Three Things to Love about November News...

These new giraffes came in the mail and have taken residence in our extra room...

As it turns out, next time the Christmas greens come out, we won't be the only ones to appreciate them...

Sumanth took a preliminary claim at primary colors for the nursery by buying this mobile at a Swedish gift shop in Chicago.

The baby is due June 13th, so whether it comes a little early or a little late, next June's post will be something to look forward to!

Three things to love about an October trip to NYC

Going up to the rooftop of the apartment we stayed in.

Seeing Sumanth's books at Word bookstore in Brooklyn. Don't they look so perfect all together on this little wooden shelf?

The original artwork of The Snowy Day at the Museum of Jewish History. Peter's footprints in his first snow made me feel up for another Boston winter.

Three things to love about our fifth anniversary celebration

Anniversary bouquet from Sumanth with pink Snapdragons just like on that hot August day in 2006.

We went to see Bon Iver in concert. This is their newest album cover which looks very much like the music sounds.

Dinner at one of my favorite spots in Boston. Fresh pasta is just so good.

Three things to love about July

The best neighborhood find to have ever been found--a shimmery blue lake for swimming, just a seven minute walk from our apartment. If you squint you can see me and my turquoise bathing suit.

My new ipad. With this little smoothie at my fingertips, my commute has gotten quite a bit more exciting.

Iced coconut coffee from Marylou's during our first trip to Cape Cod. Driving over the bridge to the Cape reminded me of family vacations to the beach when I was little.

Oh, June!

Bright flowers from a visiting friend.

Morning coffee with my mom while we planned a perfect day.

Hulling strawberries for brunch on our new picnic table.

Three Things to Love about May in our New Place

Amidst a busy month at work as the school year comes to a close and the very, very exciting news of a new nephew(!), May has held a lot of easy moments...

Dinners on the front porch.

Cold strawberry lemonade as summer is on the way.

Sunny Saturday afternoon naps on the new windowseat. I hope to never live without a window seat again.

Three things to love about our April move...

Our apartment has lots of new windows to look out of. (Thanks, Dad, for all of the coats of white paint!)

The flowers in the neighborhood are at their springiest peak. These mountain laurels are my very favorite.

We are now so close to the most delicious bagel shop that I can smell the poppyseeds baking when I get to the end of our driveway.

Three things to love about March (posted thanks to wireless internet on the greyhound bus from NYC to Boston!)

A new apartment (we'll move this month) so close to this darling T station (there's a breakfast and pie diner inside), that we can almost watch for the train out the window before running to catch it.

Lavender lemonade at this perfect coffee shop in Portland with my best friends.

A new print for our new walls; it's called the Dreaming Tree.

Three Things to Love About January (a day late because it took a little longer to think of lovable parts of January)

Rolling out dough for Sumanth's birthday cinnamon rolls.

Parcels arriving from Christmas-giftcard purchases. (Thanks mom and thanks dad--they keep rolling in!)

The snowman outside of our little fruit market.

And just to show you how things are looking around our front steps...
