About a year ago, Louie & I were invited by our good friends Svenja + Heiko to join them for their wedding in Hamburg, Germany. I couldn’t mask my excitement of 1) being asked to photograph the wedding and 2) taking my first trip to Europe. As I started planning this amazing trip (more to come on that later) 🙂 , Lou called me with another surprise! He was planning to propose to his girlfriend Kendra and wanted me to be there to capture the moment. Of course I squealed in excitement and it took me a few moments to calm down. When I did I asked him where he wanted to pop the question and he said, Paris… Cue the excitement all over again!!
Lou and I carefully planned the date, location, and time… And as the months rolled on it took EVERYTHING out of me not to ruin the surprise for Kendra!
The ladies and I planned a trip to go apple picking this past weekend. We were all stoked to do what people in the “North” do so off to Connecticut we went. After a few wrong turns we arrived to Beardsley Cider Mill & Orchard. The Yelp reviews raved about the apple cider donuts so being the fat kids that we are it was the first thing on our list of things to do. Let me tell you they were AMAZING. Perfect balance of sweetness & the ‘hard’ apple cider was a perfect compliment, hehe 😉
Unfortunately, we had driven all this way to find out that we missed last of the apples last weekend. 🙁 We were all pretty bummed, but what does one do? Have a photoshoot of course! 🙂 We later ventured off to another farm close by named Jones to do what the locals do.. Pumpkin pick, hay ride, and get lost in the corn maze.
I have to say it was a fun time just enjoying being outside in the great company weather.
The Sirs and I went to the Grand Central Terminal 100 Year Exhibit. It is said to be “A dramatic, multi-media installation on Grand Central’s century long lifespan will be the centerpiece of the Centennial celebration revealing how the iconic building, on the verge of changing the way New Yorkers travel over the next decade, shaped modern New York and determines its future.”
Between you and I it was a quite bland and I was a little disappointed. I expected it to be a more interactive but I was told if I wanted to see more I should head to the transit museum in Brooklyn. 🙁 Nonetheless, I enjoyed snapping some photos and hanging out at the coolest apple store I’ve ever been to.
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!
Hope your day is filled with lots of love and sweets!!

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.. 🙂
