Month: September 2013

Finally Fall!

I’m so excited to see signs of Fall everywhere, as it’s my favorite season. I love the cool, crisp air, crunching leaves and chilly nights. I also love doing Fall family activities and this past weekend didn’t disappoint.

We took Lady M on her first pumpkin-picking experience. A local greenhouse near us sells pumpkins during the season along with apples, cider, cider donuts and more. Being Lady M’s first Halloween, we’re hitting up another nursery next week where they have a walk-through Halloween story for kids, a petting zoo and hayrides.

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, I met a friend at a chic restaurant Gemma, in NYC’s East Village for a wonderful brunch. The weather was so perfect that we ended up walking over 40 blocks stopping along the way at some favorite shops such as Fresh, ABC Carpet & Home and Eataly. All in all, a perfect Fall weekend!

Back to Reality

Well here we are, officially in September. It’s also officially back to reality for me. The Husband went off to work today so Lady M and I are back to our normal routine.

She’s napping now so I can get some stuff done. I have a to-do list of tasks that I’ve yet to conquer but will in good time. 🙂

It’s also back to my work – the summer had been a bit slow for writing jobs but it seems things are already picking up! The Junior League is also back in full gear so my Media duties are already pouring in.


I’ve always loved September – it seems like a time to make new beginnings and start fresh. Here’s to a fulfilling September!
