Yeah, it's been an eternity. Life seems to get busier every year, usually with the wrong kind of stuff. But another year in Rhinebeck at the New York State Sheep & Wool Festival happened this past weekend and, as always, it made me wish I had more time with my amazing friends and doing the things I love.
I got to spend the Thursday before Rhinebeck with my favorite Canadian and Rhinewife, Erica, gallivanting around Salem. We shopped, we bought rocks, we hunted miniature crabs by the water, and, best of all, we sat and did nothing while chatting and drinking good lattes. Later that evening we met up with Stacie & Dale for insane amounts of sushi and a scorpion bowl. The weekend was off to a great start!

Rhinebeck itself was the usual blur of awesome people, more laughter than can possibly be legal, lots of crazy knitwear (good and bad), and beautiful upstate New York fall weather and scenery.

Always an amazing weekend and always tough saying goodbye. But there's always next year and we've already got the house booked (thanks, Heather)!
