Well, hello there! Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Relaxing at Rockaway Beach
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of my link roundups, and I’ve been busy! My husband’s 40th birthday was last Saturday, and we had a party. It was kind of crazy how few people it took to fill up my tiny apartment, but the party was fun nevertheless. Thankfully, he is older than me, so my 40th is still a (little) way off … I’m not ready for that quite yet!
Joel’s favorite musician is Paul Weller. Have you heard of him? Weller’s huge in the UK, but not so much here. He played NYC shows two weeks in a row – once on Joel’s birthday – so of course, we had to go see him (twice!). It was really fun and a great birthday present.
We also went to see The Tempest in Central Park this week. It’s free, but you have to wait in a long line for tickets on the morning of the show. Thankfully, Joel handles that part. It was a great performance, although the people behind us were totally obnoxious and made it hard to concentrate. Annoying!
We’ve also been to the beach, and now I’m dreaming of going back. You can get there on the subway, but it’s a long ride. I think I’d go every week if it was closer!
Anyway, here are some of my favorite posts and a few recent pics!
