God Bless the USA

Last night we watched American Sniper. It felt fitting as this weekend we acknowledge Memorial Day, a federal holiday that remembers the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The story of Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle’s life is both heroic and heartbreaking. After watching I went to bed feeling a great sense… read more

Spaces: Is Bigger Better?

I want a bigger house. And I want a bigger yard. And a bigger play room. Bigger is better right? Perhaps not always… This small “tree house” in the mountains of West Virginia that was built by photographer Nick Olson and designer Lilah Horwitz and is made mostly of repurposed old windows had me thinking… read more

See: Annie

Art: Motion Pictures

I started swooning the moment I saw these animated photos taken by Jeffrey Lewis Bennett. He’s a traditional wedding photographer who takes incredible photos but something about the subtle movement in these animated images makes them so special. They are a stunning marriage of art and technology.

The Power of Dance

Last night I was catching up on recorded episodes of “So You Think You Can Dance” and fell in love with this Sonya Tayeh choreographed contemporary piece. The dancers are magical and I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the TV for even a moment while they were on stage. The dance is about losing a… read more

Art: A View from Above

Sometimes from up close our world can look so scary. Jarring, fast-paced, and frenetic. It’s tough to see the fine details as car goes whizzing by and people shout when only inches away from each other. But then we step back a little, look from a distance, and get some perspective on what the picture… read more

Art: Clark Little’s Ocean Views

One of the best parts of living in Greenwich is our easy access to the water. We live a short 2 mile bike ride to the town beach at Tods Point. For me, there is nothing more relaxing than being near the water. Photographer Clark Little who lives in Hawaii does a spectacular job of… read more
