spring clouds

The other day I saw these bright orange fluffy clouds trying to break through the rain clouds... if that is not a sign that spring is coming then I don't know what is.

Happy happy Friday! I'm looking forward to a little (big) CrossFit competition, lunch with this cool lady, and dinner and cake with new friends. Maybe I'll even relax a little?

baggu spring colors

It's finally here.... SPRING! Today I am drinking iced coffee, wearing a skirt (with no tights) and then I received an email from Baggu with their new spring colors. I am *so* very happy.

I'll let you in on the secret to success. The truth is, there is no secret, just show up and do the work that needs to be done. Don't get distracted trying to keep up with everyone around you. Don't dwell too much on the past, and don't spend all of your time worrying about the future. Keep your head down, show up every day and work as hard as you can. If that doesn't bring you success, then at the very least it will bring you respect.

One of my favorite places in New York is Brookyn Roasting Company. I go there once (sometimes twice) a day, and luckily for me it's right across the street from work! They have new coffee roasts everyday and I love trying out their newest ones. They put a lot of care and love into roasting their beans, and it shows in the taste and quality. Definitely a must-stop for coffee lovers in BK.

Don't know about the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, but New York has been feeling like spring the past couple of weeks and I could not be happier. Bring on the skirts, dresses and lightweight jackets!

Today we had a photoshoot at casa Swiss Miss and afterwards headed up to the roof of Tina's building to check out the view. There are really no words to describe the scenery from the top of this Brooklyn building.

egg boats

Friends that like to eat are my favorite only kind of friends. Luckily for me I ate egg boats, drank champagne and chatted with new friends Kristin, Katie and Emily this weekend. Thank you Kristin for hosting & cooking!
