We have always chuckled at my husband’s special talent. Seriously, he can – and usually does – talk to anyone. It doesn’t matter where he is, what line he is standing in, where he might be going. If he stands next to someone long enough, there is a conversation to get started. A few weeks ago we were in Costco. He commented on this guy’s tee shirt. Next thing you know, he was deep in conversation and figuring out that they knew each other from years back. For the longest...

  I’m afraid I might be single handedly supporting the rejuvenation of the New York economy. It occurred to me recently that I have been out shopping more over the last three weeks than in the last 15 months combined. Restaurants, clothing, gifts, you name it. Although I’m still not comfortable in a mall, I have been able to get comfortable in and out of stores wearing my mask. The past 15 months I have been in and out of supermarkets and the local CVS. Pretty much, ...

  We are beach people. Just getting to the beach and spending a few hours listening to the soft sounds of the water makes a world of difference. A few years ago, we found a quiet beach just north of where we live. Until then we had been driving to the south shore of Long Island which we quickly learned was an investment of an entire day. Don’t get me wrong, the south shore beaches are glorious but we learned, inconvenient. When we found this small beach, we knew we had ...

  As I write this blog, Memorial Day is coming to a close. I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing day with family and friends and talked about how different this Memorial Day was from the last. But I cannot close the day without reflecting on those who have served to keep the rest of us safe. Memorial Day is an opportunity to say thank you to those who served. Generationally, our family patriarchs both served – my father in Korea and Bill’s dad in WWII. My dad, an educ...

Did you ever have that feeling that you had forgotten something? Just a lingering free floating gnawing. That’s how I woke up this morning. I worked late last night and spent the last part of the evening readying to go to the city today. And then, there it was – that thing I had forgotten. My blog! Coming up on our 15th anniversary of blogging, I can count on one hand the number of times I had this feeling. Not too bad I suppose. And PS, thanks Fred. ...

  I have to admit I’m a little anxious. As I write this blog, I am readying to go back to my office tomorrow. It’s time. And truth is, I’m a little excited. I was back over the summer for a while, a few days a week. I distinctly remember that feeling of stepping foot into my office for the first time. It was truly emotional. Sitting at my desk brought just a glimmer of that long lost normalcy. But when November rolled around and, well you all know what that looked like, I...

List making is not only my best organizational tool but it is also oddly the activity that calms my stress. It is as if once I’ve written it down, in some order and with clear intent, I’ve taken the most important step towards completion and “checking it off”. I literally use a program that lets me check something off the list because of that feeling of accomplishment that comes with the effort. I make lists for everything – weekly work lists, shopping lists, lists of que...

  Thanks to David Abeshouse and Paul Napolitano, Gotham’s own sommeliers, I know that I have officially expanded my wine pallet. I have blogged along the way about my attraction to sweet, bubbly, cold white wine. That said, in recent years I have been trying to expand my wine horizons. For those of us who were able to join David and Paul this evening, it was a fun, educational and special compilation of learning, fun and good wine. We learned about the regions that bor...

  If you could travel anywhere, where would it be – as a pandemic wanes? I am so convinced that pent up travel demand is about to burst. Everywhere I turn, someone is talking about planning a trip, or if that is premature, the trip they would like to plan. Personally, I am not quite ready. I’m still adjusting to whatever changes may come from being fully vaccinated. [I hugged my mom this past weekend for the first time in over a year. Now that’s a feeling.] That said...

  So much conversation I hear these days is about reinvention and recreation for your business. My own observation is that coming out on the other side of this pandemic (optimistically) is encouraging all sorts of change. I’ve heard talk about new business directions, closing city offices, expanding areas or markets through tools acquired over the last year. [As a footnote, I’ve also heard much talk about how to get rid of that COVID 15. That is the subject of a differe...
