Hey, friends! Happy Friday. Thank you so much for stopping by today!
It has been a pretty uneventful week here at chez Hello Little Home. I've mostly been trying to avoid the miserably hot weather, which means that I didn't do much of anything. Very exciting, I know.
Earlier this week I did take a walk around the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park. I'm lucky enough to live a couple blocks away, so it's my regular route. It went just before sunset, and it was gorgeous. Definitely the best sunset I've seen in a while. Check out my pics below.
