life’s a beach.

Posted on

Leonard, Agnes and gang decided to go to the beach to soak in the sun and meet up with a good friend.

They packed Agnes’ car to full capacity.
They brought chairs and umbrellas.
They hid from the rain.
They overcame massive bridges.
They nearly got carsick.
They laughed.
They chanted “beach, beach, beach!”
They drove and drove.
They passed their destination.
They drove back.
They found their friend.
They set up the umbrella/tent backwards.
They set up the umbrella/tent forwards.
They laughed some more.
They ate some sandwiches.
They did the “stingray shuffle”.
They collected shells in the Gulf.
They “built” a sandcastle.
They swam in a 100 degree saltwater pool.
They washed the sand off their feet.
They repacked the car.
They gave their friend hugs.
They stopped for ice cream on the way home.
They unloaded the car….again.
They had a snack.
They went to bed.

Agnes drove till she was blue in the face.  Leonard may never return to the beach.  A mini adventure and a great day!!

Handle With Care

We love mail, all types, even the junk (another man’s trash, right?)… these last few weeks it was fun to call Park Avenue our home.  We’re ready to move on past the honking and construction that is perpetually NYC but we loved embracing an address that we never thought we’d have.  That being said, getting mail at said address was freaking RAD!  Especially when the mail includes gag gifts, temporary tattoos, sweet letters and fabulous crafts!  Outside our families and each other- our friends matter most.  They are there… always, providing support and a smack upside the back of our heads when we’re being jackasses.  The love we have for our close pals… well, our cup overfloweth.

love for our pops!

memories and smiles, silliness, laughter, stories, humility and strength, courage, love, bike rides and big bear hugs.

Keep me still like an anchor
In a storm you’re the cellar
When I’m heavy with worry make me light as a feather…

rained out at renegade.

for years and years i’ve followed Renegade Craft Fair via blogs, websites, etsy, etc.  for years and years i’ve wanted to see it for myself… the plethora of tents and handmade goodies.  i wanted to take photobooth pics with brooklyn buds and meet interesting folks from around the globe.  unfortunately mother nature had a different plan for all of us.  we were rained on, like torrential down pour… we saved a few tents from blowing into oblivion and crossed our fingers that not all the art work displayed would be ruined.  we ran around with friends and hopped over puddles, admired bright colored umbrellas, made faces, drank coffee, got stuck on a going nowhere G train and met a cute-face pup named Sam.  luckily for some, the following day proved to be better weather but for me i was in the midst of something super exciting (more on that to follow).  so now, i must sift through the many biz cards that i was at least able to grab in the mad dash of renegade sweep!

maybe, just maybe i’ll be around for the chicago or or or the LONDON renegade in a few months!

In the city that never sleeps you’re bound to see some interesting stuff. “Interesting” in this city refuses the confines of any one definition. Instead it embodies all that is wonderful, odd, confusing, entrancing and downright strange.

Here’s a poem to commemorate such experiences!

Two weeks in New York
on foot and by train,
perusing huge craft fairs,
and dodging the rain.
We bought all black clothes,
and attempted to cater,
until we were fired,
“you’re through, cater waiter!”
Saw a free show,
while in Prospect Park,
and saw a nude guy,
walking home in the dark.
Tried out some deals,
sought thrift and antiques,
we modeled for print ads,
as computer geeks!
Took in some art,
heard jazz and played pool,
tried beers from our globe,
and think Park Slope’s cool.
There’s much more to go,
for Aggie and Leo,
next week could be Rome,
London, Paris or Rio!!

leonard, out.
