HAPPY OCT + I'm Back!

Hi friends,

HAPPY OCT!  It has been almost a year since my last post, and thanks to a few people asking/still believing!, and my work schedule recently freeing up - I decided to try and start things up again (slowly: ).  Let's go!

NYCHAR EVENTS - Two Fall events I'm planning (so far: ) - Email me to RSVP and find out more details!
  • SAT 10/19 - PUMPKIN EATS (to celebrate the "Sweetest Day", perfect)- We love everything pumpkin, and it's finally the right season to enjoy it in all it's glory! We are going to find and try some of the city's best pumpkin eats - from curry to ravioli to pie to beer and more - come along!
  • SAT 11/16 - THRIFT SHOP + KARAOKE After a certain night of watching all of Macklemore's YouTube videos, we were inspired to have our own $20 thrift shop afternoon and karaoke (in our new outfits, of course).
UPCOMING - I'm planning on going to most of them in the near future!  Let me know if you want to come, and we'll figure out the best date to go.
"Son of a Man", Rene Magritte, 1964
WHEW.  Excited!  More soon: )

Follow along!
