Autumn In Central Park, NYC

Central Park Tanvii.com 7 

Last week I read a book in straight six hours on my way back from New York to later into the night. The Arrangement by Sarah Dunn kept me thinking about it's characters for days. The book is about Lucy and Owen, a couple who decides to try having an open marriage for six months. This is not a topic that we hear or read about often and I really liked how Sarah approached it and didn't make you biased toward either of them. It is a frank, engaging and often a painful description of what being married means sometimes. It has some very funny observations about life, love and being parents. Below are few quotes that stood out to me. 

“Life is long. And it’s getting longer for most of us. Most people in this country will have three or four marriages in their lifetime. Each one will challenge them and suit them in a different way. The lucky few, the ones who are willing to work at it, will have a handful of very different marriages, all with the same person. —”

“(on fading passion) Sex was like the can of baking powder she kept on a high shelf in her pantry, something she didn’t need right now but that she knew she could get her hands on without too much trouble.” 

“I'm too busy being the bad guy.” It was one of those things that get said in a marriage, something that starts out as a genuine compliment but turns into a criticism without either party noticing or caring all that much.”

"We all have a strong preference that life should be easy, comfortable, and pain free, but that doesn't mean there's something wrong with life when it isn't those things. It's just life. It's just life and it's not how you would prefer it to be, but that doesn't mean there's something wrong with it."

Moving on to the outfit, this year I got to tick off something on my bucket list - witnessing 'autumn in central park' in all it's glory. I got some beautiful brights shots in a wonderful toasty autumn sun.

  1. That sounds like an incredibly good read Tanvi and that quote about the lucky few having a handful of very different marriages with the same person actually gave me goose bumps. How true is that. I need to see if I can get it on my Kindle, I've been dying to try a new Author and I haven't read anything by Sarah Dunn

    1. I hope you like it as much as I did ... It is a wonderful read. This was my first time reading anything from Sarah Dunn as well. I suppose she is a writer for TV shows and such.

  14. That sounds like a very fascinating book and I'm interested in reading it. NY has been calling my name recently. I haven't back to NYC in several years (I have been to Long Island a couple times). I've been in the city in October and December. It's lovely that time of year, but I really want to go in the spring & summer (mostly to go to Yankee Stadium & Citi Field).

  17. I also never read a book about an open marriage and it seems rather intriguing. I know I'm looking forward to picking it up. Love the look, and all through the photos I keep saying she looks like she is in Central park and I was right.

  28. She walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that’s best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
    Thus mellowed to that tender light
    Which heaven to gaudy day denies...
