Man……it is REAL cold in New York this week, which makes me miss summer even more so than ever. The seaside, sundress, relaxed aimless stroll on a tree lined street, picnic, ice cream sandwich, lemonade, biking, ocean breeze…..seriously, I can go on and on about it and never stop. You get the idea, I am not exactly a winter person. Period.
Feeling a bit nostalgic for the summer days and a great family trip we took in the sunny SoCal last year…
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope you all had some time to digest the bird, pie, stuffing or in my case, fried chicken & biscuits, that just got stuffed in our stomachs.
This year, we had an intimate Thanksgiving dinner at home with friends, which allowed a “semi-proper” dining setting for a change - if you are like us living at an apartment in New York city, then you know that’s a rare treat. For the most parts, entertaining at home often does not involve an actual sit-down meal as most of our apartments don’t fit any dining table that seats more than 6 nor its chair friends.
Most importantly, at the dinner table being surrounded by dear friends, I was truly thankful for a great year we had. Pishkin seemed to be enjoying a mellow grown-up Thanksgiving night too in her blanket - see picture above for proof.
And I am happy that she is happy.

I just can’t wait no more to show you guys the full gallery of Megan and Mark’s wedding - an opulent event that is nothing short of glamour and quirk, see it here.
It was one magical night, truly.
When hundreds of candles lit up a historical antique-warehouse-turned mansion, the richness of art and history from the surrounding transformed this black-tie wedding into a dreamy fete from Victorian era while the urban New York city background kept the spirits high.
Of course, only a kick-ass team could pull off such loveliness.
