Within the big ol’ Capital Region, we have SOOO many things we can do for fun. Sure the trampoline parks are cool, lots of restaurants and the malls. But what else is there to really do? So many times I hear people say, “I hate where I live” or “there’s nothing to do here.” And, I’m here to prove that is not true, at all!

Forts Ferry Farm

A year or so ago, just doing the typical Instagram scrolling, I stumbled upon Forts Ferry Farm! I loved their pictures and looked through their business info. Forts Ferry Farm, Latham, NY…. Latham? Where the heck is there a FARM in Latham? I couldn’t believe it.

So, last Sunday I had a coffee date planned with a friend at a Starbucks in Latham. I had extra time, so I was like “I’m going to that farm!” Finding the farm was super easy! If you know where the Latham Target is then its just 2 or so minutes from there!

The farm is open Thursday through Sunday. 12 to 6 on Thursdays & Fridays, 10 to 4 on Saturday & Sunday.

The first thing you’ll see when pulling is in the MARKET. Just tell me how cute this little market is!? Adorable!

 

 

I was on the hunt for veggies!

The most interesting thing that I found was in fact, the veggies! They were the typical veggies we see at the grocery store, but a unique variation! They call this “Heirloom Produce.” Arrowhead cabbage, Konasu Eggplant, Scarlet Globe Radishes, Applegreen Eggplant, Parisian Gherkin Cucumbers (I bought these!!) Rugosa Friulana Squash, Tondo Scuro Zucchini, English Custard Summer Squash, and so many more! You have to check out their selection!

The Forts Ferry also gets in farm fresh meats & eggs from their friends at Fat Apple Farm that is located in the Hudson Valley, downstate.

Forts Ferry Farm also sells unique handmade goods. You can find an array of items from soaps to brooms, linen sprays and honey, paper goods and candles. They have it all! So many good finds!

Some things in our home that I refresh with linen spray are- the couch, pillows, comforter, soft chairs, dog beds & blankets, carpets, doormats, the shower curtain…

I purchased this Tidy Thyme, Room + Linen Plant-Based Spray. I love linen sprays if you’ve seen on my Instagram before, I do go a little crazy with my lavender oil spray. I had to switch up the scent and purchased Gentleman’s Cavern. I love the smell! It is masculine but fresh, and it works perfectly in our home. Some things in our home that I refresh with linen spray are- the couch, pillows, comforter, soft chairs, dog beds & blankets, carpets, doormats, the shower curtain, etc.!

hello and welcome

a little bit of why

I am new to this entire world of blogging. I’d say years ago I never really understood why people took the time to blog. Now, I actually view at least one random blog per day, weather it’s a Pinterest recipe, or blog about organization, a DIY home improvement/ crafting blog, and many more.

I love blogs because they are written by real people. Yes, I know that a computer does not magically generate an article on the best place to receive a Brazilian wax within metropolitan NYC for Cosmopolitan Magazine, or the latest diet fads and recipes in Women’s Health. Blogs are real people like you and me, that don’t have a team of editors and contributors. Ordinary working people writing, or I should say blogging, about everyday activities and interests. This isn’t for work, it’s a hobby!

I think Pinterest is a great outlet to discover new blogs. What can’t you find on Pinterest? I’ve learned that there truly is an article about any and everything. I found Pinterest very handy when it came time to wedding plan. Not only did I find a lot of inspirational pictures, but I found a lot of blogs and websites written by real brides.

As I’ve mentioned, I love to cook. Sometimes it is hard to whip up a new recipe on a Wednesday night, and let’s face it… we all get sick of the same things at times. I go to my local Hannaford or WFM, and pull up Pinterest. When I find something I like, I just make my own version of it. I’m not one to follow directions 100% (well, recipes) and have to put my little spin on it. Should I mention, I almost never measure?

I think the most exciting part of my blog is yet to come. My husband and I have slowly started the home-buying process. Although I think sharing the up’s and down’s of the home-buying process will make its way to my blog, I cannot wait to renovate a house, and make it OUR HOME (insert a million heart emojis) Owning my own home has been a dream of mine for a long time. Being a crafy, handy and frugal gal I honestly cannot wait to see what I come up with as far as design and decor!

 

Lastly, I’m excited to share with you the things I love, and new things I am trying! My blog, being one of them!

Till next time, T♥
