Dear Friends,

March Madness is upon up and not just for the NCAA. It is a vibrant transitional month as the worst of winter’s woeful weather is mostly behind us and we look forward to welcoming the earliest shoots of spring.  This month we are celebrating our beloved St. Patrick’s Day and will be posting lots and lots of tips and packing lists for Spring Break and Spring Travel.  Please let us know your destinations and we will be helpful with our stylish suggestions. We will also be tracking the trends this month of all the new must-have for spring.   Our Charity of the month is Memorial Sloan Kettering Cycle for Survival. Sign up for the fast paced ride, or to donate to critical research into cancer.

Dear Friends,  Yikes!  It is December already.  The merry month is blowing in with a blast of snow, leaving us to inventory our cold weather gear and to start looking forward to our southern sojourn next month.  I like to pick a Christmas Tree as soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are put away. It is… Read More

Dear Friends, For once in the last many years, I am ready for September! I think it is the unseasonably chilly weather (yes, I love the high temps) that makes me want to get on with it. There are all of the exciting events upcoming in the season. I hope you saw our article in… Read More

Dear Friends,  August brings a bittersweet feeling as the closing of my favorite season is in site.   But the weather is divine, local produce is abundant and everything seems to slow down a bit, enabling us to savory every last bit of it.   Meals with friends al fresco, polo tailgating, afternoons of swimming,… Read More

Dear Friends,  Oops July is one third past and I am just putting pen to paper – or rather fingers to keyboard.  July has been a most active month, beginning in London for a graduation, an inaugural trip to Wimbledon and catching up with friends.   The weather was perfect and I clocked 8 miles… Read More

Dear Friends, June started out with the wedding of my eldest son Adam, so much fun and laughter, love and emotions, family and friends. Vivid and wonderful memories to cherish forever.  As the wedding took place at Coral Beach Club in Bermuda where John and I honeymooned almost 36 years ago, it held even more… Read More

A trip to the newly opened Hudson Yards is on the top of the list.… Read More

Dear Friends,   I have been mostly down south this winter and thus the arrival of March, usually heralded with great fanfare as turning a corner into spring, has lost some of its seasonal significance. As fairly a newby into this snowbird status, I am still trying it on for size.   There is something wonderful about… Read More
