I have a lot of wants in life.  Particularly at this moment.

  • I want to sleep in late, until I awake feeling rested.
  • I want – I long for – three days with nothing scheduled and no commitments.
  • I want long stretches of time to wander through my beloved home city.
  • I want to spend an afternoon on the couch indulgently reading a book.
  • I want to cool off on a hot, humid afternoon with a Hazelnut Frappuccino.  Who knew you could customize the drink with any flavor you want?
  • I want to hang out in the park on the cool, dewy grass until the breeze tells me it’s time to go home.
And I intend to spend the long weekend indulging in every single one of my wants.
Happy Memorial Day – welcome to summer!!

I love the holidays, despite not being a winter lover.  The holidays are perfectly timed, the hustle and bustle a nice distraction from the fact that it’s getting seriously cold outside.  Christmas is particularly magical, with New York City all decked out in its festive finery.  This season, I chronicled my yearly pilgrimage around town.  Enjoy!!
