travel : boston

Wet, rainy, wonderful.  Our short trip to Boston was perfectly grey and overcast.  We spent much needed time outdoors, not even letting the occasional rain shower stop us from our plans.  Erick has been a few times now to visit his brother and sister-in-law but this trip was my first to the city-- I was impressed to say the least.

Nearly everywhere we went in the city, from the North End to the South End, we were able to get to by foot or by bike. Cruising around between cars in the fall air, smile plastered to my face, hands shaking, trying to keep up with my husband... they're memories I won't soon forget.

Here are a few awesome places we recommend from our visit:

The Wired Puppy - a delightful coffee shop
Mela - amazing Indian food
Max Brenner - open til 2AM with all things desert and chocolate
Regina Pizzeria - amazing thin crust pizza in the Italian neighborhood
Wagamama - spicy noodle soup in gigantic portions

A big thanks to Erick's brother Hector and his wife Illiana for showing us around and housing us for our stay. We're so grateful to have such amazing family. After such an eventful weekend though, Erick and I are both in a kind of "travel" haze.  We're tired and glad to be home with our little one (who's not so little any more!) Sofia just turned 16 months and is officially in full-on toddler mode. She's been keeping us busy and we couldn't be more happy, seeing how much she's grown and has learned in such a short time always stops me in my tracks... how quickly time is passing us by.


  1. this looks like such a cool trip. and what beautiful photos (per usual). i'm craving cold right now... TOO HOT IN LA!

  2. That's crazy to me that it still hasn't cooled off for you yet! Do you ever get fall like weather in LA?

  7. such lovely pictures, I really liked Boston when I went although we only spent two days there, I'd love to go again

  8. These are such beautiful photos of your trip to Boston! I've never been there before but I just had a friend who moved out there, maybe now I have a chance to go! :)

    I just stumbled upon your blog, you have such a lovely space here!

  9. Great pictures Kate, looks like you and Erik and a wonderful time!!

  10. Hahaha, I love these! You guys are the best! I really love the way Boston feels so much smaller than it is. I also remember having the best indian food there. Just a place on the street - I couldn't tell anyone where it was if I wanted to. I'm glad you had an awesome trip. It looks like so much fun.

  11. Your photos are always amazing! May I ask what lens you used for most of these? I'm trying to decide whether to get the Canon 28mm or the Sigma 30mm but I like my bokeh and I haven't seen much with the 28mm so I'm kind of iffy on it lol. Btw my daughter just turned 2 and I can honestly say I miss 16 months, soooo much easier lol. :P

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
