On Monday a few of my girlfriends and I made a quick road trip out of the city to our friend’s house in Sherman, CT. It was a fabulous day filled with the warmth of good friends, much needed laughter, relaxation and of course a little bit of wine and food =) We had fun cruising around Lake Candlewood, cooling off in the water and enjoying the beautiful countryside on the stunning grounds of The White Silo Farm & Winery. It was a fabulous escape from the city and a spectacular day with cherished friends. A big thank you to Rena, for her incredible hospitality xox. Here are the pics from the day, hope you enjoy them. Happy Olympic Wednesday my friends 😉

This past weekend we decided that we wanted a little change of pace and scenery and embarked on a little day trip outside of NYC.  After conversing with some old time New Yorkers and checking out the MTA website our decision was made and we planned our trip to South Norwalk, Connecticut. We started off the day by having a delicious brunch at Pershing Square (just outside of Grand Central Station) and then we headed on over to the train station to catch our train to South Norwalk. After a quick one hour trip we arrived at the quaint waterfront town and walked to the Maritime Aquarium. As a family we had a blast exploring the aquarium and watching the IMAX movie on Sharks. Before heading back to the city we ate dinner at a very cool local Brewhouse pub. The trip was entirely stress free and enjoyable. A perfect escape and some much needed family time. I am already on the lookout for our next family adventure!
