  2. JESS: No kidding! it was so impressive. i stopped dead in my tracks!

  3. so, you need to make your guy start a foodie blog. I'm dying to know how he makes such beautiful things!

  4. Pea shoots, not bean sprouts :)

  5. your pictures of NYC life make me want to pack up my things and move! I think it's so so great that you found out what makes you happy and made a conscious decision to make it happen :-)

    p.s. that paint brush art is insane!

  6. Recently moved to NYC from Dallas and am looking for a church. Where do you attend? Any suggestions? I was raised non-denominational and everything up here is Catholic/ Lutheran/methodist , or Jewish...

  24. wow! Your week in NY totally blows mine out of the water! Now that its summery and light out after work, I have GOT to get out and do things / see things instead of sitting in my dark windowless office and then coming home and crashing on the sofa. Although, it IS a pretty comfy sofa... :)

  25. It's so fun to see snaps of your life in NYC.


  26. some really nice images here... I especially like the piece made out of paint brushes, the colours are really vivid!
