hello! we have been in arizona the last few days enjoying the unreal 75 degree weather and being like, is it really december?! thank you to everyone who shared recommendations on my instagram a few days ago on what to eat and see and do! you guys never lead me astray and i love you for it! love that you all are foodies like me. ;)
anyway, i’ll share more from our arizona trip when we get back to new york, but in the meantime, here’s a little life lately…. little bits and pieces of life from the last month or so…
top photo: a few of my favorite internet mama friends from arizona who met up with us yesterday morning. this is one of the reasons why i love this crazy weird online community so much! sometimes you meet people but it feels like you’ve been good friends for years. i love that.
in arizona where i packed completely wrong. people were like, bring your swimsuits but also your coats. that confused me. and despite checking the temperature before we left, i went with what made sense in my head at the time while packing an hour before leaving (i’m so good at procrastinating), which basically was every sweater, hat and layer i love. so this blouse got a lot of love this trip. it’s from anthropologie for those who have asked.
superheroes among us, photo taken before we left!
some sister loving, because i still can’t believe this happened!!!!!!!!
celebrating hannah’s birthday! lots of helpers to blow out those candles!
took hannah out for a birthday manicure and did our nails all special and fancy for the holidays!
such an incredible group of volunteers who came out to help us at the meatloaf kitchen a few weeks ago! always amazed by the incredible response we receive! wish we could bring more than 10 volunteers with us, the morning always leaves me wanting to be better and do more. thank you so much though to everyone who reaches out with interest to come! with the small kitchen and morning routine, we can only bring a small group. i want to find more ways to get a bigger group together and volunteer in some capacity this coming year. you guys are incredible and i love meeting and doing good along side you.
we enjoyed hosting another little pie night with friends! i documented this one a bit on my snapchat (i’m love.taza on there), but i wish i would have saved it another way (the downside of snapchat, is it doesn’t save unless you manually save it. which i often forget to do.) it was so much fun, and i somehow got an award for my pie which is crazy cause i never win when it comes to anything that has to do with kitchen stuff! i’d say my friends were just trying to be nice, but truly, this pie rocks and it also only requires 5 ingredients so, you know. GO MAKE IT.
a girls night to the nutcracker! my friend lizzie is always on top of organizing such great activities and experiences. this night was such a good one. the dancing was seriously phenomenal. i don’t know if anything can top balanchine’s snow scene. it’s just so magical!
the last snippets of autumn!
and now, it’s CHRISTMASTIME IN THE CITY. hope you’re all enjoying the holiday spirit wherever you might be! thanks for following along here, xoxo.
