5 outdoor fall activities for you & your dog

#5 Doga

Whether you’re an experienced yogi or you’ve skipped out so far, fall is the perfect time to get outdoors and stretch with your pup. Dogs love being a part of our activities, and Doga is a wonderful way to bond with your pet. You’ll help your dog get into various positions, and it has health benefits for dogs as well as humans! Doga can also include a simple massage.

The best thing about doing yoga together outdoors? If your pet wants to wander off for a bit to play on their own, you’ll have time for a sun salutation–your dog can be as involved as they’d like, or just enjoy the autumn sunshine. Look for an outdoor Doga class in your area, or read up on it and give it a try on your own.

 

#4 Corn Maze

Dogs get excited about everything, and bringing your pup along to the corn maze will renew your enthusiasm for this fall tradition. Find dog-friendly corn mazes in your area, and get familiar with their rules. Your dog must be well-behaved and leashed, and as always, you’ll need to bring poop bags to clean up after your pet.

Once you’re there, let your pup take the lead and see where you end up! Even if they aren’t able to lead you to the exit, they’ll enjoy every step of the adventure.

 

#3 Camping

Fall camping has endless upsides: No crowds, it’s not too hot, and the views are incredible. Bring your dog along for an unforgettable weekend. You’ll stay active getting lots of playtime, and take amazing photos of your time in the wild.

Smart, well-trained dogs do best on extended outdoor adventures. If you’re backpacking, you can also get a pack for your pup to carry some of their own food. Your dog will love being able to help!

 

#2 Trail Running

 

trail runs

There’s no better time to hit the trails than crisp fall mornings. Lace up your trail running shoes and invite your pup to join you. As you take in the changing leaves, your pet will get an amazing workout, and their enthusiasm will be infectious. Trail runs offer more variety for both of you, and dogs especially love getting away from the concrete jungle.

If you’re running in a thorny area, make sure you both have adequate foot protection. Check your pet’s paws before and after the run, and look for trails that are safe for both of you. Some trails allow dogs only when on-leash, while others restrict all dogs. If you want to let your dog off-leash, be sure they’re well-trained, and look for a local trail that welcomes off-leash dogs.

 

#1 Leaf-Pile Playtime

 

leaves.jpg

Rake up a big pile of leaves, jump in, and play! Your dog will be thrilled at the opportunity to make such a delightful mess. What could be better?

Nana takes Woodstock!

Listening now…

 

I try to get to Woodstock as often as I can. We were just there for Frankie’s birthday this August!

 

My nana reached out to me asking to go to Woodstock in September, so off we went!

 

We started off our day viewing a Woodstock pupper in a backpack…

 

IMG_5001IMG_5002IMG_5003

That was quite the sight.

 

Nana stopped and smelled the flowers along the way quite a bit.

Hey Joshua’s Cafe– we are huge fans!! 

 

There was stopping to pet puppers too…

 

 

And of course there was shopping!

 

Nana’s favorite stores included:

The drum circle was also going on…

(The thing I love most about nana is that she is always down for anything!)

 

IMG_5051IMG_5050IMG_5053IMG_5054

 

I got a pair of new sunglasses that I had to show off…(from Jean Turmo)

But the best part of all was that I got to spend a day with my nana in a place that I love!

August Favorites

Listening now…

 

Glass Animals is in the soundtrack for Atypical a lot and I started to really love them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

But how the hell is it August already? P.S. as much as I love fall, I am not ready yet!

 

Atypical on Netflix:

 

 

 

Mama and I started watching Atypical on Netflix and loved it, we finished the season in a few days. There are not that many episodes, but they did leave the last one on a cliff hanger so I am thinking there is definitely going to be another season!

The show is about Sam, an Autistic teenager, and his family. Sam loves penguins and wants to fall in love. He is hilarious and the show does a really amazing job of making you feel his emotions and struggle to understand things that many of us take for granted. Things like being able to recognize other people’s emotions and how your words affect them. Things like being able to be in a room with loud music and lots of lights without having to run out covering your ears. Things like being able to form normal relationships. What is normal anyway, am I right?

I highly recommend this show to anyone! You will feel a lot when you watch it and you will laugh a lot, too.

Also, the soundtrack is really awesome too! See above  : )

 

Enjoying the last days of the summer…

While also getting excited for fall…

 

 

 

 

I’m not ready yet. I don’t know how or why the winter lasts so long, while summer flies by. It did feel like summer started a bit earlier for us, though, since we went to Greece in May. The weather over there felt like it was in the 80s because of the strong sun and having that trip of a life time made this summer one I will never forget.

At a certain point in August I am usually ready for fall. This year I am not there yet….but it’s okay. When I start to think about it we have a lot to look forward to! Like the new Stranger Things season and all the other wonderful aspects of fall. But that’s another post!

 

New games.

 

I don’t game a lot at all in the summer, I am outside enjoying the weather! Something I do enjoy about it getting colder is that you have more inside time to enjoy your inside hobbies. One of those for me is gaming! After all, that’s why I have a Gaming section on my blog.

August has brought a few really great changes to the gaming world! (At least for me, hehe)

August 31st I will be playing Life is Strange 2: Before the Storm.

 

strange.jpg

Life is Strange is the game( along with Gone Home)  that made me really love interactive story exploration type games. I can’t wait!

 

Yesterday, they finally released that Sims 4 Cats and Dogs is coming out in November! November 10th, to be exact. If you are a Sims fan, this has been a long time coming!

 

 

 

The thing I am most excited for is that you can open your own Veterinary clinic! I cannot wait.

 

My skin care routine.

Thanks mom for reminding me of how important it is to keep your skin healthy- I often get lazy and manage to skip washing my makeup off. Bad, I know!

But my mom got me this miracle Garnier cleansing water, which is so gentle and easy to wash it all off.

 

garnier.jpg

I love it! Along with these new BB creams she got me from Sephora, my skin has been looking and feeling nice lately.  I like BB cream because it has everything in 1- a little bit of color, makeup, and sunscreen. I started using it because my skin was too dry to wear makeup and it really helps. Each one has a different purpose for the skin and so far my favorite is the  “Complex pore care.”

How has your August been? Are you ready for fall?!

 

#Monday motivation

Listening now…

 

Happy Monday!

 

 

 

 

 

I am writing this post for motivation for you guys and for motivation for myself.

Honestly guys, today was just one of those “blah” days at work- lots of boring trainings online for a new program I am working for with my job.

A little uninspiring, to say the least.

I am trying not to let it get to me so instead….I blog. I will blog about inspiration when I am feeling uninspired and I will blog about motivation when I am feeling unmotivated.

Weekend Roundup

Listening now…

 

Friday night Frankie and I went to a summer concert series on the water and one of our favorite bars that has a corn hole and a fire pit. There were two separate concerts- this one down below and a Pink Floyd tribute band that was also really good!

I love this bar because you feel like you are sitting under a huge willow tree, which reminds me of my childhood. My nana’s yard had this huge willow tree we used to climb all day in the summer! Between this, the fire pit, and the lights lighting the path it has a really cozy feel to it.

Saturday I went to a wine, chocolate, and strawberries festival with my friends- a girl’s dream come true! #Hudsonvalleywinery

If you want to check them out- this is them!

I ended up buying the Spiced apple wine which is amazing and will be wonderful in fall warmed up!

20 somethings guide to an indecisive mind

Listening now…

 

 

I am obsessed with Willow Smith right now. And this song especially. Don’t be indecisive about hitting the play button…

 

decision.jpg

 

It’s time for another 20 somethings guide! This one kind of related to my 20 somethings guide to an anxious mind post.

I feel like the 2 are intertwined here. The world has so many options.  This is great but also terrifying. It can become a cycle of indecisiveness, leading to anxiety, and anxiety leading to indecisiveness. And exhaustion!

 

 

 

I struggle with this a lot lately so I felt the need to write from what I have experienced myself. I am not saying I have overcome this and this may be something that always plagues us as humans, naturally, who crave perfection. So I thought I would create a guide because what else do I do when I am going through something- help others…and pretend to know what I am doing!

 

Start somewhere. 

 

 

Take the first step, through the insecurity and indecision.  “Feel the fear and do it anyway.”

Take that class even if you are not sure if you want to do that for the rest of your life. Realize that you don’t even have to finish that degree just because you started. Those classes could still contribute to you getting your dream job. It’s okay to change your mind once you are “in” something and move onto something else.  In my opinion, this is way better than sitting around thinking about starting something and remaining stagnant. Growth is moving forward, in spite of your mind shouting “what if’s” at you. Better yet, what if you don’t start? Usually that is a worse outcome in our minds. (And IRL.)

 

Stop being commitment phobic and fearful of making a mistake. 

 

 

While sitting here trying to think about why it may be that we are indecisive, the thought came to my mind that we are afraid to commit and that we are fearful of mistakes. The 2 are also intertwined. Us humans are commitment phobes. What are mistakes, anyway? They translate into life experience….necessary, raw, and real life experience.

 

You can make decisions without being impulsive. 

 

 

What I mean by this is- say you are thinking about exploring a new career but don’t want to leave your good job immediately for something you are unsure about. You can take a class after work or around your schedule to see if it’s something you would like first, before jumping all the way in. You can keep your safety net close by while you explore thing “unsafe” and “scary” new possibility. Also I love the quote, “Don’t make a permanent decision on a temporary feeling. ”

 

Find yourself and you will (hopefully) find your decision

 

 

Journal, volunteer, meditate. Work on yourself and try not to focus on the pressure of this decision so much and through these things, you may end up actually coming to one.

 

Even if the decision ends up ultimately being something different than what you originally decided, you still learned something from it. Those classes you took were not a waste and can be applied elsewhere. That thing you did may have been what you needed to do in that moment at that time.

 

Trust your instinct….Even if the path is not “clear,” trust that it will lead somewhere. 

 
And it does not have to look clear to anyone else, either. As long as you trust that the decision will eventually lead you to where you want to be, that’s all that matters.

 

“I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.”
― Hermann Hesse, Demian. Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

 

 

Currently in July

Listening now…

 

This song has been stuck in my head lately. The beginning is sad but it gets happier… I think it’s good that songs like this are raising mental health awareness. I encourage you to give it a listen! That number the song is named after is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number. I have never struggled with this personally but truly feel for those who do. This is for a friend who reached out to me last week who was struggling…

 

 

 

 

 

 

It has been awhile since I have done a “Currently” post- since March, to be exact! Looking at those snow pictures is crazy because it does not feel that long ago at all that that was outside! This year is flying by. How is it July already?!?

I loved posting about my Greece trip, and I still may do one part, but I was too excited to get back to my normal blogging routine.

 

 

Currently celebrating…

Summer time (my favorite time ever) is in full swing and I am just celebrating sunshine and swimming as much as I can.

How was your July 4th?

Mine was filled with a puppy, ice cream, and swimming at a water park!

 

puppy 2puppy 3puppy 1

This is my cousin’s new puppy Lucky, who is a Scottie poo. I love himmmmm! We went out for ice cream and he was pretty excited.

 

We had a bit of an early July 4th celebration with the family and mom brought out this amazing surprise.

Has anyone else ever had the Friendly’s watermelon cake? It’s lemon and watermelon sherbert with chocolate chip “seeds.”

 

It’s the best.thing.in.the.world.

watermelon cake.jpg

While writing this post I actually remembered we had leftovers in the fridge so I had some more…

 

July 4th week was not a good eating week for me at all, lol! But I did go to my spin class.

I have still been keeping up with my regular gym routine every week and spin class has been the most beneficial exercise for me that I have ever tried in terms of seeing results! I spin and then I go in the sauna and it is very therapeutic. Often I regret my decision to go within 5 minutes of class when I feel like dying, but I never once regret actually going once it’s done.

Currently doing…

 

On my days off, we have been hanging out at our favorite lake.

 

lake 1lake 2lake 3

There needs to be way more days like this….not working but swimming and laying in the sunshine! =D

This summer I definitely plan on exploring new swim areas though and have a few on my list.

The other thing I have been busy “doing” is working my new reception job at the animal hospital. I took this job to figure out if I wanted to go back to school for Vet Tech, which I had previously started. I really like the job itself and enjoy being around all of the puppers and doggos, but ultimately don’t think I want to be a Vet Tech.

I’m trying to focus on what I enjoy doing and am good at, which is blogging. I would love to do something creative, like this, that also integrates creativity for a cause- like working with animal organizations. I still have a passion for nonprofits (my other job) and I am going to take some Communications and Media classes this fall so that will be fun!

 

Currently loving…

 

I decided to stop into Burlington Coat Factory the other day on a whim.

I am so glad I did! I found these super cute “Bobs for Dogs” by Sketchers brand shoes. 

Every pair you buy goes to benefit the Best Friends Animal Society. They have a ton of cute designs on their site and now I want more of them!

 

They are also insanely comfortable with memory foam.

 

Another thing I am loving lately is this bathing suit that I got at Marshalls. I love the cut out side trend in one pieces right now and it is really flattering!

I hope you are all having a fabulous July and summer!

 

Thanks for reading!  XOXO

Stories of Santorini…Part 4: Food!

Listening now…

 

First off I wanted to say thank you for bringing us up to 700 followers!!

 

 

I am so incredibly humbled and every time I reach another mile stone it makes me want to focus on this even more and more. This is really my little sanctuary and I am so thankful for it. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I blogged about my 500 followers milestone!

 

So, what better way to celebrate big things than food?! In Greece they definitely celebrate their food…

Greek frappes were an every day occurrence for us. #Caffeine

Speaking of food….it’s a good thing there are a million steps in Santorini. Walking up the side of those caldera cliffs isn’t easy, but oh so worth it. We managed to both come home actually weighing less than before we left! We counted 110 steps to walk up and down from our hotel every day.

 

Here is a list of our favorite places that we were lucky enough to wine and dine at on our trip:

 

Let’s start with Gyros. All day every day.

We thought our festival gyros at home were good until we tried them in Greece. They always put french fries on their gyros and paprika! Also in Greece I noticed they do other meat besides lamb, which makes me think that the lamb Gyro is the Americanized version.

We went to Lucky’s Souvlakis and we ended up going there like once a day. Lol. When in Greece!

 

food 1.jpgluckys.jpg

 

Heliotopos Hotel Restaurant and Wine Bar

 

We ate at our hotel, Heliotopos, a few nights and that was amazing. It doesn’t get much better than eating out on the Terrace overlooking the sunset.

 

helio.jpg

My wonderful mama sent us wine and a cheese plate! Heaven….

food 2drinks.jpgfood 3

wine bar.jpg

This is where we had breakfast every morning- buffet style complete with fresh fruit, homemade jams and Greek pastries. 

 

Sunset in Ammoudi Bay

 

We were lucky enough to get to eat at Sunset Ammoudi twice- the first time for actual dinner and the seconds for appetizers and wine as we watched the sunset.

 

ammoudi.jpg

 

To get down to the restaurant, you have to walk the  Oia to Ammoudi Bay  steps, which I wrote about in my Santorini Bucket List. 

 

steps .jpgammoudi.jpgammoud wineammoudi wine 2ammoudi 2.jpg

 

As you can see, your table is literally on the edge of the Bay. The wine bucket was perched on the side of the edge of the table only held up by a metal piece. It was such a unique experience!

What made it even more unique was when we heard a splash and looked over to see a man swimming in the water.  (I wish I got a picture of that!) Now, Greek water in May is freezing on even a hot and sunny day. Our waiter told us “Oh yes, that is our staff- he jumps into the water to grab people’s things when they drop them from their tables.”

Talk about Greek hospitality.

 

wine.jpgwine and boat.jpg

 

I am really not a fish person. But the waiter said, ” If you don’t like it I promise I will bring you something else and offer my sincerest apologies.” He said he would bring me the least “fishy” tasting fish they had.

I believe this was a Mackerel and it was actually good- although I would not order it myself.

Our waiter stood at our table for a good while picking out every single bone and explaining about the fish to us.

Metaxy Mas- Exo Gonia, Santorini

 

This was our absolute favorite restaurant of the entire trip.

metaxy

The view outside of Metaxy Mas.

 

When you sit down you are greeted warmly with a complimentary dish of cheese, olives, and bread as well as what we thought was a jar of water at first. Upon drinking this strong liquid we realized this was definitely not water, but a very potent liquor oh which I am unsure of the name! Haha.

 

met 1met 2met 4.jpg

 

While here, I fell in love with this pottery dish that our wine was served in. I asked Frankie if he thought they might sell them. Since it had their name on it I thought maybe they did! Who knows?! Anyway, we asked our waitress who very politely said, ” I don’t know, let me go check.” A few minutes later she came back with a carefully wrapped paper with tape. She said, “It’s a gift.” And handed me my beloved pottery!

Between this “gift,” the man who jumped into the water at Sunset Ammoudi to get people’s things, all of the complimentary dishes we were served, and our hotel staff, I am still truly humbled with the hospitality we experienced in Greece.

 

met 6.jpgmenu.jpgmet 5.jpg

 

We both agreed that this was the best thing we have ever eaten. Ever.

This was a 4 cheese pastry with a blackberry sauce.

Frankie seems to think it is the Greek Kataifi.

I am pretty sure we licked the plate clean and savored every second.

Another complimentary dish!

And the view isn’t bad either…!

 

Anogi- Imerovigli, Santorini

 

This was our second favorite place and we ended up going here on a whim on one of our last nights even though we passed it on the quad every day coming and going from our hotel. It was walking distance from our hotel and truly yummy! This is also where Frankie tried Ouzo, an extremely strong Greek liquor. It has a Licorice like taste, so it was not my favorite at all! But something I felt like I had to try : )

I wish I got a picture of my actual main dish…

 

anogibreadanogi desert

 

Greek food is definitely yummy and they really love their pastries, frappes, cheese, and olives.

Did I make you hungry?

 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned! I think I am going to do one more part : )  XOXO

Stories of Santorini…Part 3: Beaches

Listening now…

Beaches make me feel at ease…this is why I picked this song!Also, it’s been on repeat lately.  Listen as you view…

 

I am sorry for the lack of posts lately everyone! A lot has been going on in my life as of late… a lot of changes!

We visited some incredibly beautiful beaches in Santorini. Ones that seem like a photo out of a calendar but are actually real life…

 

Red Beach:

Red Beach is located near the ancient village of Akrotiri- called “red” beach because of the red rocks and sand- or pebbles, that make it up.

It was a really wild thing to hear all of the pebbles wash over each other as each wave came along- reminded me of the sound of July 4th sparklers! Crackly pebbles washing over each other.

 

red beach boat

My favorite among the beaches we visited!  You might be able to see why…

The water was actually more blue in person….  #takemeback

There were doors built into the rock walls for storage that I thought were so cool…

Kamara Beach:

 

Kamara Beach is definitely your more “touristy” beach and beach town filled with tons of restaurants, bars, and shopping! This is definitely where you want to go to get your beach bar feel.

Stories of Santorini…Part 1

Listening now…

 

It’s good to get away and it’s good to come home again. Santorini was more beautiful and more of a dream than I ever imagined.  This post is going to be in parts because there are SO many photos and just so much to say about it.

I think we definitely accomplished all of our bucket list and more.

 

We stayed at the Heliotopos Hotel in Imerovigli in Santorini. I would highly recommend staying here as the hotel was stunning, the staff were so hospitable and accommodating, and the village it is located is in super quiet, yet central enough to the busier parts like Fira, which has more of a night life.

 

I could not have been happier with our stay!

Helio {sun} Topos {place} – The place of sun

I am having serious Greece withdrawals looking at our photos  (about 800 to be exact!) and want to cry now…I just feel incredibly blessed that we were able to go at all.

 

IMG_2451IMG_2449

 

We did not know until we got there that we were at the very bottom of the hotel, so we basically had our own private area right by the water and this was our balcony and view…

On one of our first days we did the walk from Fira to Oia….the view along the way was incredible!

Once you arrive in Oia, you are greeted with this beautiful chapel and archway, with love locks!

I quickly became obsessed with the churches and tiny chapels in Greece. Many of them are white with the blue dome tops and a cross on top.

The view of Oia you see as you finish your hike and venture into the town…

Oia is great for shopping, but prepare for spending your Euros…

 

We made sure to catch the sunset, especially when we first arrived, back at our hotel.

One thing I really cannot decide is if I love Greece more during the day or the night…

Here you can see the steps leading from Oia down to Ammoudi Bay to the right.

But I think I love it the best when it is turning from day to night…

Welcome to the Santorini sunset.

To fiery orange. 

 

I think I will do a whole part on this alone. I could not stop snapping photos of the most stunning sky I have ever seen.

 

Actually, I could not stop snapping photos of every.single.thing.

I am so glad I did! Looking back on them now makes me want to cry, I just feel so blessed for being able to go.

 

taking pics.jpg

 

We rented a quad so were lucky enough to get to explore the whole island as much as possible! We really tried to maximize every single day. Frankie didn’t even allow me to take naps…. lol. #nonapsallowedingreece

But I am so glad we did. We visited the areas of Oia, Kamari, Perissa, Pyrgos and Exo Gonia (my absolute favorites), Fira(capital), Akrotiri… and many little places in between.
