How much do we love our pets?  This darling sweet boy passed away a short while ago… and even though you know they will depart more than likely before you…. you take them into your home and heart and love them with everything you have!

 

I love you Amos.

I nearly fainted when I saw images of Michelle Obama in Monique Lhuillier at the White House Correspondents dinner.  I was so happy for Monique, and I thought Mrs. Obama looked stunning!!!

When the weather starts to warm up… a trip to the MoMA sculpture garden is in order.  It’s a perfect midtown oasis after seeing some great art at the museum!!

The Mind of a Chef on PBS.  I LOVE THIS SHOW.  I think about food constantly and adore eating, cooking and all things culinary… so I was delighted to stumble upon this show one afternoon.  David Chang runs around the globe talking to the world’s best chefs (of which he is one) discussing everything from tofu to bourbon.  I wish it had 500 episodes!

Left Bank Books is a store to get lost in when ambling around NY’s West Village.  I think I’ve picked up every book of fiction in the store.  They have an amazing array of first edition and signed books.  There’s always some crazy conversation going on among the owner and regulars… perfect for a Sunday stroll… but I’ve yet to leave empty handed!

Holland and Sherry bespoke

I’ve got a few stores on this post.  This is such a beautiful store located in NYC on Elizabeth Street in Nolita.  It has the most beautiful shirts, fabrics, accessories….  it’s just a great place to browse.  I won’t lie… it’s pricey, but given the quality, it’s worth it!

It’s coming… I know it hasn’t felt like it… but it is coming… the sweet soft days of summer.  I bought this in the cold daydreaming of warm poolside days!! Can’t wait!  How cute is this J. Crew Liberty bikini?

The Frieze Art Fair was so much fun.  I’m lucky that one of my best friends is an Art Advisor and so well-versed in Contemporary Art.  It’s remarkable to see what is happening in the art world at large.  Mission Chinese and a glass of wine went down quite well too!

Sunday morning is one of my favorite meals ever.  I almost always stay in, cook and read the paper.  The breakfast below is truffle-salted eggs, bacon from Dickson’s Farmstand and homemade buttermilk biscuits.  My sister gave me the biscuit recipe, and they are perfect!  I’ll give it to you if you want it!!!  Other favorites are buttermilk waffles or blueberry pancakes.
