2015 Has Arrived!

It’s a new year again, and I feel like it’s an appropriate time to finally post something.  It’s been a crazy few months as I adjust to my new position at work and try to find my footing.  I’m also living with Mr. Librarian now, so every other weekend involves adorable twin boys monopolizing my … Continue reading

And now I’m two!

Happy New Year from ArtGirlNYC world, and happy two-year blogiversary to me!  In keeping with tradition, I want to take a moment to look back at the roots of this blog, started in 2012, to see how far I’ve come.  I feel like it’s become cliched to say “I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions,” … Continue reading

Christmas time in the Big City

Greetings! I am not dead, but adjusting to my new schedule (full time) has taken a lot out of me.  As a result, I have not had a lot of time to think about this blog.  Well, that’s not true.  I think about it and things that I would like to write about a lot, … Continue reading

Hit the 5 Year Mark

They say it takes 10 years to become a real New Yorker.  Well, I’m half way there as of Sunday. I have managed to survive New York for 5 years, and honestly, I don’t know where the time went.  Sometimes it feels like I’ve lived here for a lifetime, and sometimes it feels like I … Continue reading

Changing directions

I have been in a rut for a while now.  Part of the point of starting this blog was to break out of that rut, and in some ways, it has been very successful. I am in a loving relationship with a man who respects and cares for me, and I am really happy.  That’s … Continue reading

Little bit of inspiration

As some of you know, a few months ago I was participating in the Blogspiration meme hosted by Growing Up YA.  Blogspiration has been retired by Kristen, but I have been missing the moment each Sunday to think about what inspires me.  Today I realized that My Life Is A Fairytale That Will Never End … Continue reading


In case you haven’t heard, for a few weeks, Mercury has been in retrograde and making all of us a little crazy and generally off.  See, that cranky feeling hasn’t been PMS or general hatred of the world. It’s been the universe speaking to us!  And as of today, that is no longer an excuse … Continue reading

Happy one year anniversary to me!

Today is the one-year anniversary of the first post on my blog (an important distinction since WordPress congratulated me on the anniversary of my blog a few days ago.)  This is also my 65th post!  I have really enjoyed writing and talking with other bloggers.  I am grateful to every person who reads my ramblings … Continue reading

Jumping on the bandwagon

I have finally watched HBO’s Girls, and all I can say is “when can I watch it again?” It’s a realistic, if depressing, look at the state of New York women in their 20’s, and it made me think about my life a bit differently. I have seen many internet posts and reviews about the … Continue reading

Crazy Houses of Lights in Dyker Heights

Since I moved to New York, I have always heard about the Dyker Heights lights, but because it is so deep in Brooklyn, I never made it to see them.  Well this year, that changed, and damn were they fantastic.  I have to give credit to Mr. Librarian for taking me to see the lights … Continue reading
