Lots happening here these days. I got some work with this amazing organization, which feels so very morally glamorous. When it rains, it pours (work) in the summer time when it comes to publishing life. It’s bittersweet because as much as I love my work, I also love hanging with the kids when they are out of school. At least – this summer – they have an alley full of kids to play with. In fact, I feel a tiny bit ignored when I do come home and they are frolicking with everyone else except me! But it’s a great thing – it reminds me of when I was young and could just bang out the back door and play with friends until the next meal time.

Here are some pix from ptrotto and inaseow instagram – Enjoy the long weekend everyone!

Ok it’s a little embarrassing that this happened several weeks ago – you can tell by the photos that we were still wearing coats outdoors and the trees still didn’t have any leaves on them!  We’ve been to the Tribeca Family Fest several years in a row, and this time around we got to be part of the cooking session with Angelo Sosa from Anejo!  We learned to put some pomegranate or smoked pumpkin seeds on our guacamole, and of course a street fair isn’t a fair unless Zoe has her face painted.

A couple weekends ago we were back in the Boston suburbs and on ATVs again. Clearly I am lagging a bit on posting photos .. but this springy weekend was one that I couldn’t pass up sharing with everyone. What are YOU up to this weekend?
Have a lovely one!

It seems like only yesterday that these were the tiniest little caterpillars in a jar (a gift from my boss when we realized we purchased the wrong kind of fuzzy critters for a photo shoot). I think all those pink petals on our front walk make the butterflies very happy –

Our lovely Sunday

Mother’s Day was a beautiful balmy day that encouraged us to go to the beach BUT .. our alley tempted my kids to stay.  Neighbors set up a pool, we sat around and chatted, and lounged all day while the kids were happy.  How can a Mother’s Day get better than that?

I found this on pinterest – with no link, so sadly I don’t know who to credit for this amazing image. But the caption was ‘The best gift you’ll ever get’. Amen to that.
