Happy Monday! It feels SO good to be back online and connecting again!
Thank you to each and every one of you who left a comment, sent an email or text to check in on us during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Most of our small town had no power for nearly 2 weeks and I’ve learned that I don’t do very well when I’m cold. Everyone I know has their own story and it was one of the most trying times I’ve ever experienced. Yet, we realize that our journey was one of inconvenience and frustration. There are thousands of people who have had their homes damaged, destroyed or are still without power. I know your thoughts and prayers are with them, as are mine.
Talking about the holidays, which are literally around the corner, may seem trivial, but I find that whatever you fill your mind with is what it will reap. And, right now, I need happy and light!!
As a mom, one of my favorite online sites has been The Land of Nod. Toys, sheets, artwork….they just seem to have their pulse on what childhood should be. Bringing their world to life, they have opened their first NYC Pop Up Shop in Soho! They have shared their list of events with me, so if you live in or will be visiting the Big Apple this season, go visit their holiday fantasy land.
Over the coming weeks, I look forward to sharing my picks for holiday decor, gifts and ways to enjoy the season.
