Top {#Hoboken} Photos of the Week

Written by:

Most days, our hours revolve around a familiar routine: wake up, work out {depending on motivation level}, get dressed, work hard, and repeat. Our daily habits give us a sense of structure, regardless of what your routine may be, and I for one certainly embrace the value of having repetitive structure – which, to some, is considered extremely monotonous for those who embrace spontaneity.

Don’t get me wrong, surprises are always welcome – except when they cause minor panic in my back-to-back scheduling… KIDDING, kinda – but when something comes along that makes me smile, I like to think that I am always one to welcome random acts of happiness with a warm embrace.

Whether it be a turkey shaped appetizer or a simple box of Insomnia cookies on a crappy day, life’s little unexepected joys illuminate the extraordinary of living beyond our routines – and help us to appreciate the uniqueness of each and every day of the year, no matter how mundane our weeks may feel.

We absolutely ADORE that our Hoboken Girl readers are sharing their own daily joys {via #Hoboken and #HobokenGirl on Instagram} with us – inspiring us all to take a break from our routines – and smiling at life’s little happenings around Hoboken!

No better way to satisfy hunger than with an adorable Thanksgiving-themed treat.

{we think a little extra effort goes a long way}

If anyone’s ever doubted the beauty of the seasons in the city,

one look at our city-block colorscape would have them re-thinking….

Speaking of fall folliage, sometimes just a few steps outside can brighten the day:

The Hoboken view of New York City gives us a whole lot to be thankful for!

At first glance it’s just chilly-weather trees,

but take a second look at the unexpected shadows that really make this shot worth capturing

Sometimes, a new angle is all it takes to see the bright side.

Give us a rainy day, and the bus line reminds us of little duckings – don’t you agree?

Until next week,

Genna moved to Hoboken upon graduating from the University of Tennessee to start her Marketing career at HGTV, and is most currently at The Knot in downtown Manhattan. To Genna, there's nothing better than cheering on UT football, soaking in warm sunny weather on her balcony, and watching starry-skied movies on Pier 13. You may have spotted Genna as a customer associate at Anthropologie ...that is, when she's not doing Hot Yoga or punching bags at CKO! Most days, you can find Genna circling the Mile Square on an early morning run or attempting to justify her shopping habits along Washington Street.
