josh is always good at keeping fun things on the radar, and bought tickets before they all sold out to fantasia live in concert at lincoln center with the new york philharmonic orchestra! we took eleanor and samson last saturday while my sister took conrad out on his own little afternoon date (thanks, hannah!). i hadn’t seen fantasia since i was a little girl, and it felt so nostalgic seeing it again up there on the big screen and hearing all that beautiful music! also, side note: the hall at lincoln center where we saw the show is the same one where i walked for graduation from juilliard! i felt really cool for a minute there getting to tell eleanor and samson that this is where mama wore her cap and gown when she graduated from college. they didn’t really care though. haha!
the new york philharmonic never disappoints, and sometimes i can’t believe we live so close to such an iconic staple for the arts such as lincoln center. i feel like i have such history with this particular spot in the city because of my four years of college right there, and living in the dorm there for two years of it, as well as all the countless nights spent outside on the plaza there at lincoln center (since we didn’t really have a proper campus) where i’d hang out with friends (or often by myself trying to figure it all out. HA!) i just love that this is still home. all these years later. and that i’m taking my little kids here!!! because this is their home. even more than it’s my home now. and what a great home it is. so happy to be able to call it that.
we took some photos before and after the show, while we spent some time around the fountain together with papa. if you ever visit new york, don’t miss coming to lincoln center. and try to see some sort of performance while you’re at it! if not music, the opera or ballet is right here as well. you won’t regret it.
she brought “whoo-ey” her owl along, as well as her owl mask!
looking over the crowds below at intermission!
and i thought it was worth pointing out, that eleanor put a rubber band around whoo-ey’s head so they could be matching in regards to the whole headband thing!!!!!!
love this family shot, even though our feet are cut out of frame! (it’s so stupid how much that can bother me sometimes! it really is!)
these shoes are $36, you guys! also, comfortable! which is key.

also by samson!
and not mad for a second that he cut off our feet here because you guys, he’s so little and he’s freaking holding that big heavy camera while also getting us in frame and better yet, in focus! samson, you’re the man!
when they are hiding, but you can still totally see them. haha!
these sweet daddy daughter details! (for those curious, her sneakers here.)
have a great weekend, everyone! we get to celebrate mister samson all weekend long because he turns FOUR on monday!!!!! i can’t believe it! i’m attempting to make a cake that looks like a robot in the morning for a birthday party so cross your fingers it all works out, pretty please!
my red linen blazer, cream blouse, jean skirt (vintage), and black and white sneakers. eleanor’s pink overalls from gap kids, and new balance sneakers here. samson’s scooter is a micro mini and helmet is a nutcase.
