  20. Looks amazing, I could do with a trip to a flea market!

  21. Erica

    Is is wrong that my sole purpose of going to the BK Flea is for the wonderful food!? The sandwiches from Porchetta are to die for!!

  40. i haven't been to nyc yet, and i live a little vicariously through your pictures. i did the same when you were in dc, because i've only been there once and it's one of my most favorite places. i can't wait to experience nyc for myself!

  41. Torrie

    I've been following your blog for over a year now, and I just want to tell you what an inspiration you are–I love your positive outlook on life, your commitment to your family, and your integrity in living your values.

    Just wanted to let you know that you've made a difference in my life, esp. as a blogger :)

    http://autodidacticambitions.blogspot.com

  42. Ha, beautiful. Looks like a good time kind of place. I looove flea markets, but this one looks especially awesome – and I've never been! That's going on the list.

    xo,

    shalan

  43. I'm dying over Rebecca Minkoff's camera bags right now, your new treat is gorgeous!!

  44. I love The Brooklyn Flea! The donuts are insanly tasty, hard to go back to Dunkin' after these. I love the passion fruit ones with the cocoa nibs.

  45. Lisa

    Super cute photos! I'm interested in those moccasins your little ones are wearing. Looks like I'll have an early walker on my hands (8 months) and I can't find anything to stay on her tiny feet. Do these work??
    Thanks!

  46. as always – gorgeous family. and I'm so jealous of your RM bag! Is it the Cupid? swoon.

  47. May I ask, which programme you use for editing your pictures? Or which Font you use?
    Thanks you for answering!

    Nice pictures. i'm so jealous, also want to be there :(

  48. ria.

    your children are so darling! I love flea markets. this one looks like a good one <3

    Here in Milan, Italy, there's a very similar market every last Sunday of each month in Navigli district. I'll post the photos in one the next post in our blog. I hope you'll come in Milan and you'll visit this market.

  51. I love Brooklyn Flea! I want to come back.. it breaks my heart. I was only thinking about how much I missed my time on honeymoon, then I saw your post. It must be a sign ;)

  52. Y

    i love the brooklyn flea!! such great vintasge finds and the best giant donuts ever!

    xoxoxo

  53. Jillian

    Naomi-which vendor did you get the pork sandwich? I'm heading to the Brooklyn flea this weekend and it looks delicious!

  54. Next time you're at the Brooklyn Flea you have to try Red Hook Lobster Pound…they have the BEST lobster roll of your life. Just got back from there a few weeks ago so it was exciting to see familiar booths in this post =].

  55. Courtney

    you have such a precious family. I have my own little 2 year old Eleanor (and my middle name), so just love hearing that the name is making a comeback :-)

    And love the bag. My hubs just bought me my first Rebecca Minkoff and I love it.

  56. Aww that is so great! I love fleas and markets. And your family is so adorable, awawawww.

    And also, I love how you edit your pictures, they're beautiful. What camera do you use?

    Love,

    I saw E's pants at BabyGap and was like, I know those pants! Here is what I am wanting to now-where do the little leather moccasin type shoes come from? My daughter would love them!
    Thanks for sharing your cool finds!

  58. love it all! Such a beautiful family. Also, Samson is growing so fast. Crazy how time flies. I cant believe my little guy is already 6 months!

    Thanks for sharing :-)

  59. Michelle

    i was just there! and saw the donuts! and sunglasses! and posted about it haha

  60. Steen

    I'VE BEEN THERE AND ABOUT HAD A HEART ATTACK!
    it was so magical! i love your pictures! and your family =)

  61. Jennifer

    All of the time you spend with your family seems like such a beautiful adventure.

    You're so blessed.

  62. Love the bag. What is the model name? Looks like the perfect size.

  63. Dough = my downfall. That place is dangerous. And the Brooklyn Flea is such a good way to pass a fall afternoon.

  64. my favorite of the picture of your three loves. eleanor's face is darling!

    also, you used to really make me want to visit The District…and now I really want to visit NYC! your family does a lovely job of "blooming where you're planted" (to use an old phrase)

  65. Coryann

    I have YET been to a flea market. From judging by these photos, I'm sure missing out ; )

  66. Jessie

    How fun! That looks like a must-do when visiting NYC. Those donuts are making my mouth water. Thanks for sharing your cute creative pictures!

  67. i noticed this denim jacket in your last post — i love it, especially the length! where did you find it?

  68. Kelsey

    You're blog is so fun to read! One question, how the heck do you post pictures side by side? I just spent an hour researching and can't figure it out. Would you be able to help?

    Thanks!

    I've been reading your blog for awhile now and I love how you document your family's daily life and adventures through your photos. I would love it if you would blog about this sometime: how you found your own style through photography, what you use to edit your photos, and how you use the vsco cam app. Your photos are always beautiful (both on the blog and on Instagram!), so of course I'm dying to know more. I've actually been playing around with the vsco cam app lately but am not quite sure what to do… or am I just overthinking it? Anyway, I love your style and would be interested in hearing more!

    Also: LOVE that bag, so cool!

  70. Kathy

    I adore the last photo!! Eleanor is rocking those sunnies haha she's such a goofball :)

  71. brittany

    i love how stylin' that baby daughter of yours is!

  72. Where in the world is Samson's crazy cute hat from??? I need one for my little girl!

  73. You take so lovely pictures! And I'm so happy to have found your happy blog! Two questions – which app (or maybe it's photoshop?) do you use to get the text in the photos? And what's the name of the font? I really would like to learn how to do it, thank you :) Have a lovely weekend! Love, Louise

  74. Joy

    Because of you when I went to NYC over summer I looked up flea markets and found Brooklyn flea. It was one of my favorite memories of the trip, I absolutely loved it! This post makes me want to go back.

  75. shayla.

  76. how did you add the handwriting fonts on photos?? i love them!

  77. Where are the kids' shoes from! I love them!!! Also, I am having a baby soon. Not sure of boy or girl…it's a surprise. I love the way you dress your little ones. Any tips on places to shop for them?? Thanks!!

  78. Hannah
