wedding toes

at almost five years in, i'm guessing it's too late for me to get to wear these shoes with this full skirt and ten perfect red wedding toes...

spring green


rag and bone

from pastels to neon, it seems like there is extreme color everywhere you look for spring.  i am particularly liking this deeper version of spring green that is much more wearable for us mortal folk...

spotted: triwa.

i spotted my first triwa watch on my friend dan's arm in the elevator of our building at 919 third avenue about a month ago. i haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. today i will be taking the plunge and adding it to my collection. loving the classic shape in contrast with the modern materials.

8 year anniversaries.

eight years is a long time. or at least it's not a short time when it's a measurement of how long you've been dating someone and you're 31 (i don't think).

with all this change (or at least the anticipation of change), abe and i have been doing a lot of s-o-u-l searching. we search first thing in the morning when we wake up, while walking to the subway, while making dinner, during commercials breaks on the couch while watching late night tv.

the thing is, it's so easy in the day-to-day, especially with the fast-pace of the city, to get picked up by the whirlwind that is your (um, my) life. for me, that's being an attorney most days of the week, being (or trying to be) a consumer of all things new york (yep, the things that keep me glued to the city: following restaurant openings on grub street, the ballet at lincoln center, walking the hudson river). 

but sometimes, we have to stop 
and sort through our lives. organize and prioritize. 
figure out which things are our rocks (a move westward, a baby, a fast-track career in big law?), and letting the pebbles and sand fall where they may. 

right, i know. who measures life in pebbles and rocks? apparently the professors and students at columbia business school. ever since abe's retreat with CBS a few weeks ago, it seems like our discussions keep coming back to the same question: what things in life do we want to be our rocks? (and ultimately, how will the rest work itself out?)

our conversation on sunday to celebrate our 8-year anniversary was filled with exactly these questions. 

i don't have any answers for you. at least not yet.

but we did get to enjoy some delicious italian food while at it.
