Scenes From Irene

I’m happy (and lucky) to report that Hurricane Irene managed to swerve her little path around the Upper East Side for the most part. I was awake for plenty of torrential downpouring and some pretty heavy winds, but that was the worst of it where I am. After yesterday’s 16-miler, I was happy to slip […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Being Tired But Perky

I’m so sleepy. Turns out, averaging 5 hours of sleep a night will catch up with you. But who cares that I’m tired? I mean really. A former boss once shared an article with me called “No One Cares How Tired You Are.” So true. Everyone is tired all the time. Welcome to adulthood. With […]

Jumping on the Bandwagon

OK pumpkin people, you win. And oats people, you win, too. For the past month, every blog I read has had at least one (usually closer to 15) post declaring the blogger’s love for pumpkin recipes in honor of fall.
