Happy Friday, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by today. How has your week been?
Beautiful fall colors in Pelham Bay Park.
Unfortunately, I’ve been a little under the weather this week. I have chronic shoulder/neck issues and had a flare up last weekend, which led to lots of pain. Then, that transitioned into a migraine, which has been hanging on these last few days. Blah. I’m finally starting to feel better and hoping the upcoming weekend makes up for the last few days. Ever have one of those weeks?
Thankfully, I did sneak in a little fun last weekend. My husband Joel and I took a trip to the Bronx and Pelham Bay Park. The fall colors were absolutely gorgeous! It was a sunny and chilly and felt like the first real fall day.
The park is huge, and we saw the smallest bit of it, so I’m hoping to return again. Maybe on a warmer day, so we can visit the beach!
