start of the holidays

Was in the city this week and the festivities are already starting. Sipped a fun cocktail called “Sage Advice” which is gin, sparkling wine, sage and grapefruit. Had fun catching up with a friend and looking at some of the stores on 5th Ave. The tree at Rockefeller still had scaffolding, but the lighting is next week. Today is Thanksgiving-or as I like to think of it-one last day before utter chaos. :) Cheers!

Summer loving'–part 2

I always walk away from summer kicking and screaming. The weather was off to a rocky start this season so I did my best to make up for it with as many trips to the pool and beach as possible. I enjoyed the local outdoor concerts under the stars, hanging with friends on the patio, cackling over David Sedaris' "Calypso", taking an inspiring online class and finally-riding a 6ft inflatable alligator in the ocean. That was an unexpected post Labor Day purchase down in Spring Lake. Yes, I am seven.
