THE HUSTLE

the hustle
sometimes walking through times square still stops me in my tracks. 
even after living here for 10 years.

S U R P R I S E

a few weeks ago katie hosted alison's annual surprise party (yeah, that's a thing and it's pretty funny). it was a much needed late night out with friends, pounds of confetti and vodka punch.

SUMMER WEDNESDAY

Summer Wednesday
okay, so taking the summer off to hang with hazel is pretty awesome. especially when wednesday's agenda includes sitting on a blanket in the park reading and eating italian ice.

OPERATION PACKING PURGE

operation packing purge
it's gonna be a while before we start the real packing process, but in the mean time i'm getting pumped on sorting through our apartment and throwing stuff out. i'm deeming this our 'packing purge'

there's so much stuff in corners and cabinets and closets that's just there because we never take the time to go through it and ask ourselves if we need it or not. i mean, check out this photo for example. it's all medicine that's expired or products that haven't been used in a REALLY long time. 

damn it feels good to get rid of unnecessary clutter.

10 YEARS IN NYC

10 years ago i showed up in williamsburg with everything i owned packed into a small uhaul. i only knew one person, had unpaid internship at Spin magazine and no source of income but was determined to make it work. 

these past 10 have been the best (and at times the worst) years - i've never felt so alive, so alone, so loved and so lost.

i'll forever be in love with new york city, even when i hate it. i feel lucky to have called this crazy place home for the past decade.

MY BABY GIRL IS ONE

somehow the day that felt so far away is already here. my baby girl is one year old today.

i can't even begin to explain the happiness, laughter, exhaustion, and tears that have come with becoming part of our family. she makes my heart so much more full on a daily basis. i'm so thankful to have her in my life.

happy birthday baby hazel.

A FLIGHT TO THE HOMELAND

cancelled flight
we're heading to missouri tomorrow to celebrate hazel's first birthday (and my 33'rd) with family in the park i grew up in.

we'll be spending the week having fun with grandmas and grandpas and cousin's and aunts and uncles and we couldn't be more excited to see everyone again. 

just hope the flight situation will be better than when we traveled in march and everything was cancelled.
