Camping Upstate

Camping and the great outdoors For the weekend of Fourth of July we took a drive upstate and went camping near Andes, NY. Camping has always been a great get away for us. It’s inexpensive, the drive isn’t long and we spend the entire time outdoors. If you want to know what camping gear we … READ MORE >>

Upstate Road Trip

Yay it’s Friday! Boy did this week fly! I tried to blog regularly the last few weeks but it just didn’t happen this week. Before I knew it, it was Thursday and I was like “oh shit”! Then I started to think, does it even really matter?! I’m not a blogger. I’m a maker! I … READ MORE >>

Coney Island

When the kids were here we took them to Coney Island and we all had a blast. They never rode on a roller coaster before and so of course, that was the first ride we went on. We will never forget their faces!! We bought the photos to prove but it’s too embarrassing to show … READ MORE >>

Camping Upstate, ny

We got in the car on Friday morning and headed off to the Catskills this past weekend and camped out for three days. It was beautiful. Billy’s kids are here and they’ve never been camping ever, so we took them on a little adventure. We went hiking, swimming, made a fire and had smores. We … READ MORE >>

sag harbor / montauk

So last friday was my birthday – 222. I’m officially 35, can’t believe it! aaaah I’m almost 40. I really don’t feel the age, even though I still get depressed when I think about the “number”. My body and mind feel youthful, like I’m still in my late 20’s … of course more knowledgeable about … READ MORE >>

I can’t believe it was just a week ago we were there. Jumping back into life pushed our week long vacation so far back into the past. I almost feel it’s time for another! Anyways, here’s part 1 of my trip to California. We started in San Francisco, drove down Highway 1, stopped off a … READ MORE >>

Saugerties, NY part 2

The Saugerties Lighthouse lies right in the middle of the Hudson River. Visiting is permitted by appointment only and we didn’t know that so we just hung around the outside. We met a group of 70 year old men kayaking down the Hudson, it’s amazing because they were going against the current. I wish I … READ MORE >>

Saugerties, NY Part 1

We drove up to Saugerties last weekend just to get away from the city. We’ve never been before but at first glance fell in love with the little town. It’s up and coming and not as commercialized as Woodstock. We spent all weekend dreaming of living the country life as we always do when visiting … READ MORE >>
