anyone that’s been in new york lately can attest to the fact that the weather has not been very much fun the past month or so. more like brutal, to put it kindly. this is the part of the year where i forget all about how much i hate the humidity in the summer on the subway car with broken air conditioning and just want someone to transport me back there, even for just a few minutes.
we’ve been doing our best to brave it. the kids are such incredible sports. i swear they don’t feel the cold the way we older people do, always asking to still go play outside and as i scrunch my body trying to hold in any heat while we walk the streets together, they race ahead with the happiest giggles. i’m glad someone is enjoying it.
surprisingly enough, despite the cold, josh and i had a lot of fun outside taking these photos. he was cracking me up left and right with his little dance moves between shots to keep warm. and at one point he wanted to stand where a huge potted tree was placed to get the photo and was all, “do you think i could move this for a minute?!” maybe you had to be there. i don’t know, he just makes everything more fun. even the cold. which is impressive since he’s a florida boy.
thanks to this winter weather, i have been trying to find longer, bigger, warmer jackets to hide in this winter. ones that cover this baby bump comfortably, too. extreme temperatures call for extreme measures, i suppose. i just got this blue padded jacket and it’s my new favorite thing because it feels like i’m wrapped in a loose and cozy sleeping bag. i also love its bright color, because the majority of coats i’ve found in this sort of style are always black and i believe winter calls for color. it lifts my spirits, at least. (and side note: i’ve also been doing a good job of protecting my ankles if anyone hasn’t noticed. josh got me some smart wool socks at christmas because i started to steal his over the last few months and i just have to say, they really are kind of amazing.)
we are supposed to be traveling right now, but it has been a crazy week and we are happy to be here at home. i just started binge watching the latest season of top chef when my insomnia kicks in at night and i am loving it. has anyone seen it? it’s the season set in colorado and it’s been great so far. i had completely forgotten all about that show the last few years, so it’s been fun to have it back in my life. i think i’m late to the game on this one, so you all probably already use and love this app, but my friends just introduced me to the app called marco polo and i am also loving it. you can send videos to your friends so it’s kind of like FaceTime in the fact that it is face to face messaging, but you record it on your own time, and they can respond on their own time as well. i have a couple of group chats going on there with friends and it’s a fun way to feel like we are all in the loop, since life can be crazy and it’s hard to really chat frequently on the phone. i also hate talking on the phone in general, so i feel like this app was made for me.
thanks for the kind feedback on our photography posts we put together! we have a few more coming, so stay tuned! hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
blue padded coat, shearling lace up boots, blue backpack is old, from asos. and red beanie is actually conrad’s (from old navy) which i stole as we ran out the door since i forgot a hat and this one was closest to the door! he thought it was so funny i had his hat on.
