In honor of female friendship: my favorite lady dates

In honor of Galentine’s Day: without a doubt, one of the things I value most in my life are my female friendships.

A weekend in the Catskills

The true changing of the seasons is probably the #1 thing that I appreciate the most living on the East Coast: there’s nothing like the incredible pop of colors blooming after a long gray winter or the turning of the leaves when the temperatures start to drop. When spring hits, I try to go to […]
