After spending the first 14 months of the pandemic in Florida and
Georgia, I moved back to NYC in May of 2021. Why? Still not really sure.
I have been in and out of the city since 2016 and was feeling the pull again;
NYC has a tendency to draw you in once you’ve spent time there. And I was ready

I found the best apartment to rent, complete with porch where I can lay in my
work read or nap.
Our tradition of meeting at the lake for a week every summer continues!
Nicole visited NYC and we got to spend a couple of days together. We
hadn’t seen each other since leaving Morocco in 2018!
I got to dogsit for some friends during a long weekend. Don’t tell
This was my first time vising the office since February of 2020.
I took this from a friend’s apartment in Brooklyn.
This would unfortunately be our last Thanksgiving with Granny ❤️.
And their dog, Sandy.
Needed a new Tinder pic.
This is my Dad. He sometimes makes videos while riding on a tractor.
TBD whether he actually likes the overalls I bought him but I think they’re
