Before Sunset (Guest Post from Audrey)


Today's post is by the utterly adorable and always inspiring Audrey of This Little Street. Her eye for pretty color palettes and her contagious positive thinking never fail to amaze me.


When we woke up last Saturday morning we had a beautiful fresh layer of snow covering every inch of New York City. The blizzard had moved on, and so we decided we should rally all of our warm clothes and go play with all that pretty white stuff. We came back home mid-afternoon, exhausted but happy, so we could rest. We were done. Or so I thought.
As the sun was setting outside, my wee one (21-months old adorable but determined little redhead) asked me if we could go out for one more walk. "Again" she repeated over and over."Again". I hesitated - we had already had a busy day, and to be honest I was eyeing the couch, a bag of candy & the remote control to turn on my favorite show... but when she brought me her jacket and gloves with a big smile, I couldn't resist.
We bundled up once more. And the minute we were out I realized how much I would have missed out if we hadn't stepped out of the apartment for one more walk. The light was perfect, everything wrapped in shades of white, pink and peach. It was so still and quiet - which, believe me, is a rare thing in New York City! We walked. We played. We made sure we used every single minute we had before sunset. 

So the thing is, what are you going to do today before the sun sets? How are you going to make today count?

  4. How wonderful would it be to have a room the color and feel of a tropical sunset? Also, feel free to send me that cake, although I think I would feel too bad to eat it.

  5. Lovely post Audrey! I pushed myself to go outside today and walked to 8th Street to get an incredible Asian Tui-na massage. I feel incredible both physically and mentally for doing something nice for myself and for stepping outside of my comfort zone!
