Without getting too deep, sometimes a fashion find seems to speak to you. It’s not just saying “buy me.” It’s saying “wear me and make me your own.” “Dare to step out of your comfort zone.” “Go ahead…strut your stuff.” And that’s exactly the inner dialogue this glam green velvet dress and I had. Well, that’s how I choose to remember it.
We have a log cabin nestled on 101 mountain acres in the Adirondacks. Dream come true? You bet ya. My husband Chris has been hiking up there since he was 16. I think it was on our second date that he suggested we go up and climb a 46er. Flash forward a few months later to a rainy, cold, almost gale like October, and we were on the way up Gothics — aka pretty damn scary. Chalk it up to being fit, foolish, feisty and 20-something but climb my first 46er I did. And after a hot shower and some craft beer, I fell in love with this most magical spot in the world. We’ve never looked back. Though we’ve kept our Keene Valley Real Estate agents busy for years…and years…as we searched for the perfect property.
