For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

The Graham & Co.

Doesn't this looks like fun? Honestly, is there anything as great as sitting around a fire toasting marshmallows while the sun goes down? They are sooooo yummie... Great! Now all I can think about are toasted marshmallows! 
The Graham & Co. is a 20 room hotel in Phoenicia, which is in the Catskills of New York State, that offers many amenities including a swimming pool, hammocks to lounge in and free bikes to get around on. Not to mention a local 24 hour fruit stand should you need to make a smoothie at 3:00 am (and yes, some of the rooms have kitchenettes so you can make your smoothie). Movie nights and outdoor activities are also featured but it was the unique design of the guest rooms and common spaces that caught my eye. See what you think.
