While we may begin the planning and preparation of Mother’s Day, I for one am not looking forward to it.  You see on March 2016, my mom and I were blindsided with the unexpected news of her Leukemia (AML) diagnosis .  We both starred at the doctor in disbelief and while he went on and on about treatment and next steps, I asked “how long?” Six months.

If it’s your first time exploring New York, one of the easiest ways to get familiar with the iconic landmarks of the city is to take a guided tour and that’s where CitySights NY can help. Last week I had the opportunity to hop on the CitySights NY Twilight Cruise (90-minutes) and took in the sights of New York.  Even though I grew up in NY (Brooklyn to be exact!) going on the CitySights tour was a huge treat and is indeed now one of my favorite things to do. ...

With the school year coming to a close for summer break, routines and structures will soon be coming to a close and its indeed oh so bittersweet.  Which means we are now ready for some freedom..freedom to party with friends at BBQS, visiting local carnivals, exploring beaches and playing in the park, way beyond bedtime.
