I’ve been loving this crisp fall weather we’ve been having lately. I’ve been making delicious cold weather food (chili, stew, roast chicken) and made the switch from rosé to cabernet. Here are some cool things I saw floating around the web this week:

This past weekend was cold and rainy, and it was kind of amazing. I didn’t feel guilty about staying in and snuggling up with a good book. When it cleared up I took my first Citibike ride, which was such a fun (and fast! ) way to get around the neighborhood. Hopefully we have some more nice fall weather so I can use it to explore even more.

Below are some things that caught my eye around the internet this week. Enjoy!

This week had me in full on crazy mode, and I can’t believe it’s already September! This weekend I’m looking forward to a family party on Saturday and then just hanging out and relaxing. Enjoy your Labor Day, and soak up the last bits of summer!

When I started the blog, I told myself I would have a new Emily’s Eyes post live every Friday. After not meeting that goal three weeks in a row I modified it to every other Friday. And yet between company picnics, time at the beach, and life’s little distractions, I’m writing this one on Sunday. I promise to be better.

Neighborhood Tour: Mattituck, NY

This weekend in New York was hot. Like, really hot. So hot that summer activities in NYC which would normally be enjoyable, like hanging out in the park or taking a stroll, became unbearable.

On these types of weekends, I run away.

I was blessed to be able to spend my childhood summers on the North Fork of Long Island at a family beach house. My siblings and I enjoyed long days filled with swims in the bay, games of running bases, and meals made up of the freshest that the farm stand and the fish market had to offer.

This week flew by. I went back to work after taking a long vacation, and I also managed to pack in a Pure Barre class, the Lumineers concert in Prospect Park, and seeing Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up show at the Beacon Theater, which was so hilarious my face still hurts from laughing. This weekend I plan on having no plans, which is just the way I like it.

In between all of those activities, here are some fun things I found floating around the internet:
