Rhodie Round Up

Yesterday was the first day that really felt like fall in NYC, and I loved pulling out one of my cozy coats (and not being sweaty by the time I arrived at the office).  But before I officially bid farewell to this Indian summer, I wanted to reflect back on some of my favorite memories from the beach.  We had…

Happy Birthday Beach Baby

I can’t believe my baby girl is 2 years old today!  I also can’t remember what life was like before she was born.  She fills every day with love and light and laughter (and the occasional banshee shriek).  Ever since she was an infant she has been my little cuddle bug, and I am so so so happy that she…
