They say that second children just go with the flow, and Lila is living proof of this. In the six days that I recently spent with her, this eight-week-old logged 12 hours of sleep a night, dined at adult restaurants, traveled everywhere in the Bjorn, and rarely cried. I adored her flirty smiles (see below) and gorgeous eyelashes, as well as her big brother‘s fascination with new baby “I-Lou”. Congrats Kaitlin and Nick–she is one amazing infant!
Happy Friday! I just gave a walking tour and it was deceptively cold out there. When winter seems to drag on, I like to remind myself of how beautiful snow and ice can be. I shot this while hiking on top of a glacier during an amazing trip to Argentina and Chile a few years ago. On the hike, we spotted clear lagoons, rushing streams, and deathly crevasses. Your monitor doesn’t do justice to just how turquoise that water was–truly spectacular. This ice field accounts for the world’s third largest reserve of fresh water, and is one of the only glaciers in the world that is not retreating. Here are few more photos from an earlier post. Have a great weekend–enjoy the winter weather!

Florida. Land of…retirees, oranges, tax advantages, non-native pythons, and sunshine. Or so I’m told. I recently spent a week at lovely Sailfish Point and with the exception of one day, it either rained or was windy and 55 degrees. I know what you’re thinking, 55? That’s balmy! but it was not what I had envisioned while over packing my bathing suits and flip flops. The weather required a little imagination to entertain three kids under age two, but we managed some beautiful beach walking (amazing shells were everywhere), and fun golf cart cruising–I’ve concluded that a golf cart would be the ideal solution to getting around NYC. It also gave me some quality time with the extended family and a nice little break from my computer screen.
I limited myself to one camera and my 50mm lens on this trip. Here are a few shots from the week. I was immediately drawn to a wooden footpath on the beach, and love the photos that resulted. I’ve always thought that images of children running in mid-stride–carefree, arms flying, happy–depict the essence of childhood. Happy Wednesday!
Happy Friday! I’m posting from Florida, where my family is taking a much needed mini-break from the cluttered chaos of our usual weekly schedule. I thought this image perfectly summed up the need to sometimes just sit. just breathe. just think for three minutes. just look out on the horizon. It’s easy to forget and hard to do, but necessary every once in awhile. Read that magazine, grab a coffee and leisurely sit in a booth with it, practice yoga, turn off your cell phone, go for a long walk with your favorite songs playing, start a good book…the list could go on. Here’s to finding your own version of two Adirondack chairs to recharge your batteries this weekend.
Happy Heart Day! Keeping it simple today with images of my two dear Valentines and my fave flowers, peonies.
