Givin' thanks

This Thanksgiving I'm thankful for everyone and everything in my life.  I have the best family a girl could ask for, pretty bomb-ass friends, and am as fortunate as can be.

I'm thankful for it all, each and every day.


Days In

The colder it gets the more time I'm spending inside.  My room isn't as cozy as it can be just yet, but the photos, lights, trinkets from travels, and patterns galore make it more homey.  
It'll get there.


Drunk Train


Sometimes, when you're stuck at the Merrick, Long Island train station at 9:24 at night, surrounded by bros (the forever fraternity), you just have to have a photo shoot.

You have to take a minute from your family-filled day and take snap shots of real life.  Because even though you bring your camera to that family dinner to document (and barely take any photos), it's going to be that night on the platform with your sister you're going to remember.

How late the train was, the discussions we had, the laughs we shared, and all the while being surrounded by Long Islanders waiting for the drunk train.



Photos from October, blog post from November.  Sometimes life is so busy you barely document it.  And when do it is of the little things.  

Sunsets on buildings, pinatas named Bertha, vintage varsity jackets in the park, pumpkins and gourds on the window sill, coconut donuts from Peter Pan Bakery on a Sunday morning, and the flame of the candle that fills the room with scents of an apple orchard.
