May Days

Williamsburg, 2015

Life is especially hectic in these next several weeks, but then that seems to be a theme. I keep thinking I'll catch my breath after the next hill of work or interruption in the boy's sleep patterns and then I remember: oh yeah, that that will probably happen in, say, fifteen to twenty years.

There are a lot of opposites that are true right now. We are having a wonderful time; we are totally overwhelmed. We love our life in New York; we are over-caffeinated work zombies! We've totally cracked life in the city; life in the city is ridiculous, and how much are these virgin-picked coffee beans?

One thing that's made everything that much easier is the beautiful weather of late. We've had picnics in the park and the boys come home happily covered in dirt. Axel is scooting everywhere and Oscar loves to roam free at the playground. It's nearly BBQ season and we got some new porch furniture and there are birds chirping and horns honking as I type this. Perfection!

We've also done pancakes at Kasia's, our little trapped-in-time local diner, which I think should be a weekly tradition because pancakes seem to cure all ills. Everything is in bloom, everyone is out on the street, and the place has an amazing energy.
