To the girls in the city


It was an early December evening and it was absolutely beautiful. The temperatures were in the high 40s that night. Mu husband and I were in the city to celebrate our cousin’s 30th birthday. It was just the two of us for a night out, so we decided to head in early. We just walked down the streets of Manhattan with not a care (well, a Mommy always thinks about her kids, but you know what I mean). The spring-like air made me feel rejuvenated as well.

In the midst of just being “us” and enjoying the night, my “Teacher Ear” (as I like to refer to being able to listen to a million things at once) caught a conversation between two girls. They were in their early 20s. It went something like this:

Friend 1: So, what are you doing for the holidays?

Friend 2: Ugh, I will be going to the island to spend time with my family. (“the island” is “Long Island”.) 

Friend 1: I know! Me too. It is just so annoying,

Friend 2: I can’t stand listening to the same (expletive) stories over and over again. Old people are just soooo annoying! (more…)

A much simpler life

It’s always nice to get away. Even if it’s just for 36 hours. I am definitely a city girl at heart.  Bugs don’t do it for me. And the quiet, although peaceful for awhile, gets mundane. But everyone needs some time away to recharge their batteries.  And the serenity of the quietness is just what the dr calls for.
Here are some pictures of life in a much simpler place.

20140518_105453  You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, this chair has probably heard a million.

I hope you enjoyed these few moments of calm and you can use the pictures as a source of comfort. I know I continually love to visit these places :).

Happy Monday!
