Snapshots // The first signs of fall

This year, the end of summer and beginning of fall have been perfect. I feel like I’m so immersed in fall activities and have been really active with my friends and family, planning seasonal events that always mark the changing of the seasons and the beginning of autumn. I’d thought I’d share some snapshots of my fall so far, and show you guys what I’ve been up to lately!

Cruisin’ around NYC

I went on a booze cruise around New York City for a friend’s birthday. I always love this route around the city and never get tired of these views!

Some Summer Highlights

Last. Day. Of August. [Got that summertime sadness… 😉 ]

This month I’ve been lax with my posting because life has been busy, in a lot of good ways. In August I think we all try to squeeze in as much summer as we possibly can before it’s all over, and this month was no different for me.

August was such a short month: I started a new job writing lifestyle and editing for a site called Popcrunch, and I took all the time I could to spend time with friends, go to the beach, eat a LOT of ice cream, enjoy these summer nights, and do new things.

There’s this hiking trail in Peekskill, NY that my friends and I did this month, and it was basically climbing up the side of a mountain that opened up into this amazing view. Here are some pictures of the view from the top of the mountain:

And then a few days ago my sister and I went to the New York Renaissance Faire like we do every year! I absolutely adore the Ren Faire and happily indulge my dorkiness and my love for old-fashioned dresses.


Highlight: when I accidentally hit a bull’s eye during archery! I had an amazing Katniss moment and my sister caught it on camera.

That is the face of someone who will never hit a bull’s eye again in her life.

With a trip to San Francisco, a new job, and a lot of time spent with friends, this summer has been all I wanted it to be. How has your summer been? Have you done anything cool/fun/exciting?
