Since we got back from the crazy fortnight in Asia, it’s been nothing but busy. The most exciting piece of news is we (finally) closed on our apartment. In the last 3.5 weeks, we ran around organizing the movers, painters and floor people (the hardwood floors needed refinishing. We sought quotes for… Continue reading :: Life :: Where do I even start?
In the last 3 years we have moved 3 times; when we were expecting, when C was barely 3 months and again last October. It looks like there’s another one this November when our lease comes up. On Mother’s Day we had a crazy idea and set in motion a plan that could drastically change… Continue reading :: Life :: Change is the only constant

On the last weekend of 2012, we saw some snow and I made encouraged Mr. P to take C out to Central Park for some fun. Apparently whatever they both had on weren’t warm enough and so we spent the afternoon out shopping at Patagonia and The North Face. A few bucks poorer but a… Continue reading :: NYC W’ends :: Snow in Central Park
