Such Is Life

I don't blog as much as I should about the amazing things I get to do living in New York. Here are a few fun things I've been up to recently.

Seeing the world premiere of Les Miserables with Beck, followed by a Q&A with the cast, including Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried.

Christmas decorations are up! Loving this beautiful tree at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Eloise also loved the museum - she has reached an age where she notices everything around her and is so curious about everything she sees.

Saw the NYC ballet perform the Nutcracker with my friend Alexis at the Lincoln Center.

Hanging out with a special visitor! It was wonderful to see Beverly after almost three years, and meet Hunter and Carter.

Eloise's first time in snow!

Watched the US Olympic gymnastics team perform live in a showcase at the new Barclay Center in Brooklyn.

Thanksgiving 2012

This year I am especially thankful for my wonderful husband, my amazing, beautiful daughter, my loving parents, and both old and new friends. I'm thankful for mine, Alec's and Eloise's good health, and for our situation in life that enables us to live in New York, in a lovely apartment, and for me to take care of Eloise full-time while she's so small.

It's hard to focus on the big picture when the day-to-day gripes set in. I'm taking a moment today to really feel thankful for how lucky I truly am.

Happy Thanksgiving.

My 33rd Birthday

Birthday number 33! I can't believe it. Alec was so great and made a huge effort to give me a wonderful birthday. Unfortunately, both he and Eloise were suffering with a stomach virus, so it ended up being a low key day.

We started with my fave sandwiches and ice tea from Via Quadronne, followed by a stroll through Central Park. We dropped into the Plaza Hotel, and then went shopping at Tiffany & Co.

Hi Eloise! The Plaza Hotel.

Tiffany!

Rockefeller Plaza.

A week later Alec and I were able to go out for dinner, to A Voce in Columbus Circle. It was delicious! I had an amazing pasta dish, cocktail and wine, and a delish dessert. Add into that wonderful company, and it was a really great night out.








My dear friend Alexis was super lovely and took me to lunch at Gramercy Park Hotel for a birthday lunch too. The babies caused havoc, but we had a wonderful lunch just the same.

Eloise's 1st Birthday

A huge occasion - our little Cheese's first birthday! I'm finding it hard to come to terms with my little baby turning into a toddler. 

To celebrate the day, we had lunch at Artisanal, followed by present opening and a cake smash.
