It’s hot and sticky, reading the newspaper is depressing, overheated people in the city are grouchy, I miss my girls, sometimes you wake up a little blue…

And then you walk down the street and see these two cuties deep in conversation, heads almost touching. My heart lifted, I couldn’t help but smile. Thank you littles, whoever you are. It’s the little things. 

Happy Wednesday my friends πŸ’œ


I am currently all comfy on the Jitney heading to the Hamptons. After five years in the City, I am finally taking the road trip. Thank goodness for quiet air conditioned buses. I am already relaxed and leaving the heat and hustle of NYC behind me…

Happy Wednesday my friends, I hope the summer is treating you all well. 😎 


I can’t believe that my baby turns 10 today. Double digits. Time sure does fly. Some days you just want to hold on to the little moments and never let go. I know she will be having an amazing time as she celebrates at camp today. Wishing my fabulous, fierce, independent, strong, big hearted Roo a wonderful birthday!!! We love you πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ 



It’s that time of year again where the countdown to camp is real- 4 more sleeps!!! The apartment has been transformed into piles of items and things are being dutifully crossed off the packing list. We (or should I say I??!!) are almost done. The kids sweet reward is four weeks of paradise outside of the city. The adult reward is four child free weeks πŸ˜€ A win- win situation. Although I will definitely miss my two “not so little monkeys”, I am looking forward to a little peace and quiet or not… depending on my mood 😜 

Happy Wednesday my friends. I hope you are all enjoying your own little summer paradise, whatever/wherever it may be. Cheers!


Today the girls and I survived a shopping trip to Target. They are leaving for a month long camp adventure in 10 days and need a few last minute items. So, off to Target we went.

I usually go alone.

We all survived.

No one was injured or left behind.

We made it home in one piece.

The psychological damage will probably not be permanent.

I still forgot the damn batteries.

I need a drink ;)

Happy Wednesday and Happy Canada Day to all my friends and family in the Great White North, Eh!


Two more days until the girls are finally out of school for the summer. I can’t wait. Remind me I said that in a few weeks πŸ˜‰ It is a spectacular day in NYC. No humidity, no clouds, not too hot and the promise of hazy, lazy days of summer right around the corner. 

Here’s to day trips, no packed lunches, picnics in the park, exploring the city, going away to camp, vacations away from the city, the empty summer streets, sleeping in, staying up late and enjoying each and every moment. 

Happy Summer my friends!!! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ


May the beauty of the day-

Lift your spirits,

Lighten your load,

Warm your heart,

Free your soul,

Ready your smile. 

Enjoy the day my friends. πŸ’œ
