Becca + Nathaniel: Married at the Inn at Mystic


These two NYC-dwellers clicked over a mutual appreciation for Ina Garten (The Barefoot Contessa) and decided to meet up for drinks in December 2013. Nathaniel got sick so that turned into hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows at City Bakery in NYC…but lo and behold there were no marshmallows that day. Not to worry–they’ve returned many […]

I can now check off  “beautifully-executed-woodland-nature-filled-movie-premier-themed-wedding” off my life list, thanks to you, Matt and Bridget! Your wedding, deep in the woods at Halcyon Hills Farm was amazing! Our beautiful bride, and her bouquet of greens.

After the winter we had in New England, it seemed like warm weather (and wedding weather!) might never come. Julie and I talked about photo locations for their Massachusetts wedding, and wondered if the leaves would be out–and they were! Julie  and Tim were married on what felt like the grand arrival of spring in […]

Lego Love


In case I EVER forget what it is like to have two Lego-loving boys in the house. You know, in 1,000 years when the last one is finally picked up and not embedded in the bottom of my feet. Remind me about this photo and how this is just a scene from everyday life.

Did you notice?


The sun here on the coast of CT set at 4:24 p.m. today. But yesterday it set at 4:23 p.m. Things are looking up, folks. I loved this poem last year, and I’ll post it here again this year, because there is nothing as joyful as knowing we have already passed the darkest day of […]

How to charm me

Henry, the King of Non-sequitors,  just came downstairs, twenty minutes past bedtime, to ask the following: “Dad, what is it like when you are dead?” “Do you come back from being dead?” I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I will put my kid up against ANYONE else’s kid for the world title […]
