Birthday Trip

At some point you realize experiences are more valuable than objects. That's why, for my birthday last year, I suggested a weekend stay at the fabulous TWA Hotel in lieu of a tangible gift.

This year I'm following the same path and taking Robin to Hudson, NY -- the chic-ist town north of Manhattan. Most inhabitants and store-owners there are originally from the City. Vogue magazine -- VOGUE, of all magazines -- just published an article saying Hudson is the place to go during the pandemic. The town closes main street to cars on weekends and creates a pedestrian paradise. 

Since my birthday is next Tuesday we're leaving Friday for the weekend. Saturday is Halloween so bopping around then should be a blast.

Have a happy holiday!


  1. Sounds like you're in for a real birthday treat. I dropped you a few things in the mail, so hopefully you'll come home to some birthday goodies. (Because let's be real, it is still nice to get a little something on your birthday)

  2. Happy Birthday, Ally! What a lovely place to go to! I hope you have a blast!

  3. Happy Birthday sweetie! Enjoy your holiday weekend in such a cool place. You do know how to treat yourself well ;-)

  4. Oh my gosh this sounds like it's going to be a wonderful trip. Have so much fun and happy early birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday, Ally! I'm glad to hear you are celebrating in style! Vogue, no less! xxx

  6. Happy birthday my lovely! I hope you have had a beautiful time!x

  7. Happiest birthday season wishes, my dear friend. I am with you through and through when it comes to experiences over material items. I really started to feel that shift a few years ago and, happily, it has only intensified since.

    May the coming year of your life be filled with wellness and joy, great times, ample reasons to smile, and no shortage of the things and places that make your heart gleeful.
