Hi Maddy! The photos were taken from my apartment building's roof -- it's on East 3rd St between Ave C & D. Best of luck to you in NYC!

Hi Joanna, love this post! I just moved to NYC about 7 months ago. I live around 20th and 1st but have wanted to move to Alphabet City. I am in absolute awe of this view; it's unbelievable. Is it at all possible to share any info about this building? Thanks!!! x

this is amazing. i've been wanting to learn how to surf for almost four years now and cannot get myself to it just because i´m terrified of getting injured or not being able to get out of the ocean once i'm there.

I love the colors. And your space is truly beautiful, I really fancy the mix and match of furniture, while yet it remains so coesistent.

Your place is beautiful and I absolutely love your palette. As an artist, one of my favorite things is seeing other artist's palettes, paint tubes included. Thanks so much for sharing!

Nature allows me to soak in the present moment. It can act as a much needed reminder in a busy day. Thank you for posts like this! The Power of Now book club sparked me to read that book at an opportune time. This new selection sounds great. The photographs with quotes are beautiful.

I actually have this book on the way to me as of right now! I saw where you had posted about it last week, and that's when I ordered it. :) I Love Home and feeling Connected. Your images are Beautiful as always Brigette. My Favorite thing to do is sit in total Silence, look around our home and out the window if I'm inside. I'm filled with Peacefulness and Gratitude. Thank You for recommending this book, I know how much more it will add to my Life. Peace, Love and Happiness to You Brigette!

I wrote a similar blog post on my website- I believe that human connections are everything because the connections are what keeps our souls growing and aching for knowledge. I'm amazed by people's stories and what they can teach me everyday. If I'm ever stuck, sad, or distracted by unimportant matters- I think about the people I've met that have left an impact in my life, and they encourage me to do better even without having to consult them! I'm very happy to see a blog post about this on here. XO.

Great post! Just got a 3 month old English Bulldog a bit over a month. His name is Mello. He loves to perform and show off his quick learning skills for chicken. He learned to ring a bell in just a few days! With no treats at all! May need to make this for him, though. This looks yummy!

Take a picture of the item, then if you loose it you can still look at the picture and the memories will come back to you:) Another piece of advice (may not pertain to you but does pertain to the blog)...try not to attach yourself to things (it is hard when someone has passed or no longer in your life but you have to keep in mind it is not the item but what the item represents). If you find happiness inside yourself you won't need to acquire things for fulfillment and/or happiness. Life is not about what you have it is about the time you have and how you share it with others.

i know how you feel! i've lost three iphones and many valuable things, also my father tends to be very disappointed when i lose things he gave me. It's awful and I'd love to hear more from you on this matter :)
