A Quick Trip to Upstate NY
This weekend we made a quick trip to upstate NY to visit Tom’s parents at their house in the Catskills and help them with some projects around their home. The weekend’s tasks included tiling their laundry room and refreshing their front porch with a fresh coat of paint on the door (c/o Tom) and some new planters (c/o Joanna).
We are so lucky to have this house upstate to visit when we want a change of scenery! Whenever we go up to visit I try to find some new places for us to check out. On our last trip upstate, Joanna took Tom’s mom to nearby Hudson, NY to explore local shops and we found a great local farmers market. This trip, we went into Athens, checked out an awesome local wine shop and spent some time on the riverfront. Joanna also found an amazing plant nursery near their home to buy all of the flowers for around their home.
We ultimately would love to have a vacation home of our own upstate that we can visit on the weekends. The ultimate dream is to have an old farm that we can fix up!
