HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER! We had a long winter. Longer than I hoped it would be but I won’t complain cause this heat is kicking my butt and its only the first day. I am literally sitting in front of the fan singing my favorite songs. Yes I do that! I like to hear my alto voice with a raspy fan untone. DON”T Judge me. Besides my vocals I managed to continue blogging. YAyyy!!!
Today I took it easy. Played with my kids and listened to music. I also started looking up things to do for the summer. Though there are a lot of things to actually do. There are also a lot of FREE things to get into. Just like
most some nobody else Free is my middle name. And I love all thing Pro Bono.
I decided that you deserve to try the free things that I will be getting into this summer. I am NYC based so this only goes for those in the NYC area.
First off let me tell you how much I love beaches. When I get some good money my goal is to have a nice place near a beach. Oceanviews and cool breezes. Lets all take a moment and envision that. Wait I think I need more than a moment. Here are the beaches you might catch me at.
Thanx to timeout.com and their article http://www.timeout.com/newyork/attractions/best-beaches I will live at these beaches when I’m not blogging or being a mommy. My favs are:
Jacob Riis Park Beach (Be careful of the Nude section)
Rockaway Beach (They did a good job sprucing it up since Hurricane Sandy)
