Beautiful Berkshires

Time seems to stand still in the beautiful Berkshires.
Everything is just prettier and more peaceful. 
My husband and I found ourselves in Lee, MA this past weekend surrounded by beauty and LOTS of floral. We checked into this amazingly quaint superbly decorated Bed and Breakfast called The Federal House Inn a charming spot for authentic hospitality and just some R&R. 
We visited with friends who own a pretty horse farm then headed to dinner at one of the oldest and most picturesque Inn's; The Red Lion Inn, Widow Binghams Tavern where the food and dining experience was everything expected from such a historical gem.
 Our last day in the hills we just ventured out on hiking trails and took in nature.

Romantic Vintage

There is something so romantic about listening to older generations tell childhood stories. I absolutely love looking through photographs of the past, seeing history. No matter what the subject, it just always seems more glamorous when things are vintage. I'm now obsessed with the show American Pickers on the History Channel . The 2 guys on the show have an awesome job... they travel through the back country of america  seeking out history from peoples basements and garages, its such a great show to check out!
