Instagram Photo of the Week: Gail and Jana Visit The Gates!

It seems like it’s been years (but probably just one) since NYC had a snowfall like this! I found this photo of me with my friend Jana while cleaning out my office a couple of years ago, and made this crappy scan, which I shared on Instagram this past week. The photo was taken in Central Park sometime during the February 2005 run of the public art installation The Gates by French land artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who have sadly now both passed on. Their art, however, lives forever.

Not everyone will agree with this, obviously, as there are many people who prefer the colder months. However, if you’re not in that group, it can be pretty difficult to wrap your head around that mentality.

Decorating is something a lot of people associate with special occasions, such as birthdays or Halloween. It can be fun to put out unique adornments for these events, particularly if you’re hosting a party. People also think about decorating when moving to a new home.
