Photo of the Day

I love that Chris is always willing to put up with me taking his photo at odd hours. Personally, I believe that a beard that lovely deserves to be well documented.

Something New

I loved getting married. If I could recreate my wedding every weekend forever I totally would. I'm not a girly girl and shopping is probably one of my least favorite things to do but I really loved buying these beautiful flower hair pins. I got them from Veka Bridal in Nolita. It's an amazing little bridal boutique with awesome dresses and super nice people. Everytime I tried on my freaking fantastic dress I would eye those pins. Eventually, I just couldn't leave without them. Maybe I'm not a lost cause at being a girly girl.

The Aviator

About a year after moving to Brooklyn, Chris came home with these gifts for me and our two roommates. They were these adorable little key chains from Kid Robot in SoHo. They all had the same little character but each was a bit different; one had a jet pack while another rode inside the head of a giant robot. I think it took about a year for Chris' to break. Now he just has a little jet pack left on the keyring and the character has long been missing. I'm not sure if our two old roommates still have theirs but mine has defied the odds and kept together. He's definitely taken a bit of a beating but every time I look at his happy, dirty, paint-peeled face it makes me smile, too.

Photos of the Day

I went for a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge today. It was a bright and sunny day, perfect for taking pictures and enjoying what seems like the beginning of Spring.

This was in Chinatown on my way to the Brookyn Bridge footpath.

These were in downtown Manhattan, near the courthouses and right before the bridge.

I loved this little girl's red coat. She was so cute and stood out so prettily.

I love strange stickers and grafitti. It's just so cool.
