{Central Park// New York City}

This Saturday, the skies turned bright blue, the clouds disappeared and it heated up just enough to be able to spend some time outdoors- a welcome change to the pretty miserable weather that we have been having lately full of dark skies, dropping temperatures and cold rain. Adam and I decided to go to Central Park to take advantage of the weather (because we knew it wouldn’t last!). The park was buzzing with tourists marveling at the changing leaves, college kids playing flag football, children playing tag and couples taking romantic strolls. I had never seen Central Park in the fall (I had gone last month when it was all still green), and all I can say is wow! It is beautiful!












{Demarest Farm and Saddle River County Park// New Jersey}

One of the things that I was most excited about when I found out that we were moving to the northeast was experiencing a real fall. Growing up in South Florida, I never really got to experience changing leaves, the need for scarves and chunky sweaters (although we would wear them anyways because… fashion), or other fall traditions.
This weekend, Adam and I rented a Zipcar and took it to Demarest Farm– about 40 minutes northwest of us. There, we took a hayride, pumpkin picked, and ate our first apple cider donuts (which were amazing!).
From the farm, we drove to Saddle River County Park, which we found on a whim, to enjoy the outdoors some more. The park was beautiful. Orange, red and yellow foliage everywhere, ducks and geese enjoying the afternoon sun, and beautiful pathways for us to walk on.
















{Weekend Snaps}

After a pretty hectic week, I was really looking forward to a slow weekend at home. And that’s just what I got!
Some time in the sun at Newport Green Park (and its little beach!).
A tour of the New York Red Bulls soccer stadium.
Good food at Taqueria– their cactus tacos are amazing!
And walks on the boardwalk along the Hudson River.
After such a nice weekend, I feel ready to take on what the week has in store!
