Greetings!

Hi friends, family, strangers, and Internet stalkers! This is my first official blog entry, and I have to admit that I never thought I'd be a blogger, but I suppose it can't hurt to give it a shot. I'm new to the game but I look forward to updating this thing with my current projects, photographs, culinary adventures, and other tidbits of inspiration. :)

On that note, NY is having some fabulous summer weather to kick off the fall season. Last weekend my boyfriend and I spent some time upstate in Hudson Valley visiting Mohonk Mountain House, where I had my first rock scrambling experience. I go to the gym regularly and consider myself to be in fairly good shape, but this was a lot more physically intense than I expected. Also, it was completely terrifying as I have a fear of heights. In the end I'm glad I did it. The views were amazing and reaching the top was a huge accomplishment for me.
