My favorite things to do when in the village of Millerton are visiting friends at the farm just minutes from the small downtown and antique shopping destination, going out for the best pizza in town and watching for sunsets and fireflies. Here’s my travel guide of the senses for the next time you’re en route.
If I were a store: Anthropologie
The smell of: charcoal, summer dew, your grandfather’s closet
The feel of: your oldest sweater
Bring: rosewater spray, Hunter boots, Laphroaig
Not to miss: Chaseholm Farmstore for fresh cheese, raw milk, salumi
New York City is truly the coolest little/big hub. A total cluster fudge of walks of life, story, taste. I love that at any given minute, you can meet the love of your life or, your new favorite cocktail.
Where: Antica Pesa, Williamsburg
What: The Dev, a magical sage and gin drink (and totally off the menu/secret!) by full time songstress, part time magical drink maker, Devon Rae
I remember leaning my head out in the wind, while driving along the high cliffs, day dreaming over turquoise seas of Amalfi.
I wondered about living off a lighthouse nearby and writing about the people from up high.
What I imagined their lives to be like, their hopes, their loves.
It’s probably why I fell for pretending to be a thousand personalities but longed for a place to belong to all at the same time. My parents believe the best gifts you give are trips to see the world and that’s what we did. I say they instilled in us a wonder for people and lust for places near and far.
How fitting that I would end up in a city like New York. Where one can pry, and disappear, all at the same time.
