I know that some people aren’t into the springing forward of the clocks, but personally, I LOVE it. I hate when it gets dark early. It makes me hungry and tired. And in a city where the sun sets when it’s behind skyscrapers and not the horizon, it can get really dark, really early. (Remember back in November/December when it would get dark at, like, 3:45?!)
I will gladly sacrifice an hour of sleep in the morning if that means it will be sunnier later into the night!
I’ve almost always worn watches. My first one was a purple and pink Timex watch that– I can’t believe it– they still make. I wore that thing every day. And then in middle school, I started wearing digital watches, you know, to time math league practice tests. In high school, I had a permanent tan line from my watch because I’d wear it to crew practices. My “collection” of watches really grew throughout college, but recently, I’ve fallen out of the habit of wearing one!
I was having a weird semi-stressful Saturday. (When did weekends become so crazy?) I got in bed extra early with a new book and just relaxed. I have to say, it was kind of perfect.
Because I went to bed so early, I didn’t feel any different in terms of waking up! I actually forgot that the clocks had changed at all… I love that cell phones automatically reset. Now, I have to admit, I will always be thinking, “Oh, it’s actually like 9am…” for about a week. It’s a horrible habit!
This is one of my favorite quotations and I think it’s a great reminder on a day like today:
“Lost time is never found again.” – Benjamin Franklin

Taken on a much sunnier day ☀️🕶️ I used to think I could live somewhere gloomy and rainy, but… after this bout of clouds, downpours, and overall gloom, I’m realizing I wouldn’t last a week. #tuckernucking
I was so excited that @MyMyrtleBeach invited me to come play pickleball with them! I am obsessed with pickleball and had a blast playing at City Pickle, right here in NYC. We brushed up on the rules, practiced some dinking, and got to play a few rounds of the game– it was the perfect way to spend the day because everyone plays at the beach! #ad
I loved watching The Parent Trap growing up and still do to this day. It is one of my go-to comfort movies… There’s so much I love about it: the cast, the soundtrack, and (of course!) the wardrobe. We all have a little Annie James and a little Hallie Parker in us! I’ve always been drawn to Annie’s style, but love the carefree nature of Hallie’s. #parenttrap @nmeyers #tuckernucking

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
