West village apartment for under $400....Manhattan's real estate lottery would be living in a large rent controlled apartment. This article says it all. 
PS I'm a big fan of the rent controlled apartments, my in laws live in a classic six on the upper west side, it is where they've been since 1963, and raised their children, step children, grandchildren and have had many many dinner parties, a wedding, post funeral events, you name it. I'd love to post it, one of these days. 

Roast Chicken

Since I've been home on maternity leave, I've been really into cooking. One of the dishes I've been making is the super easy Roast Chicken. LOVE it, so simple. I am a devout follower of Ina Garten, here's her recipe

Off the Grid

Every summer, my family convenes in Toronto and spends one week together up a cottage. Its a slice of heaven; swimming in lakes, spending time with the family and close friends, canoe rides, great meals...you get the picture. So naturally, I was bowled over when I saw this gorgeous off the grid cottage, wow.

Radio Head

I'm a big NPR junkie, love the shows and listen to WNYC pretty much every morning. I love This American Life  while cooking...My old, very old radio was on its last legs, so I bought this super neat old school Sangean.

The Boot

Wow, just love this boot, but its a little over my budget at $550 on SALE?!
Funny fact - the Loeffler in Leoffler Randall worked at Ogilvy for many years, I took over his very office when he left to start his little shoe company with his partner Jessie Randall!!

A few posts ago I lamented about my non existent entry foyer. I tried to create one with this chair and eames hang it all...but this is really how its done. I love this apartment, especially how she created a landing strip. Seen on Apartment Therapy.

We got back from California last week, a red eye with two under two is a challenge to say the least. I think I got the better end of the deal as Cole slept the whole way..Gus squirmed and squealed and was unable to really fall asleep for the first two hours...
We had the most perfect weather and fell madly in love with Bay Area. I especially loved being a short walk from my sister and her three boys. Gus just loved playing with his cousins and their incredibly sweet dog, Reba.
