Flashback Friday: Gallery Girls' Day

Emily and I had an awesome girls' day in Manhattan back in January. We set out to see the photography show Henry Chalfant: 1980 at the Eric Firestone Loft on Great Jones Street. I taught Lee Quinones's son last year and was eager to see so much of his work on display. We spent almost an hour wandering the space, admiring each and every photo. It was an amazing collection! Henry Chalfant happened to be there while we were visiting, so we also chat with him for a bit about his work and process.

We always make sure to eat lots of yummy food on our girls' day. Emily was so excited to try Georgetown Cupcake and I was eager to introduce her to Pomme Frites. We also stopped for pizza at sLICe in Astoria at the beginning of our day.

I can't wait for more girls' days with both of my girls this summer and fall!

40 Weeks

We are officially at 40 weeks and eagerly awaiting baby girl's arrival! The hospital bags are packed, the carseat is installed, and the smell of Dreft fills the air every time we open the nursery closet. I am so grateful that we were able to capture these pictures back when I was 34 weeks pregnant. Franzi, one of the photographers from Deer Baby Photo, did a beautiful job photographing my growing baby bump. We can't wait for her to take photos of our newborn very soon!

Time to eat some more spicy foods and take a long walk... come on, baby!

L'As du Fallafel

I have had many, many cravings throughout my pregnancy ranging from homemade chocolate chip cookies to brussels sprouts with maple syrup. Luckily, most of my cravings can be satisfied very quickly in New York City. You can have just about anything delivered to your door within the hour! But, there is one craving that I need a passport to satisfy: L'As du Fallafel in the Le Marais neighborhood in Paris. Their falafel sandwich is out of this world delicious! If you are in Paris make sure to stop by once or twice for an amazing lunch on the go. The lines are always long, but move quickly and are worth waiting in. I cannot wait to return to Paris in the near future to indulge my many Parisian cravings!


Flashback Friday: Photo Date on the LES

I am back for another edition of Flashback Friday! One of my favorite things to do with friends is meet up for camera dates in the city. My friend Jen and I love picking neighborhoods throughout Manhattan to explore and photograph together. We challenge ourselves to set our cameras to manual mode and take our time capturing the perfect shots as we chat and wander. During this camera date last August we spent a couple hours in the Lower East Side. We stopped along the way for pudding at my favorite bakery, Sugar Sweet Sunshine, and kept our eyes peeled for interesting street art as we walked. I am hoping that camera dates are a good activity with baby this coming summer and fall!

See mine and Jen's last camera date here.

Frenchie to Go

One of our favorite lunch spots in Paris is Frenchie to Go. The cafe is located off of Rue Montorgueil, a beautiful pedestrian-only street in the 2nd arrondissement that is lined with shops, restaurants, and bakeries. We have stopped by the cafe during our last two visits to Paris and plan on returning next time we are there as well! After lunch we always treat ourselves to dessert at Stohrer, the oldest bakery in Paris. Their pastries are so delicious! I highly recommend their eclairs.

Do you have any favorite restaurants in Paris that you would recommend?
