what do you do first once your flight lands in utah?

…why, go for a cupcake run!
…and check out all the new little cupcake shops
popping up around utah!
my sister bekah picked me up from the airport
and we decided we needed a cupcake…
we hit up flour girls & dough boys in american fork and….
because we couldn’t contain our excitement, we also stopped by
the new sweet tooth fairy bake shop in provo.

i think the key lime cupcake at sweet tooth fairy was my favorite.

oooh it feels mighty good to breathe in such fresh air, see my pretty mountains, and be with the family. i love life very much today.

so hello, utah.

hip hip hooray!

i am off to utah to spend a few days with my family.
cannot wait to see my beautiful sisters and isaac!!
{but not looking forward to the winter wonderland out west.
i will miss you, cherry blossoms.}

on friday i took some last polaroids around nyc.
i already miss it.  can’t wait to visit…

new york city, march 2009.

behold the cherry blossoms.

on our walk home from church  today,
we took some polaroids of the cherry blossoms 
lining our tiny street.
we’re living on capitol hill, 
a few blocks away from eastern market.
we adore the historic neighborhood 
and can’t wait to start exploring…
aren’t the cherry blossoms gorgeous?

port washington, long island

last wednesday i had a lunch meeting in long island. 
i took the LIRR out to port washington.
it made me realize i should have ventured out to long island
 more often during all my years living in new york city.
so lovely. and it presented plenty of photo opportunities.
i am so in love with railroads. 
and i decided before i die i’d like to have a picnic on a railroad track
during a sunny afternoon in the middle of nowhere.
i think that would be just lovely.
you are more than welcome to join me…
i’d adore the company.
p.s. we love DC!! (surprise, surprise…)
thanks for all the positive energy, love and wishes 
sent our way this weekend as we moved!
we love you!
