The Finger Lakes

Countdown to vacation!  Two more grueling days of work and DC heat to deal with until Mike and I are officially on vacation!!!  It could not have come at a better time.  Both of us are exhausted from work and are so looking forward to spending some QT together in Upstate NY.

There are so many quaint B&B's in Upstate NY and especially in the Finger Lake region.  There are also antique markets, cute little towns, hiking and wine tasting galore!

I'm especially looking forward to the cooler weather around the lakes and the jacuzzi tub in our B&B suite!  We're staying at the Abner Adams House in Bloomfield NY....I hear they cook up a mean breakfast for us every morning, which I'm also looking forward to!!  Our room is named Ele's Escape - too cute.

I'll make sure to take lots of pictures while we're there.

Have you done any traveling this summer?
