Growing up  my family (and I’ve recently learned, a ton of others) had a tradition of putting an orange, usually a clementine, in the toe of our stockings on Christmas. I never really knew why we did this, but I always loved it, so I just went with it. Most years I even found myself […]

This past week included holiday parties one after another after another. It was a handful of days filled with spending time with people I truly admire, good friends, new co-workers, tons of cheese, laughing til my stomach ached, a seemingly endless stream of food, at least one too many glasses of wine each night, and […]

There wasn’t actually any cooking on our part. Instead, there was an endless stream of food. We tasted, and taste,d and tasted, […]

{via} I just finished reading The Goldfinch (finally!), and I have to say that I’m really sad it’s over. I haven’t felt this invested in a book in a really, really long time. Tell me – what should I read next??? I’m totally open to any and all suggestions, fiction and non-fiction. Next weekend we’re […]

And by “touring”, I mean feasting on more food than you can imagine, getting school on wine tasting and learning the best ways to pair wine with meals. In a word, it was awesome! […]

It’s Marathon Sunday in New York! Otherwise known as, one the greatest, if not the greatest, day of the year in New York. For years I stood on the sidelines of First Avenue near mile 19, along with my running team, cheering on marathoners and handing out bananas and oranges. For years I also swore I’d […]

Yesterday I went to my first Pilates class in about, oh, six years. I used to go all the time (six years ago). Then I discovered triathlon, and in between all the sim, bike and run, I had all I could do to fit in some strength training, let alone fit in Pilates.  So, it […]

For a long time one of my biggest frustration with living in New York City was the cost of living. In particular, groceries. Somewhere along the way I found a happy medium between feeling constantly annoyed by overpriced grocery stores/lack of inexpensive options and accepting it. Mostly because I didn’t have a choice. It’s a […]
