Nyla Winter

Welcome to Nyla Winter: part journal/part family album/part lifestyle blog named after my 2 daughters (if another mini person pops up we’ll be due for a name change, i know).

This space first lived as a personal blog as I tracked my journey into completing my first half marathon, first solo art show, and then evolved when I had my first child, Winter, followed (immediately-or so it felt) by Nyla. As time passed, I started to throw in life hacks, travelogues, event recaps, and a bit of fashion; but one thing always remains true: this is our digital family album for us to someday look back upon as we navigate this crazy thing we called life (yes, cue the Prince song… the other Prince, because that’s my husband’s name too!)

I hope to inspire you to live a full life, to experience new things, new places, and new ways to build your family bonds. You can learn a little more about us here, but in the meantime, thanks for joining us. And don’t be a stranger, feel free to say hi. We’re family here.


No turning back now.

I signed up for another 1/2 marathon.

Never fails that when I need to kickstart my workout routine (especially after the holidays) I sign up for a race. This time we’re revisiting the now super-popular Brooklyn half marathon. I remember running this race in its infancy (it’s inaugural and 2nd year almost a decade ago). Now it sells out in days, is sponsored by Air BnB, has some concerts and events tied to it and is an all-around cool (but crowded) event. I haven’t ran consistently since the Celebration half marathon in Orlando, FL last February so now its time to blow the dust off the kicks and get back into gear. I’m dreading it but it’s for the better. For some personal motivation and inspiration, I’m taking a dive into all those old race reports to see if I can pick up a few tips and pointers for this time around.


Can you keep up?
