photos from a beautiful summer day in park güell during an amazingly perfect trip to barcelona with the boy. we both fell in love with this city - the friendly people, delicious food, getting lost in the cobbled-windy streets in the gothic quarter, seeing the explosive color palette and creativity of gaudi first hand, dreaming of the next time we can go back.

images from an apple picking adventure with the boy in upstate new york. favorite memory from this day: climbing back into our car after hours of successful apple picking and orchard-exploring, falling asleep with the windows rolled down after snacking on one too many apple cider donuts, sounds of happy families and the cold fall breeze drifting in and out.
