life lately, through snapshots

It’s kind of awesome that it’s already Tuesday, isn’t it? I spent my Memorial Day with my roommate celebrating her birthday with a sun-filled, lazy park day in Astoria. Her parents got her an awesome knife set, which I used to make her, her boyfriend and myself a birthday dinner–until I sliced off the top…

four days in savannah

I’ve been staring at my computer screen for twenty minutes just trying to figure out a way to describe Savannah properly in this post. The only thing that’s coming to me? Obsession. I have never been so obsessed, so quickly, with anything in my life (OK, except for The OC) as I was (and am)…

palm beach: part one

  I’m trying to suck myself out of the post-vacation blue with a few pictures, but truly it’s so hard. Our girls trip to Palm Beach ended up being the best vacation I’ve ever had–there are few things in life better than spending sunny days at the beach with some of your best girlfriends (oh, and one…

  1 & 2. Some of the best views in the city. 3. I’m kind of Nuts for Nuts…go figure. 4. Gangly, tangled trees always seem a bit magical. 5. These two were having the most amazingly serious “bro” convo about girls. Yes, I was eavesdropping. 6. Magnet snaps for sale. 7. We witnessed the…

the fair

Once September rolls around, I pretty much plan my weekends around fairs. Growing up in New England, they were quintessentially “fall,” and one of my favorite things to do (you can see a re-cap of my favorite fall tradition last year here). I took a time out from city life this weekend to head to…
