This weekend we baked cookies and put down our storm windows and then watched the wind blow.
No power outage for us, and no downed trees. Just a day indoors watching a bit of mindless TV and indulging in a lazy Sunday. We were lucky.

Last weekend, though, we were wandering around New York City.
Relics from another time, making our way to Governors Island for the Jazz Age Lawn Party.
Our dresses were long and lacy, with a few worn spots since they're actually from the era.
The boy wore a bow tie.
We are already making plans for next year.

bow ties are cool

lace and buckles

P.S. For a better view of my dress, check out this photo.

I have many pictures from our vacation.
Pretty pictures of food and flowers and ocean.
But these silly photos of cartwheels on the sand might be my favorites.

A week ago, we came home from the vineyard.

Vacations are funny things. During our stay on the island we lost track of all time. We had to keep asking each other, "What day is it? What time?" Because of that our week felt beautifully long while we were there and seemed altogether too short once we were gone.

So now we are home, and I am missing the sand and sun and riding my bike everywhere, though we have a remarkable stack of polaroids to remember our time there. Above are just a few of my favorites. I'll share more slowly.

On a blogging note... lately I feel I have less to say here. I'm not feeling especially wordy, but I still have images I'd like to share. For now this may become more of a photo blog. A bit of change is in order for this space, but I'm still working out in my head how that will look and feel. We shall see.
