New York Botanical Garden

These past few weeks have felt more like April and less like June as the days have been filled with one rainstorm after another. This weekend the rain finally let up (at least during the day), and we enjoyed a beautiful day at the New York Botanical Garden.

The current event that's going on now and started just yesterday is The Edible Garden - a summer-long celebration of growing and eating good food. To kick off this event, celebrity chefs like Martha Stewart (see below...yes, that's Martha!) were brought in to give food demonstrations. We opted out of the $20 fare for the festival and instead walked around the grounds soaking up the green trees + grass, beautiful flowers and time together. It made for a lovely Saturday afternoon. We highly recommend taking a visit!


I've always had a strange obsession with hair. I can't count the number of times I was in trouble for cutting Marie's hair, dyeing my hair with friends (Lindsay + Camille) or giving Jack highlights (sorry, Grandma).

One of the many times I highlighted Jack's hair using the cap / pull through method. I don't think you can even see the highlights.

Eventually I gained some experience and was allowed to cut Nick + Trevor's hair - an event they absolutely dreaded and I absolutely loved. For some reason I could never quite convince dad to let me touch his hair. Now I have a dear husband who finally (after much convincing) let me cut his hair. Thanks for amusing me, honey.
