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!

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.
