family fun times

February 6, 2012 |  Category:   friends life nyc

How was your weekend? It was a very social one for us. On Friday night I had dinner with a few of my talented photographer girlfriends in the East Village and the weekend was packed with day long outings and playdates with the girls, including a trip to New Jersey to visit Nichole and her family.


The photos taken here were from Park Here, an indoor installation in Soho that transforms a 5000 square foot windowless interior into an indoor popup park for the Winter.
I was joking on twitter that socializing is hard work! But I also know that I have a very intense work schedule coming up, so I tend to over-schedule social dates while I can when I have a window of time that is free before I need to crawl back into my hermit cave. I was proud of myself though. I could have worked this weekend and there are certainly plenty of things that I needed to do, but I didn’t. I took a true weekend off. No work, just play.

    Don’t give yourself a hard time about it! No work and all play is good for you. Just ask Jack Nicholson. 🙂

    I think that’s so wise! I have a hard time feeling like it’s ok to spend a solid chunk of the weekend socializing when I should be cleaning, working, prepping for the next week… oh how the list goes on! But each time I spend I get out to see friends I not only feel better, but much more rejuvenated in my overall life and work. Now I just need to do it more often.

    I’m glad to hear that you made some time to relax and enjoy your friends and family. It’s so important to remember and take some time away from work in order to recharge and get ready for whatever challenges are coming up. I can definitely relate. I can also relate to overbooking social events to try and squeeze as much as you can into that “free” time. What often happens for me is that I overbook, making it to only a few of the things that I’ve scheduled. Then I become exhausted and end up going home. That means some time on the couch watching a movie with the cat and really, sometimes that’s all I needed in the first place.
