New York City: Part 2

IMG_0056

Central Park is just as gorgeous as I hoped it would be…and much, much larger! (umm hello, cute kissing romantic couple!) The park was packed with people out walking, running, skating, biking, and rollerblading all enjoying the unseasonably warm temperatures. I think it reached about 18C (64F) on Saturday! We both had to rip off […]

Day 3, the final day in NYC! More walking, more exploring, more great food, and more blisters! Eric joked that I had more moleskin on my feet than an ultra marathoner. A word of advice: Do not break in shoes on a trip to NYC! We picked up a few Christmas gifts at FAO Schwarz, […]

My goal for the last few weeks of summer is to spend more time outdoors. This hopefully means more trips to farmer’s markets, dining al fresco, swimming in lakes, iced tea on patios, and long late night walks.

Hey guys! The technical issues persist on!! I thought I lost all of my pictures from the meet-up last night because I went to load them on my laptop and all I got was a memory card error. Gulp. I tried to stay calm because I know Eric would save the day- and he did! […]

Thrive Juice Bar

Once in a while, I come across a restaurant so vibrant and delicious, I want to stake out real estate next door and move within arm’s mouth’s reach. Once in a while, I come across a business owner who has such a passion for what they do, I can’t help but feel inspired myself. [source] […]

True Food Kitchen

On Tuesday, we had the pleasure of lunching at True Food Kitchen at the Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix. Many of you recommended it on the blog and on my Facebook page (thank you!), so we figured it was a safe bet. I later found out that the famous Dr. Andrew Weil (along with restaurateur […]
