Posts Tagged ‘summer in the city’

Sorry, I haven’t been around in a couple of weeks, I have been enjoying the unstructured days of summer 😊

The girls are at camp and I am desperately finding ways to counter balance the heartbreak in the world right now and the insanity of politics with the simple things that summer brings. I am distracting myself with quiet moments, new shows, long walks, new reading material, dinner with friends and even trips to the dentist and eye doctor. Mostly I am just taking time to breathe. 

Summer, a time to slow down a bit, relax, look around, appreciate. 

Here are few pics from the past couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy them. Happy summer my friends! 😎💜

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. 😎

The girls leave for camp in a little over a week. It has been nice to have them home, enjoying a no schedule, relaxing start to the summer. It is starting to get hot in the city and this is when it becomes a bit challenging to find activities that do not involve baking in the concrete jungle. So far we have been exploring new playgrounds (with water features), riding our bikes, epic board game battles, play dates, movies and today chilling out with a good book in the a/c. I am also keeping a close eye on the suggestions from my good friend Babette who just started a Camp Mom NYC Blog… be sure to check it out if you are looking for fun activities to do in NYC with kids whether you are a local or a tourist!

Here a few of my favorite pics from the last few days, hope you enjoy them. I will miss the little monkeys when they are gone, but I am also looking forward to spending some time on some grown-up NYC adventures too! 😉 Happy Wednesday- stay cool my friends, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!!

Wow, it is hard to believe that it is the end of July. In just over a week we pick up the girls from camp. A month- poof!- just like that! Summer sure does fly by…

I have been enjoying the simpler things this summer. After we got home from Newport, I had a little minor surgery which ended up involving a little complication, no worries, all is good. I am good. But, it just meant that the recovery was a bit longer than anticipated. It forced me to slow down, relax and just take some time. Over the past couple of weeks I have been reading, binge watching “Orange Is The New Black” (thank you Dana for the recommendation, it is AMAZING!!!), strolling through the MET (loved the Punk exhibit and the Roof Garden Commission by Imran Qureshi), enjoying coffee with friends, brunch with family, celebrating a birthday, meeting a new baby, writing letters to the girls, going on long walks and basically just slowing down a bit. It has been very relaxing. And refreshing.

Today Ron is back from his week long business trip in Europe and cherished friends are arriving from Ottawa. I am very much looking forward to some serious fun in NYC this weekend. I am also missing my little monkeys like crazy and can’t wait to see them next weekend. I have enjoyed the peace and quiet but I hate to admit it, but I do believe I thrive on the chaos 😉

Here are some pics taken over the past week or so, hope you enjoy them and I hope you are all finding time to relax and enjoy the beauty of summer. xox
