I appreciate mens fashion.
My man is far from mens fashion, but the longer we have been together his interest has peaked. Overall, he is very particular about his comfort level.
I guess I can't blame him... for being honest.
Rooftop visit on the first semi-beautiful, warm spring day in the city.
The wooden water towers resemble push-pins scattered throughout the New York City's skyline that pin point a building. These h20 towers imaged from my rooftop have been a recent interest & inspiration of mine through design.
If you want water pressure, you need a water tower
Today my one grandmother (Nannie) is 90 years old.
She is healthy, hip and ready to celebrate her birthday party in 2 weeks!
Born in the 1920's and still sporting her flapper style sense . . .
Words can't explain what an inspiration she has been throughout my life. One of the most admirable, independent, and sweetest ladies in the world.
Few memories I have:
Her Ferragamo closet/collection... 'til this day.
Visits to Nannie & Captain's in Manhasset, NY (building 'real' igloos & snowmen in the winter | the bay & sailing in the summer)
On my 10th birthday, I flew to New York by myself (remember how cool it was to fly alone?)Nannie took me into the city to shop, have tea at The Plaza & to see Eloise, then a broadway show, CATS!
McDowell Family Reunions @ Seneca Lake, NY
( McDowell Cottage 100th Reunion she rode around town on our cousin's harley)

She is a World Traveler.... and she hasn't stopped traveling yet. Thailand is one of her favorite places to visit, along with these favs: Australia, Antarctica, Guam, Bali, China, Turkey, and Africa. And after my grandfather passed she spends every February in Hawaii. The February after I graduated from college I went with her for 2 weeks...ahhmazing.
She has a photography obsession (a billion photo albums and slides).
She is a chocaholic (fudge is her fav).
She has a shopping addiction.
I was born on her and my grandfathers anniversary.
Lately, we cheers with vodka on the rocks... I could go on and on with memories.
