Catching up via Instagram: 1/24/16

Hello from WINTER! It took weeks longer than expected, but for the past few weeks it’s been downright cold here in New York City. We were told to expect 6 to 8 inches of snow this weekend – and instead were walloped with twenty-six, making it the second-biggest winter storm in NYC’s history. Needless to say, I didn’t leave the house.

Until yesterday, though, I had been going a million miles a minute all winter. It’s been a busy one. Here’s a little glimpse of what I’ve been up to!

A pile of blankets

Reading the Genesis plan from She Reads Truth

Sipping ginger tea on a cold winter day

When I am at home, I’m typically buried under ALL OF THE BLANKETS. All but one of these were made by my wonderful mother. I can usually be found reading, writing and sipping ginger tea.

Union Square as seen from DSW

One of my favorite NYC secrets: You can get killer views from the shops south of Union Square. This was taken from DSW! Shoes and views.

An Eiffel Tower lamp from World Market

I recently popped into World Market “just to look around” and left with this gorgeous Eiffel Tower lamp (you know, because I’m obsessed with Paris).

The Flatiron Building, New York City

I’ve started taking long walks on my lunch breaks: I get some exercise, it keeps me warm, and it’s free! Last week I found myself near the Flatiron Building, which blows my mind every time.

This is as close as I got to going outside yesterday! While my friends were at the park hurling snowballs at eachother, I was curled up with those blankets, reading and finishing Veep.Snowstorm Jonas aftermath in Crown Heights, Brooklyn

Today, however, is a different story! I trekked to the market for breakfast supplies, and I have to admit – now that it’s warmer and the snow is no longer falling, it is kind of beautiful. And since everything (even church!) was cancelled today, I’m looking forward to a Sunday of reading, cleaning and watching football. Go Cardinals!

P.S. Did you notice the new City Guides page? Now you can access all of them on the left side of the homepage.
