Photos from my Weekend: A Trip to Upstate NY

Have you entered the giveaway to win gift cards to Amazon, Etsy, and Starbucks yet?
Well, go do that now and come back, I'll wait...good? Good! On to the content!

For years I've been hearing about the wonder that is my sister-in-law Jackie's grandparent's home in upstate NY. The restaurant turned family home is situated in the mountains between Lake George and Lake Champlain and sits on hundreds of acres covered by woods and meadows alike. This past weekend I was fortunate enough to snag an invite to the family reunion hosted on their picturesque property. Needless to say, photos abound!

 
I could get used to this morning walk
 
Fun remnants from the restaurant days, and an early Jackie original!
 
Gorgeous memories fill the house
 
A quick trip to Middlebury, VT to tour the Woodchuck Cidery
 
The kind of woods to get lost in, and a brother navigating us very intently
 
Whenever you find yourself on a mountain top, you must make yourself a fairy crown
 
A photogenic family

I'm so happy I got the chance to have a weekend away in such a gorgeous place! Here's hoping I'm invited back :)

  5. Gorgeous photos! I love seeing travel photos from within the U.S.; too often I feel like we forget about America's beautiful landscapes in our hurry to see other countries.

  12. What a magical place upstate New York is. I grew up in upstate New York, just next to the always beautiful Woodstock. And your photos represent it so well.
