Happy Father's Day! (A little late, but worth the wait!)

So happy belated Father's Day!  For all the fathers, father figures, soon-to-be fathers, and yes, even fathers of pets, I hope it was a lovely day for you this past weekend.  I enjoyed a day with my boyfriend and our wonder pup, Watson, upstate New York visiting a few amazing places I highly recommend:
 The Rail Trail in New Paltz

Robibero Vineyards (a pet-friendly winery)

 The Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park -- also pet-friendly

 And finally finishing off the day eating at a pet-friendly restaurant, Gigi, in Rhinebeck with some lovely outdoor seating and delicious Mediterranean fare made exclusively from local farms.


Definitely a fun day that we all enjoyed -- and an itinerary I recommend for anyone visiting the Hudson Valley area!

Also, as I strongly believe that single days like Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Valentine's Day should really be celebrated everyday, here are some handmade gifts your dad would enjoy all year-round (in case you're running a little behind like me ;).
Weekly Planner  Hand woven Black Satin Ribbon
PriaVanda -- Weekly Planner
Rain Hat in Gray Cotton with Red Top Stitch - L
Rocks and Salt -- Rain Hat
Bike Flask
Citibitz -- Bike Flask
Graphic T shirt silkscreen printed (Chupa Cabra) Mens White - M
Kimmchi -- Silkscreen Printed Chupa Cabra T-Shirt

Mens sterling round diamond cut cufflinks swivelback Father's Day gift
Metalicious -- Sterling Round Diamond Cut Cufflinks

Warm wishes to all the dads out there -- and a huge hug to my dad!!  You're the best and thank you for all that you do.
