Chihuly in the Garden

All made of glass
All made of glass...

Yes, we're all made of glass
all made of glass...

{Made of Glass - KT Turnstall}

The NYBG has had a feature exhibit all summer called "Chihuly in the Garden." They installed several amazing glass pieces around the garden for visitors to enjoy. 


We went Saturday to see them at a special "night" viewing time. Wow. Just wow. 

I've always been a huge Chihuly fan, but to see them at night set among the flowers and natural scenes was just spectacular. What Dale Chihuly can with glass is just spectacular. 

This for sure is one of my favorite exhibits that I've seen in my ten years of visiting the gardens!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 39

The Good:
A tradition on Rosh Hashana is to eat fruits you've never tried before or haven't had in the past year. This year I picked up a fresh papaya and dried goji berries. I'd never tried plain gojis and actually really enjoyed them! Papaya...well the verdict is still out.

The Random:
In the latest edition of "seen on my runs" - random rhino statue over by the Fens...

The Fun:
I did two runs in NY over the holiday/weekend. With some serious mileage to cover (7ish and 10ish miles each) I ended up at the Kensico Dam both times. A lovely spot in the county, it was fun to get there by foot along the pretty Bronx River Pathway.

Gardner Museum

Way back when we started
There was a part of me that knew...

One day there'd be heartache
And I would lose myself to you...


{After All - Michael Buble}

I hadn't been to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in years and enjoyed some time there on Sunday.

Such a retreat from the city outside. You really do feel as though you've been transported from Boston to a Venetian palace.

I think my favorite part of the space is the contrast between the light and airy courtyard and the dark galleries that surround it. You wonder from room to room, taking in the art, with hints of lushness and light peeking in from the center.

Amazing to know one woman is responsible for bringing this to our fair city so many years ago.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 38

The Good:
3 weeks until the half-marathon! This past weekend I did my longest run of this training and since the half last year actually! A nice dry run (oh that's a good one after last year's sopping wet race). I am feeling so great about how the race will shape up and am looking forward to tapering and the big day!

The Random:
I was over at the Jamaica Pond the other day and saw this random coconut...with a straw...no idea where it came from but it made me chuckle!

The Fun:
Third grade is off to a great start so far! They are such a sweet and motivated group and I can't wait to tuck into the meat of our learning!
