SKYE FARM: Goin' to the country, gonna eat me a lotta peaches...

Who knew that the beginning of my grad-school endeavor would include a camping trip in the wilderness? We hiked, hugged, did some cheesy-team-building activities, and got to know each other intimately. Needless to say, I met some amazing people, had a blast, and am looking forward to the rest of the summer session!

Lake George


My Grad School Class (your's truly front and center)

...we even played with balloons.

...Sally the Salamander

Me, Fancy, and Karebear

..campfire roasted bananas with chocolate and marshmellows. Yum!

...Team Jacob, pre-rowing.


Best things to pack for a wilderness trip?

1. A water-proof, lined, and machine-washable windbreaker
(I wore my navy one from Forever 21 the whole time)

2. Lots of bug spray

3. Compfy shoes

4. Bananas, chocolate, and marshmellows for the campfire (whoever packed these for this trip was genius!)

Road trip to Maine....

Maine is gorgeous in the summer. Route 1 stretches from Southern to Northern Maine and includes a scenic drive filled with exits for beaches and seafood shacks. During undergrad it was a summer tradition of mine to venture up Route 1 to visit friends. With work & school I have been neglecting my annual road trip.

I attended my dear friend Am's wedding in Berwick. A lot of my sorority sisters were there and I had we had an awesome time being silly, reminiscing, and shakin' it on the dance floow.

After Berwick I went up to Augusta to meet up with some long-time girlfriends from undergrad. We went to a fabulous Mexican restaurant and enjoyed "wicked" potent margaritas. I even tried homemade pork carnitas for the first time. Fabulous!

I also saw one of my friend Anna and her husband Ken for the 1st time in almost 5 years...we watched horror movies, had fried scallops, and she cooked me a delicious pork-loin meal in her brand new home. She lives about 2 miles from this gorgeous beach off of Route 1 which is pictured above. Love it!

I took the last picture over the bay on my drive back to NY from Anna's house. I snapped it through the passenger window while crossing a bridge on Route 1. The sunrise so serene and leaves me feeling calm and nostalgic for the next time I visit...

Thanks to Anna & Ken, Ruth, Amanda, Megan, Sierra, Am, Katie, and the Michelles- it was great to see everyone!
