April 2014 (a cut and paste kind of month)

My parents and I tried to force the coming of spring and warmth by eating outside. It didn't quite work.


 The rest of April (hiking, laughing, and baking lemon bars):

 It was William Shakespeare's 450th birthday on April 23 of 2014. My dad and I ordered these cupcakes in celebration. Happy birthday Bill.

The making of Pedal-Wonderful

Grainne came over last night. I glued flowers to her face and forced her to lay out in the freezing cold. She is gorgeous, though I recognize that you might not be able to tell that from the final photo. Expect to see more of her in the future.

Collecting petals for the shoot:

NYC in April

I went to NYC this weekend with my father. 
We stayed at a hotel that was unsuitable for both his and my had a very late twenty-year old clubbing vibe.
He sold at an antiquarian book fair and I was able to do one of my favorite things–to wander amidst aisles upon aisles of books. The books smelled of memories.
My dad and I stood on the balcony of the penthouse suite as we watched the sun rise.
