the beautiful things

{things i learned} a week in may

[an incredible 'salumi e formaggi' plate with parmigiano-reggiano, sottocenere al tartufo, gorgonzola dolce lombardia, toasted bread, roasted nuts, and sweet coppa]


[a window display of a Village bookstore featuring Jane Austen's 'Persuasion' at its center]


[a clear dusk through the trees of Central Park]


I can't seem to make up my mind as to which time of the year is the most hectic: around Christmas I always swear I couldn't be busier, summers are jammed with rotating schedules, and both early fall and late spring seem distractingly transitional. I try my best to ignore the calendar and to take the time to notice details and relax when appropriate. The weather was a bit haphazard this week, a mix between rain and humidity or constant sunshine and cloudless skies. Still, I managed to enjoy a sit-down dinner, the view from various streets, and some time in the park.


Let's stay in touch. Follow me through:
