what I did on my summer vacation

Oh, hi. You may have wondered where the heck I’ve been…The Salted Slate

Overall, this summer was relaxing, but things got busy. I saw old friends, spent some time in the White Mountains and on Cape Cod with my family. But the best thing that happened this summer was that my dear, dear friends opened a restaurant in Providence, RI called The Salted Slate, I’m so proud of them! I’m also very proud to have played a role in this exciting endeavor, of course with photography, and it was really fun being a part of the process. Look at these yummies.


If you are in or anywhere near Rhode Island, you simply must check out the Salted Slate for dinner, lunch, or Brunch (there are donuts) the menu is fantastic and focused on local fresh ingredients including house-cured meats. The atmosphere is quite nice too, modern yet rustic with plenty of tables and a cozy bar.

New York City in 24 Hours

I have a confession to make: I recently visited New York City and did not go to the Museum of Modern Art, or any museum for that matter. I am shamed and saddened to admit this, but it was a special first time trip for a very special almost-six-year-old. Here’s how we did NYC in just 24-hours:

Where I did not shout out “Liz Lemoooon!” in a faux Oprah voice (but I so wanted to).
