stay true to yourself

Had an amazing, relaxing weekend with my AMAZING family upstate! I am so beyond blessed to have the family that I have. They do not make it easy to leave, even after 6 months of living in NYC. They also do not make it easy to button my skinny jeans as they love to stuff me with food 😉 Here’s the weekend re-cap in pictures:
