2017 End-of-Year Photo DUMP

What joy it brings to look back on a year in (iPhone) photos. This clump of a zillion photos is basically just for me, to look back on the truly awesome and unforgettable, from Cairo and the great Pyramids on New Year's Day 2017 to spending Christmas in Scottsdale with my family before ringing in 2018. It makes it look like nothing bad, sad, or challenging happened the entire year, which of course, is complete hogwash (but wouldn't that be wonderful). I think this is going to be a big year of change. Taking one, two, three deep breaths...

Get Yourself to Bermuda

Flatt's Village, Bermuda

Flatt's Village, Bermuda

90 minutes from NYC - faster than you can say Hamptons - is this little 20-mile paradise, Bermuda. I bet you know someone who went on their honeymoon there 35 years ago - or you're pretty sure that the Bermuda Triangle is where your misplaced car keys, lip balm, and hair ties go. What I really loved is that it's not just a vacation destination like a few Caribbean islands I have visited. People live here, raising their kids and starting companies. Certain families go back hundreds of years. There is a palpable sense of rootedness but also a sexy new awakening. I will  update my guide in the next few weeks with all my favorite finds. I can't wait to get back to Bermuda.
