Be More Chill is HOT!

I am an unapologetic fan of social media.  I know it comes laden with some caustic social downsides, but it is a powerful tool.  A medium so powerful in fact, it can breathe a minor player of a musical back into existence with every tag, share, stream, and post.  Such is the story behind Be More Chill…

Grab This Ree Drummond Recipe and Make Shrimp & Tomato Sheet Pan Supper!

So here’s a question… What if (thank goodness this is only a WHAT IF?) What if you had to choose just one celebrity chef to use as your ONE resource for ALL of your recipes?  Tricky right?  We are so lucky to have so many talented people’s recipes just a click away on our countertops. But, I think if I had to choose just ONE person to follow it would have to be…

Grab this App and WORK OUT

l love summer, but there are a lot of things I miss about city living… Saying hello to 30 people (ok, 30 dogs – truth be told) before 9am, Broadway shows,  running errands on foot, and my beloved ClassPass workouts. All are much further from my door in Montauk. That’s why I was so excited when I found a workout app I can use on my porch…

Summer Reading… Ugh? or Yay!

Summer Reading.  Kind of funny the double connotation this phrase has in our home (and possibly yours?).  For my kids… summer reading!?  UGH. (Though they did end up enjoying their school’s choices – phew).  For me…  summer reading!?!  YAY bring it on!  I love summer reading…

Helping a Friend and Learning from Abigail…

Back in June I ran into a friend on the corner of 85th and Lexington.  After some chatting she let me know she was going in for oral surgery, and for the three following weeks would be on a LIQUID ONLY diet!!  My first thought was to get her a handsome supply of gift certificates to one of the gazillion juice places in NYC.  My second thought!?  Ask Abigail…

Road Trip to Aspen – part II

My friend Jill’s travel to Aspen continues…  Here she provides some helpful tips for a multi-tasking traverse across the country – ticking off miles while savoring mini-adventures along the way.  As most trips should be, this one was as much about the journey as it was about the destination

Oh the Things We Can Learn… When We Listen!

On my niece Abigail’s most recent visit to Montauk it became VERY apparent to me that a seismic shift had occurred in our transactional relationship.  By transactional I mean give and take and what we are exchanging is life lessons….

Grab Your Group and Road Trip! (part I)

Excited to share my friend Jill’s first Grab Your Group and GO guest post.  Jill has been part of my go-to group for 15 years.  She said yes in the early stages of our friendship to the question, “Anyone want to join us in Costa Rica?”, and we’ve been traveling together ever since. I loved following her road tripping travels on FB this past July so much that we invited her to share her experience here. Share away Jill!
