Friday Social: Take a Trip Down Memory Lane

A long time ago, when we were both married to other people, Bobby almost kissed me. Bobby and I were less than acquaintances back then, not even at chit-chat stage.  It happened late one night when we arrived in the elevator bank simultaneously.  When he approached me and I said hello, my breath wreaked of […] Read more…

Friday Social: Decorate Eggs for Persian New Year (Nowruz)

  Wanna hear something funny?  Bobby thinks we’re already married. Back in January, while working on elopement details, I was putting together ideas for the sweetheart table.  I was designing a marker that said “Priya + Bobby, EST. 2017” when Bobby protested.  He insists that it say 2016 instead. Remember my post about self-uniting weddings? Well, […] Read more…

Tried & Tested: Cook a Meal Together

Happy Monday! Just my luck to head back to work after a one-week vacation nursing a cold.  The frigid temperatures combined with wind gusts are what did me in.  I know because I can trace germ paths 🙂 Braving the cold weather on Saturday was totally worth it, though, because we went to see Cagney […] Read more…

Friday Social: Cook a Meal Together

Can I digress first? I need to gush: I’ve had this entire week off from work and it’s been DIVINE! If my alarm went off at 5:30am, it was to catch Amtrak for a day-trip far away from my cubicle and the never-ending stack of invoices that people keep tossing my way. Sometimes being competent […] Read more…

Friday Social: Walk and Chalk

  Who says graffiti is illegal? The weather is still gorgeous in NYC – 70 degrees is the prediction for today.  I find myself not dreading my daily walks with Bono, my commute…anything outdoors, really. If you’re in the mood to do not much at all tonight, here’s a fun idea to mess with locals. […] Read more…

Friday Social: Union Square Holiday Market

  ‘Tis the season, folks! I have to be honest, it’s been hard getting into the holiday spirit with the presidential election results last month.  Only this week have I started going through the motions of securing evergreen, jingle bells and Christmas cheer in my home. But it’s been worth it! Hope is a great soul soother. […] Read more…

Friday Social: Back to School

Labor Day is just around the corner which means it’s almost time for students to head back to school.  A new year, maybe some new friends and perhaps a new romance, too. Even if our school days are long behind us, there’s always room to learn. Perhaps you’ve been wanting to pick up a paint brush, camera […] Read more…

Friday Social: Delaware Water Gap

I’ve got another outdoorsy meet up for you this week! If you’re in the mood to really get away from the city and are interested in more water activities, check out the Delaware Water Gap.  Located on the NJ/PA border, this national park offers 40 miles of the Middle Delaware River to explore, 67,000 acres […] Read more…

Friday Social: Spoken Word and Poetry Readings

  Do you remember being in college and attending a spoken word event for the first time?  You went with your friends expecting people to recite the classics but ended up being floored by the vivid contemporary genre? I do! I loved it!  Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to experience it again. If you’re […] Read more…
