New York Public Library


Just a quick hello form me today. Yesterday I was in NYC for a quick business meeting. I took a quick shot of the NY Public Library as I walked up 5th Avenue. I’ve always loved this building, it’s has such a cheap oakley great presence as you walk by amidst the skyscrapers that surround it.

1. Coneflowers are my current favorite flower. Last week it was Hibiscus, the week before it was Hydrangeas and now Coneflowers. Yes Coneflowers you will be my favorite forever or until next week whichever comes first.

2. Is there anything cuter than a boy in aviators? I. Think. Not.

3. I have a new butterfly friend. He lives near the lake sunning himself all day. I named him Fred.

4. My sister’s birthday was on Saturday and the 3 of us sisters, husbands and few couple friends got a chance to go out for a sunset cheap oakley sunglasses dinner on the lake. What could be better than waitress service to your very own table on a dock?

5. I have another new friend that has laid claim to the outdoor bar we just began building.  I think I will also named him Fred because I’m original like that 😉

Before “owning” my very own 2 year old I never appreciated how obscenely difficult it is to get them to look squarely into the camera so you can see their face. Some of my favorite photos are those where I catch him off guard playing. But inevitable there comes a time when a mom would like photographic proof that her son has a face and is not just cheap oakley sunglasses the back of a head.

Now that he’s talking and devloping his very own real set of ideas and thoughts about things (who said that could happen?) our photo taking conversation goes something like this.

“Nikolas come sit by Mommy and take a picture”

“I don wanna take peekture”

“Come sit please some day we’ll need proof you were 2 years old and you had a mommy”

“Me try peekture, ME TRY, ME TRY!”

“Ok that’s it now I resort to tickling you into submission”

OCNJ 2012 - 5

As much of this is a place to document our DIY projects (which are undoubtedly a big part of our lives) and home improvement tales. I also want this to be a place where Bryan Nikolas and I can come to relive the story of our day to day lives, the vacations, the swims in the lake and sand between our toes.

Gardens Galore in Ocean City, NJ



Ocean City Houses 1

No trip to to our favorite family vacation spot is complete without a walk on Ocean City’s 2 1/2 mile boardwalk. Deemed one of the country’s best by Travel Channel’s for it’s family friendly entertainment which is fun and Gafas Ray Ban outlet exciting but in my opinion the real hidden gem is the 1/2 mile walk starting at Boardwalk mile 0. The row of homes on this stretch is breathtaking, not to mention all of the exquisite gardens that are just begging to have their photo taken.

In my opinion it’s the most beautiful in the morning when the sun is low in the sky, the salt air breeze drifts by and the bicycles are allowed to roam freely on the boards.
