Smith Canteen’s Fruit Infused Water..

The heat in New York City has been a bit unbearable, okay a lot unbearable. On the pro side, our diets now include a mix of iced coffees, Mister Softee and fro-yo.

First Day of Summer..

Happy Summer! This morning as I was making my way out of my apartment building, I came across this note. One of my neighbors left a tray of free flowers for the new season. How sweet? I hope you’re all enjoying your first day of summer with iced coffees, fruit-infused water and ice cream. -jo

Thank You..

Thank You..

I was just cleaning out my desk draw and found some old birthday/college graduation cards written by my parents, brother and dear friends. Naturally, I re-read them all and got overly emotional (of course). Reading through all of them I realized, sometimes in life you forget what you mean to other people and you lose … Continue reading
