Belle  Writer & Photographer Embracing the chaos, finding the magic New Yorker always & forever 💕

SEVEN. Self-cut bangs. Wakes up early to make breakfast for her brothers. Counts the number of wild doves and sparrows and blue jays she spots in the park each day and quietly keeps track in her journal. Reads to me each night, tales of fairies in faraway lands, with such authority and gusto that it almost feels like she wrote the words herself. But the story she’s writing is just unfolding... a story that will take her to all the places she longs to go, a story where she plays it all, spends it all, gives it all away, let’s her soul pour out of her hands and voice and heart, because sharing what you have is the only way to make room for more good. Funny how we think we’re teaching them and all the while they’re gently teaching us. It’s been seven years of magic. 🎂 #BietLuna

“She and her brother Richie ran away from home one winter and camped out in the African Wing of the Public Archives. They shared a sleeping bag and survived on crackers and root beer. “ #lifeimitatingart

So today I sat for the first time for a non-human photographer, working with @google to test run their new camera that frames, adjusts for lighting, and shoots when everyone’s faces look best. I really really didn’t want to like the shots, because, quite honestly, the notion that the future is here freaks me out a little bit. But alas, I love them. And I’m starting to soften my stance that older is always better. Also kind of excited to actually be on the other side of the lens once in awhile. (the camera isn’t out yet but the link for more info is in my bio) ❤️ #googleclips #giftfromgoogle


Cut off 12 inches of hair between the two of us. Release, renew, allow, repeat. Here’s to a new year ❤️

Happy Christmas 🎈

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing 'Galway Bay'
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

PINK. My eleven-year-old self would be so proud. My thirty-three-year old self is utterly grateful. Thank you @yearanddayhome for these gorgeous dishes, they’re beautiful 💕 #giftfromyearandday #yearandday

The beauty in the loss. Leafing through all of the memories of that top tooth coming in- memories when she was brand new and we were both a little bit younger, before she learned how bright her voice could shine, before I learned that motherhood is as much about letting go as it is holding on- and slipping them under the pillow. And tomorrow it will all turn to precious treasure, as it does.
