CAMP

Weekend Reading

{photo by me; you may remember it from here.}

Happy Friday.  We are up in Lake Placid this weekend, at the summer camp Stefan grew up going to.  It is set on an organic farm, and truly one of the most relaxing, special places I know.  This is our last weekend of travel for a while.  I’m soaking up the fresh air and time with friends, but a part of me is really looking forward to being home for a while when we get back to the city.  I’ve been offline for a few days now, and it feels amazing to unplug.  I hope you are able to do the same this weekend, even just the tiniest bit.  It’s something I don’t do enough, but so incredibly important.  I’ve been up here since Wednesday, so I’m way behind on blog reading… but here are a few things I loved from earlier in the week.

    I can’t think about Lake Placid without thinking about giant mutant alligators eating folks.

    So envious of you being on “mountain time” now; I adore the Adirondacks. Enjoy, and thanks so much for the mention! Xo

    Have a great weekend in Lake Placid. Loved Cheetah’s NYC postcards. Just got back from visiting my sister so it was nice to be reminded of the city :)

    Lake Placid sounds like a perfect getaway! Tanner and I have been making a point (well I’ve been making a point) to unplug on one day / night every weekend and it’s been so great for the two of us to spend that quality time together. Thank you for including my postcard post in your links, such a fun surprise!! x
