In a year like this, it’s tempting to quote Dickens: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

The worst goes without saying or needing to be identified, sadly, and we can only hope things don’t get worse before they get better. But even in bad times there can be good, and doing things you care about with good friends is the best thing of all. We were fortunate this year to get to do many good things with many good friends, and as the year draws to a close, we’re glad to remember them with you.

Herewith, then, a compendium of some of this past year’s events, focusing on those in which the most interest or curiosity was shown by visitors to this blog. First, some scenes from our out-in-public adventures, in parks around town ranging from Central Park to Washington Square Park and points beyond:

Second, our trips to our favorite rooftop sundeck, the perfect combination of outdoors and yet private:

And finally our indoor adventures, in workout studios and spas and theaters and figure drawing salons:

We love doing what we do and sharing what we do with you. We hope it inspires you to seek freedom and pleasure in your own life — and that if you find yourself in New York when it’s warmer out than it is today, you drop us a note. We welcome all women to join us! Whether it’d be your first taste of body freedom or just a chance to enjoy it for the thousandth time, we’d love to hear from you.
