my manhattan: the wreaths are still up, but the resolutions are resolving and revolving.

stoop

still a bag lady

pop up stand

georgio's

chelsea market coffee

lost

it's that sacred time in new york when the decorations are scattered, the trees are finding their way once more to the sidewalk, but everything feels possible with the start of a fresh year and the blistering wind sweeping in off the river.

i'm feeling the newness of this year more than usual. so i put on heels today, have taken to drinking tea when i can--you see i am trying to live as the person i've always wanted to be.

but the thing is: i'm still half-way to a bag-lady. and i still lose things. all the time i'm having just lost my keys or my sunglasses or my metro card, and there i am stooping on the sidewalk so as to empty the contents of my many bags in search of the thing which i haven't really lost, but hell if i can find it.

some things never change. new year or not.

today i walked from downtown (boston) to my apt by the water and felt the same emotions: the energy of a fresh start, the invigorating sense of hope in the wind.

also then couldn't find my keys...that were in my pocket ; )

happy new years!

I love your blog! Happy New Year as well so glad it has been a good start for you : ) Can I ask what the store is in the 3rd picture? And where the place is in the 5th? Would love to check both of them out.

@casey lewis: the jacket is from the Gap
and it really is such a great get!

and

@anonymous: both are at the chelsea market--the store in the 3rd picture is part of a pop-up stand of artists (so i don't know how long it will be there) but the coffee shop is permanent and somewhere in the middle of the building. enjoy!

i love your board on pinterest about the woman you'd like to be- seems like the new year is the perfect time to start becoming that woman. good luck to you; you're strong, so i know you can do it :)

LOVE this. I am constantly losing things that aren't really lost. The harder I try to organize neatly, the more things I "lose." Happy New Year!!

It's so nice to know that I am not alone in the bag lady, schlepping everything I own, losing things and stooping to search the contents of my bottomless purse club. Woo hoo ladiezzzz!

Bonne année et bonne santé!
