(growing) family

after my lovely summer baby shower
in little compton
my dear friend amanda
stuck around to snap some family pictures
featuring my 33-week bump
we went to some favorite little compton spots…
town landing beach
(sadly, not a surfing day!)

amanda, we cannot thank you enough for capturing these sweet moments
of great excitement and anticipation
before our little family becomes three (or four, sorry nellie!)

ferns and fashion

last month
on a very grey, chilly morning
i went on a fieldtrip
oooooh goodness… 
have you been?
what a perfect outing for a mid-winter day!
literally, you feel like you’ve walked into a tropical paradise. 
heavenly.
Photobucket
we happened to be there during NY fashion week
with the latest styles and trends overwhelming my reader each day
so i couldn’t help but find fashion in my inspiration behind the lens

is there anything sweeter than a brand new babe?!

my happy place

when a friend called earlier this week
saying she needed the ocean
and that cool salt breeze,
we set a date…
Photobucket
and this morning
bright and early
we headed out

nellie in tow…
Photobucket
and i realized
with a smile that not even my scarves could hide

that i, too
had needed
that beach walk.

that this is my happy place…

Photobucket

and winter really is no excuse to stay away.

we were back in the city by 10am.
and we were
glowing.

(the cup of chai on the way home didn’t hurt either)
