I don't know about your chapter but here in New York, Junior League runs on a school-like schedule which means our year is coming to a close. As always, I attended House Tour with my parents this past weekend. The highlights were a five bedroom, two story apartment on the Upper East Side with an incredibly sleek and chic aesthetic as well as eating lunch on the 9th floor of the Architects & Designers Building in Midtown Manhattan - we sat on barstools up against a floor to ceiling window facing the beautiful Bloomberg Tower. I ran into a few girls I hadn't seen since we were provisionals - it was really nice. Time and again I'm so happy that I made the decision to join this lovely organization. Here I am at House Tour!
As League season comes to a close, I have to make sure that all of my membership credits are in. Last week, I heard about an opportunity to volunteer at Baby Buggy and signed up. This project has nothing to do with my committee and I actually didn't need the credit, but I was intrigued and wanted to help. I'm so glad I did. This charitable organization was founded ten years ago by Jessica Seinfeld and helps provide essentials to New York City families. This morning, myself and five other Leaguers spent two hours sorting and bundling clothes for kids. It was something so small that didn't take much time or effort but the people at Baby Buggy were incredibly gracious. It made me feel good. I'm looking forward to going back. Check it out - especially if you live in the city. Very cool.
My last volunteer project of the 'year' is on Sunday - exercising with kids at a park. I hope the weather is beautiful. My, how the time flies!
