The September Agenda

The September Agenda

September seems to be flying by. Since we are right in the middle of the month, I thought I’d share some of the fun things I’ve done so far and a few that are still pending on my agenda.

This is an important month for me as I am supporting a cause that is near and dear to my heart. As you probably know by now if you’ve been following my blog, September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month. I’ve been sharing weekly posts on thyroid topics from how to perform a neck check to a beautiful guest post from a fellow thyroid advocate and friend. I can’t stress this enough…please ask your doctor to perform a neck check at your next appointment. A simple test could save your life, as it did mine!

By far, the highlight of the month for me was my trip to Columbia University, touring the observatory at One World Trade Center, and drinks at Loopy Doopy. If you missed the post earlier in the week, you can catch up here. I’ve also had my second article published on Career Contessa’s site, so make sure you head over for my thoughts on The 5 Best Habits You Picked-up in College (and the Single Worst).

So, what’s left to do this month?

Try: I would love to sample more fitness classes now that I have extra time during the week. I’ve heard a lot about Flywheel, an indoor cycling studio, and noticed when I was out East last that they had a location in Southampton. They also offer FlyBarre, a total body sculpting class, which would be a nice complement to the kickboxing class I already take. Have any of you tried a FlyWheel or FlyBarre class?

See: I keep seeing beautiful photos on Instagram of the lavender fields on the East End of Long Island. Lavender By the Bay in East Marion is New York’s premiere lavender farm. From June to September, the fields are open seven days a week. Guess I better get out there soon!

Do: When I was stand-up paddle boarding over the summer on the Connetquot River, I had great views of the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The arboretum is comprised of many different self-guided walking paths and the property is also home to the Manor House and The Hidden Oak Cafe. It seems like the perfect time of year to tour the grounds and see the beautiful specimen on the trails.

What’s on your agenda this month?



  1. Lavender by the Bay was wonderful but full of bees. We were not allowed in the field! Bayard Cutting Arboretum was great. There was a gardening class that was great and I believe there is high tea served at different times!

  2. First of all GREAT blog! I absolutely love it. Also, are you in NYC? I just moved here 1 month ago. Yesterday was my anniversary 😉 I have not seen these lavender farms in East Marion but I would love to! Thank you for the inspiration. I feel there is SO much to do here and trying to do it all whilst being in graduate school has been tough for me!


    1. Thanks so much, Kelly! I really appreciate your comment. I’m based on Long Island, but go into NYC fairly regularly now that I’m a full-time blogger. Congratulations on your move, graduate school, and anniversary! There are so many fun things to do in NYC. Have a great weekend and thanks again for visiting!
