How was your weekend? I’m feeling so rested and refreshed from my Mother’s Day treat! Marlon made banana chocolate chip pancakes with bacon for a delicious brunch at home, just the two of us, while Tala took her morning nap.
Then he sent me off to the spa at The Conservatorium Hotel for a pedicure and massage. I lingered for a short snooze, some time in the steam room and hammam, and bit of reading by the pool. It was exactly what I needed! I’m feeling a lot better and ready to take on another busy week.
Let me start this new week with some pictures from our trip to the High Line Park in New York. I can’t believe this was more than a month ago!
March was probably not the best time for a stroll on The High Line. It was chilly and wintery, with only an occasional glimpse of blue skies. But even without the sunny weather and fresh blooms of spring, I still wouldn’t have missed a walk on the High Line.
I loved seeing all the different styles of architecture, a mix of classic red brick apartment buildings to shiny new condos in glass and steel.
Built in Manhattan’s busiest industrial district in the 1930s, the High Line was a railway built 30 feet above ground to transport goods directly to warehouses at third floor level. The railway fell into disuse piece by piece over the years, with the last trains coming to a halt in the 1980s. Two decades after falling into disrepair, it was transformed into the popular public park we see today.
It rained most of the time we were there. Tala got antsy in her stroller, so as soon as the rain stopped, we brought her out and took lots of family photos—some of my favorites from this entire trip.
She was clearly happy to be out and about!
