If you’re looking for ways to spend a morning in the city, consider visiting the Elizabeth Street Garden tucked in Nolita. It is the perfect oasis between shopping and brunching. Bring a blanket and spend an hour reading (conveniently located near McNally Johnson, if you’re empty handed) underneath a trees or quickly stroll through the .46 acres of green space if you’re pressed for time.
New York City parks and gardens are magical in the summer, but it’s little ones like these that make turning a corner on a crowded neighborhood incredibly rewarding.
The garden offers various events throughout the week and weekend, which you can read about here. Unfortunately, housing construction plans are a threat, but by signing this letter and spreading the news you can make a difference.
What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday morning? Any favorite parks? Let me know.
Now get out there! It’s summer.

Everyone always says time moves quickly, but am I wrong for thinking 2016 is moving very, very, verrrrrryyyy quickly? April? Today? Already? Busyness aside, there’s something MAGICAL about the seasons changing. Every few months I’m convinced the approaching one is by far my favorite, and right now it’s seriously easy to consider Spring time in NYC as being number one.
Come on?! Couldn’t you just sit underneath those blooms forever?
What are you looking forward to most about Spring in the city? Food recommendations with outdoor seating very much encouraged.

Chillin’ with no makeup on…. Is how I’ll be spending Valentine’s Day. Obviously listening to new Drake. His surprise album is what I’ve now dubbed as V-Day Miracle 2015, and I plan on listening to it on repeat through the weekend. Danny and I are both sick-ish. So we have no reason to do anything but spend Saturday in our pajamas. He made a boss avgolemono soup (he introduced me to this Greek magic & it’s my absolute favorite!) and I have magazine reading to catch up on. It’s v cold in Raleigh, but nice (nothing like NYFW cold). And we have kissing to do.
My picks, accordingly.

Thinking about the morning Ashley and I drove with coffee to a field my dad had given me mediocre directions to. We found a civil-war-reinactment event before we found the field, making the latter’s existence seem even stranger. But there indeed were thousands of sunflowers. Thankful for mornings that feel like they’re surrounded by nothing but pure gold and light that only reflects.

March has slowly, painfully, and thoroughly confirmed itself as the worst month ever. Why so much school? Why so much work? Why so much caffeine? These are all questions I don’t have answers to. But hey, there’s more pretty things than time-consuming things. Getting me through deadlines and sleep deprivation: tulips, guilt-free cookie consumption, and yoga. Lots and lots of yoga.
