The city of right angles.

Since the wedding, I have been busy doing things like painting a penguin on a tile and doing yoga and reading wonderful books. Oh, and Mike and I went to New York for the weekend. It was like our own honeymoon. A honeymoon is the vacation you get for surviving a wedding, right? Well, there was a lot of wedding planning at our house. We deserved a honeymoon, too. And we had a wonderful time. Maybe a long weekend in New York will become one of our fall traditions. We visited the MoMA. We saw Billy Elliot. We spent a glorious afternoon in Brooklyn with my cousin, ate magnificent tiny food at the wine bar across the street from our hotel, and had a fantastic cool autumn morning in Central Park. Here are a few pictures just to give you an idea of the shenanigans we were up to.


I have wanted to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge for a long time, and Mike gamely agreed. He had the best time taking pictures (it was just at sunset, so the skyline was gorgeous).



This is my cousin’s son. He is part of the reason we went to Brooklyn.


And here is the gorgeousness of Central Park.

Now we are busy planning our Third Annual It’s a Great Pumpkin Party, Charlie Brown, which will be taking place on Friday. I will probably be scarce until after then, because I have a lot of baking to do. In fact, I need to go make some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins right now. If you have never made my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, may I just recommend that you do so? They are delicious and never fail to please. Unless you are the kind of person who hates fun. If you are that kind of person, you may be in the wrong place. Two things we like here? Fun. And pumpkins.

  1. I was on the phone with my dad today… we are heading to Dallas in the morning and literally this is what he said: “What time do you get here and how long will it take for you to make some of those muffins?”

    Oh my, those muffins were the best! A friend of mine had surgery on her foot and was out of commission for Halloween so I made the muffins and brought them to her! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! They all said they tasted like they were from a bakery! I got jumbo muffin pans and made HUGE muffins! Now I have to make some for my co-workers!
