Everyone keeps asking how we are in New York. We’re all just taking it one day at a time. Last week was the most stressful as we all waited for word that the city would receive a “shelter in place” order. I think many people think that means that we are not allowed outside. (If […]

Sorry for the lack of posts the last two days. I had a lot going on this week including a sore throat that luckily didn’t turn into anything more. I’m also trying to finalize all my plans for my birthday trip to Charleston next week. I did manage to take a walk in Central Park […]

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy […]

I’ve been home for a week now and feels really good to be back. I love that I can shop on Sundays and get anything I want delivered at any time. It’s also been great to see my friends and my favorite people in the neighborhood. Oh, and yes I got an amazing manicure and pedicure […]
Many of you are celebrating Easter Monday today so I’ve decided to keep with the theme of spring. It was the most beautiful weekend in New York and it seemed like every person in the city was in Central Park on Sunday. Everything is in bloom and putting us all in a good mood after […]
When Chico’s asked me to participate in their Destination Fabulous campaign and create a city guide, I couldn’t imagine how I’d narrow down all the wonderful places I love in New York. So instead, I’ve narrowed my focus down to my neighborhood on the Upper East Side and my 10 favorite places. We joke that […]
Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. – Robert Frost Photo by me via instagram
Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. – Henry James photo by me via instagram
Sometimes I get annoyed with bloggers who post all their instragram photos on their blog since most of the time I’ve already seen them. I try not to do it myself but I know some of you don’t follow me and therefore you are missing out on my photos of springtime in New York. It […]
I’ve walked by and photographed this obelisk in Central Park dozens of time over the years. It wasn’t until my participation with Partners in Preservation that I actually learned its name and history. It is known by the nickname Cleopatra’s Needle and was commissioned as part of a pair by Pharaoh Thutmosis III around 1500 […]
