Have you ever been to the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island? This year in June was my second time and I have to say, I think I loved it even more than the first. Going to the Mermaid Parade years before was actually one of the first dates Anthony and I went on. Between the crazy mermaid costumes and the hot dog eating contest, you can imagine what was going through my head back then.

Anyway, as I consolidate and streamline my online presence, I didn’t want these happy little slices of summer heaven to get lost in the shuffle.

Next week Anthony and I will be meeting my sister Janet and her girls to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I can’t wait to see those giant floats! How can you not love NY with all these outrageous parades?
