A week or so a go..or longer.or..whatever? (Time is liquid, man. It's summer!) I escaped from the rumbling trucks outside my window to ACRES and acres of greenness upstate with Marisa and Doree. Lady Retreat!
Oh, hi. GIANT POOL and 9 millionjillion blades of grass. SO in love with this house & property.
SO in love, in fact, that I tried to take selftimer photos? GOOD GRIEF. That shit takes HOURS to get right. Hats off to you bloggers who post those every day. That was a chore!
Here is a story of me, my dress, and the fantastic tiny jewel of a guesthouse.
SO CUTE. It fits just a bed and a dresser. Soooo good.
I thought I was brave enough to sleep out there alone, turns out I'm a total chicken.
Thankfully, Doree had no probs letting me crash with her in the main house.
How many ways can I say I loved this house?
Doree's assistant Lee, and the vintage desk in the living room- IDENTICAL to the one in MY LIVING ROOM!!! (I found mine set out for trash on the street in midtown in 2002. I sat on it- in the winter- for about 3 hours until my Dad could leave work with his car and come get me. LUNATIC!)
One of the multiple porches aka our remote office.
I brought this dress with me for express interest of being a Lady of the Canyon (obvi not in the Canyon, in New York State, but Lady of the State doesn't exactly have the same ring that I am looking for).
It was a Beacon's Closet dreamfind that I spied while I was doing some shopping for MNDR.
It was floor length which, in theory is dreamy, but in reality, on a midge with a NOT SMALL chest..is nightmarish.
I hacked it, doy.
Please observe these sleeves.
If I ever find myself in a postion in which I need to smuggle, say, Casaba melons, I AM IN LUCK.
My parents send every summer in Greece (obvs, ever seen my last name?) and every summer my sister and I put in an order for handmade sandals from the motherland.
These are the ones I wear the most, they seem the least disciple-y.
We made dinners! Pasta by Meltzer, bruschetta by me. Doree made these amazing sweet potato tacos our first night.
I MADE A PIE!!! Peaches and blueberries. It was DELCIOUS.
We felt like Fresh Air Fund kids out there.
Maris and I went for a walk..
And this DEER totally FOLLOWED US. WHAT? THAT HAPPENS?
We were TERRIFIED. We were like..Ohmigod it is LOOKING AT US. Is it going to CHARGE? Will we die? WIll it EAT US? AHHHHHHH!!!!
If Hunter had come along, I never would have left.
I need a house.
