walk on BY

Last week we celebrated my mother in laws 91st birthday.

We went to The Mercer Kitchen a Jean-George Restaurant located on Prince Street in The Mercer Hotel.  When I walked toward our table I heard a thumping above my head.  I realized it was people walking by us, overhead.  Lucky I had my camera with me.

my, how time FLYS!

I can’t believe today is the 22nd of December, and it’s almost 2015!

It seems like yesterday when we dropped off our freshman son off at college and my daughter left for her semester abroad to Australia (we got to visit her in November).

Remember when you were a kid. The school days passed by so slowly, and the summers ran by us full speed. Those days are just passing memories now.

First, I want to apologize for not being up to date on all your posts. It’s not for lack of interest! For some reason, my notification emails are not getting to me. I have looked, I still am following all of you, so not sure what is going on.  It really makes it easy when you have an email to click on! I just don’t get to my reader like I used to. I’m just too busy being busy.

I want to thank all my fellow bloggers for all the support over the years. I have (virtually) met so many kind, smart, interesting and helpful people in this blogging world.

Happy Holidays and a Healthy New YEAR!

Last night I went to a Cher concert at the TD Garden in Boston.  You will never guess who the opening act was.  Pat Benatar.  I know, you’re scratching your head!

Cher, she was fantastic.  Her voice didn’t have the same vibrato she had back in 1999, when I saw the Believe Tour.  But, she is 67 years YOUNG.  Her body still looks great, and she certainly moved and danced on stage.  Even after having foot surgery 5 months ago!  She told us she still could fit into “If I Could Turn Back Time” outfit.  Looks like she was telling the truth!

If you want to see more of CHER, and all the outfits she wore, click on her name.

Here is her set list: Woman’s World Strong Enough Dressed to Kill The Beat Goes On I Got You Babe Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves Dark Lady Half-Breed Welcome to Burlesque You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me Take It Like a Man Walking in Memphis Just Like Jesse James Heart of Stone Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) (performed by background vocalists) I Found Someone If I Could Turn Back Time Believe I Hope You Find It

Who would think that Pat Benatar and her husband Neil Giraldo would appeal to the Cher crowd.

They sang of all our favorites: Shadows of the Night All Fired Up Invincible We Live For Love Promises In The Dark We Belong Hit Me With Your Best Shot Love Is a Battlefield ENCORE: Let’s Stay Together Heartbreaker/Ring of Fire.

They didn’t disappoint.  Her voice is still strong and she certainly hit us with her best shot!

Last Friday the Boston Celtics held an open practice for ticket holders.  I was fortunate to be able to attend and see all the players up CLOSE.

I had a good seat, and I had my camera. My husband took this picture of me, and I made a 3 fps time-lapse movie with all my pictures.

I have gotten a numerous amount of emails from Cartier requesting me to visit their website, for their new ad campaign.   Today I actually did.  I was amazed by the video that they produced.  I really enjoyed watching the behind the scenes footage.  It is in french with subtitles.  The cinema-photography is amazing…click on the picture for a direct link to the Cartier website.
