February, you are definitely the longest, shortest month.
I am not going to lie, I have been in a bit of a funk lately. The weather is up, down, snow, rain, freezing rain, fog, warm, cold… it can’t make up its mind. Life is busy, the political world is overwhelming (that is an understatement) and the rat race is a rat race. Being a grown up is hard, yo. And some days it would be easier to stay under the covers. Oh yes it would. Tempting. Very tempting. I know we have all been there.
So, I am really trying to focus on a bit of self care and reframing. Focusing on the positive because no matter how dark the days can seem, there is always something positive. Always. I truly believe that. We are stronger together. Kindness goes a long way. Never be afraid to ask for help. That can be the hardest thing to do sometimes, I know it is for me. It’s okay to be tired, to regroup, to recharge. We have got this. Yes we do.
I am turning up the tunes, heading out to enjoy the city and sending some love and positive energy to all of you.
Here are some pics from the last month. Enjoy!

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 😉 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!!! 💜💜💜

One of the things I love the most about living in NYC is getting to see the reactions of people experiencing Manhattan for the first time. It really is an awe- inspiring place with so much to see and do it is impossible to even scratch the surface on a three day trip. My former high school where I taught at, Gloucester High School, arrived last Thursday and did their very best to squeeze in as many activities as possible in three days. I would say that they were incredibly successful! I can only imagine that there were some pretty tired kids and some worn out feet on the bus ride home =) It was wonderful to be able to spend some time with a great group of teens and some cherished friends. There really is nothing better than getting lost in the energy and excitement of the chatter about New York, it reminds me of how truly lucky I am to live in such a special place. Thanks for letting me hang out with you- GHS music gang, you are an awesome group and you also made me remember how fortunate I was to teach at the beyond awesome GHS. Go Gators! (Here are just a few pics from their MANY adventures, I could barely keep up!)

Tough time to be in New York when you are from Ottawa =(

It is another glorious Spring day in Manhattan. I had a doctor’s appointment over on the upper east side this morning and since the weather was so beautiful I decided to walk home back on over to the upper west side. Here are the pics I took as I walked. Enjoy and have a fabulous day =)

Always remember to look up!
No, not the Dr. I was visiting 😉
