Wallace Collection at Hertford House

I was here, outside, a few weeks ago when we were doing the parks tour and googled Wallace Collection. Once at the site I scoured for tours and talks and here I am not three weeks later with a handful of other women sitting in the research library. I was able to take a ten […]

SQUARES, MARKETS, SWEETS AND MORE

I cannot believe it was this morning that we went to get flowers at the Columbia Road Flower Market. It has been a huge exhausting day 18,867 steps, at least 4 bake shops/sweet shops, a deli or two or more and 5 or six amazing private gardens. The walk to Columbia Road was about ten […]

AUSTIN. DAY 1

I woke up early in our fabulous borrowed downtown Austin condo and set to work on a plan. Big thanks to my friend Kim who sent me some info on what’s going on in Austin today. With that in hand and a need for a grocery, a bakery, and after some research, I added the […]

MapMyWalk

The Sweet Life

Competing for the best, tho i think the last one I’ve been to is always the best….A tiny little shop on the edge of Chinatown, Delancey Street area if that means anything.  They carry their own home made chocolates (yes, tasty) and an assortment of European and penny candy.  I thought it was a good […]

East Village for Dinner

Early in the planning stage for my day, while checking out OCD chocolate, the east village library branches and squish marshmallow I started looking around for dinner spots.  Being a fan of the mac and cheese, and Brad a fan of the cheese plate , I was drawn to Murrays Cheese Bar, and with that the […]

Marshmallows

Squish Marshmallow, oh my.  This evening got a bit confused.  We were to dine on serendipity ice cream, then the discussion turned to what was for dinner after… perhaps Peter Llugar.  But that got set aside when there and every other steak house in town was fullup.  So.. never wanting to miss an opportunity for […]
