Williamsburg, 2015

A busy week: it's finally (almost, sort of) warm enough to walk out without a coat, but I'll take it. I've seen blocks of the neighborhood I haven't seen in months! So that's something to celebrate.

We've been continuing our weekend tradition of heading to random pizza joints with the kids, this time to Patrizia's, which was very old school. And we checked out a new wine bar, The Camlin, which seems lovely.

Catching up with friends from various eras of my life and feeling grateful for crocuses (croci?) peeking out through the ground here and there, even while there are still the odd snowflakes in the air.

Williamsburg, 2015

Perusing the Brooklyn wildlife and trying to enjoy the last (I sure hope it's the last) snow of the season...

Axel, 2015

We went to the Children's Museum of the Arts over the weekend, plus pizza at Houdini's in Ridgewood.

I also finished The Goldfinch (a year and a half after I started it), and watched Boyhood and Tracks. So....If you're looking for cultural recommendations that are at least a year out of date, you've come to the right place!

Axel, 2015

We are back in Brooklyn and Axel is seriously busy. I think he had some fun adventures on our trip but he really is happy to have been reunited with his toys, classes, routine, and friends.

Eleuthera, 2015

I was back in an office today, in Midtown, with views of gleaming skyscrapers and everyone bustling through the streets in a grand mood because it's 50 degrees here. It's very surreal to be back, but I am feeling quite positive about the next few months and spring in the city.

We did so much organizing before this trip, and schlepping of gear, and baby carrying, and getting up at all hours with babies who were not in their usual beds, but truly it was so worthwhile. I feel like both boys grew about two inches and that their understanding of the world expanded immensely. I'm gad to suffer from the travel bug, even when a saner person might decide to stick closer to home with two toddlers.

It was good to be reminded that there are other places out there, beyond the hustle and hassle of New York. And it's always a pleasant surprise to come home and find that I still love it tremendously. Still, I am sad to be back in a cubicle, even if it's just for a short project. I loved being outside from nearly dawn 'til dusk and so physically active all day long.

Here's to hoping this warm-ish spell lasts and we can start going for long family walks and adventures again here.

I am meaning to write up a little guide to our visit, and soon. For now I'm holding down the fort while Will is away on a work trip and am busy settling back in at home.

A Few More

Bahamas, 2015

We are on solid ground in Brooklyn, still shaking sand from our suitcases and feeling sort of hazy and out of it (in a good way.) I was a little worried I'd be dismayed to be back, but Williamsburg has it's charms and it seems like we missed some nasty storms.

It was a fantastic trip, and although there are always some hairy moments traveling with very young children, it was such a special holiday. I think just seeing all the color lifted me out of my winter rut!

Harbour Island, 2015

We had a gorgeous breakfast at the Dunmore Deli and dinner at The Landing. Oscar ate lots of sand and Axel binged on Curious George so it's pretty much holiday business as usual around here.
