The Weekender: Savoring Summer


How summer has come and gone so fast is simply beyond me. Given that I have been traveling quite a bit I’m actually looking forward to this long weekend to relax and savor every single last minute of summer that I can with a little staycation. I’ll be enjoying some nice outdoor spots with the girls (The Gorbals, Galloway Green and Grand Banks are all standard go-to’s these days), day tripping to the Rockaways (hello Rockaway Tacos!), brunch or late night eating at The Egg Shop and who knows what else but I can guarantee you that I’ll be outside as much as possible! Regardless of what you’ve got on tap, I hope it’s fun and while I hate that it’s Labor Day, but there is so much to look forward to in the coming months from fashion week to college football season to fall activities and roundtrips through the Hudson River valley, bring on fall!
