may is a busy one in our family
my parent’s anniversary
my mum’s birthday
(also my sister’s and a few great girlfriends…)
so, while there has been a pathetic lack of blogging
we haven’t forgotten to celebrate…
mother’s day was spent on cape
with a lovely little luncheon outside
for my mum, mother-in-law and gram-in-law
my father and i prepared
chicken salad bursting from fresh, flaky croissants
a crisp rose (well, not for me!)
and a lemon-berry tart for dessert
was spent celebrating
this special lady
a bit more
a mini bedroom makeover (more soon on that…)
i just love this high school pic of my mom
i think she looks like ali macgraw!
lots to catch up on here
but couldn’t let another day go by without a shout out to my mum!
i have to say, i was totally prepared to have CRAZY cravings during my pregnancy
but luckily, i’ve had no aversions to anything
and aside from giving into an after-diner scoop of ice cream more often,
all i really crave is milk, ICE water and citrus- anything! citrus!
lunches tend to be a smorgasbord of left-overs, fresh fruits and veggies and fresh bread…
organic milk, avacado, hummus, sun-dried tomatoes, great harvest high five fiber bread, sliced parmesan
happy baby belly!
layered as an open-faced sandwich
simple goodness- ripe avacado with a drizzle of olive oil, sea salt and pepper, eaten right out of itself!
i made a quick trip
to the big city
to sit as a critic
on the parsons senior thesis presentation panel for childrenswear
being in my old stomping grounds always gets the inspiration pumping…
of course, i couldn’t resist lunch at le pain quotidien
still craving another glass of mint lemonade!
all things glam- peonies, vogue and diptyque
capped off with an evening catching up with great girlfriends…
new york at it’s best
back soon, i hope!
