short trip

Over the weekend, we went for a short trip to NYC for the store. I need to do a better job at taking photos – after all, this camera is pretty heavy to lug around. We managed to make the most of the little free time we had. Highlights include seeing Jeff, eating brunch at Diner with Fay, Anne, and Jennifer, meeting Megan for the first time, watching The Master, stopping by Beautiful Dreamers and Mociun, catching the ferry from Brooklyn to Manhattan while passengers took turns reading Walk Whitman’s “Crossing the Brooklyn Ferry”, and walking everywhere. On the last day, Beth wasn’t feeling too well so I assisted her while she shot street style photos for Travel and Leisure aka I awkwardly chased down people. We got a couple of nos, but it was a little nice to get out of my comfort zone.

yayoi kusamobile

Hi! I miss posting in this space, but hopefully that will change soon.

In the midst of trying to find a new place, we’ve been purging. But when I saw this Yayoi Kusama tribute mobile by Kim Baise at the Menil Bookstore, I caved and rushed over to buy it. I’ve been a huge fan of her work, and her artist tribute mobiles at the Menil are so whimsical. Here‘s a little about the inspiration behind this piece. Now I’m a little addicted, and I want to gift these to all my friends. You can get custom mobile from her etsy site. Trang is thinking of getting a custom one about Igby.

In school news, I can’t believe this is my 5th year. I’m throwing a big party at the end of the school year if I complete this milestone and everyone’s invited :) I have a good group of kids this year even though the class sizes have grown significantly. Good luck to all you teachers out there.
