Two Great Things


In my attempt to be more reflective on the little events that occur in my everyday life, I made note of two great little things that happened today.

1. It rained. This morning started off with lots and lots of rain. You may question why this would be listed as a great thing to happen in my life. But here it is: I love the rain. I adore the sound of it hitting against hard services. I can’t get enough of how fresh the earth feels after it’s over. But mostly importantly, when it rains, I feel as if I am being cleansed. I feel as if all the issues and concerns that have been griming my life and blocking my progression are being cleaned away. The rain is always a fresh start. It is a way to begin again.

2. The sun came out. When I first left my house this morning I had a hot pink umbrella on hand to prevent the frizz from collecting on my head. By afternoon the sky had cleared up, the weather warmed, and the sun came out. The vitamin c had me feeling so positive and happy that I decided to take a stroll on Gantry Plaza State Park in Queens City. I could not stop from taking a moment to myself.




Am I the only person in America who was not aware how lovely Hartford was? Hartford is the capital of Connecticut. While I only stopped there for a few hours on my road trip to Boston, it was enough time for me to witness how much effort the people of Connecticut put into creating a beautiful and warming capital.

Every street you walk down is well planned and clean. Every shop you go into is detailed and unique. Not only is Hartford appealing to see, it is also loaded with history. Some of it’s more popular landmarks include The Mark Twain House and the Harriet Breacher Stowe House. The State Capital building is gorgeous and I personally am a fan of the fact that Katharine Hepburn is buried here at Cedar Hill Cemetery.

I don’t think a few hours to grab lunch where enough for me to truly explore and see all I wanted to see. Since I live only a few hours away, I plan on coming back in the spring.


Christmas in the City

IMG_0441[1]One of my favorite things about NYC is how magical it becomes during the holiday season in December. One of the most popular spots to see? Rockefeller Center. Here are a few pics I took the other day.


I will like to note that I actually do not know the family in this photograph. I just wanted a picture of the angels and did not feel like waiting for in the long line of people who all wanted to take a picture at this spot. So snap away I did.

Happy Holidays 2015 Everyone!
