Happy 5 years to the best husband I could ask for! This marriage, this life, is more than I ever dreamed of. I'd marry you 100 time over! I love you Stu Armstrong and I'm so excited for our anniversary weekend. #5yearsmarried#fingerlakes#honeymoonbestiesreunite
Last weekend was almost exactly what I was hoping for hiking wise.
I’m so grateful for my trip out to the PNW this year, and Arizona last year. It reminded me of what I had forgotten: how much I love hiking and being outside.
I forgot how much I love the walks through the woods, and the excursion and pride of getting yourself up thousands of feet of elevation. I’m a little sad I took such a long hiatus from something that is simultaneously great exercise and soothing for my soul. I’ve missed this.
So, to make up for it, I’m trying to go hike at least once a week/weekend (especially this time of year) and keep track of it all. This is hike 5/💯 from Buttermilk Falls state park in the Finger Lakes. #hikerbabes#hikerbabes100#happypeoplehike#fallhiking
First snow of the season in the hills of Penn Yan, NY! Just enough to coat the roof and the car windows! Time to start a fire 🔥 in the wood burning stove! Stay warm my friends!⛄️❄️ #fingerlakes#pennyan#snow#staywarm
Stop making excuses, believe in yourself, and know you're worth giving that 'thing' of yours a real chance, not in a year, a month, a week; not when you have enough money, meet the right person, or when the right door opens. Right Now. The world needs you to be awesome. So take a deep breath and go for it. - Alexis Jones, #IAmThatGirl
🕷Save the Date🕷 on Halloween from 1-3pm there will be complementary face painting, giveaways, a beverage, and more! There is nothing our artist can’t create so live it up and pop in on 10/31 for a little Halloween fun!
Much like Alex Cora I am digging deep into my (beer)bullpen and bringing out the heavy artillery. RED APPLE BOMBSHELL - Raspberry Hard Cider by @warhorsebrewing is a great change up to my usual IPA routine. Hard hitting, sweet, the right amount of tart, and clocking in at 7% ABV. This game has me in the edge of my seat, yet this SMACKER of a hard cider is helping me keep my cool. #LetsGoRedSox
It’s fall y’all. Please enjoy this photo of pretty leaf colors and Max in this adorable 13$ @targetstyle cat & jack vest I’m obsessed with. 🍁 •
@psr111975 convinced me to go “camping” in a “rustic” cabin with a toddler. It wasn’t terrible but it was a bit chilly. Max loves being outside playing with the leaves. I think he would have done that for hours. 🍂 🍁 🍃 •
Yesterday was this guy’s birthday and I missed posting one of my favorite pictures I shot of him this year. He is not only my brother but is referred to in my house as a “Super Uncle.” Happy Birthday @prestonpreynolds keep riding those waves 🌊🏄🏽♂️
This cold weather is making me long for warm. Check out these amazing Amish made slab wood planters I picked up for $7!! Located on a dirt road somewhere in the Wheeler area. Such a score if you can find the greenhouse. There are tons of great plants for cheap and baked goods...yes..baked goods! #plants#amish#fingerlakes#summer#upstateny
Totally digging the new packaging for the caffeinated beard oil! This stuff took a while to formulate but I it’s finally perfect! Rice Bran and jojoba oils keep it from being too greasy, coconut oil strengthens the hair, olive and hemp oil softens, and its caffeinated to help stimulate healthy, strong growth. Obsessed! Pick yours up today. Shop link in bio. And remember it always ships free!

Last weekend we spent a few days at the lovely @june_bug_lodge near Watkins Glen, NY... It. Was. Wonderful! 💖 Peaceful property, gorgeous tiny house, adorable rescued bird-friends, and the kindest owners. ✨ We will cherish the memories made here, the conversations we had with Matt & Courtney, and the reminder to live more simply. 🏠 Check out the JuneBug Lodge the next time you want to get away!
“Sip back & mallow out.” This is Random Company. It’s a Marshmallow Sweet Potato Ale from @cbcraftbrewers, and is an amber / brown hybrid ale. It’s full-bodied, a bit sweet, and has a mouth-watering aroma, with notes of brown sugar and caramel. This is a perfect fall beer! 🍂🍺
Calling all Ithaca friends!
Plus a public service announcement ⭐️ First, Ithaca Loves! We would love your help and company processing winter squash this Saturday, October 20th at Remembrance Farm. We can thank you in copious quantities of (halved!) winter squash, farm jokes as well as $11 an hour 🙌🏼 DM me for for info and thanks in advance for making my day ♥️ And now for your PSA!
How do you know when winter squash is ripe?
It’s always a bit of a mystery, a sweeping guess with a wide window of possibility, but Honeynut makes it easy.
Developed by @mazlabseeds, Honeynut bears a brilliant ‘ripeness indicator’ in its flesh, only turning a full, rich butterscotch when it’s flavor is truly at its finest.
If it’s on the vine, still with a tinge of green, leave it.
If it’s at the farmer’s market, still with a tinge of green, leave it.
If it’s gloriously butterscotch and no trace of green, eat it.
You won’t be disappointed ⭐️ Many thanks to the many hands who made Honeynut possible in this world and many thanks to the many hands that will process seeds with us on Saturday!
Also, an excerpt from our lunch conversation:
Me: Let them eat cake!
Matthew: Err, squash 🧡
