My birthday month has begun, and the reason why I'm saying 'birthday month' is because I will be turning the big 25 this year. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to spend more time with friends and enjoy this coming of age. 

The first birthday month activity was going upstate to Rhinebeck with some of my childhood friends. We found a beautiful house that I didn't want to leave (which you can check out the tour of on my Instagram highlights), and spent the weekend laughing away. There was a gorgeous bathtub that was too beautiful for me to pass up, so of course, I had to take a dip.

On Saturday, we headed out to Mohonk Mountain Resort and it felt like I was transported into the world of Harry Potter. The view was stunning and filled with snow. It was really nice for taking photos. We went to the ice skating rink, which was empty, so it was really cool having the entire rink to ourselves. It's been a long while since I've ice skated so it took me a while before I got the hang of it.

There were fireplaces located throughout the resort, which was nice since it was freezing outside. Even with the thousands of layers I had on, my body felt way too cold. Good thing we didn't have to stay out for too long, but I do want to come back here when it's warmer! I would love to hike here and see the views.

After the resort, we went home and had a lovely home cooked meal by one of my friends who is a chef. It was so delicious. I wish you could've tasted it. Too bad I don't have any good pictures of the food. For the rest of the night, we enjoyed each others company, played a bunch of board games, and laughed until it was time for bed.

Sunday means it's time for brunch, right? I found this cute restaurant called The Amsterdam and the interior was cozy and cute. The food was really good and the service was great. It was a really great way to end the trip except that it was too good and I ended up with extreme food coma afterwards.

This trip is definitely one for the books. I vlogged my entire time there, though I'm not sure I did such a great job, but I will be putting together a vlog of all my birthday festivities this month so expect that on the channel! I'm excited for the other plans I have this month and I can't wait to share them with you.
