we have so much going on our lives here in new york, sometimes i forget to stop and really think about how lucky we are and how much we have to be thankful for. i'm thankful for my amazing husband, chris, who is constantly trying to top himself for the best husband award. my family who is always supportive and loving and there for me whenever i need them, even when they're so far away. my friends who make me laugh, instigate good times and who i can always count on for an impromptu taco party. two cats who love to snuggle and greet me at the door every day and are full of love and personality. a city that never stops and sometimes pushes a little too hard but is still one of the most magical and inspiring places on earth. a job that lets me spread my creative wings and try new things. and that's just the beginning of the list SO MUCH THANKS.
with so much going on (and a bad trend of forgetting to post much) i realized i never posted the pictures from a weekend we spent upstate with friends.
it was a last minute trip - we jumped on with a group of friends that were heading up state to look at houses - but it turned into a lovely little weekend upstate. we cooked great meals, drove around in the convertible, played tennis and did yoga in the yard.
trading weekends full of partying for chill days in the woods makes me think we might be getting old...
chris and i went to missouri this weekend to celebrate my grandpa's 85th birthday. since he's been a farmer his whole life, i thought it would be fun to surprise him with a special cake for the celebration
i made a silo, pigs, corn and a tractor out of fondant, used pretzels for the fence, coconut for the grass and oreos for the dirt
seems like with everything going on and getting ready for the holiday's i totally forgot to post all week. whoops. chris and i are heading to missouri bright and early tomorrow morning to celebrate my grandpa's 85th birthday. can't wait to show chris my family's farm that i spent so many holiday's and long summer weekends hanging out on as a kid. don't worry. i'll take pictures.
