Happy New Year, guys! 2018 has been off to a very COLD start here in the Northeast, each day barely making it above single digits! For the last couple months, I've spent a lot of quality time with family and friends close to home. It's been such a nice (and definitely sleepier) change of pace than my usual race on the road.
I had the immense pleasure to stay at Scribner's Catskill Lodge in the Catskill Mountains a few weeks back, and the best part was that our trip started off with a snow day! My friend, Serena, and I spent the morning playing in the fresh powder before the journey down to the lodge. And with the chilly temps, it was hard for us to leave our room! We stayed in one of their queen lofts, which came complete with our own personal fireplace! We brought a tree and had our own version of Christmas morning during our stay. Lots of time spent by the many fires (the main one in the lodge and the toasty corner stoves in the restaurant tying for first place), complete with books from the library and a never ending supply of coffee kept us cozy warm and all smiles.
On our final morning, we filled our bellies with an incredibleeee brunch of pancakes, avocado toast, and scrambled eggs. The only thing that made it better was the picture perfect view of Hunter mountain from our table! Check out time was a somber event, it was definitely hard to leave this mountain hideaway behind! To book your own winter getaway at the lodge, head over to their site here . I would also be remiss without thanking Woolrich for gearing us in our holiday finest! They're having a sale on some of my favorite flannels right now, so head over to their site to stock up!
