Okay, so I’ve been massively delinquent when it comes to my “A Day in My Life” posts. That’s because the days in my life have been quite busy with me running all over the city, heh 🙂 But with less than two weeks left in spring, I figured I ought to share some highlights from the season with you. Even though work has had me slammed over the past few weeks, I have found some time (and energy) to enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of spring around me, both here and elsewhere.
Early on in the spring, my husband and I took a much needed day trip to Beacon, NY to check out Dia:Beacon. Even though we’re regular visitors to the Hudson Valley, and have taken Metro North on numerous occasions, we still managed to NOT make it to Beacon. I’m so happy we finally corrected that. Dia now rates as one of my favorite museums dedicated to modern art. Here are a few of my favorite shots:
Brooklyn Botanical Garden
My husband and I also finally decided to take advantage our proximity and become members at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I had just enough down time to be able to enjoy the blooming of the cherry blossoms in all their splendor, as well as the gorgeous, fragrant first batch of roses in late May.
For Memorial Day weekend, we decided we really, REALLY needed an extended break from NYC. So we decided to go away…to another city 🙂 Toronto to be precise. We’d heard so many rave reviews that we figured it was worth a visit, and boy WAS IT! Toronto is a fabulous city with so much to offer – we were really kind of overwhelmed with the options. Since we only had a few days, we stuck to some recommended highlights – St. Lawrence Market, West Queen West, Kensington, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Beaches and the University of Toronto. We’re definitely excited to go back again and take in even more.

And finally, to close things out, some shots of NYC in bloom this season 🙂
Definitely looking forward to savoring the last few days of spring and then welcome all the things that summer has in store!
