I spent last Saturday saying goodbye to my cousin, Kate, as she prepared to move to Tennessee for her junior year in high school. She’s been like a little sister to me, so I’m really going to miss having her here! The party was held at the township’s fire station, so obviously I had to take some pictures with the engine and truck: (yes we are dorky, and yes I made Eric...

Sidewalk-rage DOES exist. Tourists and NYC newbies beware.
inspiration: pretty pretty princess
The little girl in me wants to be a princess. The big girl in me wants her clothes. Inspiration post, meet my dreamworld. Cue awesome princess clothes: oh, and let’s not forget what started it all… love.
City insight #2
I love it when I look up in the sky and see a random star.
city insight #1
I love that, in a city of 8 million people, I randomly run into people I know ALL THE TIME. (subway, sidewalk, restaurants, etc.)
working under fire.
no joke….that is a bullet hole in the window next to my desk. Some little punk has opened fire (most probable weapon is a BB-gun) on Avon. Avon security doesn’t seem to be all that worried….which makes me, by nature….WORRIED. That’s all for now. —————— UPDATE: this appears to be an inside job. Avon security and building...
inspiration: cool drinks
NYC is hot, hot, HOT! And I am dying for cold drinks (and a portable AC unit that I can carry around with me while outside…ha). The sangria I made last weekend was this week’s inspiration for well…this week’s inspiration post. ha. (I love it when I make myself giggle) and finally: I freaking love drinking from jars….that has to be the southern girl...
This weekend, E and I decided we had eaten out enough. The solution? Steak and chicken kabobs with sangria. Yum. These were SO good. Makes me really appreciative of his back yard/grill. On another note, we attempted to make homemade bolognese sauce last night from scratch. Surprisingly, we also scored high marks as well! I will take a picture tonight of the left overs and post the...
inspiration: dinner parties
My itty-bitty, tinie tiny, city apartment often leaves me dreaming of the future. A future where I will have (gasp) SPACE. Space for leaving stuff on the floor. Space for a really big Christmas tree. And….space for entertaining (specifically dinner parties). It’s no big secret I love to cook. Here in new york, I mainly only have space to cook for myself and sometimes E. But...
I was able to watch some of the prettiest fireworks I’ve seen in a while on Monday night. Macy’s hosts an annual fireworks display every July 4th…so I was more than excited when my friend Sarah invited me over to watch the fireworks from her roof. Unfortunately, my camera didn’t take very good pictures…so I scoured the internet for some good shots. To my...
pretty pretty saturday
I’m laying in bed right now, watching and listening to it rain, and all I can think about is my time spent yesterday on the west side highway. I wasn’t able to snap too many pictures, but I can post a few. I’m so lucky to live so close to this little piece of paradise (in a concrete world). my book (that I posted yesterday while laying out) and the pretty pretty flowers. ...
