Little Moments - May

Spring means a sprinkled Mister Softee.
I stumbled upon this protest in Union Square one afternoon - it mostly consisted of unions. 
Evening runs/walks with Scotty boy. Sometimes, they are few and far between, but we so enjoy the sunsets near the water at Hudson River Park. 
Our hood. The high-rise to the right of the Freedom Tower is Scott's office building. 
Spring flowers in front of a charming TriBeCa restaurant. It's things like this that make me fall in love with our neighborhood every day. 
My dear friend, Tina, who I worked with at J.Crew in Mississippi came to visit the city. We were able to meet up for brunch and had a fabulous time catching up. I wish that woman could dress me everyday. She has such an eye. Thanks for taking the time, Tina! 
This picture was taken a few days after the final antenna was added to One World Trade, making the Freedom Tower the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere and the third tallest building in the world. It now stands at 1, 776 feet in reference to the year of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. That building holds so many emotions. Still blows my mind that our apartment is in its shadows.

The Friday before Mother's Day I did a story at a local flower shop on holiday sales. It was a great, colorful place to spend the day. My photographer bought these pretty baskets for his wife for her first Mother's Day. It was a funny drive back to the station in the live truck turned gardening center. 
The sailboats made their first appearance of the season. Sometimes, I forget this crazy city is an island. 

A Connecticut commuter train derailed and collided with another train during the peak travel time one Friday afternoon. More than 70 people were injured. Thankfully, no one was killed. I spent the next morning in a McDonald's parking lot with the rest of NYC/CT news media doing live shots and getting the latest updates from Governor Malloy's press conference. 
Art (?) on display at Hudson River Park. 
My guy carrying my stuff home from work after a weeknight Chipotle dinner date. Oh, hey honey buns. 
Taking Christmas lights down from our studio windows on Memorial Day weekend. Call me a red neck...but I loved watching those babies light up our small space each night. 
A dear friend invited me to her pool that overlooks the Hudson and New Jersey skyline. It was the perfect day to welcome summer. Take out. Laying out. Hanging out with the girls. Summer, you speak to my soul
