On Saturday, I mustered what strength I had left after a big night out at the ball, to pack and ready myself for a trip upstate to Rhinebeck and Millbrook. And what an incredible treat.... these two towns are not only picturesque, they are down-right stinkin' charming. From enjoying an evening with vino on the front porch watching kiddies trick or treat, to having a quiet dinner at a little french restaurant in town, to touring a local market and buying fresh hot apple cider and doughnuts (score!), I found myself becoming infatuated with small town life. The trek home on Sunday night was just plain painful... I could have stayed forever.
