This past weekend, I had the pleasure of going home and taking a break from the busyness of life. Autumn is the perfect time make time to relax. Its a time for warm sweaters, big hugs, and a mug full of warm chai. It’s a time for apple orchards, hayrides, and fall leaves. Autumn is a time for family dinners and weekend getaways. And I did just that.
Life can get extremely stressful, and it’s okay to take a break every once and while to simply soak up the little things you miss while away at school. I missed New York country air, upstate chicken wings, real crisp apples and my mom’s applesauce. I missed cuddly puppies, my own queen sized bed and stepping outside to a vast expanse of fields and cows. The city is an amazing place immersed in culture and art however, the chaos of it all had the small town girl inside me longing for silent nights.
Weekend getaways are my new favorite.
So as the weather gets colder and the leaves change color soak up the last of your vacation day or even play a little hooky to take a weekend getaway.
