Love those Founding Fathers - Poconos

Who could ask for anything better than Presidents Day Weekend in the Poconos?  Well, I guess going some place warm could top it...but since that wasn't an option...the Poconos was the perfect location for a weekend away from NYC.   We rented a cute little cabin deep in the heart of the Poconos.  The whole weekend was spent laughing, relaxing, listening to amazing music, watching movies, playing games until the wee hours of the morning, cooking delicious food, and enjoying nature.  The morning that we left we woke up to a foot of snow.  Oh how we wanted to stay and and play in the snow....but unfortunately, it was time to head back to the city.  

Cruisin down the Westside Highway - NYC

Sometimes NYC throws you a bone and you remember why you love living here.  This winter has been extremely cold, depressing, and long!  Thankfully, we were blessed with a couple days of 60 degree weather last week.  On Friday my friend Joanne, her dog Kaylie, and I took a bike ride down the Westside Highway.  This was my first time riding a bike in NYC and it was so exhilarating!   I felt like a little kid again.  I love sunshine, bikes, and NYC!
