Apologies for any technical difficulties you’ve had accessing Alex in Wanderland this week! Posts have been showing up early, disappearing entirely, and generally just brazenly misbehaving. Hopefully we’ll have things back under control soon, and I appreciate your patience in the meantime.
Greetings from 20,000 feet! I’m currently en route to my next adventure (check Instagram to see where I’m headed!) but New York still feels fresh in my mind. I ended up spending less than twenty-four hours in my beloved Brooklyn, choosing to do the responsible thing and stay Upstate to focus on work for the week instead — a rare show of self-restraint, indeed. But considering I still barely tackled a fraction of my to-do list, I know I made the right choice. There’s no way I’d be able to enjoy the week ahead if I hadn’t. Though I was mostly working from sun up to sun down, I did sneak in some tough workouts, fun Tucker time, and much-needed dinner dates with friends. I also got to celebrate my mom’s sixtieth birthday with her, which was a great party and a wonderful occasion to be around in person for.
In keeping with my nose-to-the-grindstone, er, nose-to-the-laptop theme, I didn’t didn’t take out my dSLR all week. So I hope you’ll enjoy these fun iPhone snaps instead…

LA readers! I’m going to be setting up a reader meetup for either June 19th or 20th. If you haven’t already let me know you’re interested, drop me a note in the comments. I’ll be sending out an email this week!
