

Newbury Street – What a beautiful street lined with brownstones and has great shopping, food, and people watching.

The North End / Waterfront – My first company was in this neighborhood.  The North End is the “Little Italy” of Boston with fantastic restaurants and some great Italian American culture.  It also sits right next to the waterfront which is just a beatiful place bustling with tourists.

Running around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir – I lived close to the reservoir most of my years in Boston.  It was about a mile and a half around, a perfect place to run, and had some great sunsets.

Hip Hop Yoga – My very first yoga class was at Sweat & Soul yoga to try out Hip Hop yoga.  It’s not what you think it is!  It’s just vinyasa flow to loud music and so, so much fun!  This picture was at a hip hop yoga event near Copley Square hosted by Lululemon.

I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend four years of my life in one of the best cities in the world!
