{ roof garden }

I've never had much of a green thumb...
back in California I had visions of a lovely rooftop garden
but my plants always withered away shortly after purchase
that was until my lovely AP biology teacher roommate
brought them back to life. THANKS S!
Living in NYC, I crave green. 
Green grass, green rolling hills, green vegetables, anything green.
so H and I decided we'd make a rooftop garden attempt
One quick trip to Home Depot
and we had our seeds, soil and cute gardening gloves. 
We planted, and watered
and then I got busy but I watered when I could 
and then I got busier and kind of forgot about our garden
but last night we decided to garden again and...
there was a garden! on our rooftop! success! 
We did it! Our garden certainly could have used a little more love
but what love we did give it paid off!  
mixed greens, cabbage, beans & cute little carrots. 
we harvested, chopped, cooked 
& had a lovely rooftop garden feast.
I'm truly amazed what a little seed, sun and some water can do. 
There will definitely be a next time & you're all invited for the feast!

{ borg night finale }

yes the borg wall is still up
mostly because I've been too busy to take it down
but since it's still up, I thought I'd share a few
of my favorites from borgs last night photo shoot
it was quite the affair.

{ adeline adeline }

a good friend earlier this summer told me I needed to experience NYC by bike...
She was right. There is nothing better than cruising around with your favorites
with the wind in your hair & the river to your side on the perfect summer night.
The only thing missing was a helmet. So we took a trip to the most perfect
little bike shop adeline adeline because safety is first but looking cute is important too!

{ obsession }

i can't get enough of this song
if a guy sang this to me 
I'd probably marry him 
even if he told me he wrote it himself
i'm a little obsessed right now.
please listen...all the way through.
I think it's worth it.

{ f is for family }

F is for family....
we had a little family reunion in the mountains
and my favorite part was sitting around looking at old photos
hearing stories about my grandfather and the brothers 
it was everything I could want in a reunion 
and as my family says, it's always happy hour somewhere... 
 they certainly always know how to the get party started...

one of the many perks of living in the big apple...
free polo matches on governors island
lovely people, lovely friends

it was quite the perfect day 
but those lovely people & my lovely friends
