Take the long way home (and a Friday linky!)

– Posted in: featured

Life can be a series of metaphors if we look hard enough. I had this realization the other day while on an impromptu expedition around my neighborhood. The sun was shining and I bathed in the golden hour of sunlight—excited for a chance to break free from my workload and enjoy Mother Nature’s gift. I [...]

In honor of the women in my life

girls with flowers

Last night, I left my apartment in a cloud of Dolce & Gabbana and big hair. I debated briefly whether or not I should don heels (answer is always no) and I made my way to an adorable Italian restaurant in Chelsea to meet my girlfriends. Miraculously I was the first to arrive, and as [...]

Good morning, sweet friends, we’ve made it to Monday! See what I did there? Mondays have a rather unfair reputation as being the wart of the workweek. No one wants a Monday, which is why there are countless memes devoted to how much it sucks and a population of people who’d rather skip it altogether. [...]

I have a really hard time admitting that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew.

“If I only had a few more hours in the day.” How often have we been guilty of saying that? Of thinking that with just a few more minutes of sunlight we can do the impossible and check off every item on our ever-growing “To Do” list? I’ve learned over the years that it actually [...]

February Friday Favorites

The weekend is finally here and apparently it will be a really nice one with temps tipping into the 50s. Sad when that feels warm but I’ll take it. I have been dreaming of warm weather and even suggested to Bryan that we go to “Yappy Hour” (yes, yappy) at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park [...]
