This is not the first time Svenja + Heiko have graced my blog.

Over the past 4 years we have had quite a few shoots, celebrated birthdays, and formed a great friendship. As we prepared for our annual holiday shoot I got a special email from Heiko letting me know he was going to propose to Svenja on that day. I couldn’t help squealing with excitement and once I regained my composure I gave Heiko my thoughts on how we should capture it. I later suggested to Svenja that ice skating would be a fun background for the holiday photos and she agreed, little did she know of the master plan! 🙂

We started on the grounds of the Mid Manhattan Library. I am absolutely smitten by this building everything about it makes my heart melt.  We chatted about the weather, upcoming holiday plans, and our love for Starbucks. We then walked around to the back where the Bryant Park Pond is located. I secretly was so nervous and anxious that “the moment” was so close. Once in the perfect position I gave Heiko the thumbs up and it HAPPENED! 😉


Congrats to the both of you!! I can’t wait till the wedding!!

Ohh and Svenja’s birthday was this week!!! Happy Birthday my darling!

This weekend the blizzard “Nemo” came and paid us a visit. Honestly, I really didn’t feel a “blizzard” but he sure left us a good amount of snow and a beautiful Saturday!  The Mrs. and I always find the need to frolic in day after snow so off to Central Park we went. This is Pearl’s first snow and I was nervous she would hate it. Guess I missed the memo that most dogs LOVE the snow!! It was so cute seeing her hop up and down like a little bunny. Of course she made a million human friends.. She doesn’t really fancy other pups but she did make a big fuss and bark at each of them (this is a work in progress)…

All in all it was a delightful afternoon.. 🙂

The Pacetti’s are no strangers to this blog. I have been documenting their lives for the past 3.5 years. Matthew has become my little buddy and never fails to give me the cutest little smiles. It had become our  little tradition to take holiday photos each year and I was over joyed when I found out that this year little Mason would be joining us. 🙂

I know i’m young but amazing things have happened in my lifetime like the birth of the internets, cell phones, everything APPLE, and Obama being elected president to name a few…The opportunity witness my beloved sorority Delta Sigma Theta  turn 100 tops the list for me!! There was a “sea of red” throughout the city as over 12,000 Sorors from across the nation came together to witness this incredible milestone.

 Our series of centennial events  began on January 1 as we participated with a float in the Rose Bowl parade. It was followed by a major media blitz on January 10th where Sorors from all over the country gathered in Times Square – NYC and made our presence known at all the network morning shows. This weekend January 11-13 in Washington, DC, 22 service projects were executed in honor of our founders, a rededication luncheon, awards gala and Ecumenical Service was hosted. In March,  we will re-enact the Woman Suffrage Parade of 1913, in which our founders participated and then we will gather in Washington again in July for our national convention.

The best part of this past weekend was being able to fellowship with and amazing group of ladies who are truly my sisters. We laughed, cried, partied, reminisced and did a whole lot of eating. I could not have wished for a better centennial experience.  Much love to the ladies of Mu Iota who made me and gave me the opportunity to join this illustrious organization – Thank you!! 🙂

 Happy 100 Years my Sorors!! OO-OOP!
