the other day, i took a walk around our beautiful neighborhood, just me, my baby bump, and my camera (and a frozen hot chocolate because hello!) it felt like a little bit like a dream, maybe because i had no specific place to be and was all by myself. i wasn’t pushing a double stroller and was able to walk at a slower pace, looking around myself, looking up, wandering down some of my favorite streets and other streets i’m not as familiar with. the weather in new york this past week has been on the cooler side, so it felt like a crisp day in autumn and that kind of temperature in the city always brings back to some of my first and fondest memories of new york from my first few weeks living on the upper west side as a freshmen in college. this city is full of so much possibility, so much color and culture, so much life. and it feels like home. i’m incredibly grateful to be here, with my family, living my dream.
a few photos from my leisurely wander around the upper west side, if you’d like to see…

hope you have a wonderful weekend in your own wonderful neighborhood! happy summer, friends.
