The Mount - Edith Wharton's former home



The Mount is a house museum in the Berkshires that is formerly owned by the novelist Edith Wharton. Built in 1902, she designed (with the assistance of Ogden Codman Jr.) this house based on 17th century design with Italian and French influences. The property has been declared as a National Historic Landmark and it is open to the public that welcomes 40,000 visitors each year.

Seen on the grounds of the Mount in Lenox, Massachusetts. Worst time to see them during summer at dawn when the mosquitos start to buzz over your head.

Summers in New York City can be unbearable. But this didn't deter people from eating outdoors. The Marimekko umbrellas also adds to the charm.


Eataly - New York City

This is one of my favorite stops whenever I am in town. To me, its one stop shop. I can (window) shop. Get coffee, ice cream, bread or pastry. Eat snack, lunch or dinner. Or all of the above. It is always crowded here both with tourists and locals. I like to come in earlier when the workers are in the process of setting up shop for the day.


First stop is coffee. By just looking at the giant silver espresso machine, you could tell that they are serious about coffee.

Nothing can be more addicting than fried pickles. We bought one to try and bought some more. Madison is crazy on eating anything pickled.
