summer sendoff

After a hard night’s rain wonder | wander | women woke up to a summer washed away.  The light has changed - with the sun rising later and setting sooner.

"Hard Rain's Gonna Fall"

The air is crisp and clear and the nights have a nip now - leaving our skin prickly and cool to the touch. 

With no buildings to block our view and the breeze cooled by the expanse of water it blows across it sure feels like fall is here. 

And so we bid summer goodbye with one final hurrah!

under an expansive sky

This August finds us relocating to a new home. In the midst of a bustling satellite community - one of many that spill out and surround the periphery of New York City - wonder | wander | women have found a pocket haven with room that breathes new life in an uncommonly rare expansive space.

The Township of Weehawken is perched atop the Palisades on the Hudson River and offers magnificent views of the world famous city skyline. Along with the island of Manhattan, it was originally purchased for "80 fathoms of wampum, 20 fathoms of cloth, 12 brass kettles, 6 guns, one double brass kettle, 2 blankets, and one half barrel of strong beer."
