Little Moments - February

An early morning passing one of my favorites - the Brooklyn Bridge. 

Grand Central, we meet again. 
A friend I made on my commute home. 
One Sunday after church, we tagged along with some of our friends
 to go to a Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown. 
We missed the big parade when we were in Arizona, 
so I think they brought out the second string dragons for this one. 
It was full of color and confetti.
Chinatown is always an experience for me. 
Sometimes it feels like another world. 
But really it's not too far from us at all. 

I didn't even know what to think of this guy. 
He had his parrot perched on his tie-dyed pooch. 
 He called them his babies. 
I just wanted to interview him and find out his story. 
Cause you know it's crazy good. 

The remnants of a good time. 
Sunday night, game night with our dear friends, the Wilson's and Hughes'.
Heaven in a cup. 
The City Bakery's hot chocolate with a homemade marshmallow. 
If I'm not working, sometimes I'll tag along with friends to mommy group. 
Women in our church meet up once a week for a fun activity with their kids.
I love our ward. 
We lucked out. 
We've been so fortunate to meet incredible people who are in the same stage of life as we are. 
A lot of the guys work crazy hours, so the girls understand 
what it's like to see your husband for maybe an hour a day. 
These women inspire me. 
They own this city -- and tackle it with a double wide stroller and children in tow. 
I don't know how they do it - but boy, I admire them so. 
I love my chats with these girls.  
This mommy group activity was spent at City Bakery and Books of Wonder. 
I was exploring and came across 
my new favorite stationary store, Paper Presentation. 
I mean, look at those colors. 
Speaking of stores, this one is a must in New York. 
Fishs Eddy has the most darling and unique dishes, glassware, and cookware. 
I could spend hours there. 
If you're in the city, I would definitely check it out. 
They have a NYC Skyline collection that I'm obsessed with. 
Just go, you won't leave. 
This is the best kept secret in all of Chinatown. 
It's a reflexology spa where you can get a one hour foot massage for $22. 
I had heard about this place from a few friends and was dying to go. 
Needless to say, I was sold. 
This was on our four month anniversary. 
(I figure you can count anniversaries by month when you're a newlywed. It just feels right.)
We both worked long days. 
Scott came home in the suit that he married me in 
and it made up for only seeing him for like an hour that day. 
Homeboy was looking fresh. 
Thanks, February. 
You were good to us. 
Now spring, don't be a stranger.
