I’m trying to suck myself out of the post-vacation blue with a few pictures, but truly it’s so hard. Our girls trip to Palm Beach ended up being the best vacation I’ve ever had–there are few things in life better than spending sunny days at the beach with some of your best girlfriends (oh, and one rainy afternoon on the sun porch with two massive bottles of wine). I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I feel for these girls–between the laugh-induced tears, highway jam sessions (this was pretty much the official song of the trip. Or this (not even ashamed guys). Or this.) and late-night heart-to-hearts, I was brought back to what’s really good and important in this life–amazing memories, and people you love to share them with. Oh, and Pinot Grigio. Always Pinot Grigio. Here are a few snaps from our time at the beach–nights out are up tomorrow!
Just a few photos from a lazy weekend in the city. If you haven’t been to Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side, you must. Best cookies in NYC, hands down.
1 & 2. Some of the best views in the city.
3. I’m kind of Nuts for Nuts…go figure.
4. Gangly, tangled trees always seem a bit magical.
5. These two were having the most amazingly serious “bro” convo about girls. Yes, I was eavesdropping.
6. Magnet snaps for sale.
7. We witnessed the most beautiful little wedding.
8. This gentleman was playing perfect vintage tunes on this gorgeous sax. I couldn’t stop imagining where his talent had taken him throughout his life.
9 & 10. There’s no better way to celebrate a Sunday stroll than with Laduree macarons.
11. Bird’s eye view.
p.s I updated my “about me” page and added a FAQ section. If you have a question that wasn’t answered there, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll add it!

Once September rolls around, I pretty much plan my weekends around fairs. Growing up in New England, they were quintessentially “fall,” and one of my favorite things to do (you can see a re-cap of my favorite fall tradition last year here). I took a time out from city life this weekend to head to The Big E and the day was filled with delicious food, gorgeous weather and plenty of apple cider–only the best things, of course.
My favorite moment of the day had to have been seeing this little girl, who insisted on going on the swings multiple times in a row. That was my favorite ride growing up–I loved the weightlessness you’d feel, and how it almost looked like you were floating. I have to say, watching her make the rounds with her arms out made me pretty darn happy.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! So, I’m nosy…what’s your favorite fall tradition?
