I am totally blissed out after spending the day at Le Nordik Spa with Nina and Kelly. It is one of my favorite things to do when I visit Ottawa. Massage, hot tubs, cold tubs, saunas, steam rooms, infinity pool, good food, wine, napping in a hammock- all in the beautiful Gatineau hills. It is an incredible way to spend the day. I am feeling grateful for wonderful friends and memorable days. And I am sooooo relaxed… Happy Wednesday 💜

There are often times in NYC where you find yourself between appointments or activities and you have to kill time because schlepping home does not make sense. This happened to me today.
It is a beautiful sunny day. Still a bit cool, but after rain and snow flurries, I am not going to complain.
I took advantage of the down time, grabbed a coffee and parked my butt on a bench in Madison Square Park. Excellent people watching, beautiful views and there was even a movie set to stalk. Not a bad way to waste some time. 😊
Happy Wednesday my friends! Enjoy the pics!!

Today I had an early start. Walked Mempis, wolfed down some breakfast, organized the girls, dropped R off at Girls on the Run and then I headed to Flatiron to Y7 Yoga Studio for an 8:15 class.
It is Hip Hop Wednesday and I did not want to miss this weeks artist: Biggie! (aka Notorious B.I.G.).
R can’t believe I go to hip hop yoga and is actually confused by this. She calls it old lady yoga. Sigh. If she only knew. My friends and I are clearly the oldest people in the room BUT that means we can truly appreciate the music 😀👍
After yoga Mel and I wandered a bit and then had a leisurely brunch. Woooosaaaa! Slowing down and appreciating the little things is good for the soul. Namaste old school peeps and happy Wednesday!!
I am bit under the weather today but I can’t feel too blue when I am lucky enough to have Memphis to snuggle with.
Taking the time to feel so much gratitude that Memphis is in our life. Happy Puppy Day to our little snuggle bug 💜

Today is a beautiful spring like day. The temps are climbing and the sun is shining. I have been sidelined from running for a few months now with achilles tendonitis. Rest and physical therapy have been helping but I have definitely missed pounding the pavement.
I recently got the go ahead to start running again. To run in very short amounts. And I promised I would listen to my body. Something most of us runners are not very good at.
So, this morning I headed to the park and did a VERY short and slow walk/run. It felt good and it is a start. Central Park was its majestic self, teeming with runners, walkers and cyclists. It is really hard to resist its beauty on such an incredible day 😀
Happy Wednesday my friends. Keep springing forward and focusing on the positive. Remember, one foot at a time 😉

This past Friday we moved into our new apartment. The girls and I love the new space. It truly feels like a fresh start and a warm and wonderful home. On that same day we also welcomed a new addition to our family.
It wasn’t supposed to happen this fast… We had just put our beloved Dopey down not too long ago. But, as I have learned time and again, life doesn’t always work on a specified timeline or go exactly as planned.
A kind hearted and amazing soul named Judy who works with the group NYC Second Chance Rescue was fostering Memphis. I decided to go and meet him. From the moment I laid eyes on him, I knew he was the perfect dog for our family. Memphis is a total love bug who loves everyone, is curious, happy to meet other animals and loves cuddles and kisses. He is approximately 9 months and weighs 40 pounds. Judy is convinced Dopey sent him to us, I think she might be right. Hard to say if we rescued him, or if he rescued us 💜
I feel like brighter days are ahead. Hard to have a bad day when a happy, wiggle butt greets you at the door!
A BIG thank you to Judy and NYC Second Chance. We are grateful for all you do.
Happy Wednesday my friends, sending puppy kisses your way!!
The girls and I are doing a move within in our building. A little down sizing. We are all (especially me!) super excited to have a new space to call our own. New decorating possibilities- woohoo!!
However, it is still taking as much energy and work as a move across the city or country would be. I am going through each and every room and space, throwing out, donating and packing. And consuming a lot of caffeine! 😀 It is exhausting but I know that it will be worth it in the end. But seriously, how many towels and sneakers does one family need??
So, if you need me over the next week or so I will likely be under a box or bin or maybe stuck under a pile of books. I happily welcome distractions. I AM a procrastinator to the core!
Happy Wednesday! Keep on rocking my friends.
