Weekend Wanderings - Thanksgiving 2015

I had a beautiful long weekend for Thanksgiving. We took the train upstate on Wednesday afternoon, just as the sun was beginning to set over the river.

I didn't take any photos on Thanksgiving, because I was too busy enjoying the delicious food and the wonderful company of our family and friends, but I did get some nice snaps during our Black Friday hike. Cece and I have gone on quite a few November hikes over the years, and it was great to add Bull Mountain to our list this year! Roger and Owen joined us, and we all had a blast.

We stopped for a tasty lunch at Whistling Willie's in Cold Spring and drove around the town for a bit. It's even cuter than I remembered it being!

That evening, we headed to the Peekskill Brewery for what has become a bit of an annual tradition—reuniting with some old and dear friends from high school.

On Saturday, my mother wasn't feeling well, so we spent most of the day relaxing at home. I made my first ever spritz cookies, and they turned out really well!

Roger and I headed back home on Sunday, and I spent most of the afternoon doing some freelance work. That evening, we went to the Park Slope Co-op and started our membership! I'm really excited to have access to such great foods. Roger's going to be doing my shifts for a few months while things settle down here, and then I'll take over my shift in the spring. From everything I've heard, it's going to be a great experience, and Roger even brought home dried mangoes yesterday, so I feel like we're really official now!

I hope that if you celebrate, you had a beautiful Thanksgiving too!
