A Weekend Away in the Berkshires and Hudson

Hannah Hart Beat

Hi Hart Beat! Sorry for my delay in this post. Life has been happening fast since the summer/spring weather hit New York (!!) and I’ve been spending my non working hours away from the computer. Plus, Pedro and I headed up to my hometown of Stockbridge, MA over the weekend to celebrate his 30th birthday. Big. Deal.

My parents still live in the house I grew up in and I feel super lucky that I have a beautiful Berkshire County house to escape to any weekend I need to. To get from Stockbridge to Brooklyn is only a three hour drive or a two hour train ride. Since we went up this weekend with the two pups, Pedro and I drove up Thursday night. We were able to both take off work Friday and Monday so had an extended time in the country. Ugg, I miss it so much up there.

This weekend we did some of my favorite things to do in the area like hiking, drinking cocktails and coffee, and exploring Great Barrington and Hudson, two towns really close to Stockbridge. Here are some photos that I took over the weekend with where they were shot just in case you’re planning a weekend getaway out of the city anytime soon.

A Few Things, Wednesday Afternoon Edition

Hey Hart Beat. How’s you’re Wednesday? I’ve been back at work for a few days now and it’s finally hitting me that I don’t actually live in Costa Rica 😭😭😭. To distract myself a little bit here are a few things that have been going on in my life this week. You got any for me, Hart Beat?

1. MR. DARCY IS COMING TO NEW YORK!!! Well, not really. But his sexy lake drenched shirt sure is! My mom texted me this morning the following and, needless to say, I share her sentiment. “Colin Firth is on the front page of the NYTIMES. Oh la la.” Yup, Mom you get me. Read the article here.

2. This amazing song from new (to me) singer Låpsley. She sounds a liiiiitle bit like Adele which I love but the style of the music is so up my alley. I’ve been listening to it non stop. What do you think?

3. Just made a highlight and haircut appointment at Fumi, a Brooklyn hair studio in Gowanus. I’ve never been before and am excited to try someplace new. A coworker recommended them and as soon as I looked at their space online I was like YAS. Looks cool right? I’ll take some pictures while I’m there and let you know how it is. (I heard the owner bakes cookies everyday….)

4. So, so, so happy to be back home with Pedro and the boys. Pedro gave Melo and Bandit baths and hair cuts while I was away and they are looking extra cute. Here’s a pic of Melo yawning right after waking up. My heart.
