Usually, Summer’s in New York have very similiar feel. They begin when Michael embraks for Williamstown and end when the last day of August comes to a close. In between there’s a lot of alone time to be had, birthdays to celebrate, yoga classes to sweat through and weekends to spend in the Berkshires. This summer is a little different. Things are growing (and fast) and it is so wonderful. Michael is here to play with all season long (that too is so wonderful) and I’ve had friends and family to celebrate and enjoy (again so wonderful)! But all of this wonder leaves very little time to just enjoy. Last post was long, lazy days of Summer but I fear I spoke too soon. My work and social calendars have been exploding and though I am grateful, I am ready for days of nothing. Long days that start with a lone cup of tea and end with nothing more than a light dinner and a kiss before bed. Here’s to taking this week ahead nice and slow.
I finally bought a copy of Darling Magazine – I love their website and their third issue is the perfect excuse to take myself out for a lemonade and an afternoon of reading. (Also, given this weeks theme check out their article on appreciating the relaxing days of summer!)
This New York Magazine article has been inspiring me and my business partner – fighting to be a better Brooklyn Girls.
Have you heard of the We Think Alone? It’s a project by artist/creator Miranda July and it’s all about the separation between our inner lives and our online personas. If you follow the project you received 20 emails from the sent mailbox folders of 20 people (the people include Kirsten Dunst, Lena Dunham, Danh Vo, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and more!) It certainly piques your curiosity!
This TED talk – The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown is so inspiring and compelling. I’ve listened to it a number of times!
I hope you all have a nice long, lazy weekend!
