Back in the concrete jungle

Hello, all!

I am back in New York after a long, restful break. Classes start tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited!

Last weekend my mom and I visited my uncle's apartment to help him redecorate. Here are the awesome results of our work!




Sorry for the lack of Christmas and New Years pictures - they have mysteriously disappeared from my phone.

Happy almost-February!

Steve's Super Cakes

Hello friends!

My mom recently created a wonderful portfolio website for my stepfather Steve, who is an incredibly talented baker. If you have a minute, check it out at stevessupercakes.com. If you are a Facebook user, like it here. You won't regret it!



Happy Sort-Of-Almost-The-Weekend :-)

Christmas-ey Tidbits

Some moments from the week before Christmas...

Steve's amazing gingerbread cathedral! He made it himself, including the gingerbread from scratch! It's completely structurally accurate, including the transept proportions and proper number of flying buttresses (hehe). 
My favorite part of the gingerbread cathedral was definitely the modeling chocolate Quasimodo!
Coming home to an unopened Advent Calendar on Day 24 was pretty delicious:
 We had our first Christmas in Dad's new house:
 
And while I enjoyed my first big snow of the year in Boston...
...Milo enjoyed the warm fire inside:
 Happy Wednesday!

Beach

My apologies for the lack of posting, lately! I've been enjoying a nice, chill break between Boston and the Cape. During a visit to my dad's house, I got to take a chilly walk on a nearby beach. It wasn't exactly a day for swimming, but it was gorgeous nonetheless!

Excuse the squinting... It was a bit sunny!

 More pictures from the holidays will be up soon! Happy New Year, all :-)
