I gave myself a time out yesterday. I've had so much on my mind and the weather finally turned for the better so while my toddler was with her babysitter I went for a long walk and ended up at the High Line. It's one of my favorite places in the city and I've always gone on a weekend when it's been so crowded we could hardly walk and we certainly can't enjoy it's intended purpose of being a quiet, calm oasis above the city. I walked the entire length of it and even sat down on a bench for a while to admire the rooftops above New York and actually have some quiet. I was only out for a couple of hours but when I got home I felt so refreshed. Having that time for myself to just reflect is like a vitamin that I'm usually lacking so it feels good when I remember to take it. It's going to be a beautiful weekend in New York and I plan to enjoy every minute with my sweet family. I hope you have a good one and here are some fun links from the web.
