a weekend in the city…

see MORE
we spent last friday and saturday in new york city as a family. we had meetings most of the weekend there, so we didn’t get to see friends or do a whole lot, but we did shoot some video together when we weren’t in meetings.
we really love that city. don’t worry, dc, we love you, too. but gosh, i think new york stole both of our hearts individually when we each moved there for school as little 18 year olds. so many memories made there in the years that followed. i can’t believe this spring marks 3 years since we moved! time flies… it really does.
ps. the prettiest little snowstorm happened on saturday morning while we were walking through the west village. it was so beautiful. i want to walk through it again.

    even though I don't have much time to click through blogs, I find myself drawn back to yours time and time again. As a mother of three I adore that you celebrate life, family and motherhood. I always leave smiling and in this case, dancing in my chair as I eat my lunch. all the best!

  35. Such a great video. Just wondering what kind of camera you used to shoot it. I need one and I don't know what kind I should get. Do you recommend yours?

  36. Britney

    I always love using video to document trips–it's so much more interesting (and takes up less space) when sharing it with others! We love nyc too–we visit there at least twice a year to see my family while we're living here in Oregon. So jealous that you guys are just a few hours-drive away!

  37. Kristen

    such a fun way to document the trip! E is adorable!!

  38. emily
