this weekend could have not been more perfect (except, perhaps, just a smidgen warmer). on saturday we went on a little roadtrip of the hudson valley. i donned red lips, a chambray shirt and striped cardigan, just like a good blogger would do. all that was missing was my topknot. our first stop was golden harvest farms, an apple orchard and vodka distillery. yup, somehow those two go hand in hand. the farm store was full of cider donuts, muffins and pies, a good precursor to a little vodka tasting. there, we learned how to grow an apple in a vodka bottle and that i really, really, don't like vodka. the next stop was a little thrifting in hudson, then a wine tasting at hudson-chatham winery (our second time here, it did not disappoint, the wines are great), and finally, the cherry on top, a blizzard at dairy queen. it was such a wonderful day, helped along with the tunes of billy joel and ray lamontagne. saturday night we had some dinner with friends and used sunday to bake some eggs and recuperate from such a busy day. needless to say, i pretty much want to do the whole thing all over again next time i'm up there. but here's to another five days before the weekend, right?
