It’s Been Too Long

Golden hour view of Downtown Manhattan Hi friends!  I took an unexpected hiatus from writing and taking photos.  After the Summer ended, it seemed like I couldn’t get a handle on any sort of work/life balance.  I have a full time job, relationships to tend to, and just everyday life stuff.  My friend pointed out […]

Reflection

{Walked the streets of Havana, Cuba} It’s been a while since I’ve done a 5 things Laura loves not because I didn’t appreciate all that was going on but the Fall and Winter tend to be busier times.  If there is one resolution I have for 2016, it’s to reflect more.  I believe reflection is […]

Extending Summer

The donuts from Whisk and Brush It doesn’t take very much to make me happy; especially in the Summer.  The beach, catching sunsets, and good food is really all it takes.  This Summer was truly a magical one because I feel like I took advantage of all the weekends and all the moments in between.  […]

Summer Bucket List

Swinging on a rope swing and feeling like a kid again. At the beginning of every Summer, I make a bucket list of all the things I want to do.  It’s super OCD and cheesy but I end up checking off a lot of the items on my list.  With the Summer being more than […]

Last bit of Winter

Taking a curling lesson I’ve been having a hate relationship with NY the last 2 months.  I was trying to stay positive about the long Winter but it was starting to wear on me.  On top of that I was dealing with major apartment issues, was sick for an entire month, and other issues I […]

Winter

Watching the snow fall. By the way that’s the apartment from the show Friends Enduring the Winter has always been a challenge for me.  I am definitely affected by seasonal depression during the cold months with limited sun light.  During the Winter, I try my best to do things to combat the depression.  Some of […]
