Fresh air? Crunchy leaves? Big smiles? Little giggles? New York, you’ve got this autumn thing down! Some photos below (sorry – there are a lot, I can’t help it!). I gave everyone a proper scrub down before we came back inside our apartment, but the amount of leaves inside our pockets, stuck inside our coats was crazy. Autumn, you win.
Trying to play “catch up” with my blog right now and wanted to share some photos from last weekend at Governors Island. Governors Island is only a quick ferry ride away from Brooklyn and it’s a great destination for kids. You can rent bikes (even tandem or 6-seater surrey bikes!) to explore the island on or ride down the longest slide in NYC at 57 feet at The Hills play area. The island offers some of the best views of […]
After Martha’s Vineyard, we went to Boston for a day. We spent the afternoon following the Freedom Trail. Boston’s signature attraction is a 2.5-mile line of red paint or brick that passes by key locations significant to the history of the United States. Granary Burying Ground, established in 1660, where some of America’s most notable citizens rest. The Old State House is one of the oldest public buildings in the USA.
Martha’s Vineyard, a Massachusetts island just south of Cape Cod, is mostly famous for two things: Steven Spielberg’s “Jaws” was filmed there, and former heads of state have made this tiny slice of paradise their chosen summer retreat: first the Clintons, then the Obamas. It was our first time on the island, and while we didn’t meet any shark nor any current, former or future heads of state, it is the most magical place ever. We were only doing a quick trip […]
I already shared bits and pieces on Instagram a couple of weeks ago about our time in Massachusetts, but I finally got around to going through all the photos (brace yourselves, there are a lot!). Travelling with 1 month old baby and a toddler is not the easiest, but I wouldn’t trade the memories and experiences we’ve been able to create together while doing so for anything… A summer visit to New England isn’t complete without a lobster shack experience. […]
It’s hard to believe it’s already been a over a month now since August joined our family. It went by so fast, this first month of his life here with us. I knew it would, it happened that way with Victor too, but somehow, it was extra fast this time. If I could hit the pause button, well I’d be hitting that button all day long. There is something about that newborn smell, the quivering chin when they are hungry, […]

A couple weekends ago, the three of us got a little getaway, finally getting some much needed beach time. It was our first time to Montauk and it was so charming and pretty. The town has endless cafes, cute shops, flowers and fruit stands. We stayed right on the beach and hardly anyone was there. It was so quiet and relaxing. We don’t often get a chance to slow down our days, enjoy time as a family, be more present, listen to each other. […]
If you follow me along on Instagram you might have seen some balloons snaps from when we went to the Park Avenue Armory on Sunday to check out British Artist Martin Creed’s retrospective exhibition called “The Back Door”. We spent the majority of our time in the balloon room, because V could not get enough of it! Elsewhere in the exhibition, we encountered films of people vomiting, spitting yogurt and defecating, along an array of metronomes ticking at different speeds, and a […]
Wishing everyone a happy, safe and festive silly season! Ok, my blog has been dead quiet for almost a full year now but fear not people for I shall return to a semi-regular blogging schedule with new adventures very soon (I hope)!
