finger lakes wine country, new york
This summer my friend and fellow blogger @alongwayfromhome went on what looked like the most amazing weekend getaway to Finger Lakes, NY. So naturally, as anyone looking for a weekend getaway would, I had to copy her and jump in on the fun for myself...I’m so glad I did!
My boyfriend, Colin, and I were pretty excited to head to Finger Lakes with Finger Lakes Wine Country to create a promotional video HERE, post along the way and create a little itinerary for all of you. So here are some highlights of our trip and some pictures we wanted to share!
