Photos from Florida

Hola! Atlas and I are back in NYC after a crazy busy trip to Florida.

Unfortunately, I didn’t come home with a suntan, pedicure, highlighted hair or that ‘glow’ that comes after a relaxing vacation but the trip was very productive so I can’t complain.

Atlas & I did get to sit by the pool for 1 hour 1 day. It was Heavenly.

IMG_4999We also went to the zoo with my dad & stepmom 1 day.

Atlas was the hit of the zoo sporting his monkey hat. The Jacksonville Zoo is really beautiful – if you ever get a chance to go, you should check it out. It was a great way to enjoy the outdoors with family.

We had a picnic one day with my mom, sisters and all the nieces and nephews.

Can we talk about how Atlas is almost as big as his cousin, despite the decade+ between them? My kid is a chunk.

IMG_5014I hope he grows up to be as sweet as his cousins. They are the best.

We also got to enjoy some time with some of my favorite & dearest friends.

It was a productive trip with just enough sunshine to keep me happy until Spring, which from what I’m told, should be any day now.:)






  1. Oh Atlas is so sweet! His grin just makes me want to give him a big ol’ hug 🙂 And you are so right about needing to be outside after this crazy vortex of a winter. Sunshine IS good for the soul!

  7. Jealous of your sunny outdoor time! We started to get it here, but have been all rained out for the past week 🙁 Hope you get to experience some sun in NYC soon! And no more blow outs. 😉
