Hawthorne In Autumn

July 2, 2020

Given all that is going on in the world we have decided to postpone our August trip to the Hudson Valley. I think this might be the first August we have not been back to New York in the 32 years we have been together. From visits to the city early on to attend the USTA Conference along with the US Open, family trips to The Catskills, to the big gift show at Javitz, to eventually buying our old farmhouse in the Hawthorne Valley. It has been a rich history of memories. We just think it best to put all our energies into getting the shops humming, staying healthy and hunkering down in Seattle/Vashon Island. If the last few months has taught us all anything, it is the preciousness of the moment. To live it fully. That has been a guiding theme in our life, always, but now even more so. Thank heavens for photos! Our plan, fingers crossed, is to be back in October. Autumn in New York is quite something. The valley the house sits in a riot of glorious color from the moment we arrive. The light that the region is so famous for even more magical that time of year. So today I thought I would share some favorite shots I nabbed from that season over the last 7 years.
