It’s December 29, just a few short days before New Year’s Eve. I’m spent from this holiday. In a good way…but suffering from that specific type of exhaustion that comes from raising young kids.
Today was more of the usual: we made breakfast, we cleaned. I cleaned. We got dressed for skiing. We drove to the ski resort where the green Magic Carpet still isn’t open. I walked their skis up the bunny hill. I chased them down. I yelled “pizza not French fries! Don’t forget the pizza!” They prefer French fries. Skis railroaded, out of control, heading towards netting, SLOW signs and other beginners. Nobody was injured, at least not today.
I drove back home. They took naps while I dreamt that one day, I might be able to take one of those again.
I went grocery shopping. We made sandwiches for dinner. Sam no longer likes avocado. Emma no longer likes crusts. Fortunately she doesn’t ask me to cut them. She just rips them off her sandwich and scatters them onto the floor. Crusts no longer interest Jackson either. He sits and waits for the high-ticket items: the dropped turkey slice; the leftover cheese.
And me? I’m biding my time until 8:30PM when I can give the kids a nuzzle, tuck them in, fix myself a warm milk & Bailey’s and relax in bed with a good read. I have so many photos to share from the holidays, but I’m saving them until next week. Next week, life gets back on track, work resumes, the kids are back at school, and I can ease myself back into the business of blogging. With some exciting new directions for this space, so stay tuned.
Until then, I wanted to share with you some images that I took a few weeks ago at the launch party for the new Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York. I was covering social media that evening for Tarallucci e Vino, the museum’s new restaurant, so the images are iphone only, but still give a sense for the space. The new Cooper Hewitt Museum is housed in the old Carnegie mansion, built in 1899. The juxtaposition of old and new design is omnipresent, and highlighted by the modern Tarallucci e Vino café, which sits on the ground floor of the Museum.
Tarallucci e Vino has several other locations in the city, and I’ve gotten to know the owners and marketing director quite well over the last year. They serve fantastic food, and they treat their patrons like family. If you’re in New York, the new Cooper Hewitt Museum + an espresso at the Tarrallucci café is the perfect way to kill an afternoon. I’m planning to head back there soon….with the kids. Minus the avocado…though I’m sure there will be crumbs when they get their hands on Tarallucci’s handmade cookies. Have a wonderful week everyone.
Awesome photos and such a cool venue! I can’t wait to come to NYC and check it out. Hope you get some well deserved Jess time soon! I feel ya!
Wishing you a wonderful New Year too and I hope you can nap when the kids are back in school. 😉 Great photos as always. Take care!
It’s got quite ‘the vibe’! Rest well…&*> YAM xx

Happy New year to you and family. Hope you have a great 2015
Have a wonderful New Year….and cherish an elusive nap if you can catch one! 🙂
What quirky stuff you can find there! Amazing!
Happy New Year!
I love these photos. Sounds like a fun ski day. I love the cat tattoo. Happy New Year and happy blogging. xo
Looks like a fun place to dine. Wonderful photos.
What a place! Fantastic.
What a great location. Very nice.
Awesome party! The cat tattoo is an especially cool capture. ^.^
Happy New Year! Have thoroughly enjoyed linking up with you in 2014 and looking forward to lots more in 2015.
Everything looks so wonderful. I love seeing the Milton Glaser “I Heart NY” mug. I talk about him in one of my design classes. I also talk about James Victore. He did a spin on that logo which was, “I Heart NY More Than Milton Glaser”. What a punk, but I still like both their work!
I love New York and the new museum looks amazing. Happy New Year!
Lovely photos, we also wish you a Happy New Year.
Take Care and do rest.
ALL with your iPhone!?! Nicely done!
PS – still giggling about the french fries 🙂
Cool photos. Have a happy new year.
Thank you for the beautiful photos. Wishing you a happy Wordless Wednesday & a happy New Year.
I think your photos from your phone turned out really great!
BTW your photo are beyond. HNY.
