When I got the e-mail I think I may have done a little happy dance. Seems J. Crew is as smitten with the High Line as everyone else is (including me), and created a special collection inspired by NYC’s “Park in the Sky”: image credit: the high line This super-cool collection includes kids’ and adult […]

the high line: summer

August 29th, 2013

Oops. When I looked at my last High Line post I realized that I implied that there was to be a “late spring” post to follow. Can you guess what happened? Late spring. A.k.a., weeks – I mean, weeks – of rain. And cold. And then suddenly, summer. So no, there was no “late spring” visit. […]

I was so excited about my next installment in my “Year on the High Line” series. I mean, after the winter we’ve had, who wouldn’t be thrilled to welcome spring by spending the day at one of the city’s most fabulous parks? And then I woke up to a day like most we’ve had this […]

This is personal. The High Line – from the moment it opened 3 1/2 years ago – has become a very special place for me. I’m drawn to it in every season, and make several trips a year just to walk it. It’s magical for me. Chelsea and I have had an annual “girl’s night” […]

So here I am, back to Thursdays with Noah. Where did the summer go? I loved the fact that my outings with Noah were on Thursdays, as that was typically my “day” with Chelsea over the summer. And while her work schedule didn’t allow for as many adventures this year, we managed to squeeze a […]

Our last Thursday was our “last Thursday“. And it was hot. Blazing hot. The kind of hot that should have sent us right to a pool- any pool – or sent the boy to school for a morning in the sprinklers, followed by a nice cool nap indoors. No way. Noah was starting camp on […]

I’m heading out shortly to meet Chelsea for a girls’ overnight in New York City. By now you know that our family loves its traditions.  Whether it’s the same “first meal” at Disney, handmade signs for a birthday, or a movie date to celebrate the beginning of holiday break, we’ve gathered enough over the years […]

A while back I read a post by one of my favorite bloggers, Sharon (who I got to meet at this dinner!). She wrote about her yearly weekend away. Alone. No kids. No husband. I finished reading and then just sort of stared off for a while, thinking. Thinking about what I would do with […]

This is for Jenn. Jenn has a son who is a year older than Noah. She is also a teacher, and struggles to make her peace with the time she spends away from her boy and the benefits (salary, time off, etc.) that her profession provides. So when I put up a “Thursday with Noah” post, […]
