Long Weekend in Cazenovia

Cruised up to Cazenovia for Presidents Day weekend, so Graham could give a big squeeze to Grandma Laurie and Grampa Chris, as well as romp around in the snow and play in sawdust to his heart's content.


Beautiful weather all weekend, warm and perfectly clear. Caz had gotten significant snow all week up until our arrival, so everything was covered in a blanket of crisp white, but we got to enjoy it in the sun.


There was even enough fluff for us to do a bit of sledding...

which Grampa was super stoked about, but G wasn't so sure...

Took a bit of convincing, but eventually Graham loved it!

Rounded out the weekend with multiple batches of cookies from Laurie - always a treat.
And so happy she's feeling good enough to be baking and cooking again. 

She sent us home with a big bag, too, though half were eaten on the drive home.
We couldn't help ourselves. Thanks, Laurie!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy heart day to you all. Hope it was full of love.


Ours was full of glue sticks and very serious concentration. 



Plus one GIANT cupcake!


Happy heart day!

M is for Moving

I haven't posted in over a month. In fact, I haven't posted yet this YEAR, which is weird to say. 2017 has thrown at us a whirlwind couple of weeks so far and we've been crazy busy as we prepare for the BIG MOVE. For those of you don't know yet, and I think that's a pretty small group as it's fairly public knowledge at this point, we are relocating from New York City back to Los Angeles one week from today. That's right, movers will be showing up at our door at 9 am TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY. Which means...


We got an early start, beginning to pack boxes the last weekend in January. Sometimes I feel like we're in a really good spot, and sometimes I'm like AAAGGGHHHH how is all this stuff going to be contained and ready for transport by the 27th? Why does packing always go so much slower than one expects?! I keep making lists of all the things I need to do Tonight, Tomorrow, This Weekend, etc. in order to be ready in time and smugly pat myself on the back for being so organized, then go home and eat mint milanos while binge-watching The Magicians instead of wrestling with the packing tape. LAME.

So now, in true procrastination fashion,
how about some pictures of my cute kid instead of actually packing?
And by cute, I mean naked. Because clothes are overrated.


Nudie reading, nudie legos, nudie chef!
