Pumpkins, Bats & Witch's Hats
michelle and i had lots of fun today,
baking and decorating these little guys.
we added some brandy to our sugar cookie dough,
which gave it a nice autumny orange color
(as well as some spice.)
Fall Adventures Upstate
a few weeks ago, we saw peak foliage in new hampshire.
i couldn't believe we were so lucky as to hit it again last weekend in new paltz.
all of the obligatory fall activities were extra fun with nice weather and a nice pup.
we even met some goats.
A Rustic Barn in New Paltz
last weekend we rented our apartment out on airbnb and
booked a stay at
this little barn
, right outside of
new paltz, ny
the barn was built in the 1800's, and has been meticulously redone,
but still has all of its vintage charm. a wood burning stove, clawfoot tub,
and whitewashed lofted ceilings set the scene. behind the barn, we had some fun
exploring an enchanting little pond, which we were told was built by some beavers
and which butted up against a century-old stone wall.
spotted: perfection. in the form of a fancy party bus.
is a 1966 routemaster, converted to become the ultimate mobile
dining and drinking stage.
who wants to go to london to have a party?

for alert and photos.
has some great "before" shots from the renovation)
John Rand Cabin at Dartmouth
for the third year in a row, sebastian and i spent the first weekend of october
in one of the amazing
dartmouth outing club's white mountain cabins
nestled in a setting of mossy rocks, babbling brooks
and spectacular rainbow colored trees.
a bit of rain made for even brighter hues,
and poppy found some apples to fetch and munch on.
we brought some friends, played board games
and cooked some stuffing and mashed potatoes.
and just like that it became fall.
Molly & Anirudh's Wedding
the most colorful, celebratory wedding that we went to this summer has to
have been molly and anirudh's, set on the grounds of molly's beautiful
childhood home in barrington, rhode island.
the ceremony was indian traditional and charming, and the reception was
the sort of party you'd expect when jared is behind the turn table.
the best part? each of us took home a bamboo flute
which was lovingly handmade by molly's father
who cut the bamboo from his own garden
congratulations molly and anirudh!
