Body Talk

I’ve recently noticed that my body has been trying to tell me things.

Thanks for the run yesterday. Lungs and Heart told me that they appreciated [...]

Rockefeller Center

We didn’t do many tourist activities during my NYC trip.  But one thing was a must-see: Rockefeller Center, the skating rink, and the Christmas tree! Obligatory self-portrait.

Magnolia Bakery

It’s no secret that I love cupcakes.  I shout it from the rooftops.  I like to eat cupcakes.  Wear items that feature cupcakes.  Smell like cupcakes.
