This has definitely been a memorable week for me as I look back on some of the images that my dear friend Leila Brewster captured of sister and I as we made our way to the start of the NYC marathon last Sunday on Staten Island.  We were so lucky to have been welcomed to stay at a really good friend’s families’ house just two blocks from the start; everyone that has run NYC knows that the waiting before the start is the worst!! Thank you so much to the Abbate family.

I asked Leila to take pictures because I wanted to document the day, which was extra special knowing it most likely was my last marathon with my sister, and was so lucky to have her with us from the minute we got up that morning until we made our way to the coral.

I first met Leila when she shot Abby & Andrew’s wedding last summer at the Ocean House.  Not only is she the most genuine, kind hearted, laid back, person you will ever meet but she is also so incredibly talented!  Leila I can’t thank you enough for this special gift of pictures documenting for me a day I will never forget. Happy Friday Everyone!  Cheers to the weekend.

Friday Wine Tasting….

Bogle Petite Sirah Port Clarksburg 2006


Now that the colder months are upon us I must say that I have become a huge fan of a glass of port.  It just warms my soul on a cold night and is the perfect compliment at the end of a meal when you are craving something sweet but don’t want to indulge in a dessert.  Alot of ports are super expensive so when I discovered that one of my favorite vineyards had released a port under my $20 price point I was so excited.  This is one you will want to try, add it to the Thanksgiving wine list.
