It is one of those gloomy, gray, coolish fall days where it would be very easy to pull the covers over your head and go back to bed. Instead I went on an errand run with my friend Jess and took some pics along the way. Hope you enjoy the randomness of my latest adventure wandering the streets of Manhattan. From Chelsea to Harlem and back home again, I love the different vibes in each of the the ‘hoods in this city! Happy Hump Day =)

I have walked by the One Million Acts of Kindness bus (see pics below) a few times in the past couple of days and to be honest I haven’t ventured over to their website but I am sure I will. Instead, what it got me to think about was the simple act of just being nice. Thinking before you act and trying to be positive. In NYC, it is possible to come in contact with dozens, sometimes even hundreds of people a day. That kind of human interaction can be exhausting at the best of times. When I looked at the bus and read the inspirational quotes written on it, it inspired me to just be a little bit nicer as I went about my day. It really doesn’t take a lot of effort. With all of the crazy going on in the world today, just being nice to the people around us might go a long way to enjoying a happier state of being. At the very least, it just might make someone’s day 😉 On that note, have a fabulous day and be well. Happy Wednesday, S xo

Yesterday the girls had a half day of school due to parent teacher conferences. They wanted to do something “fun” so we planned a trip to go and see The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Here are some pics that I took on our walk to and from the famous aircraft carrier. Hope you enjoy our latest adventure…

So, there is not too much new and exciting going on here today. Got up, had some breakfast, rushed to get the girls to school on time… the usual. I also got to hang out with my friend Carol from NYCityMama who took me with her to the XBOX 360 KINECT event today where we were able to try out some new games and hang out with some personal trainers (aka cute boys and girls) who talked to us about KINECT fitness. It was tons of fun. Oh and it is snowing…again. Here are some pics of my day, hope you enjoy.
