Here's To the Wild Ones

Here's to the wild women. The dreamers. The movers. The shakers. In a world of conformity they forge their own path and fearlessly dance to the beat of their own drum and various other cliches.  They dance beneath the moon with stars in their eyes and a fire in their hearts. They relentlessly pursue their dreams. And they do it all in heels. 
We rarely take the time to recognize these souls, those who uplift women and forge the way for independent women. I salute you my sisters and thank you for making a place in the world for outspoken women like me. Here's to the wild ones.

Diner en Blanc Takes New York

This year I was fortunate enough to gain an invite to Diner en Blanc in New York City.  Originating in Paris, Diner en Blanc is essentially a flash mob style party where the guests are all required to wear white, bring their own picnic essentials, table and chairs included, and meet at a secret location that is not divulged until minutes before the party.  Manhattan socialites and professionals alike gathered in their predesignated meeting locations, mine being at Penn Station, and ventured through the streets of New York to the mysterious party locale.  This year's Diner en Blanc was held in the beautiful Bryant Park.  The city served as a spectacular backdrop; he trees juxtaposed against the modern architecture of the city and the historic buildings of Bryant Park created the loveliest venue. We dined on treats brought from home and danced on the marble steps in the park, closing the evening with the release of white floating lanterns.  It was so incredible to be back in the city that stole my heart for such a magical evening.

Coming Home

After taking some time away from my blog to start a collaboration I have decided to come back to my roots and unearth The Tale of the Gypsy.  Oh how I have missed my little gypsies, it's good to be back!  Here's a peek at what I have been up to since I have left.
