After 10 days of vacation and an extra day off because of a huge snow fall in New York, we’re finally getting back to our everyday routines. Though I love spending time with all of my three daughters at the same time, I also enjoy getting back to normal with a bit more time to write and work. That being said, sitting down in front of a computer with an almost one year old seem like a bit of a struggle. But we find our own ways and she loves to make a mess around the apartment and empty out every closet we have while I try just to write a single sentence or two at the time.
Last night, walking home from my eldest daughter’s ballet class, we felt the hurricane Jose passing by 250 miles away. The air was still hot and humid and while light rain fell on our bare arms, the wild wind blew golden leaves all around us. Fall has arrived to New York, and though it’s still too warm to wear wooly jumpers, I can’t wait for my favorite season to slowly unfold in front of me.
It’s almost two weeks ago since we came home from our long vacation in Denmark, and we have finally settled in to our Brooklyn-life again. We are taking it slow these last days before school routines and every day life kicks in which leaves us with plenty of time to play, read and eat.
A few moments and things that made my last week better, sweeter and a little more fun:
These frozen flowers that I saw when taking a stroll around Williamsburg.
A few things that made me feel a little bit happier and a little less impatient this week.
This new and very simple design on our little Christmas calendar of good moments, that I finally got around to finish.
A few things that turned my week into a good one after all.
This picture and the little details on this tiny and very soft body.
A few things that made me feel a little bit happier and stand still for a little bit longer this week.
Looking at simple lines and geometric shapes at this exhibition.
The wind making small ripples in a puddle.
This huge bunch of eucalyptus leaves, that gives our apartment the smell of a crisp autumn morning.
Hot chocolate and hot coffee in the autumn sun.
This gift of the cutest little bows for my daughter’s hair.
