Yes, it has been rather quiet over here lately. I am still here – I promise.
The past month and a half has been crazy in the world of the Andersons. The beginning of August we went on a family roadtrip back to the midwest. After family visits, we headed back to NYC to meet the movers. We moved most of our belongings that were in the city back to a rental house in Connecticut. We unpacked for a week then headed back to the city for a last hurrah. Tired yet? Follow that with returning to CT only to have Irene knock out our power for a week! The next week was full of back to school activities and trying to unpack and settle. That weekend I headed out to the Outer Banks for a photographer retreat…the following weekend the whole family headed back into the city for our very own family photo session. This past weekend we stayed put in CT but half of the family was under the weather. Phew!!!
We loved our time in NYC and wouldn’t trade that experience for anything. Someday when I finish my 365 NYC project, I will post a link over here to share. But we are also happy to be back in southeastern Connecticut in time for school and all of the fall fun.
Our family’s favorite local restaurant (within 2 blocks) on the Upper East Side is Brother Jimmy’s BBQ. It is nice and loud inside and is very kid friendly. Here is our last meal at Brother Jimmy’s from last weekend. You can even see my reflection over on the right in the window.
The same weekend we headed outside early Sunday morning to take a self-timer photo in our I heart NY tees. This spot is across from our building and next to our favorite playground.
We are back and just in time for your fall family photos. Contact me today to schedule your session!
