Last week, I had the opportunity to enjoy my last few morsels of vacation with some friends. Getting in a little culture with Bloo at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, wandering around on the east side with Kendra. It was nice to walk around the galleries and get lost on the East Side. It made me realize how busy I had been over the past few months and how much I missed this version of New York. I hope you enjoy the pics!
What a refreshing and lovely weekend! It was jam packed fun in Connecticut celebrating the marriage between my friends Lauren and Brooke. The ceremony was beautiful with Lauren’s father officiating the momentous occasion, quoting scripture and Ghostface Killah. The love was palpable, the food delicious, the tunes fantastic, and new friends were made over the course of the weekend.
A low key rehearsal dinner under the stars and twinkle lights Friday night, allowed us to see the gals one last time before tying the knot. I got to meet the brides’ families and college/childhood friends and trade stories about how we all ended up at the event together.
Apple picking, petting zoo, corn maze and a hayride were the pre-wedding activities I did with Ash Lee and Julia at March Farm. (A check off my bucket list. Woohoo!)
Since I still have limited storage over in my WordPress media, (grumble grumble) you should peep my Instagram feed on the left side of the screen for pics from the weekend!
Here it is guys! The final post from my St. Thomas extravaganza! Not gonna lie, flipping through these photos again, brought the memories right back, as I sit in my hot apartment here in Harlem. I can never fully explain how much fun I had in the Virgin Islands, but being able to celebrate my birthday with my closest friend, was the sweetest thing in the world. Hope you enjoy the pics from the Wing Festival, my birthday in St. John, ferry ride pics and a few more beach pics!
Group pic. Stunning view.
Beach view at Magen’s Bay.
Dranks and dancing…
Paul was the first person to wish me happy birthday
July 4th may have been two weeks ago, but you still want to see the pictures don’t ya? Well, here they are for #AboutLastNight! So fortunate to spend the holiday with new and old friends out in Long Island. The host, Brandon, was great and there was good food, good music, and of course fireworks! Enjoy.

Glen got a little Harry Potter on us with his sparkler.
This week’s Wandering Wednesday features photos of sunsets, friends, and of course city architecture. Starting back with my look up series! Stay tuned for a new page featuring some of my favorites later this month.
PS- Thanks goes out to Kendra for willingly going along with the “photo shoot.”
PPS- So happy to see Emily, after almost 4 years, in Queens a few weeks ago.

Look up: Columbus Circle subway station.
Look up: The clouds just swim along the surface of the windows at the Time Warner Building.
Well, I’m back in the city that never sleeps, in desperate need of sleep.
Vacation is officially over, and as I sluggishly finish out my shift and prepare for a writer’s meeting, I wanted to thank any and all friends and followers for their birthday wishes. Spending the day in St. John and returning to a flood of texts, videos and posts was icing on the cake. Once the fog has lifted, expect to see even more picturesque scenes from my trip. Thanks for being a fantastic host Cynthia! Love you!
Today is my birthday! While this photo was taken last summer in Duck, just know that my outfit is probably the same, but the sand is whiter and the ocean is greener! So happy to be celebrating my 26th birthday with Cynthia in the St.Thomas sun!
Home tomorrow, but until then I’m going to enjoy my last full day of paradise.
