A Weekend in Hudson

Way back on the weekend of August 26th, we headed to Hudson to spend the weekend with two of my closest friends from Sarah Lawrence and their families. The town is super cute, and you can get there relatively quickly on the Amtrak.

On Friday, we wandered around the town, which is adorable, if pricey. We stopped in at a really gorgeous antique store that had some incredible modernist furniture, and then stopped at a tea and chocolate store for some refreshments. We also saw Gaby Hoffmann, star of Now and Then, perhaps the most-beloved film of my childhood.

Other than the one foray into town and a quick trip to Olana Castle, we mostly stayed inside at the house we rented, which was wonderful. It was a chance to really catch up and bond with some babies. We also had a ton of really delicious homegrilled dinners!

Obviously delighted to see an upping stone in New York!

On Saturday, Sarah, Matty, Roger and I all checked out Olana Castle, which was pretty incredible. I hadn't been since I was a little kid, so it was really fun to go back and check it out. The views were stunning and I can see why an artist would build a home here. If you go to Olana, I would definitely pack a picnic lunch and eat it on the grounds, which were really gorgeous.

On Sunday morning, we all enjoyed one last breakfast together before hitting the road. Roger and I made our way back to my parents' house to spend some more time with my sister and do a bit more packing for my parents' move.

I'm so glad we got to spend the weekend with all these incredible people and their wonderful babies. We're all so busy that we don't often get a chance to see each other, and so setting aside a full weekend to just enjoy being together was really powerful, especially right before we moved. I can't wait to do it again next year!
