^^I've been hitting the gym earlier than normal, with green smoothie in tow. We stumbled upon Orly Genger's Red, Yellow and Blue installation in Madison Square Park one Sunday afternoon. The woman's patience astounds me.^^
 ^^We tried a beautiful little wine and cheese bar in our neighborhood one evening and came home to the sight of fireworks way down our street on the Hudson.^^
 ^^We took Gus for a walk downtown when we were back in Connecticut two weekends ago. A friend of a friend created a jewelry shop that benefits Bangladeshi girls, and had a launch party in Soho one evening.^^
 ^^I grabbed brunch with a sweet college friend on Saturday morning before heading to the Brooklyn Bowl with husband to escape the heat in the afternoon.^^
^^A few colleagues and I tried out City Winery after work. We stopped by Mad. Sq. Eats. on one of the first summer-like days of the year.^^
 ^^My office hosted two days of lunch on our gorgeous rooftop. We had to see The Last Five Years while it was doing a run in NYC, and I fell in love.^^
^^I stopped by some glamorous places for deskside meetings one morning, and we're still thinking about the lovely lantern-lit dinner that we had in San Jose del Cabo during our vacation last month.^^
