{ winter fury }

 winter can be fun and magical
when there are holidays 
and pretty lights
and cozy nights at home
but it's almost march now
...still snowing
and I'm over it
layers and umbrellas
and big plastic boots
and sleeping bag jackets
are for winter
and I want spring
please come soon!

once upon a time I lived in hawaii and it seems like a dream now...

{ times square tourists }

As a new yorker 
it's easy to hate times sqaure

It's always crowded with tourists 
and one of the perks of living here 
is a diet free of chain restaurants

But on my way home tonight 
I started looking around at all the tourists 
snapping photos of the famed city lights.

Such excitement and awe on their faces.

It made me happy.

Times Square is still not my favorite spot in New York 
but I'm going to look at it differently now...
through the eyes of a tourist
here for the very first time.

Because there is excitement and happiness in that 
and a life filled with awe and wonder and first times is a happy life.

{ it's only february }

i love new york,
I really do
but around february every year
I want to escape
I'd prefer a warm beach
but really
anywhere warm
will do at this point
cause baby, it's cold outside
and it makes it hard to get out
of bed in the morning.

{ kangaroo hunt }

i saw many kangaroos in australia when I was there once 
upon a time but I'm not used to seeing them on mountain slopes, 
with skis and cute pink backpacks. random.
