Tomorrow morning we’re jumping on a plane for New York! I’m so excited. It’s become a yearly tradition that we go the last two weeks of October because that is, hands down, the most beautiful time of year there. I plan our trip around peak foliage of course (cause the whole state of NY smells like apple cider this time of year). And we pack in all sorts of east coast fall activities that I remember doing as a kid like leaf piles, apple picking, cider donuts, puppet shows in Central Park, and hikes in the Adirondacks. This picture above is from 2 years ago. Beautiful, right? Well – actually we were on our way apple picking and my parents car broke down on the side of the road. Luckily there were leaf piles to play in while we waited for help. Oh, and I had my camera of course to kill some time so I snapped this photo above. See? Even crappy things are beautiful in east coast’s fall!
This year is going to be extra special because my sister, Celeste, and her two kids will be there, and I’ll get to meet my brother, Christian’s, new cute baby. Plus, I have two siblings, Becca and Spencer, who live in Manhattan so we’ll all be there except Katrina! You’ll see lots of her next week though on the blog- I’m excited to share with you some awesome photos from a Halloween shoot. I’m also doing a video shoot in NY with sisters in law Gabby and Jordan I’m excited to share as well soon! Follow along on our trip via instagram (@yestohoboken).
