So happy belated Father's Day! For all the fathers, father figures, soon-to-be fathers, and yes, even fathers of pets, I hope it was a lovely day for you this past weekend. I enjoyed a day with my boyfriend and our wonder pup, Watson, upstate New York visiting a few amazing places I highly recommend:
The Rail Trail in New Paltz
Robibero Vineyards (a pet-friendly winery
The Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park -- also pet-friendly
And finally finishing off the day eating at a pet-friendly restaurant, Gigi
, in Rhinebeck with some lovely outdoor seating and delicious Mediterranean fare made exclusively from local farms.
Definitely a fun day that we all enjoyed -- and an itinerary I recommend for anyone visiting the Hudson Valley area!
Also, as I strongly believe that single days like Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Valentine's Day should really be celebrated everyday, here are some handmade gifts your dad would enjoy all year-round (in case you're running a little behind like me ;).
Warm wishes to all the dads out there -- and a huge hug to my dad!! You're the best and thank you for all that you do.
