He proposed!

      We met in Madison, NJ almost 8 years ago, and we started dating almost immediately. Last week, during our five-day hiking adventure in the White Mountains, he proposed on top of Mount Madison. We reached the peak (5366 feet in the air) at 3:57 pm. The skies couldn’t have been clearer, and […] Read more…

More California fun!

Days lounging by the pool in the summertime with a good cocktail never gets old. I spent the day with a friend since our significant others were out golfing with the groom of the wedding we attended.

Apples, sweaters, and birthday wishes

The autumn air was crisper than a freshly dry-cleaned pleated skirt. The clear blue sky formed the perfect background for the orange, red, brown, and green leaves clinging on to the trees in the distance. Three cars, twelve people, and two hours later, we made it up the Hudson Valley to Dubois Farm to begin […] Read more…

Cliff Walkin’

  I took a long walk around the Cliff Walk with Tyler and his mom during my short stay in Newport. It’s one of those attractions that encourage me to travel within the US.

A date with Nature

Last Saturday, we woke up early, and got ready for an amazing adventure in the Hudson Valley. We took the Metro North to Beacon, less than two hours away from Manhattan for a good rendezvous with nature.
