pictures in a booth.

my little sister hannah came to visit us over the weekend! what better way to celebrate her visit than with some good old photobooth pictures! we’ve been eating our way through the city each day in-between playground and splash-pad time with the kiddos and spending our nights staying up way too late having those sisterly chats that are just so good for the soul. i’ve recruited eleanor and samson into my plan of trying to convince hannah to move back to the city. so there has been a lot of batting of their eye lashes and spontaneous hugs! whatever it takes! we’re gonna make it happen.

ps. completely unrelated, but… occasionally i like to catch up on the tv show so you think you can dance while doing stuff on my computer. i’m pretty far behind because i can’t watch it in real time, but you should go watch this (not the whole thing, you have to fast forward to 1 hour and 5 minutes in, and just watch that 2 minute solo by the boy named ricky). it is one of the most beautiful things i have seen in my life.  i keep going back to hulu and fast forwarding to that spot to watch it over and over again. somebody call up ohad for that boy! he is ready.

    Good luck in trying to convince your sister to move to NYC! I’m trying to convince my best friend to move from Canada to London and I’ve been at it for years – I think I’m getting closer though! She’s starting to crumble ;)

    so cute! :)

  6. I love these pictures, they are the most funny ones. Imagine when you will find them back within 10 years from will remmeber all the fun you had by taking them.
    Otherwise, I totally understand how it feels to be seperated from your sister. Mine moved 4 years ago and it has been so difficult for me to live wihtout her close by. It makes such a difference in my dayd to day live, even after 4 years… So I hope for you she will come back ;-) good luck!!!

    I LOVE So You Think You Can Dance and watch it on Hulu every week!! I think the boys have it this year!! Ricky is amazing!

    These photos are adorable! It’s so great to connect with family who live far, even if it seems like their visits are never quite long enough. I’m so happy that you and your sister where able to share some quality bonding time…those conversations are well worth the lost sleep. Thanks for sharing these special moments with us!

  9. I quit dance when I was 18 and I truly regret it. I know I could get back into it if I put forth the effort, but w 3 kids and at 36 years old, it’s just not in the cards for me. Thankfully there is SYTYCD that I watch religiously every season so I can live vicariously through those talented young people!! Ha!!

    The photobooth pictures are so cute! I think there’s always something timeless about photobooth pictures, espcially when they’re in black and white, they give off quite a nostalgic feel.

  22. Dear Sister,

    Life is short and in the end it’s your relationships with the ones you love that matter most. Your time spent together on this earth can only enrich the hereafter.

    And besides, from what I’ve seen, you’re one boho haired, Birks rocking, stylish hottie who has the added element of kindness and joy.

    New York needs you.

    Xoxo from San Francisco

    Hi Taza – just wondering how many weeks pregnant are you?

    Ricky is hands down my favorite this season! His technique is insane. Even if he doesn’t win, he’s definitely going places! :)


  28. i adore SYTYCD! but nothing beats sister time. :)

  29. Gabby

    Hi Naomi! I actually competed against Ricky in the competition circuit throughout my life! Everytime I watch him dance he amazes m, and taking class with him is unbelievable!

  30. Mandy

    Just watched his episode at home. He is SO unbelievable…. *CHILLS*

  31. I love SYTYCD, too! I do hate how long it takes to get through an episode. That and Mary’s squealing. I really just love the dancing.

    • TAZA

      yes, and i also wish they didn’t cut the judges faces during each piece or routine! i just wanna see the dancing uninterrupted!

  32. Danielle

    Atticus, O’Brien, Eames, Veda, Allistair, Imogen, Ambrose, & Rafferty are my offering for the name game!

  33. Ify

    Can we talk about how Ricky is my favorite dancer? Like, every move he makes is filled with passion and intent. I could watch him dance all day every day!

  34. marie

    Such cute photos! Your sis is such a great aunt to her niece and nephew, it’s obvious that your kids love her alot too. :) I hope my newborn baby will be close to my siblings like yours too :))

  35. PatyHV

    This season of SYTYCD is beyond amazing ! I died a little bit through Ricky’s audition but my favorite so far has to be this duet

    beyond beautiful, brought chills and tears to my eyes, you just feel everything in their dance

  36. Flea market + a donut stand sounds like the perfect Saturday! Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing! <3
