Fall Festival Fun- Rhinebeck and SAFF!

One thing I love most about the Fall is festival season!! The crunchy leaves, the crisp air and everyone wearing their best woolies! This year brought me back to my favorite hometown festival, SAFF, and was my first time at the all famed Rhinebeck!

On a 38th Birthday and 5th Anniversaries

I’m not one to post overly personal life posts, but I’ve been thinking a lot about things as I approach my 38th birthday and have 2 5 year anniversaries this year.  I’m so lucky and here, a few days before my birthday,  I find how important it is to acknowledge.
