Bar 28

It was my birthday a couple weeks ago and Bryan gave me the best birthday.  Our lives have been a little too busy this year so my requests were simple this year, a relaxing night at home. Bryan created the best bar / pizza joint Brooklyn has ever seen. Until Bar 28 next year....

Date Night with the Kings

As an ongoing tradition, we always catch the Kings of Leon when they are in NYC and a concert on Valentine's Day is no exception. The night was filled with darts, Thai food, dreaming of the future and catching great music. All in all, 2014's Valentine's Day was a great day this year.

Saying Goodbye in Ontario

Last month, we lost my Grandmother after a battle with cancer. She was such a fighter and such a strong women that fought until the very end. Bryan and I both have learned some many life lessons from this woman and were so blessed to have such a strong relationship with her even with so many miles between us. In her last year of life she traveled to England and New York to attend two of her grandchild's wedding against doctor's orders. We will always cherish those memories of having her there to celebrate some of our family's biggest moments. 

Our goodbye weekend in Delhi, Ontario was exactly what Grandma would have wanted, her family together reminiscing over memories. These photos summarize what a joyful time, a tough weekend was for all of us.

Our Apartment on Apartment Therapy

We had our apartment featured on Apartment Therapy! A friend of a friend knew Andrea, the photographer, and recommend our apartment to her in her quest for more spaces. We were both thankful for the opportunity to have our space captured. It is a lovely time capsule of our home and how fun will be to look back in 20 years and see our first home in Brooklyn? The comments are pretty great as well! We definitely had a few laughs.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope your day is filled with friends, family and gratitude. We will soaking up the wine and turkey with good friends. It will be one of the first holidays that will not be celebrate at our home and I am thrilled to have the day off, but also a little sad about not having the holiday at our apartment as it has become tradition.

Here are some articles that I will use for next year's Thanksgiving prep.

Saveur's menu generator, essential components for any Thanksgiving from the NYT and an NPR podcast on "What is Trending in Food Magazines". 

Happy Thanksgiving from ours to yours.

Sunday Afternoon in Dumbo

After brunch at a friend's Dumbo loft we spent the afternoon enjoying walking around a Brooklyn neighborhood that we do not spend too much time in. It was wonderful to soak up the sun on a warm fall day. Just a few photos from our Sunday adventure. It was great that we happen to have have a tube with some art that needed to be framed that doubled as a great tripod, we never did make it to the framer as we spent too much time enjoying Dumbo.

Sunday brunch corn-fielding!

Sometimes standing is a field feels like laying in bed, you are warm and wrapped in the stillness that surrounds you.
