A Beautiful Birthday

Last week saw my 32nd birthday come and go.  I was fortunate enough to enjoy two fabulous meals during the week.  First, there was a delicious pre-birthday brunch with my entire family at Park Avenue Winter (the housemade ricotta & roasted grapes grilled bread, za’taar was phenomenal).  Second, my husband and I had an incredible dinner at craftbar on my actual birthday (I’ll revisit the meal in a future post).  Below are some iPhone captures of moments small (a treat – yet to be used - from Anthropologie, a mini lemon tart from Le Pain Quotidien) and large (the two birthday week meals) that made my birthday so special.  Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

Snaps: New Jersey Snow

So depending on which forecast you believe, the New York City area may get anywhere from a few inches to over a foot of snow this weekend.  We’ll see whether this storm (apparently dubbed “Nemo” by The Weather Channel) lives up to the severe winter storm advisories that are popping up in my e-mail inbox and iPhone messages.  In the meantime, here are a few iPhone images of snow-covered Paramus, New Jersey from this past December.  The first image is my favorite.  I love the contrast of the tire tracks against the snow.

Wishing you a happy (and safe!) weekend.
