What Goes Around Comes Around

In Europe it seems as though there are merry-go-rounds in almost every plaza or park. This is all-year. I don't even see this in the summer in NYC other than in ...more

Rules Are Made For Their Own Sake

Whenever I go to a museum I bring a notebook. I always read something that I fall in love with and I need a place to write it down. This is what I found yesterday at the Met: ...more

Afternoons at the Met

I went to the Met this afternoon and saw the most wonderful exhibits. If you are in the NYC area and you love art and fashion and photography, you must make your way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Pictures Generation exhibit and the Model as Muse exhibit. ...more

I Laugh More Often Now...I am More Me.

Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed a fabulous weekend. I did. I spent very little time online which was fine with me. I stare at a computer all week so by the time weekend is here, I rarely want to look at my screen. I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I enjoyed mine. ...more

Rear View Window

I had grown tired of looking through my photos of our trip to Italy in March. I thought I had exhausted all of the "good" photos so I took a break from them and focused on other things. ...more

Mother Nature is Definitely a Mutha.

I've been really bad about posting here on BlogHer.  I love it here so much but with a million things on my mind on a daily basis...something is bound to be forgotten.  I'm over at www.ciaochessa.com daily.  But I promise to do my best to be here too! :) Once again it is freezing in New York City.

Spring, where the heck are ya? ...more

My (Partial) Reading List - Photography

Remember your (summer) reading list growing up? I was always excited to see what would be on it and then I wouldn't get to it until mid-August a couple of weeks before classes started again. Well, I have my weekly reading lists online too. Doesn't everyone? I can't possibly read everything on my blogroll or in my blog reader (and everything that I stumble upon) on a daily basis but I definitely get to them weekly. And even then, I find that I have to catch up on some of my favorites at the end of the month because things like work and life get in the way! ...more

Your Love is Better Than Ice Cream

But your love AND ice cream..or even better...gelato...my heart will explode. Mr. S indulged me and my many cravings...not that I had to twist his arm. While in Italy, I rationalized that I could have gelato for breakfast if it was fruit flavored. ...more

In Her Own Image - THE BOOK - It's here!!
