Scenes from Eric’s birthday trip to The Berkshires. Last year, he surprised me for my 30th with a trip to Hudson, so this year it was his turn. We stayed at the adorable Porches Inn at Mass MoCA and explored North Adams as well as other Berkshire towns - Williamstown, Stockbridge, Lenox and more. The perfect winter / birthday getaway!
Just in case anyone is plotting dates or is a fellow Sag considering dating another Sag, I’d highly recommend NOT having your anniversary, 2 birthdays, Christmas and New Year’s all in the same 2 weeks, which are also the busiest work weeks leading up to year end. All I can say is thank goodness we are getting married in May…I am about to just throw the towel in on all of it. So do yourself a favor and wait at least until Valentines day to make that first move.
A few more favorites from Jack’s shoot last week. I just heard that he started walking today. Though his mom was wanting him to walk ASAP, I was secretly glad he wasn’t fully mobile when we took the pictures - makes life much easier for me!
Good stuff. It’s amazing what yoga and other exercise/movement can do for not only your body, but your mind, and the incredible precision with which they’re able to now pinpoint that with these days. Fascinating!
Last weekend, I reunited with a family friend I hadn’t seen in probably 15 years. I grew up spending holidays with her in Rochester, NY because our grandmas were the very best of friends for over 70 years. Her sweet grandma Joann just passed away last year.
Anyway, when Katie got in touch with me over Facebook to take photos of her 1 year old boy, Jack, I was thrilled! It was an easy and fun shoot - a happy baby and Autumn weather in December in Central Park - what more could we ask for?
Slain Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson’s dog “Hawkeye” lies next to his casket during funeral services in Rockford, Iowa. Tumilson was one of 30 American soldiers killed in Afghanistan on August 6 when their helicopter was shot down during a mission to help fellow troops who had come under fire.
Though there’s more decent restaurants popping up in our area (Red Rooster, Harlem Tavern, Earl’s), options are still really limited. In East Harlem, while we prefer Camaradas or El Paso for the atmosphere, Agua Fresca wins by far in terms of food. Their skirt steak is one of our favorite dishes in all of NYC. It’s great to see them get some positive press. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, be sure to check out this gem!
