One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups and downs of travel. But sometimes, I also just want to remember and share the little things that brought me day-to-day joy. Every Friday, I’ll give you a peek into the book I currently can’t put down, a great restaurant discovery, a fun new product or an inspiring quote: a few things that I think you might enjoy before we all take off into the glory that is the weekend! Wine in Brooklyn

It’s hard to believe that this is our last week in our Bed-Stuy apartment! I’ve been trying to soak up all of our favorite things about the neighborhood: eating take-out pizza from Speedy Romeo on the roof, acupuncture sessions and massages at City Acupuncture, long walks and bike rides down all of my favorite tree-lined streets of brownstones. And, of course, savoring life in our first apartment together: we’ve watched countless shows on the comfy couch, drank many beers on the balcony, figured out how to live together and brought home a pug. I’m so excited about the new chapter, and this apartment certainly wasn’t perfect–but we have so many wonderful memories in this space, and I’m so grateful for it.

My workout routine + favorite exercise studios in NYC

Over the past five years living in New York City, I’ve tried out a bunch of different workout routines. They’ve shifted based on where I’ve lived, where I’ve worked, what my daily schedule looked like, how much money I was making, what I felt I needed at any given time, the season. I’ve had a […]

A visit to Tivoli Gardens

When my friend Renee suggested spending my 29th birthday at a theme park, I was extremely dubious. Other than Ferris wheels (which I adore), I generally feel that theme parks are expensive and manufactured and best experienced either as a child or with a child. But she managed to convince me, and I am SO glad […]

A long weekend in Copenhagen

I’m honestly surprised it took me this long to visit Copenhagen! I worked for a high-end Danish furniture company in Australia, where I learned a ton about the iconic Scandinavian designers and became enamored with the concept of hygge. And then I moved to New York City, and had a succession of three wonderful roommates […]

Exciting news: we’re moving!

When my now-husband and I first started getting serious, I sort of assumed (for better or worse) that we’d stay in New York City forever. He’s a born-and-bred New Yorker, and this is the city where we met and started our life together. But one day a couple of years ago–most likely in a snowstorm- or […]

Notes on turning 29

Several years ago, I spotted one of those inspirational quotes on Pinterest: “You only have 10 years to be in your 20s.” I’ve kept it in mind over the years: am I making the most of these (supposedly) carefree and fun years of my life? As I enter the last year of my 20s, I’m mostly pleased […]
