Even after living in this city for almost six years I am still amazed at how fast the weather can change. A reminder that we do in fact live on an island!
This morning was absolutely beautiful. Cooler temps with dazzling sunny blue skies. The perfect morning for a walk in the park with Babette and Memphis.
I am now back in the apartment and the sky is darkening, the wind is picking up and there is a storm warning that includes thunder, lightening and hail!
So, I will leave you with the beauty of Central Park from this morning. Wishing you a fabulous Wednesday. Hope you remembered your umbrella! 😊

Summer weather has officially hit NYC which means hot and steamy running conditions. That didn’t stop us and tons of other runners from getting out there and hitting the pavement on global running day. The 4 miles weren’t exactly refreshing but they did feel like a great workout. Feeling lucky to be able to have access to so many incredible running routes in NYC and grateful for fantastic running partners. Happy Global Running Day everyone! Hope you find some time to lace up and get out there 😊

This morning Memphis and I did our first run together in Central Park. The forecast for the week calls for rain and more rain so I thought I would try and burn off some of his energy by bringing him with me. I am supposed to be easing back into running. Ha! He is fast. I definitely slowed down his pace but luckily he is easily distracted by everything!! Squirrel!!
We have to work on our synchronicity but he is an enthusiastic partner and motivator. His energy is contagious.
It was great to be back in the park hitting the pavement. Hope you are having a great day! Stay dry and think positive. 😀

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 💜
