A weekend in the Berkshires (with Gertie!)

Spending a July weekend in the Berkshires has become one of my favorite summer traditions. My boyfriend’s family goes up every year, and it’s such a nice, relaxing weekend away from the city. The weather wasn’t great–overcast and rainy for most of the weekend–but we still squeezed in a canoe ride, a BBQ and a […]

Postcard from Monument Mountain

One of my favorite summers is the one that I spent in Colorado Springs the year before my senior of college: I interned at the Colorado Springs Gazette as a copy editor for the sports section. That meant that I worked the 4pm to midnight shift, diligently writing headlines and looking for grammatical errors while […]

We opted for a seaside escape this time: we stayed at the lovely Inn at Mystic, ate all of […]

The best of the Berkshires, via Instagram

Bold statement, but I think the single best thing that my boyfriend has introduced me to is the Berkshires. He’s a New York City native (such a rare breed!) who grew up on the Upper West Side, but spent summers at a lake house in the Berkshires (near Lakeville!). There’s something so delightful about being […]
