Upstate Livin'

I've gotten to spend a little time Upstate this summer... As you may know, The Catskills and Hudson Valley are one of my favorite escapes. Such a reprieve from the city and filled with so many good farm stands, hikes, and summer activities.

We often use Red Cottage to discover great upstate rentals and loved staying at Whale & Grove over the long July 4 weekend. Orchards, a fire pit, big red barns, and beautiful gardens made it the perfect getaway.

Some snaps of the inspiring space (via Red Cottage) & the accessories that I brought along:


And a few hot tips from our most recent visit:
