The 3rd First Day

The 3rd First Day

First days on the job are always weird. You don’t have anything really to do… but you have SO much to do. But you don’t know how to do anything… but you want to do EVERYTHING. You don’t know where the coffee is… but you REALLY want a cup of coffee. And today, was another … Continue reading

In the meantime…

In the meantime…

As I mentioned in my last post, I left my job and am starting another. But in the meantime, I took a few days off to recharge my batteries. It was a busy few days full of getting little tasks done, spending time with friends and going on a big adventure (or what I call- … Continue reading

My Last Performance

My Last Performance

Tonight as I left work, I stood in the wings and watched my last Nutcracker. Not only because this is the last weekend of the season, but also because I’m leaving my job. At the end of next week,  I’m not going to be in fundraising anymore (sad), I’m not going to experience all of … Continue reading

I’m taking this first day of twenty fourteen to watch Portlandia, eat pizza, and make some resolutions. Cause January 2 is when … Continue reading

Refresh.

Refresh.

This weekend my goal was to refresh. I did a pretty good job at it. Candles, knitting, pulling out the fall sweaters, a play, a bit of indulgence and a very lucky escape out of the city. It was indeed a very refreshing weekend. And then we continue breathing…

While I’ve been away

While I’ve been away

Well, I’ve pulled a muscle in my back and have been confined to my bed. So there is no better time to start writing again right? Truthfully, it is the only way that I’ve stopped in the last couple of months. It has been a complete whirlwind. It definitely has not been an easy few … Continue reading

Back to bizniz

After a Christmas experience very different than years past, I’m back in New York. Though I never vocalized it pre-25th, I was nervous about Christmas this year. It was the first time not seeing my mom on Christmas ever, not going out to California for part of the holiday, and it was the shortest Christmas … Continue reading

Tarrytown

Tarrytown

One of the things I wanted to do on my long Thanksgiving weekend was get out of the city. I hadn’t left the city since I went to Spain 3 months ago, so I was ready for an escape. But with the short time frame, holiday crowds and wanting to be a little cheap- I … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Well hello all- I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’m ending mine curled up on my couch feeling a little sicky. But that doesn’t mean I had an awesome Thanksgiving. This was the first year that I wasn’t able to make it back to family. Weird. A bit sad. And very different. But I’m … Continue reading

24

Welp, I’m 24. As a wise friend said- it can’t be that bad of a year when you have an TV show named after it. But Taylor Swift also has stopped writing songs about my age soooo yeahhhh. Truthfully though- I had an amazing birthday. Between my surprise birthday party at work, to an evening … Continue reading

Mother’s Bike Out

Mother’s Bike Out

Just has a lovely stay-cation with my mom that included a wonderful Broadway show, an amazingly shwanky dinner, and picking out makeup. The most beautiful portion of our stay-cation was an amazing bike ride around Central Park (woot woot Groupon!) It was so wonderful to see the colors changing and parts of the Park I … Continue reading

I’m Back.

I’m Back.

Hey friends. I missed you. Can I get minorly deep for a second? When we last saw each other, I wasn’t in the best spot. I was overwhelmed, unhappy, and just not feeling like myself. And then I disconnected- I went to Spain, I learned to like myself again, and life got a lot better. … Continue reading

Peanut Butter FOR THE WIN.

Peanut Butter FOR THE WIN.

I’ve been wanting to go to Peanut Butter & Co. since I heard it existed. A place that is entirely peanut butter sandwiches= heaven. I first tried the various flavors of peanut butter at the New York Chocolate Show (white chocolate peanut butter, maple peanut butter and more!) This magnificent establishment is owned by the … Continue reading

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

A year ago today, my sweet friend Kerry dropped me off at the Indianapolis airport with some hugs and I was off to New York. I arrived completely turned around and completely exhausted. I can’t believe how much has changed since that day. Grant it, I’m still often turned around and almost always exhausted, but … Continue reading
