Raw Toast Design

Well lucky me, I was a winner in the monthly Raw Toast Design print giveaway drawing last month! I discovered Raw Toast at the Spring BUST Craftacular when I visited Hillary in Brooklyn in May with Erin. I bought an Adrift print from him, and miraculously won another one, so now I have two lovely prints hanging in my new apartment... they look great together! I chose Fly Fishing which seemed like a good complement to the whole up-in-the-air concept of Adrift. Perhaps I will start a collection... if anyone wants to buy me my next print, or get one for themselves, check out the shop here!

I'd like you to meet the cutest baby ever!

I took some photos of lovely Alice and her parents recently. We chose Mount Auburn Cemetery as a venue. Alice should be a model someday! Here are some favorites:

alice, cutest baby ever.

I could really go for a swim.

Well, I could definitely go for a swim in this heat wave we are having here in Boston, but since I don't have a pool, I'll just post one of my favorite old family photos... this one is of my dad swimming in a lake a long time ago - before my time - it is one of my favorites!
