Could I live in a place like this?








Some of the best vacations I've ever taken are the ones where I go off somewhere, sort of on my own, sort of in a group, usually with two different kinds of sneakers, maybe a Camelbak, and don't have to wear makeup for a week. This could be anywhere—from the wilderness to the desert to a beach or even a random city where I get to spend time with my best friends, walking aimlessly around town, or just hanging out by the seaside all day long.

All last week I was in Wyoming with some of my oldest friends, but there were a few days where they wanted to go biking and I wanted to go see Yellowstone, so we headed off in separate directions. It was amazing.

Obviously, Yellowstone National Park is breathtaking—and maybe I'm in this weird phase in my life/career right now where, after 10 continuous years spent going to an office every single day (seriously, I'm usually terrible at vacations—last year I took a total of 2.5 days off work) I'm taking a minute to breathe, but being away from New York, in a place like this, at this particular moment in time really made me think about where things are going in my life.
