Pigs on Fire--those photos are so AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing!
It is actually our dream to move to the Catskills someday and build a house--we have been scouring properties mostly in the Andes/Bovina area. In fact, my first choice for a wedding venue would have been to buy and fix up a property there in time to have the wedding in our own backyard (with the fiance having built his own smoker), but that didn't happen as quickly as we would have liked with the recession and all.
Luckily a very kind friend offered us the use of his house in L.I. for the event, which is why we are doing it there. But hey, go w/ the flow, right?
