OCTOBER 2018 | LONG ISLAND, NY
Ruska, in Finnish, means autumn foliage or the time in which autumn foliage occurs. For anyone who has spent an autumn on the east coast, it is easy to picture the beautiful colors, smell the crisp leaves and taste the apple cider doughnuts. Our team traveled to New York and spent a glorious, Nor’easter day on the quaint Peconic Herb Farm in their perfectly vintage glass greenhouse. We dined with the best guests who traveled from near and far and braved the windy and rainy weather for a cozy evening snuggled up while the rain came down on the glass roof. It was such a magical evening. One we won’t forget! Thanks for having us New York, we will be back so very soon!

But hidden underneath that sullen exterior, everything is still teeming with life, just waiting for the first breath of spring to burst forth.
