  • Sarah and Mitch

  • Kismet, fate or chance, what ever you might call it, cupids bow was most definitely drawn when Mitch sat in the wrong seat on a return flight from a business trip.  That seat belonged to Sarah and after Mitch found his correct seat across the aisle, they chatted during their flight home.  To their s[...]

  • SIPS - The Aurum Manhattan

  • Vernon Duke's heartfelt and melancholy song  "Autumn in New York" is the perfect listen for homesick New Yorkers this time of year.

  • Fall is most definitely in the air!
