Bright Lights, Big City

Yes, I'm still alive...


...but I guess its no secret that my new job is kicking my butt!


I'm officially one month in and I'm not sure if its the grind of the daily commute,
meeting all the new people and traveling around the City
to different locations throughout the week
or learning all the details of my new role but, I quickly realized
that I'm not quite the spring chicken I once was.
As a matter of fact, I'm dog tired by the end of the day.






The minute I get home I just want to spend every minute with my lovelies and the last thing I feel like doing is hopping on the computer and being away from them.

This is the reason I've been missing around Bloggerville lately...the only reason!
I miss posting on my regular schedule and I sure miss making my stops around to your blogs to say my hellos and check in on all your beautiful pictures and stories.

Out of sight is not out of mind for me when it comes to my blog buddies though,
so just know I am thinking of you and will be catching up as soon
as I can catch my breath!

It's Black and White Wednesday
To see some fabulous images, join in the fun over at

    Love and blessings,

  4. These are pretty shots. especially the building with the fire escapes.

  5. Love your shots of your beautiful city- it looks so exciting!

  6. Oh how I miss NYC. These pictures make me want to jump on a plane right now and visit. Love the architecture and composition of the buildings. I think the b&w really adds to the appeal.

    Hope you're enjoying your new job. I envy you being able to go out into the "real" world and spend time with "adults" each day. I so miss that at times. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love being a SAHM but there definitely are days I miss what your life is all about.

    Happy Wednesday!

  7. I love that picture of you!! You look pretty smiley for someone that's no enjoying her city commute ;o) You totally blend in with the fabulousness of the city!!

    Love you & Miss You!!!

  8. You sooo have it. Just hang in there. Once you get back into your groove, you will blow them away at your new job.
    I love NYC. It's been a long time since I was there. Your photos take me back.

  9. Ahh....now that was a treat. First out - a smiling beautiful face despite the fatique. I always love to see a little glimpse of how you are behind the words.

    What great shots of this fabulous city that is kicking your butt. I love them all (just not what it;s doing ot you). Especially that doorway. They all really work magic in black and white.

    Hang in there darlin' - you'll find your stride.

    I know what you mean about hating to get on the computer at the end of the day! Sometimes I just can't do it!

  13. Those are some beautiful pictures! I totally understand just wanting to crash and spend time with family instead of blogging ... I don't even have an outside-the-home job, and I feel that way a lot, too!
