To say that my life is a whirl wind of activity lately would be a serious understatement. It's been so busy, but a good kind of busy. I kept putting off writing here because wanted to write about everything that has happened and that list became so big I knew I couldn't write it quickly. Now I think I'm just going to have to give a quick update or people might think I've left the blogging world. So here is a modified update of the last week or two.
1.Last weekend was the stationary so and there were so many, many cool things to see. I will post a few things I loved later.
2. So, so many projects and deadlines my head is spinning so much time was devoted to that! It's October in my publishing mind and focusing on Halloween these past few weeks was a bit odd but very fun!
3. Umbrella #3 in the series. These people came to stay with us for a week!
I'm not sure if I like the color or the sepia...still deciding on that one. I guess I'll wait and see how the rest of the photo's go. ( if you didn't read about this before, I am taking a picture of everyone who visits with an umbrella somewhere in NYC and then I'm going to fill a wall with them)
This is my sister Stephanie, her husband Larry and their baby Creed! If you can't tell he is the sweet baby from below. We did so many things with them! And it was really fun to have them visit.
4. One of the things we did was shop! Larry watched the boys so Steph and I could head out. One of my favorite stores here in Brooklyn is City Foundry. They have a ton of cool letters off of old buildings but they are all really old and super out of my price range. However this week they had some foam core letters made to look like metal that came from Broadway and were priced just right! How cool is that? A big letter S from an old Broadway set! Perfect for our family right now! Here is a picture of the shop I borrowed from my sister blog.
5. This weekend was the Brooklyn Bridges 125 Birthday! So to celebrate they had a bunch of activities in the park next to it. One of them was an outdoor showing of Enchanted. Here are a few pictures so you can see how cool it was!
Lying on an old flannel blanket with Grant and Cole cuddled up in between Mark and I as we held hands, with the Brooklyn Bridge all lit up( it changed colors to match the movie) a musical playing on a big screen and the Manhattan skyline in the background. Could anything be more romantic or lovely or magical? Not to me. It was an amazing family moment that I know I'll remember forever. I guess it doesn't take much to make me happy if a free movie does it!
Well, that's about it for now! I have to run and get back to work! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
