Oja Moon

Bo by Jami Saunders, 2016

Ok bear with me for the photo overload!

A few weeks ago, Bo did a little fashion shoot for Oja Moon, a line of gorgeous cashmere toys and blankets founded by Jami Saunders, with proceeds benefitting Kids of Kathmandu. He's wearing clothes by Kissy Kissy, which is a line of ultra-soft Peruvian cotton baby wear. Gerber baby watch your back.

Send Off

Williamsburg, 2016

There are certain summer weekends when Brooklyn seems absolutely perfect: kids running through the sprinklers and through the grass at birthday parties, all hot and dusty and covered in lollipop residue. We have all definitely packed plenty of action into the last few weeks.

Strange Days

Williamsburg, 2016

A friend posted this on social media and I thought it was so apt. 
"Today I am grateful that I am informed about the world in a far more wide reaching and deep way than we used to be informed. I am both grateful and overwhelmed.
I know logically that all of the news that makes the world seem like it's about to break is not really more than has been happening since the dawn of time. I know logically that humans are on average living longer better safer lives and that we are *mostly* being kinder to each other (on average). But, it's hard to not get caught up in the zeitgeist of fear, hatred, blame and the emotional (not logical) belief that the opposite is true because now we are more aware of the suffering and war. Partially the media cannot run without sensationalism, partially information spreads faster anyway, and partially the slow eradicating of colonialism means a loss of privilege for those who are used to being comfortably on the top of the heap (now they are angry) - I am grateful to know about the world, but also that makes me even more aware of my immense privilege.
Anyway, here's my being grateful to being an adult citizen of the world operating with fewer blind spots than before. Let's all own our adulthood and try to pony-up and fix the world rather than complain or run into isolation and delusion."

New York, 2016

We have just a few days left in Brooklyn before we head north to Maine for a long stretch. It's already getting smoggy and hot here but it still feels good to savor New York summer and all that it entails. BBQs, moon bounces, street fairs, and iced coffee by the gallon.

Last Day

Williamsburg, 2016

School's out for summer, at least for one of our boys! He's grown up a lot since September.

Water Fight

Williamsburg, 2016

I don't think there's anything better than sprinkler season in Brooklyn. I think these guys agree.

Williamsburg, 2016

I've been back at work this week, which feels both strange and good. The bonus to the sometimes off-schedule commute is that I've read two novels, The Nest and Modern Lovers, which is about 100% more than I was able to read in the previous year. And Will and I made it out for a quick drink on the rooftop at Output last night. Progress?
