the living is easy

Finally, it's summer. Hot, hazy, humid. Just in time for the back-to-school push.

I celebrated this past weekend with a music festival. Outdoors + Josh Ritter = swoooooon. The first ever MASS MoCA music festival was really quite nice. Great food (and totally reasonably priced, to boot) and local BBC beer on tap. Carleen and I found a spot on the grass and spread out a blanket. The mill architecture was brilliantly lit. When Josh came on to close out the fest, we abandoned the blanket and parked ourselves front-and-center. The only disappointment? He didn't do "Kathleen." Boo to that. (Oh, and for Carleen, it was spotting the wedding ring on his hand.) But all in all, a lovely way to spend a summer Saturday.

Total field trip! I think it's about 3-4 hrs from NYC, depending on traffic and the rate at which you, drive. But there's so many great spots along the way, you could drive up Rt 7 from CT and go thru Great Barrington and Stockbridge--gorgeous towns. A perfect fall trip!

I love Mass Moca! when my husband and I were living in Boston, we spent a weekend in the Berkshires for my birthday one year- we stayed at Porches in Adams- loved it!
