She is such a beauty as she quietly watches over the city and sneakily follows your every move. It is worth taking your hand out of a glove on a bitter cold day to capture her magnificence. Happy Wednesday!
Thanks to my amazing husband I have had the opportunity to get away for a few days, just me, by myself. It has been wonderful. What I have enjoyed the most is just being able to reflect and zone out in peace and quiet. Time to get lost in my own thoughts. I head back to NYC today refreshed and focused. I am incredibly grateful for this. Here are a few pics from the past few days. Hope you are all finding little moments of wooosaaa in the midst of crazy November!

It is one of those boring days filled with errands, appointments and nothing really too exciting to write about or even take a picture of. And then, just like that, you turn the corner and see a fire hydrant all dressed up with a hat… In NYC, we are fancy like that ;) Made me smile. Hoping to add a little positivity to your day. Happy Wednesday!!!
It is another beautiful day here in NYC. We have had a spectacular Fall filled with lots of sunshine and mild temperatures. I am trying to enjoy every moment as I know that winter is indeed coming. Today I had a doctor’s appointment on the east side. Rather than hopping a cab or grabbing the crosstown bus I decided to walk. I always seem to forget how quick it is to cross Central Park and be on the other side. Today on my walk I was rewarded with gorgeous tree colors, marathoners from other countries running the loop, tourists and locals strolling and for me, basically a sense of peace as I marveled once again, at the beauty of this city. Here are few pics that I snapped along the way. Hope you enjoy them. Have a wonderful Wednesday and a fabulous week!

Today is a gloomy, rainy day. But I couldn’t help but notice little bursts of color that would not be muted among the concrete jungle. I hope you enjoy a little splash of sunshine among the raindrops. Happy Wednesday :)
I have to do 6 weeks of O/T on my pinky. Yes, you read that right, on my pinky. A couple of weeks ago I was at R’s baseball game and a foul ball was coming at my head. I used my hand to shield my head and well, let’s just say that the finger that stopped the ball wasn’t too happy and came out at a very odd angle. A bad dislocation and other tendon issues that I barely understand have sent me to O/T to get everything fully functioning as it should be.
So, that is why today I started off my day in a ‘hood that I normally don’t hang out in. Times Square is actually quite pleasant on a weekday morning. The crazy crowds have not yet gathered and the hustle and bustle of people going to work, combined with the ever present lights offer just enough excellent distraction and people watching. Here are a couple of pics I took this morning. I look forward to getting out and exploring a new place a couple of times a week and of course, doing numerous hand exercises ;)
Have a wonderful day!

My youngest daughter and I had a blast making the recipes this weekend. We shopped for ingredients, cranked up the tunes, danced around the kitchen and bonded over baking. Our apartment smelled amazing. We decided to share our treats with fellow neighbors and then the girls took more goodies to school today to spoil their teachers. Send in a request and maybe our next batch will arrive on your doorstep =)
Here are a few pics from our baking adventure!
