Pretty pumped.
So, I’m engaged. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of making plans, meeting with vendors and packing boxes (we’re also moving to a new apartment). My future hubs is the love of my life (and a hunk who works out every day!), so, needless to say, I’m thrilled. The actual wedding and all of the things that inevitably come along with it have me a little frazzled.

This past weekend, we took a timeout and traveled to Cape Cod to celebrate our friends Jenna and Dan’s wedding. From biking the Shining Sea Highway to strolling the sidewalks in small, sleepy towns, it was the perfect place to relax and recharge.  Plus, Lilly Pulitzer galore!

Here, a few photos from our sporty seaside fun.





Now back in the city, I’ve set my workout routine into motion. I’m psyched to be training with Kelvin Gary and his team at Body Space Fitness. After having written a blog post about Kelvin’s real-life, science-driven methodology and his 14th Street studio, I’ve always felt that it would be the ultimate place to get in shape for what will be a very special day. I’ve committed myself to looking and feeling my best. In fact, I’m striving to see six-pack abs for the first time in my life. When I walk down the aisle, I’ll be 36 and my wedding day is a moment that I always hoped would arrive, though there were points along the way that I wasn’t so sure.

They say that, in New York, you’re always looking for a job, a guy or an apartment. Over the years, I’ve searched for all, often at the same time. The funny thing is that while I was out there trying to find those things, I also found myself.

Can’t wait to share more from my weekly workouts with you.
