Images of a Weekend


For all the horror that winter brings in Manhattan, she certainly makes up for it in June. The city is happy, the energy is good, and behind every turn awaits an explosions of flowers, artists, farmers market harvests, and the sparkling sunlight. The Hudson glitters like a canary diamond and, for once, even the garbage trucks seem to hum quietly to themselves while lovers quarrels are called to a truce in place of strolls through the park in all the quiet pleasures of life.

I went to the farmers market, I walked Riverside Park, I explored Gotham Market and learned that rice crispy treat ice cream is a thing and it’s amazing. I started watching the 2nd season of Chef’s Table (one of my all time favorite food shows) and enjoyed my new Diptyque candle that smells of home cooked Madeleines. This I photographed {above} with my Monica Rich Kosann locket and a memento from one of the sweetest moments of the weekend — when I stumbled upon a poet writing poems for donation which he bases on any theme you told him. I asked him to make me a poem on Provence and this is what he wrote…

The image need not be imagine

it’s beautiful as it is

The people need not be questioned

they’ve an honest way to live

Give to the land and in return

the land gives back to you

It’s funny how we go so far

to learn the truth

Diary of a Weekend

After flying every week since the start of the New Year, we were so happy to be home this weekend in New York. I’ve really been wanting some time for reflection, inspiration, and simple pleasures. Below are a collection of Polaroids from my archive through the years and thoughts from a weekend home…

Images of a City Summer Weekend~

Bike rides and long walks, movies and dance… sometimes the best times are long summer afternoons in New York City….

*cracks knuckles* Here is how I spent my weekend:

-Stopping by the flower market to stock up on this week’s office flowers (I swear it makes me work better)

-Lunch at the old Tavern on the Green in Central Park turned Food Truck mecca… the mini pita burgers at Pera Turkish Tacos are to die for. I ate them so fast I forgot to take a picture. #fail

Then this happenedhow could it not?

-My current favorite summer dress. A little 40s throw back but made new. I discovered The Reformation: “Inspired by vintage, these pieces have been reformed with a modern eye to create something at first recognizable but in the end completely new.” Love, Love, Love 

-A long walk along Central Park West dreaming of the lives lived in the amazing apartments and how I’d find a way to “borrow sugar” from my famous neighbors muuuhhaaaa

-Experiencing Project Nim at the Film Society Lincoln Center… and also experiencing what it’s like to wear shorts 

-Exploring the Lincoln Center campus and running my toes through the roof lawn

– couldn’t resist a little bit of dis…  😉

-and closing the night to the tunes of Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing big band

I hope you all had a great summer weekend as well! xo

Images of a Spring Weekend

A couple of days free in the city, quiet wonderment, discovering new blossoms & new works of art… a small glimpse into a spring weekend From Me To You

Patches of daffodils and bare legs hit the streets

She & I visited “Food for Thought” which inevitability made us hungry– insert delicious lunch at Co., have you been there?

I saw a lot of girls wearing a lot of braids…

The bodegas were in bloom

While seeing his documentary my admiration for the man and his work grew… which also caused a slight obsession with getting a bike… 

Went to the MET to creatively recharge… found her there doing the same.

Pink was everywhere!

So I wore pink too…

….and at the end of the day, walking back home, I found some lovers in Central Park enjoying the view and what a view… so I enjoyed it too.

I hope you all had a Happy Weekend!

Images from a Weekend~

A visit to the Union Square farmer’s market, a stop by The Strand to look at gardening books, a walk through Fishs Eddy, planting a new herb garden on our stoop, a homemade roast and reading The Bell Jar I found at a thrift store for $3… why can’t it always be the weekend?

All images were shot with my Minolta SRT101 & Fuji 160 film

Images from a Weekend

As mush as we all love warm sunny weekends, sometimes it’s nice to have a quiet rainy one to slow down to. As if the city was rinsing itself of winter I took the time to recharge my batteries for the coming of spring. These are images of the last weekend of winter in New York City’s Upper West Side from the morning view to the coffee and music at home, braving the gale storms to try out 5 Napkin Burger (or as I call it 5 Burgers), a trip to Zabar’s, a new shirt for spring, and a Sunday brunch with my first attempt at homemade hollandaise sauce…
