Jet Set

New York is having another snow storm today, switching from snow to freezing rain and back to snow again by this evening. Yeesh, this winter has been brutal. I was recently glancing through the NY Times’ list of 52 places to visit in 2014 (daydreaming my way out of this winter ;), and was excited to see that Cape Town is number one, especially considering we very well may be making it there this year.   I was surprised though, to see many of my dream spots missing. If nothing were standing in my way, I’d love to visit Egypt, Greece, Portland, The Netherlands, Tibet, Cambodia, Seattle, and India. What about you?

NYCBallet Jewels

A couple weekends ago, my fiancĂ© and I went to see the New York City Ballet’s performance of Balanchine’s Jewels. It’s one I’ve always want to see and I was so excited to get the chance. The three pieces, Emeralds, Rubies, and Diamonds, were lovely, but Rubies was by far my favorite – so much spunk and energy. There are more shows in the spring and if you’re near NYC, I would highly recommend it. Another perk of the performance was the current installation by french street artist J R in the promenade of the David H. Koch Theater, a giant eye photograph of New York City Ballet’s dancers. Some guests were getting down on the floor and taking photos with the photos, and while I chose to shoot from a standing position, it was still pretty cool!

Sealed With A Kiss

Keeping with tradition, I made valentines for friends again this year. I always enjoy coming up with crafty little ways to make them different, but this year I was feeling a bit uninspired (maybe it’s all the snow and gray skies we’ve been having in NYC). A quick trip to Paper Source was all I needed though. After discovering some cute new washi tape, a knowing I had some left over from this project, I knew exactly what to do. These cards were super quick and easy to make, but still have all the fun and flair of the holiday that I enjoy so much.
