There's so much to love about The Abbey Inn & Spa from it's history to its scenic hilltop location in Peekskill, New York. I discovered The Abbey while doing a thorough online search of the lower Hudson Valley for my 2023 wedding venue and immediately knew I had to visit. Not long after, I arrived to The Abbey with my fiancé and parents in tow for a quaint summer weekend at this gorgeous boutique-style hotel. From a distance, you can see how it sits high above the Hudson River.
I still owe you guys the full video from of our engagement. It's coming soon, I promise! What I can drop now as far as an update on “us” is that we took our first little getaway since committing to one another as fiancés.
Turning 43 isn’t as scary as having a birthday in a snowstorm, which is why I chose to head west to Scottsdale Arizona for my birthday in January. I really can’t remember having a birthday in New York when it didn’t snow, sleet or hail. Every January, I’m prepared for it. But this year played out differently, thank God! I heard wonderful things about Four Seasons Scottsdale so my little family and I left New York City in the icy dust to experience a short retreat in the desert.
By now you know that Frida, my 6 pound chihuahua, goes everywhere with me! Literally EVERYWHERE! We're going on two years of being inseparable and quite frankly I can't imagine going on vacation without her. So over the past (almost) 2 years, I've had to figure out trips that would also accommodate and most importantly welcome Frida.

That’s me, on the hunt for my iPhone, lost somewhere at the Art Omi sculpture park in Ghent, NY. First of all, you must go see this place. It’s a fantastic visual experience on-foot and it’s dog-friendly. As you can see, Frida doggy was there too. I haven't been to many sculpture parks in my life but so far this one ranks at the top.
