I have fallen so far behind in sharing photo sessions and adventures with all of you! One that I have been especially excited to share is from back in the Spring when I met up with Katie and Aaron Thomas of Pilgrim, in Cold Spring, NY. Katie, Aaron and their little girl, Magnolia, are from Nashville, TN and are amazing musicians. They travel the country in their Airstream and make stops along the way to perform house concerts. I am not so secretly in love with a nomadic lifestyle so you can bet I was so inspired by their story and their lifestyle.

Meeting Katie and Aaron was like meeting old friends, it felt like we had known each other and we were just hanging out for the day. They had just performed a house concert in Boston, I had just gotten back from Jamaica and they were making their way home to Nashville. So I suggested we meet up in Cold Spring, NY. It had been years since I had gone there so I was excited to explore the place along with them. We ate mexican food, grabbed some delicious popsicles and walked along the river.

Back in 2014 I completed a project 365, in 2015 I attempted and made it to June, in 2016 I attempted and made it….not even until the end of January! So here I go again! It is my goal to take pictures daily…and that’s it. No specific themes, not of anything in particular, just of whatever speaks to me that day. If I miss a day, I won’t stress..shooting 300 days in one year is better than none! I’ve already missed a day and we are only in week one! In those cases I will just share an image from a different day.

I will post once a week on Sundays all of the images from the week before.

So here goes, week one of project 365

Every year I try to make it down to New York City to spend the day getting into the Christmas spirit. There really is nothing like Christmas in New York. This year we decided to check out the Union Square Holiday Market. It’s a beautiful market with wooden stalls filled with dozens and dozens of artisans selling all kinds of their beautiful goods. We met up with my brother and immediately order food from a few vendors and had a lunch of vegan chili, mac and cheese and several types of empanadas. Aaden was excited to play some Pokemon Go in New York so he and Andy walked around the park a bit a played. There is a really cool playground in the Northeast corner that Aaden couldn’t get enough of. When we were done with the playground we headed to 34th street, normally we would have checked out the windows at Macy’s but we were on a mission to get lamb and rice from a vendor outside of Penn Station for Mo. We ended the day meeting up with my brothers girlfriend and having dinner at Raclette NYC. If you like cheese you will love this restaurant. This is commonly found in France, wheels of raclette sit under a broiler waiting to be scraped onto your food. It is seriously heaven. If you want to be mesmerized google “raclette videos” you won’t be disappointed.  Enjoy looking at our little adventure in New York and head over to Blimie T Photography and make your way through the rest of the blog circle!

This month we headed to Hudson, NY to check out the Basilica Farm and Flea. This craft, food, and farm market held the weekend after Thanksgiving, celebrates all sorts of unique makers and vendors who sell their beautiful goodies. We got some food, bought a couple of bob cat teeth and got a ton of great Christmas gift ideas while we were there.
